One more thing about polygamy

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: About polygamy, temporary marriages and divorce according to Sharia Law (non Muslim women dating Muslim men should read it)

Submitted by A very concerned reader, Feb 2, 2021 at 01:56

I just wanted to clarify that whenever a Muslim justifies polygamy claiming that it's just practiced in extreme situations when the women can't find a spouse, are older, widows, divorcees, etc. under the pretext to help her, he is just lying. Also, they can say that nowadays is obsolete. These 2 lines are flat lies commonly used by Muslim men to calm down their girlfriends about this famous topic. They also say that they're not strict in the practice of their religion. It's NOT true. If he prays, even not very often, becomes more religious in Ramadan and doesn't eat pork products, rest assure he is Muslim, always will be and the older he gets, the stricter he'll become.

Remember what I said in my previous post: they're entitled by their Allah to marry up to 4 women and have temporary marriages. They don't need to justify it nor need the permission of the first wife. There's no conditions under what a man can get more wives. Its only stated in the Qur'an that he has to be fair with all of them. Since it's the man by himself the one who will judge if he's fair or not, nothing can stop him. Please don't fall for these lies.

Also, don't believe them if they say they would never do it and that they're against. My ex told me all these lies to reveal his true intentions much later on. Polygamy was always in his mind.

Remember: they can lie if it's to convince a kafir to become Muslim. They will lie about their whole holy book. Having the knowledge it's the only way to not fall for the lies.
