Domestic Violence in the Perspective of Islamic Law

Ila Nadhila, Lisa Anugrah, Muhammad Ilham, Alimuddin Alimuddin, Rahma Amir


This research describes Domestic Violence (Kekerasan Dalam Rumah Tangga/KDRT) and the factors that trigger this violence. This type of research is literary in nature with the approach used in this research being a qualitative approach as the approach used in writing. Data can be obtained from various references such as document studies and research results, national and international journals. The results obtained show that the general public often only understands domestic violence as physical violence, even though domestic violence can take the form of physical, psychological, sexual or domestic neglect. Bullying to carry out treatment, demands or deprivation of freedom that is contrary to the law, is also included in the household scope. Violence can arise due to economic problems, lack of understanding of each party's religion or disharmony between family members. Therefore, it is important to avoid this in order to create a harmonious family.
