My dilemma is an abusive but practicing Muslim husband

He has been beating me up much worse than my first husband. He slaps me on my face mostly, and would bruise me all over even when I was pregnant with his son, but he did not hit on my stomach. Once he slapped me on my ear so hard that my ear drum split, and I couldn’t hear for 10 days, after which it self-healed Alhumdulillah! He beats me and uses the filthiest swear words on me in front of our children. My boys 3 and 2 are now saying swear words and hitting me whenever I forbid them from something.
