Respected brother Arif,
2:173 He has forbidden you: dead meat (carrion), blood, swine-flesh, and anything (not just meat) that has been dedicated to other than God (be it a person, an idol or a tomb 5:3). But if one is forced by necessity, neither intending disobedience, nor exceeding, it will not be a violation that hurts his own ‘self’. Indeed, God is Forgiving, Merciful.
My question is are the two situations parallel? Ayat 2:173 is clearly declaring certain types of foods as unlawful; there is no such Ayat in the Quran that declares taking multiple wives Haram. The exception given in the same verse is temporary in order to save human life that is sacred. As soon as one is able to find lawful food, the exemption is lifted and one cannot further consume the food that has always been Haram. Can we say the same for the additional wives taken during post-war exigencies? Can we say the the wives remain Haram throughout the life? Can we say once the post-war exigencies are lifted by a proper Quran-based government that declared the exigencies in the first place, those who took the additional wives must divorce them?
How can we declare Haraam that has not been declared so by Allah (SWT) Isn't the following verse enought to keep us very cautious in giving our judgements hastily?
Do not keep uttering in falsehood, “This is lawful and this is unlawful”, thus inventing lies against God. Those who fabricate lies against God, fail to prosper in their ’selves’.
