    How do you apply the hadith to men when the Quran specifically tells men to separate from the rebellious wife.

    How can a scholar deceive? For what?

    Allah must3an. This action, from laziness or malice or apathy causes the dissolution of marriages, and the hadith is straight forward. Itaqillah ya nas.
