Oh well, this post was inspired by someone who’ve been asking me, ‘will you practice polygamy?’, and secondly, in the event of the local artist who facing hard times in their live.
My answer = If I can be responsible to my wive(s) : yes , if can’t be responsible : will not. After my answer, I further my explanation because public nowadays have a different understanding towards polygamy thus the women tend to be sensitive with this issue. It’s stated in Al-Quran that
“If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two, or three, or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess. That will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice. ” – An Nisa 4:3
I didn’t dare to go against it so if I can’t be responsible towards many responsibility that is becoming a husband of two,three, four wives, I surely reserve my seat in Hell for not following the teachings of Islam.
But apart from my answer that i want to share, i want to share what the truth behind Polygamy in Islam that I learn. I learn this at Islamic Information & Services. In the end of this article,I hope the readers will understand and know the truth.
