Pakistan Council Tackles Polygamy

Pakistan council tackles polygamy

The Pakistan Council tackles polygamy. It would like to change some of the laws. The Pakistan’s Council of Islamic Ideology met in March 2014 to discuss the matter. The National Assembly of Pakistan would have to approve the changes. The council wants to make it necessary for a husband to get his wife’s permission before he could become polygamous.

The Pakistan Council wants to make it unlawful for a wife to seek a divorce on the grounds that her husband has become polygamous. It met on October 21, 2014 to discuss it. It wouldn’t matter that the wife had expressed her disapproval to her husband before he married another.

The Pakistan council tackles polygamy. It is dealing with issues we’ve already discussed here on the blog

The Pakistan council tackles polygamy. It is dealing with issues we’ve already discussed here on the blog. Some countries now have laws that say a husband must get his wife’s permission before he could become polygamous. I have always said a husband should talk with his wife or wives about his intent to marry another woman before he does it. He still does not need her consent. He does not need her to say yes he can.

What he does has an effect on her. Her life would be changed by him marrying another. Hence, he needs to talk with her about it. She should be allowed to comment. After he has spoken with her about it, he could make his intention to do it or not. He then must see what Allah had decided about it. It is Allah who decides our fate.

The Pakistan Council tackles polygamy, but not in a good way

The Pakistan Council tackles polygamy, but not in a good way. It is trying to pass  laws that are contrary to Islam. Any law that makes a husband get his wife’s permission before he can become polygamous goes against Islam. It’s a man-made law. It goes against Allah’s laws.

Allah allows polygamy for men. It’s in the Holy Quran. He never placed conditions on it such as the ones the council suggests. Allah does not give a wife the right to say no to what He has decided. The wife is not superior to Allah. She is not His partner or equal. Allah has no partner or equal. The wife has no right to oppose what Allah has allowed.

The Pakistan Council tackles polygamy. It is trying to take away a wife’s right to seek divorce

The Pakistan Council tackles polygamy. It is trying to take away a wife’s right to seek divorce. It is saying a divorce based on the fact that a husband has become polygamous is not enough. It is not grounds for a divorce.

Allah allows divorce. Men have a right to divorce. Women have similar rights as men. She does not, however, have a right to become polygamous. She has no right to have more than one husband.

If a wife’s only reason for a divorce is that her husband has become polygamous, it not a sound reason for divorce. She simply dislikes what Allah has decided. Her problem is not only with her husband, but is with her Creator. Her problem is with Allah. She will have to account to Allah for going up against Him.

Although she has no grounds for divorce in such a case, the Pakistan Council tackles polygamy wrongfully in trying to take the right to divorce away from the wife. The council wants to force a wife to stay in a marriage she doesn’t want. No one should have to stay in a marriage he or she does not want.

The Pakistan Council tackles polygamy in a wrong way. It’s considering a law that would oppress women

The Pakistan Council tackles polygamy in a wrong way. It’s considering a law that would oppress women. It would take away a wife’s right to divorce. To take the right to divorce away from women is oppressive.

I say, if a woman wants a divorce on the grounds that her husband has become polygamous, give her a divorce. Let her deal with her Creator about the matter. A husband shouldn’t keep his wife against her will. He shouldn’t enslave her in the marriage. Set her free. Why force a woman to stay married to someone whom she doesn’t want?

    Ana,
    This law u wrote about it is a worthless if they r thinking that it helps woman.It only creates more havoc because a man that wants to practice polygamy will demand his wife allow him to do it and he will tell her straight either give permission or He will divorce her.So it is worthless.I don’t know what people r thinking when they create such nonsense.

    @Gail,

    Their love of money reminds me of the song by the O’Jays:

    Money

    “For The Love Of Money”

    Money, money, money, money, money [6x]
    Some people got to have it
    Some people really need it
    Listen to me y’all, do things
    Do things, do bad things with it
    You wanna do things, do things
    Do things, good things with it
    Talk about cash money, money
    Talk about cash money
    Dollar bills, yall

    For the love of money
    People will steal from their mother
    For the love of money
    People will rob their own brother
    For the love of money
    People can’t even walk the street
    Because they never know
    Who in the world they’re gonna beat
    For that lean, mean, mean green
    Almighty dollar, money

    For the love of money
    People will lie, Lord, they will cheat
    For the love of money
    People don’t care who they hurt or beat
    For the love of money
    A woman will sell her precious body
    For a small piece of paper
    It carries a lot of weight
    Call it lean, mean, mean green

    Almighty dollar

    I know money is the root of all evil
    Do funny things to some people
    Give me a nickel, brother can you spare a dime
    Money can drive some people out of their minds

    Got to have it, I really need it
    How many things have I heard you say
    Some people really need it
    How many things have I heard you say
    Got to have it, I really need it
    How many things have I heard you say
    Lay down, lay down, a woman will lay down
    For the love of money
    All for the love of money
    Don’t let, don’t let, don’t let money rule you
    For the love of money
    Money can change people sometimes
    Don’t let, don’t let, don’t let money fool you
    Money can fool people sometimes
    People, don’t let money, don’t let money change you
    It will keep on changing, changing up your mind

    Money Pile

    Insha Allah, I’ll be back a bit later.

