Satan is an evil companion to wives who are in polygamous marriages, if their focus isn’t on Allah. A wife may have a difficult time believing that her polygamous husband could love her and another woman at the same time. What causes a wife to doubt her husband’s love for her? It’s Satan.
Satan whispers to her, and she listens to him. All the negative thoughts that play and replay in her head are Satan’s whispers. He whispers negative things to her to cause her to doubt herself, as well.
While in a polygamous marriage, Satan is an evil companion to wives who don’t remember Allah
If she remembered Allah, Satan would not be in her head. Of course Satan would pop in every now and again. However, the wife has to get to a point in which she can quash the thoughts. A wife should know when he has shown up. She then can rid herself of him.
Allah says he gives those who don’t remember Him an evil companion. It’s Satan. It could be Satan’s agents (non-believers), as well. His agents don’t remember Him; therefore Allah doesn’t remember them. He says that He remembers those who remember Him. Allah says remembrance of him is the greatest thing in life without doubt. It makes Satan go away.
For instance, Satan is an evil companion to wives when he tells them that the younger wives are the better wives
He uses that to upset the older wife. The younger wife is not necessarily the better wife. I feel safe in saying that the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) first wife Khadijah was the love of his life. She was fifteen years older than him. Other than Aishah, many of his wives were not very young.
When he was polygamous, the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) youngest wife Aishah was his favorite wife. It was because she was the most learned. Aishah had the most knowledge of Islam. She was strong in her belief in Allah. Additionally, she was the daughter of one of the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) dearest companions.
A husband who is a believer will most likely favor the most righteous wife. A husband who is more concerned with this world’s life and not the Hereafter may favor the less pious, less righteous wife.
Satan is an evil companion to wives, and they must fight him to come out on top
It’s what she must do to win in a polygamous marriage and in this world’s life. The most righteous servant of Allah is what a wife should strive for.
It is a wife’s personal jihad (battle). If she gives into Satan, she loses all. She can only win with the help and permission of Allah.
