Feroze Khan, a leading actor, model, and video jockey in Pakistani showbiz, lately suggested that one should marry more than once.
Khan and his sister Humaima Malik recently appeared in the game show Time out with Ahsan Khan and talked about some interesting things. However, one thing in particular that caught out undivided attention was Khan’s stance on polygamy.
When the host Ahsan Khan asked if he tied the knot too soon and at a very young age, the Khuda Aur Mohabbat actor denied it and responded, “No, I should have got married sooner”. In addition to this, he said that marriage is a learning process, therefore people should marry more than once, following in the footsteps of our Holy Prophet (PBUH).
We witness so many men taking advantage of the Islamic marital jurisprudence which allows them to have up to four wives. Islam surely allows Muslim men to marry multiple women- up to four at any stage of his life. Let’s not question the teachings and values of Islam. Nonetheless, the institution of polygamy is always misinterpreted, misapprehended, and misused.
Sure, Islam does allow four marriages BUT only under certain conditions. One of these conditions includes being just and equal among all wives. But marrying more than once just because it is “a wonderful learning process” is not a good enough reason.
The reasons for which the Prophets had multiple wives were different. It was not only for carnal reasons but instead for religious and political reasons. There are already so many cases of men conducting second marriages without the consent of the first wife. Khan’s statement only comes off as problematic.
