What does Islam say about marital rape?
Is there a punishment for it?

My friend recently came out of toxic marriage where this was a major reason for her khula, but a lot of people don't agree with her saying there's no such thing as *consent* with your husband.

1- If a woman gets married and does not state in her marriage contract that she can refuse her husband whenever she wants, then Islamically she is obligated to make herself available to her husband unless she has a valid excuse like a medical excuse.

2- However, this doesn’t mean that he can use physical force and hurt her. He can request or demand it, but he cannot hurt her.

3- If he physically hurt her then yes he deserves punishment for it.
