Misconception 7

All Muslim men marry four wives.The religion of Islam was revealed for all societies and all times andso accommodates widely differing social requirements. Circumstances may warrant the taking of another wife but the right is granted, according to the Quran, only on condition that the husband is scrupulously fair. No woman can be forced into this kind of marriage if they do not wish it, and they also have the right to exclude it intheir marriage contract.

Polygamy is neither mandatory, nor encouraged, but merely permitted. Images of "sheikhs with harems" are not consistent with Islam, as aman is only allowed at most four wives only ifhe can fulfill the stringent conditions of stringent conditions of treating each fairly and providing each with separate housing etc. Permission to practice polygamy is not associated with mere satisfaction of passion. It is rather associated with compassion toward widows and orphans. It was the Quran that limited and put conditions on the practice of polygamy among the Arabs, who had as many as ten or more wives and considered them "property". It is both honest and accurate to say that it is Islam that regulated this practice, limited it,made it more humane, and instituted equal rights and status for all wives. What the Qur'anic decrees amount to, taken together is discouragement of polygamy unless necessity for it exists. It is also evident that the general rule in Islam is monogamy and not polygamy. It is a very tiny percentage of Muslims that practice it over the world.
However, permission to practice limited polygamy is only consistent with Islam's realistic view of the nature of man and woman of man and woman and of various social needs, problems and cultural variations. The question is, however far more thanthe inherent flexibility ofIslam; it also is the frank and straightforward approach of Islam indealing with practical problems. Rather than requiring hypocriticaland superficial compliance, Islam delves deeper into the problems of individuals and societies, and provides for legitimate and clean solutions which are far more beneficial than would be the case if they were ignored. There is no doubt that the second wife legally married And treated kindly better off than a mistress without any legal rights or expermanence.
