Submitted by Anne-Marie Delcambre (Malta), Jun 24, 2010 at 11:19

The Qur'an says : you will never be able to do perfect justice between wives even it is your ardent desire, so do no incline too much to one of them - BY GIVING HER MORE OF YOUR TIME AND PROVISION
i.e neither divorced nor married - Surah 4 : 129

The Prophet said : The man who had two wives and was inclined towards one of them will come on the Day of Judgememt bent to one side - Transmitted by Abu Dawud, Al-Tirmidhi, an-NISA'I, Ibn Majah

Anne-Marie Delcambre, French Orientalist
