I find that some Muslims who lecture about polygamy talk nonsense. They want Muslims to see the good in polygamy and accept it. They don’t want people to see it as a way of life that is out of date or bad. Sadly, they go about it in the wrong way.
Muslims who lecture about polygamy talk nonsense when they try to explain the good in polygamy. For instance, some say it helps correct social problems. To be frank, no one cares. Think about it. Who do you think would willingly place a financial, psychological, and spiritual burden on her or himself to cure social ills? First of all, social problems are a part of life that we can’t fix.
I say Muslims who lecture about polygamy talk nonsense, as I don’t think they get anyone to like polygamy by what they say
What they say won’t make a woman feel better about being in a polygamous marriage. It won’t change what she thinks about it. I’ve heard some of them say that polygamy is good for others but not for themselves. Therefore, what good is talking about it theoretically? It is mere vain talk. For the most part, it’s just hot air coming from the speaker’s mouth.
To talk about the worldly value of polygamy will not cause a wife to like that her husband is polygamous. It will not cause a woman who is single to suddenly like the idea of marrying a man who is already married. Furthermore, it won’t ease the pain that she feels. Hence, it’s useless talk.
Muslims who lecture about polygamy talk nonsense and Muslims in general do, as well
They don’t look at what is most important, which is that Allah allows polygamy for men. If the speaker does not emphasize that very important point, then anything else that he says doesn’t matter. If he doesn’t stress that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) lived a polygamous life, and he is our example, his speech lacks meaning. Those two facts are all a Muslim should need to hear to make him or her want to accept polygamy. It’s all about embracing what Allah says. What He says is the Truth and the Reality.
Allah speaks of polygamy in the Holy Quran and limits the number of wives that a man may have to four. He speaks about the wives of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), as well. They were the “Mothers of the Believers” He didn’t say, Mothers of Muslims. There is a difference between a Muslim and a Believer.
Muslims who lecture about polygamy talk nonsense instead of talking about why Muslims reject polygamy
It would make more sense for lecturers to speak about what causes women to dislike polygamy so much. Why are they in so much pain and agony when in a polygamous marriage? Why does the mere thought of her husband becoming polygamous cause her undue stress and worry? It’s what the lecturers need to speak about. It’s what I talk about at www.polygamy411.com .
Most Muslims think that all they need to do is look the part and talk the talk. Walking the walk to them is that they, for instance, pray sometimes or eat with the right hand or take the left sock off first or don’t talk while in the bathroom. It is not what belief is about. Belief is about accepting and living the Holy Quran. Maybe one day lecturers will talk about what truly matters.
