Our dear LB is a "scholar" Alhamdullilah we kuffar found a "scholar"!

>the strong and loving family bond, as a whole, in the Islamic community.

Mashallah!

Now help us our dear LB. I have been asking Muslims in this forum and I never get answers about سورة النساء ٣٤ so may be I will have better luck with you. It says in the verse that men are instructed by your Allah to واضربوهن and the subject here would be wives of Muslims like you

So I have a few questions for you:

1 You will find below a link to the Qur'an Corpus and many translations by mostly Tablighees like you from India and Pakistan. So Yusuf Ali translates it as: "Beat them (lightly)" You tell us where would we find the word "lightly" in the Quranic text? Or is Yusuf Ali making things up and he is a blatant liar? Help us our dear LB

2. Arberry translates it as: "And beat them" and no lightly here. Why is that our dear LB? Was he a liar? or an Islamophobe? Help O Guru of wisdom!

3. And while we are at it how come every tablighee and his cousin is translating the Qur'an? Why not just translate it to their language Urdu?

4. Why would Allah tell his followers to واضربوهن? And do you beat your wife our dear LB? And how do you beat your wife? Hint: your Allah does not tell us the "how" right?

5. Is it true that Abul Qasim aka Muhammad used to beat his 6 year old wife, oh what was her name? 'Aisha may be?, until her skin becomes "green" (read this as bruised) So do you beat your wife until her skin is "green"? And would you allow a 53 year old man with many wives and concubines to marry your 6 year old daughter? I'm just curious

6. And here is your bonus question: Are the researchers at the Pew Institution a bunch of liars and Islamophobes because they found that 23% of Muslims born in a Muslim family in the US leave Islam? And why do they leave Islam? Could it be because they find that beating a wife is just crazy and criminal? And so much for the "loving family bonds" in Muslim families

7. Did 23% of your children leave Islam?

Here is a link to The Qur'an Corpus translations

http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=4&verse=34

And here is a link to an Arabic dictionary and the root ضرب which is the root of the Quranic word اضربهون

https://www.almaany.com/en/dict/ar-en/%D8%B6%D8%B1%D8%A8/

And it is Arabic/English translation and it says that it means: Battery, assault! Not my words!

I will be waiting for your answers with great anticipation
