In Response To: 70% Malaysian women are okay with polygamy (Dr. Zia Shah, NY)

AL-QUR'AN
4:3 If you fear that you (the society) will not be able to do justice with the orphans, (as may happen in times of war and political turbulence, the government shall announce a state of Emergency), then, in order to accommodate widows and orphans, men of sound finances and character shall be encouraged to marry among these widows with mutual choice; two, three, and four. But, if you fear that you will not be able to deal justly, then, you must not take additional wives and may continue with what you already have. This will be more suitable to prevent you from doing injustice and face financial hardship. [Second marriage during peacetime is a frank violation of the Qur’an – note ‘If you fear’ in the beginning. 4:127-129]
