Nuray, if you say that Allah permits polygamy, then provide the sources to back up what you have posted. Also remember that just because what has its beginings in the Middle East does not mean it can be applied elsewhere. The United States comes to mind. When the state of Utah wanted to become a state, the majority of people who live there, Mormons, had to give up the practice of polygamy in order to become a state because it is not permited in the USA. While there are a few radical Mormon churches in Utah who still practice it, such as one who the leader is on the FBI's most wanted list, it is regarded as a strange practice in the eyes of most westerners.
