Reader comment on item: Westerners Welcome Harems
in response to reader comment: Polygamy

Read Rebecca Mould's comments: Trouble and Strife.

Firstly, I agree with her, that women can't handle more than one husband- its too much headache.

Secondly, it will be impossible to tell which child belongs to which husband. There'll be a great Fitnah (mischief) on the land.

Better stick with what our Creator Allah has ordained and prescribed.

On the other hand I am sure you are NOT wanting to have illicite sex with multiple men as you seem to suggest. That will be another Fitnah of Zinah ! (adultery)
