How Many Wives/husbands Are Muslims Entitled To In A Lifetime?

There is this practice in Islam where a man is allowed to marry 4 wives, provided he can love all of them equally.

Now tell me can a man love 4 women equally?

Secondly, when the man is tired of one or more of the wives, he divorces her/them and go again to equate the number to 4 and again divorces and marries more until he ends up marrying an uncountable number of women.

And for the woman so divorced, she is given a divorce certificate and off she goes and get married to another man. And if her new husband does not desire her any longer, he divorces her and she goes back to her first husband.

Methink that this thing called Islam give them enough room to go about promiscuiting. No wonder they marry them as soon as they come out from their mothers' womb and many of them end up with V.V.F so that they will keep on circulating from one man to the other

Firstly, for those who think Isl'am is all about marrying four wives and divorcing them, you're wrong. No religious Mu'slim man will divorce four women for the sake of having a new taste of women. I don't know why people (Christians) don't seem to understand that marrying more women is better than the adultery most of their married men and women pursuit. Not all men are alike some may be satisfied with one woman while others may not.

The wicked thought that the poster posted saying you're able to recycle women as long as you don't marry four at a time is just another way of knowing that you don't know anything about Isla'm, because no devoted Musl'im will do such. And God Himself dislikes divorce

Having 4 wives at any single time is not unislamic. But having more at anytime is unIslamic. But a man can have just one wife or more but higher than 4 at anytime. Also it is not acceptable for a person who could get maried to not do so.

So to ignore the fact that Mu/hammad (as) was the prophet and messenger who came after Jesus (as), does not change the fact. Al/lah is sufficient as a Witness.

Now if you hate the hadiths,see what Allah says in the Koran,3 translations for clarity

002.230

YUSUFALI: So if a husband divorces his wife (irrevocably), He cannot, after that, re-marry her until after she has married another husband and He has divorced her. In that case there is no blame on either of them if they re-unite, provided they feel that they can keep the limits ordained by Allah. Such are the limits ordained by Allah, which He makes plain to those who understand.

PICKTHAL: And if he hath divorced her (the third time), then she is not lawful unto him thereafter until she hath wedded another husband. Then if he (the other husband) divorce her it is no sin for both of them that they come together again if they consider that they are able to observe the limits of Allah. These are the limits of Allah. He manifesteth them for people who have knowledge.

SHAKIR: So if he divorces her she shall not be lawful to him afterwards until she marries another husband; then if he divorces her there is no blame on them both if they return to each other (by marriage), if they think that they can keep within the limits of Allah, and these are the limits of Allah which He makes clear for a people who know.

look at mutah marriage in action.

A woman divorced her husband,married another whom she divorced before consummation and wanted to remarry her first husband,Mo said no,she must sleep with the second husband.

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3357:

'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about a woman whom a man married and then divorced her, and then she married (another) person, and she was divorced before sexual intercourse with her, whether it was lawful for her first husband (to marry her in this state). He (the Holy Prophet) said: No, until he has tasted her sweetness.

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3253:

Rabi' b. Sabra reported that his father went on an expedition with Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) during the Victory of Mecca, and we stayed there for fifteen days (i. e. for thirteen full days and a day and a night), and Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) permitted us to contract temporary marriage with women. So I and another person of my tribe went out, and I was more handsome than he, whereas he was almost ugly. Each one of us had a cloaks, My cloak was worn out, whereas the cloak of my cousin was quite new. As we reached the lower or the upper side of Mecca, we came across a young woman like a young smart long-necked she-camel. We said: Is it possible that one of us may contract temporary marriage with you? She said: What will you give me as a dower? Each one of us spread his cloak. She began to cast a glance on both the persons. My companion also looked at her when she was casting a glance at her side and he said: This cloak of his is worn out, whereas my cloak is quite new. She, however, said twice or thrice: There is no harm in (accepting) this cloak (the old one). So I contracted temporary marriage with her, and I did not come out (of this) until Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) declared it forbidden.

Mu'tah means enjoyment---(ref.6, p. 424)

MU'TAH. Lit. "Usufruct, enjoyment." A marriage contracted for a limited period, for a certain sum of money. Such marriages are still legal amongst the Shi'ahs, and exist in Persia (Malcom's Persia vol.II.p. 591) to the present day, but they are said to be unlawful by the Sunnis. They were permitted by the Arabian Prophet at Autas, and are undoubtedly the greatest stain upon the moral legislation but the Sunnis say that he afterwards prohibited a mu'tah marriage at Khaibar (Vide Mishkat, book xii. Ch iv. Pt2.).

@nossycheek,

You should read your bible, the stories of some prophets that married more than one and some even had concubines

Now read Luke 20 v 27-36 and tell me your understanding of the verses

Who is the the blasphemous one? You or we? Methink you have not gone to Aro as earlier recommended.

Are the christians that married more than one wife permitted to do that or are they doing their personal will which is against the will of God? That is different from the practice prescribed for moslems by Islam.

Let us know the causes please. And after sleeping with countless wives and tempos, you still have 72 virgins with self regenerating hymen to sleep with if you commit suicide. Is that all you people think of in Islam?

Please how can I get the self-regenarating hymen? I have lost mine!

I am sick and tired of your perverse religion.

no my dear.

Thank God for the internet,we can all now read about Islam from our homes.

I am Christian who just got sick and tired of the waves of Islamic violence especially in my country and sought to know what makes these people act the way they do.

You can imagine my horror at reading about the lifestyle of Mohammed their prophet.

There is no limit to the number of wives in a lifetime as long as they come in batches of 4 maximum at a time.

The number of women he can have is however endless.

Allah entitles them to maximum of 4 wives at a time  and an endless supply of women who his right hand posesses,which could be captured Christian girls .The other ill they try to hide is the Islamic concept of temporary (mutah) marriages which is more amongst the Shittes.

A man can have 4 permanent wives and contract temp marriages with women that can last from a one night stands to several years and the temporary women need not live with him,in other words glorified prostitution allowed by Allah.

A man travelling from Mecca to Medina can have several temporary marriages in every town in between the only condition is that he must fulfill his manly duties with her at least once in six months or so

Allah is indeed all knowing ain't he?
