Wives can be happy in polygamy when they stop complaining about their lives. A wife may complain about what the other wife gets that she doesn’t have. For instance, it could be time with the husband or material things.
When it comes to material things, the wife who is a Muslim and is a believer would not get upset if she receives less from her husband than his other wife gets. It’s because she knows that all things come from Allah.
Wives need to know not everything that Allah gives someone is a blessing. Allah gives wealth and children to some to cause them agony. He gives others wealth and children as gifts or blessings. We don’t know why Allah has given a wife what she has.
Their complaint is really with Allah. It is often about what they desire that they aren’t getting. It’s about what they want more so than about any injustice that they think their husbands have done to them.
A believer is at peace in her life, as she remembers Allah often. She reads the Holy Quran to know what Allah says and she reflects on it. Furthermore, she uses it to sort out what is happening in her life.
Wives Can Be Happy in Polygamy, if they grow stronger in faith
Envy, which is a low, base emotion, causes some wives to think their husband aren’t just and fair in polygamous marriages. Why should we envy another for what Allah has given the other? It shows the person’s dissatisfaction with Allah.
Here is a gauge. If a wife feels something in her heart that doesn’t feel right when she learns that the other wife has received something that is good, she is envious. A heart that has envy in it is impure, and we cannot enter Paradise with an impure heart. Furthermore, only Allah can purify a heart.
Wives can be happy in polygamy, and the complaints would stop when they know that all things come from Allah. The wife no longer worries about what is just and fair. She becomes content and at peace in her life.
When it comes to what Allah has given others, what was given was for the person from Allah. If a wife has a problem with what another wife receives from their husband, be it time, wealth or love, she has a problem with Allah.
In conclusion, Allah is a just God. With regard to man, those who are unjust will account to Allah for it.
