To reject polygamy shows disbelief in what is a part of Islam. It is not an option for a believer to reject polygamy. No Muslim likes when someone calls her a disbeliever. However, to reject polygamy is a sure sign that she is one.
To reject polygamy shows disbelief, as it means that she does not believe that Allah is All Knowing, All Seeing, and All Wise. Allah allowed polygamy for men, as noted in the Holy Quran. He has limited the number of wives that a man may have at the same time to four. It was the way of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and he is our example.
Therefore, no one should have to convince anyone that polygamy is good. After all, what is in the Holy Quran is enough. The person either believes or doesn’t. There is no in between. If someone doesn’t believe in what Allah has allowed, she or he is an unbeliever. It’s just that simple. Certainly, it rubs the unbeliever the wrong way to hear it.
To reject polygamy shows disbelief when one accepts only some of the Holy Quran
Allah says those who accept part of the Quran and not all of it are unbelievers. She or he mustn’t have a problem with it. In other words, to reject polygamy shows disbelief, as she thinks she knows better than Allah. Surprisingly, she thinks Allah did not know what He was doing when He allowed polygamy.
No one has to persuade a believer to accept as true what Allah has put forth in the Holy Quran. A believer doesn’t question what is in it. Non-believers or unbelievers tend to debate about what is in the Holy Quran. It’s not up for a debate for the believer. There is no need to argue it. It is clear.
Many Muslims don’t believe that to reject polygamy shows disbelief
If a Muslim encounters one who wants to debate about anything that is in the Holy Quran, she should turn away from him or her. She should remove herself from the gathering. It’s what Allah tells us to do. We should do it in a non-fussy and non-arrogant way.
Allah, in the Holy Quran, tells Muslims not to engage in vain talk about His signs. He tells us that the unbeliever is “deaf, dumb, and blind.” So why would one waste valuable time talking to someone who can’t hear or understand? Don’t try to make someone get it.
Allah decided who will be a non-Muslim and who will be a Muslim. Furthermore, He decided who would be a Believer (Muslims and believers are different). We don’t decide it. Allah says warning is for the believer. Those who aren’t a believer won’t listen, because they have ears that hear not. Besides, if the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) couldn’t get all to accept Allah’s words, what makes us think that we can do it? He couldn’t get his uncle to accept it. In conclusion, contemplate what a believer is.
