Narrated Mu’awiyah ibn Haydah: I said, Apostle of Allah, how should we approach our wives and how should we leave them? He replied: Approach your tilth when or how you will, give her (your wife) food when you take food, clothe when you clothe yourself, do not revile her face, and do not beat her.
Muslim, Book 30, Hadith 5756.
Aisha reported that Allah’s Messenger never beat anyone with his hand, neither a woman nor a servant, but only, in the case when he had been fighting in the cause of Allah.

Quran 4:34

    There’s harmonisation between Qur’an and Hadith.
    Q.4, 34 talks about the limit of raising hands against the female rebels. Women should not be killed in the war, except as in the indirect response. At most, she would just be beaten on purpose to spare her life in the war, and to subdue her thru slavery.
    Muslim, Book 30, Hadith 5756.
    Aisha reported that Allah’s Messenger never beat anyone with his hand, neither a woman nor a servant, but only, in the case when he had been fighting in the cause of Allah.

    The Hadith makes explanation for the Arabic word “Nushuz”. Hadith reveals that the context of raising one’s hand against the women is in a fighting in the cause of Allah, that is the battlefield.
