A local bookstore in Canada has sold all its copies of “A Gift for Muslim Couple,” a Muslim marriage guide that advises men on how to beat and control their wives, a newspaper reported on Friday.
The 160-page book, published by Idara Impex in New Delhi, India, is written by Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, who is described in the book’s foreword as a “prolific writer on almost every topic of Islamic learning,” The Toronto Sun reported.
