I tell all wives who are in a polygamous marriage to remember Allah when in polygamy. Many wives who are in polygamous marriages begin the marriages off wrong. They remember other people and things instead of remembering Allah.
Why is it so important to remember Allah? It’s because it’s what Allah has instructed us to do. Allah tells us in an ayah (verse) in the Holy Quran that remembrance of Him is the greatest thing in life without doubt. It means no one and nothing are deserving of remembrance more than Allah. Nonetheless, most people don’t pay attention to what Allah says.
Wives could easily test if they remember Allah when in polygamy
We need only to realize our thoughts each day. How many times do Allah come to mind? Is it all day, a part of a day or not at all that day? We should remember Him all day. We could go about our regular chores, take care of our responsibilities and remember Allah at the same time.
Especially remember that Allah is God. He is our Creator who created all things. He created our mates and selected them for us. Although we think we decided, we did not. Allah did. He determined before we were born who we’d marry. In fact, before we were born, He decided all that would happen to us.
When the husband marries again, does the wife immediately remember Allah when in polygamy?
The wife begins to remember her husband more than anything else when he becomes polygamous. She usually remembers her husband or her husbands’ other wife or her husband and his other wife. As a result, she forgets Allah.
The wives become preoccupied in their minds with their husbands and co-wives. No good comes from it being that the husband and the co-wives can do no good or harm to anyone unless Allah wills it. All good comes from Allah. So why consume her thoughts with persons who don’t matter? Why does she remember all but Allah when her husband becomes polygamous?
For instance, when a husband buys a wife a gift or treats her extra special, she usually is happy for the moment. She may show her gratitude to him with a smiles or by being super warm and kind towards him. Maybe she becomes extra nice to him in the bedroom. It’s all very nice, but did she remember Allah? Oops, I don’t think she did.
Did she remember the gift her husband gave her came from Allah? Her husband was only the vehicle to deliver it. Did she get down on her prayer rug and thank Allah for the gift that He sent her by way of her husband? Many times she doesn’t, which is very sad.
It is important for a wife to remember Allah when in polygamy, if she wants peace and tranquility in her marriage
A wife needs to know what Allah expects of her. What does He command of us? We have to remember Allah and be thankful to Him. A wife should take to her prayer rug and show gratitude to Allah. Many wives don’t do it.
Why doesn’t she get down on her prayer rug? She may not pray at all or doesn’t pray as often as she should. Maybe she doesn’t know that Allah has given her the gifts and has given her all that she has. She may have simply forgotten Allah.
Remember that Allah remembers those who remember Him. If she doesn’t remember Allah, He doesn’t remember her. Remember Allah when in polygamy.
Remembrance of Allah is the Greatest thing in life without doubt. Let’s make our intent and a conscious effort to remember Allah always.
