"We don’t see any such instructions to any of the Prophets who engaged in polygamy among the descendants of Abraham. There is also no clear cut instruction in the Qur’an to this effect. Therefore, in the context of the overall argument of the Deen, “two, three, four” in 4:3 should mean as many as you like."

Where does Quran say previous Messengers had multiple wives?

Bible says Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines! Why?
Do you accept this about a man who was a Messenger of Allah just because the Quran does not specifically mention him by name and reject what is attributed to him?
If we use Quran, as the polygamy in islam post has done, then we can reject any and every falsehood.
If we accept Bible as word of God, then we have to accept every falsehood!

2,3,4 if this means as many as you like then this can only apply to helping orphans get married when they are without parents who would do this job, not to marrying as many women as you like!
