Most translations of the Qur’an influenced by fabricated Hadith convey the erroneous meaning that wife-beating is allowed in Islam.
From QXP (The Qur’an As It Explains Itself)

4:34 Men are the protectors and maintainers of women. They shall take full care of women with what they spend of their wealth. Allah has made men to excel in some areas and women to excel in some areas. Men must see to it that women are provided for, and that they are able to stand on their feet in the society. So, righteous women are obedient to Allah’s Ordinances and guard their moral values even in privacy, the Values that Allah Commands to be guarded. If you experience rebellion from women, and they stand up against you, apprise them of possible consequences. Next, leave them in their resting places apart from you. And keep admonishing them with examples that they stop rebelling. If they pay heed to you, seek not a way against them. Allah is Most High, Great.

[‘Nushooz’ = to stand up 2:259, 58:11; to stand up against, to rebel / ‘wa’az’ = to apprise of consequences 2:231, 3:66 / ‘dharb’ = example 13:17, 16:74, 36:13; ‘dharb’ = to stop 18:11, 43:5 = To embark upon a journey 4:101 = Strike the road (begin to travel) 4:101 = To give examples 4:34, 13:17, 16:74, 36:13, 43:58 = To abstain from something 43:5 = To stop or prevent 4:34, 43:5 = To strike someone or something 2:60, 8:12, 7:160-161]
