DISCLAIMER. This is not meant to be a fatwa on the matter. Rather, it is a collection of the opinions expressed in multiple publications. One should always seek a fatwa from a scholar knowledgeable about the topics of marriage contracts and their consequences. A woman may include a clause in the marriage contract to be the only wife according to a good ...

The hadith you quoted has another version in Al-Tabarani's Al-Mu'jam Al-Awṣat, hadith 7647, starting with "Whoever gets married, ..." (also narrated through Anas ibn Mālik). The condition set forth is being married. When the condition of marriage is fulfilled, one may have fulfilled half of one's religion. Multiple marriages, concurrent or in sequence, are ...

No, it's forbidden in the Qur'an: And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right hands possess. [This is] the decree of Allah upon you. ... -- Qur'an 4:24 See also Islam Awakened for further translations. Some women have strong sexual desires, but this is not listed as an exception. Her husband should be making reasonable ...

Yes, it is permitted and was indeed the case over time. Here, I am starting off with your premise that neither Judaism nor Christianity permit more than one wife. Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal documented the story of a number of companions who had married Jews and Christians while they were married to other Muslim women. حدثني أبي قال حدثنا محمد بن جعفر قال حدثنا ...

Yes, it forbids marrying more than four, but not from Qur'an alone can one derive this ruling; neither the tafsir, nor the reasons for revelation in isolation. This is especially the case when based on a single verse that could mean multiple things (Arabic: ظنى الدلاله). Rulings are typically derived from multiple sources, Islamic and linguistic, by scholars ...

The fatwa you are referring to is based on a declaration of the International Islamic Fiqh Academy from October 1986 it is case 5 from a list of 5 cases which have been considered as haram. And it is explained why: It was determined that the first five methods are all haraam according to sharee’ah and are forbidden completely in and of themselves, or ...

As far as I have been with scholars and studied the Qur'an and Sunnah I have not come across any such particular reason for going into polygamy. And Allah has said in the Quran [4:3]: then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one or those your right hand possesses. ...

The general principle in Islamic jurisprudence, when not dealing with acts of worship, is that everything is halal unless there's evidence showing it to be haram. The concept of marriage, which included polygynous marriages, was already established in the pre-Islamic period and would've been well-known to the people of the time. The only proof from the Qur'...

No the permission for polygny is bound to certain conditions which no normal human being is able to fulfill to 100%. That's why Allah added the words like "if you fear"(see in 4:3). Secondly it is human nature that a wife wouldn't like to share her husband and Allah knows his creation best. Finally scholars consider the condition of being the lonely wife ...

Due to the lack of information. In your case there are two possibilities as far as I understood -assuming that your marriage was legal and valid according Islam-: Either you have made it a condition for marriage that your husband leaves you as his lonely wife (and it is written down on 'aqd an-Nikah or witnessed by the witnesses of your nikah): In this case ...

Note that this incident happened after fath Mekka. There are several ahadith quoting the words: Fatima is a part of me. He in fact tortures me who tortures her. (sahih Muslim) إِنَّمَا فَاطِمَةُ بَضْعَةٌ مِنِّي يُؤْذِينِي مَا آذَاهَا One which might get close to the one you posted is: I heard Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) who was on the pulpit, saying, ...

Indeed, it is deceptive to marry a second wife without the first wife knowing about the second (or without the second wife knowing about the first). However, scholars consider such a marriage would ordinarily be valid. Scholars acknowledge this, e.g.: Lying and deception are, without doubt, two of the major sins and from among the enormities (kaba’ir). ...

Yes, each wife has the right to be treated equally as good the other wife of one husband. Polygamy in Islam is based on treating all wives equally and with justice as per Quran. Else the man is asked to marry only one. O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and ...

Husband have to provide the acceptable housing and living for his wives. It is not about pleasure only. It is primarily a responsibility. The relationship between him and his wives have to be private and no one shall see it even his other wives. Although having visits between wives and spending good time in halal actions is good thing. I hope I ...

Firstly, you don't owe any maintenance\money to your husband, rather your husband owes maintenance to you, its called nafqah and is an integral part of marriage. Quran 2:233 ... Upon the father is their provision and clothing according to what is acceptable ... Quran 65:6 Lodge them [in a section] of where you dwell out of your means and do not ...

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a man refusing polygamy regardless of wealth. His wealth should be made accessible to the Muslim community through zakat and charity (sadaqa), not at all required to be by marriage. Also, it should be noted that polygamy is not required in Islam. On the contrary, the requirements for marriage to multiple spouses are ...

Another Shia argument why the hadith cannot be authentic: Ali ibn Abi Talib never intended to have a second wife whilst he was married to the daughter of the prophet, as it was not a "normal" marriage. Allah (swt) decided the marriage of Ali and Fatimah and it was celebrated in the heavens. The Prophet was informed about Allah's (swt) decision by Gibraeel. ...

Shias believe that the narration regarding Imam Ali isn't true: As the prophet is commanding against Qur'an. According to Qur'an any man is allowed to marry up to 4 women. The narrator of the this narration is Meswar ibn Makhrama (مسور بن مخرمه) who is an enemy of the Ahl al-Beyt. He was from a Khawarij. From Al-Zahabi's Siyar A'lam al-Nubala Vol. 3 Pg. 391 ...

There is no need to take the wife's consent for new marriage As it is the right for a man to have 4 wives due to Qur'an. This Fatwa has another aspect, which the second or several marriage is under the country laws. For example, In Iran if you marry another woman without your wife's consent, your first wife can go to the court and take her divorce from her ...

I don't know of any narration or anything that would directly address what you are asking. Likely there isn't. Simply said, men should act fairly among their wives. So my answer is basically my understanding by putting pieces together. There are things to consider though. Say you are marrying the princess of England and at the same time you are marrying a ...

ALl perfect praise be to Allah Nikah is a contract between husband and wife, and mahr is agreed upon amount by these 2 persons for this contract to be valid. There is no mention of mahr to be same for all wives of a person. Nor commanded by Allah in quran or mentioned by his messenger anywhere. But as of the above mentioned hadees, we can take it as ...

Basically there's no shari'a based objection to this marriage. As what is haram is said in verse (4:23): Prohibited to you [for marriage] are ... and that you take [in marriage] two sisters simultaneously, ... The sunnah added the simultaneous marriage of a woman and her aunt (maternal or paternal). Ibn 'abd-Al-Barr in his Istidhkar added a helpful ...

Islam has allowed polygamy as a solution for social problems and exceptional circumstances under strict conditions. If the conditions are not met, then the man should not marry a second wife. If there are exceptional circumstances and the conditions are met, than there is no reason to consider, that marrying a second/third or even fourth wife is makruh. ...

There are some obligatory circumstances and some recommended circumstances. There are three obligatory circumstances: The man should perform justice between wives. The number of current permanent wives should not be more than 4 If the man wants to marry with the children of sister or brother of his past wife should firstly obtain the permission for new ...
