In Islam neither polyandry ( a woman with multiple male partners/ husband) nor polyamory ( both man and wife having other multiple partners) is recognized.
Polyguny is a blessing for mankind if it’s rules are implemented accordingly
The sad reality in our so called modern days of wisdom is that you see some Muslims, especially sisters, leaving Islam and speaking against polygyny.
Please note that Allah concluded HIS message to mankind with the religion of Islam, and HE tells us that HE will not accept any religion other than that. ALLAH delivered this: “and whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:85]. Clear warning warning my dear sisters and brothers.
Also note that Allah does not permit anything if it is not good for us. Thirdly, it’s totally wrong to blame Allah and Islam due to the wrong actions of some Muslims. Our priority individually is to please Allah seeking his mercy and guidance in return for his paradise regardless of how your husband or wife treat you. We all know Allah permitted polygamy on conditions to be met else without those conditions polygamy will be forbidden to men.
We are all aware that FAIRNESS and financial power are serious ingredients for polygamy to be permissible. If you are unable to cater and treat your first wife well, do not even attempt a second wife as that may be a curse in your life and may cause you hellfire. Sisters must avoid accepting to be second wife without researching about how he treats the first wife and whether or not he is capable financially. Do not blame Islam or Allah for the mess in your marriage if you failed to research about the brother and sister. Do not marry a sister if she does not have eemaan to respect polygamy and support you to be fair in your marriage. Rely on Allah to guide and change your husband instead of taking matters into your own hands and harming, defaming or disrespecting him for cheating and unfairness to you as some do.
Polygyny is a blessing if you can afford and apply justice to it so let’s not blame Allah indirectly by speaking against it but rather blame those men for their ignorance and lack of Eman/Faith and make the right choice from the beginning.
