A clip unveiled by the Middle East Media Research Institute
(MEMRI) this week shows Michigan-based Shiite Imam Bassem al-
Sheraa “educating” students on the role of “wife-beating.”

According to the video, the imam tells the class at the Az-
Zahraa Islamic Center in Detroit that when the Quran references
such a physical act toward one’s wife, it is a "beating" that
should be conducted without causing pain or any red markings;
but as a reminder to the woman that she “misbehaved in cases
when words (of admonishment) do not make her change her ways.”

“It is just like when your child reaches to touch the electrical
socket or a fire, what do you do? You go like that,” Sheraa
explained. “It is just like when your child picks up something
dangerous and is about to eat it. You hit his hand like that as
a reminder. That is what ‘beating’ means.”

The video was uploaded to the Az-Zahraa Islamic Center’s YouTube
channel on May 27, 2019.

Sheraa and the Al-Zahraa Islamic Center did not respond to a
request for comment.

In late January, he also came under fire for what many deemed an
“anti-Semitic” lecture uploaded to YouTube in which he claimed
that Jews have distorted sacred texts and sanctioned the killing
of prophets, MEMRI noted.

“He accused the Jews of employing tricks and fraud in matters of
religion and morality, and of amassing gold and spreading
usury,” the report continued, underscoring that Jews have used
their “peculiar philosophy” to attain power and control the
modern banking system, and that Jewish women have long founded
and managed “dens of female iniquity” and ran European brothels.

A MEMRI analyst told Fox News that the apparent firebrand
“spiritual leader” Sheraa immigrated to the U.S. from Iraq, but
it is unclear when and is the founder of the Scholarly Najaf
Hawza in Northern America – Michigan. He also refers to himself
as Hujjat al-Islam wal-Muslimin, which means a Shiite source of

“Most Shiite Muslims in America oppose the Iranian regime,
especially Iranians, but pro-regime figures hold the leadership
positions,” added Ryan Mauro, director of the Clarion
Intelligence Network which monitors extremism. “It is important
for videos like this to be preserved for research purposes.”
