Investigation of Student Punishment Permission by a Teacher in Shia Jurisprudence
Hadi Gholamreza Ravi, Mohammad Nozari ferdosieh
Islam has paid special attention to human education so that one of the important tasks of parents and teachers that Islam has introduced is raising children. Physical punishment is one of the ways of raising and castigation of children, which, of course, is the last step in preventing children from making mistakes and deviations. Physical punishment has not been approved by the educational system of Islam for the purpose of raising as a training method,but it has been confirmed innarrations in some specific cases. The result of all the narrations is that punishing students is permissible for the sins that are not legal or discretionary (Ta'zir) and is determined based on the expediency and the discretion of the teacher. In case of doubt as to whether the student deserves punishment by doing so, the teacher is not entitled to punishment and in case of doubt in the intensity of punishment, it should be specified and does not exceed. However, it is better to use other effective punishments instead of physical punishment.
