Polygamy – more than one wife - The Misconceptions about Islam

Any medical doctor will tell you that medically the female sex is the stronger sex, the female child has more immunity and fights diseases better than the male child. There are more deaths among the male children. In all wars there are more men being killed compared to women. The average life span of a women is longer than a man. Today in the world there are more females in the world compared to males. The majority of births are females.
It is a better for a women to be married to a man than to become a mistress, fall into lesbianism or prostitution (for income). If a women was allowed to have more than one husband then this will increase the scarcity of men to women. If a women has more than one husband, it is difficult to identify who the father is. But if a man has more than one wife you can identify who the husband is. 417

10680859_xxl_resize.jpgIslam encourages adoption of orphans in various verses of the Quran and Hadiths. The Quran also tells you to marry more than one wife if you need help with the orphans.

"I and the person who looks after an orphan and provides for him, will be in Paradise like this," putting his index and middle fingers together.” Sahih Al-Bukhari, Book 78, Hadith No. 36

“One who looks after the orphan whether he is his relative or not, I and he would be together in Paradise like this, and Malik (explained it) with the gesture by drawing his index finger and middle finger close together.” Sahih Muslim, Book 55, Hadith No. 52
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 (the captives and the slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing“ Quran 4:2