    Ana,
    I don’t want u to get the idea that all Pakistani people are whack a doodle.There really are some really nice people.Yes they believe culturally in the parents marrying their kids etc.. That is not the problem as much as these whack a doodles doing Polygamy with their daughters with a smile on their face all the while telling the Pakistani mans parents to get rid on the foreign wife eventually.Everything is done with a smile and a kiss.
    Decent people would not agree to Polygamy for their daughter if they didn’t really agree with polygamy understand.I will tell u this straight up.
    One thing I learned about Pakistani people esp.. the females is They DO NOT accept Polygamy.That is why Lah was so vocal and against Polygamy because it is just not accepted.The reason it is not accepted is very simple.The other wife is competition for the husbands money and property and time.Inheritance rights for their children.Pure old fashion Greed is the problem.
    I was seriously angry one day and I flat told my cowife DO NOT think your son will ever be above my son it will never happen.She started yelling at hubby saying do u hear what she just said.I was so angry I said do I need to repeat it for u or spell it out because I will looking her dead in the eyes.
    Let me explain and break it down for u Ana.What I was really telling her was Hey do not think your son is getting all the properties it will never happen because I have a son also and I have adopted your son so u better just back off because all properties are mine since I am the legal mother of both my husbands sons.She understood very clear she had no legal authority.Oh she tried to challenge me but when she did I reminded her that her dear hubby that she trusted on and followed blindly lead her straight to the slaughter house because he divorced her in Pakistani court and I was married in Pakistan court.I told her flat that her goose was cooked and hit the road jack if she thought she would get even one property from my husbands real estate.She could kiss it.
    I would like to mention she did not give a hoot for her kids to raise them or give them the property she wanted the property for her own family/parents so they could eat the rents.She didn’t know hubby was telling me everything behind her back so yeah she got the shock of her life.
    Nothing I hate more than a greedy person.

    Ana and Mari2,

    Mari2,

    Thank you for the article. Oh, okay, so those are the “bearded” men people speak of? I see…

    It’s amazing that it has come to this. Allah in the Holy Quran tells us that He has made the Quran easy to understand and remember. Most Muslims dismiss the Quran. Allah says He has protected the Quran. No one can tamper with it, but they can tamper with all other books and material.

    People disregard the Quran and look to other books to use to makes laws and rules that they like. The Quran is a Book that brings justice to mankind. Men don’t want justice for women. They don’t want what is just and fair for all of mankind, including women, thus they tossed the Quran aside. In the world today, anyone who looks to the Quran is considered a baaaaaad person. I see why.

    There is a reason it has come to this. Allah is a Just God. We shall learn the Truth of the matter one day without a doubt.

    I’m not going to comment about marriage age either. But what I will do is comment in a very loud voice about the crap Pakistan’s CII has done to women:

    One, very unjust example.

    Mari2,

    I won’t comment here on the age issue about marriage. I commented one time here about it and the ignorant, illiterate, fools from another blog LIED about what I said, twisted it, and took it out of context. I’ll just pass on commenting on the matter for now.

    I assume the administrator of the site must have had a well deserved breakdown. Perhaps she had too many peckers (phallus) (from her two husbands) coming at her everyday. She didn’t know which way was up Maybe she’ll be better soon and maybe not…

    Mari2,

    Thank you for the scoop on the CII (Council of Islamic Ideology). I suppose they may get one or two things right, but overall they’re pretty much jacked up/out to lunch/don’t know what time it is/don’t have a friggin clue. It’s way sad.

    I read (not in the Quran) in an Islamic book that the people get the leaders they deserve. The saying always resonated with me. I truly think it applies to Pakistan.

    @Spirit, no offense intended!!! No offense intended towards any of my friends from Pakistan. I’m just expressing myself on the topic at hand.

    Be aware to that the CII in Pakistan has also ruled that women are forbidden to divorce and marriage can be done as early as age 9 years. Rape victims must have four witnesses to the rape or it’s not rape. The CII in Pakistan are nothing more than cave men pushing the Islamic rights of women back into the 16th century and beyond. A bunch of illiterate mullahs. Anything out of the mouth of any spokesperson of the CII pisses me off in ways I cannot describe. I can only pray that Allah sends them ALL to hell. They are also the ones behind the blasphemy laws that uphold sectarian killings. Stay far far away from CII. They are to Islam what Rush Limbagh is to Christianity.
