Domestic violence is one of the most common types of human violence prevalent since ancient times. Violence has increased in contemporary societies, its causes have varied, its forms and colours have varied, and its effects on our Islamic societies have begun to appear tangible. Domestic violence has become one of the most important contemporary family problems. Especially, with the increasing forms and types of increasing violence and the consequent adverse effects on the family and community stability. The Shariah has dealt with this violence that may cause the dissolution of the family and the disintegration of its foundations, so Islamic Shariah law has put in place the provisions and regulations that guarantee the protection, stability and survival of the family.
