LAHORE: A judicial magistrate in Cantonment Courts has sentenced a man to three-month jail and imposed a fine of Rs5,000 on him for contracting second marriage without mandatory permission of first wife.

Rabia Younas filed a complaint through a counsel pleading that her husband Shoaib Zahid contracted second marriage without obtaining her consent required under section 6 of Muslim Family Law Ordinance 1961. The counsel asked the court to punish the man under the law for committing a crime. He also produced witnesses and documentary evidence to prove the offence of the respondent.

The magistrate, Kashif Abbas, observed that verbal and documentary evidence presented by the complainant established the offence the respondent committed. Therefore, the magistrate handed down three-month imprisonment to the respondent and Rs5,000 fine.

I read something that there is room for the Islamic government to restrict the public from halal actions/activities. Not sure if this applies here.

Wouldn't this be different to a fatwa saying polygamy is impermissible, when there is a way to do it without breaking the law in a non muslim country (by not registering the marriage, just like they overlook mistresses, fornication and adultery.)?

In the men-dominated society men could marry with unlimited number of women prior to advent of prophet :saws: but this new religion for Arab society restricted the number of wives upto 4.

Polygamy isn't encouraged in Islam though but the bottomline is that law of a Muslim country is violating the shariah.

I didn't read that above thread mentioned by bro abu muhammad.
Yes there are scholars who discourage it. But we should know that Islam itself doesn't discourage it. Otherwise Sahaba R.A would never have gotten themselves involved in something discouraged (makrooh).

Marrying more than one woman is strictly subject to 'equal treatment' or else there is warning of being raised as half paralysed on the judgement day and warning of punishment is never understood as 'encouragement'.

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said: “A man who has two wives and he does not deal justly with them will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment with half his body paralysed.” (Sunan Tirmidhi, no. 1141)

The hadith warns about punishment upon unjust behaviour not upon getting married.

Mistreating orphans is a heinous sin. Does it mean it isn't encouraged to take orphans?

Unjust treatment of kids is a sin, does that mean we should have only one kid to avoid that possibility?..

Did I say that marriage with more than one woman isn't permitted....?

Question is whether or not Islam encourages it...

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

What about marrying ONE woman?

Is that subject to any kind of treatment?

Or does Islam allow you to treat your ONE wife any which way you like?

Do you know of any warnings of punishment when it comes to mistreating your ONE wife? Please quote from quran and hadith.

Are warnings of mistreating ONE wife discouragement of marrying ONE wife?

Please answer the questions one by one without skipping any.

Q: Do you think that Islam encourages polygamy..?

I'm sorry, but you are very idiotic sometimes. You seem to be very deficient in common sense and intelligence. I'm going to respond to you just once and then I'm done with you.

You don't think that is encouragement to marry multiple women? The only discouragement to marry multiple women in that ayat is if you cannot treat them equally. Otherwise that ayat encourages us to marry multiple women.

You have been deluded by the kuffar and western society. You are a self hating muslim. You want Islam to be something that is acceptable to the kuffar and the West. You are ashamed of your Deen.
