Celebrate Mercy–Help fight domestic violence, a video by Zeina Shaaban

Zeina Shaaban, a good friend of mine who is extremely dedicated to ending domestic violence and has protested in writing against the proposals of those who would prevent legal protections in Lebanon, has created a magnificent video denouncing domestic violence and marital rape, embedded below.

Contrasted against the stark, brutal reality of abuse, in the video she cites the Prophet (P) as an example of love, kindness, adoration, and tenderness within a marriage, and she demands that the Muslim community follow his example as is their duty in remaining true to Islamic Law.

Zeina has entered the video in a contest hosted by Celebrate Mercy in which she is a finalist, and you can vote for her by “liking” this post on Facebook, which will help in spreading her message.
