Women who Obstruct their Husbands from taking another Wife
Question:

We request from you an advice to the women who obstruct their husbands from marrying (other women) and they believe that it is a forbidden action?

نرجو نصيحة للنساء اللائي يمنعن أزواجهن من الزواج عليهن ويعتقدن أن ذلك محرم؟

Answer:

Whoever is not pleased with the book of Allaah and the Sunnah of his Messenger is upon misguidance. Allaah, the most High said: "Then in which speech after Allah and His Ayaat will they believe?" (6)(Soorah al-Jaathiyah) and the most high said, "O you who believe! Fear Allaah (by doing all that He has ordered and by abstaining from all that He has forbidden) as He should be feared. [Obey Him, be thankful to Him, and remember Him always], and die not except in a state of Islaam [as Muslims (with complete submission to Allaah)]." (102)(Soorah Aali Imraan), and he said "O you who believe! Enter perfectly in Islaam (by obeying all the rules and regulations of the Islaamic religion)" (208)(Soorah Al-Baqarah). Surrendering and submitting to the book of Allaah and the Sunnah of his Messenger, Allah says "And if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry (other) women of your choice, two or three, or four but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one or (slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice." (3)(Sooratun-Nisaa). The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing upon him) said to Guilaan when he became muslim and had eight wives choose four of them and divorce the rest of them {narrated by Abu Daawood number 2243, Tirmidhee number 1130, Ibn Maajah number 1951 and other then them}.

من لم يقتنع بكتاب الله وسنة رسوله فهو على غير هدى، قال تعالى: ﴿فَبِأَيِّ حَدِيثٍ بَعْدَ اللهِ وَآيَاتِهِ يُؤْمِنُونَ﴾; [الجاثية:6].. وقال تعالى: ﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ وَلا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنْتُمْ مُسْلِمُونَ﴾; [آل عمران:102]. وقال: ﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا ادْخُلُوا فِي السِّلْمِ كَافَّةً﴾; [البقرة:208] استسلام وانقياد لكتاب الله وسنة رسوله، يقول الله تقدس اسمه: ﴿وَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ أَلَّا تُقْسِطُوا فِي الْيَتَامَى فَانكِحُوا مَا طَابَ لَكُمْ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ مَثْنَى وَثُلاثَ وَرُبَاعَ فَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ أَلَّا تَعْدِلُوا فَوَاحِدَةً أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَلَّا تَعُولُوا﴾; [النساء:3]، وقال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم لغيلان حين أسلم وعنده ثماني نسوة: اختر منهن أربعًا، وطلق ما زاد على ذلك(2). */حاشية/ـــــــــــــــــــــ (1) الجواب النافع على أسئلة أهل الضالع (أسئلة موجهة من الشباب السلفيين بمنطقة الشعيب بمحافظة الضالع)، بتاريخ: ليلة السبت 12 ذي القعدة 1422ه.. دماج - دار الحديث.
