(A friend is writing this for me since my English is weak.)
My husband wants to take a second wife and shows me the following book write-ups day and night from Bukhari and its Tafseer etc, and then goes adamant. Should I submit to him? So many Imams are saying that my husband is right.
[Bukhari Vol 2 Pg 729 Kitab ul Tafseer, chapter 597, Hadith 1641]
“Hazrat Abdullah Ibne Umar was reciting the Quran. When he reached verse 2:223, he asked Naafe if he knew the application of this verse. Then he went on to explain: Your women are your fields, therefore go to your fields as you please. If you wish, go into her …....”
Why does the original Arabic text leave a blank space here?
[Amdatil Qari, Tafseer il Bukhari, explanation of verse 2:223]
Imaam Abu Suleman Jozjani told Muhammad bin Saad: I was in the company of Imaam Maalik. Imaam Maalik was asked, “Can a man do it in the rear with his wives?” Maalik struck his head with his hand and replied, “O Fools! I am coming directly from bath after doing that. Don’t you read in the Quran that your wives are your fields - go into them as you please?”
[Vol 3 Pg 52 Book of Nikah, #34]
The Rasul pboh used to visit all nine of his wives every night. On the other hand, Bukhari repeatedly narrates that the Prophet used to stand at prayers all night, so much so that his feet used to swell.
[Vol 1 Pg 189, Book of Bath #266 -To have sex with many women with only one bath]
The Rasul pboh used to have intercourse with all of his wives in one hour of the day and night without taking a bath and these wives were eleven (not nine).
[Allama Khateeb Baghdadi wrote in his Tareekh]
'Imam' Malik and 'Imam' Shafi'i used to have unnatural sex with their wives quoting, "Your wives are your fields." (Gharaib Fil Tahqiqil Mazahib).
Hazrat Umar said, "O Messenger of Allah! I destroyed myself last night! I turned my ride face down." The Messenger pboh said that it was alright.
