Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips and Jameelah Jones in the book “ Polygamy In Islam”.) Polygamy in Islam plurality of wives is one of the controversial questions in the family system of Islam.

Also, Islam has emphasized that the basic objective of healthy marital life come to love and benevolence between the husband and the wife winch the normally cab be found in from regular marriage monogamy. It is understood by all sane reasonable people that due to the obligation involved in plural marriages a man should ascertain whether or not he can support another wife marrying again. If a man is experiencing difficulty meeting the basic socioeconomic requirement necessary for one and family, he should not further strain his financial and emotional abilities by marriage another unless she is self supporting or wealthy women who is ready to join the fortune to his. There is no blame on either party such an arrangement is mutually agreed upon as the Prophet first wife, Khadeejah, aided him in this way.

Nonetheless. nor be should it be used as a threat to make the husband comply to any unreasonable demands on part. as the Prophet said. a husband still to be in fairly stable economic position in case his self supporting second or third wife decides to stop working or become unable to do so due to pregnancy or illness. The Prophet asked him if he had many properties. The receipt of welfare checks by married women especially in the case of plural marriages. A man without a legitimate source of income should not marry according to Islam law until he has the means to provide for family. which are among the most despicable taints that Muslim may posses. He dint not like people to depend upon charity when other means of existence were possible. A man has to use his natural abilities and seem. a women receiving a monthly subsistence check from the American government can not be considered self-supporting. The Prophet Muhammad never avoided hard work and he praised those who did likewise.
