The Muslim man is entitled to marry up to a maximum of four wives but subject to certain conditions.
Islam limited the number of wives for a Muslim man to have at one time to four. Before Islam, there were some men with 6,7,8 or rarely 10 and even 15 wives. Muslims are allowe…d to up to four wives on at one time on condition to treat them and deal with them equally and fairly. Due to the difficulty to meet this condition, Muslims are encouraged to have only one wife. By the way, no holy books in any religion limited the number of wives one can have. Limiting them to one in some religions is imposed only by religious leaders.

4 wives is aloud but not commanded
Answer: Throughout the history of the world, women have out-numbered men. Why? Who knows all the reasons. Anyway, men marrying more than one woman has been a part of the reli…gious traditions of all Abrahamic people. In Islam, a man is allowed to marry up to four - under certain conditions. 1) He must be able to support them financially as it is a requirement on the man to pay for his wife and children's needs. 2) He must give each of them equal ammounts of material posessions as well as an equal ammont of his time. That means that if he buys a single family house for one, he must buy an equally good single family house for each. If he spends Monday night with one, then Tuesday is for the next, etc. 3) He must be kind and fair to each. When women are left without husbands they must fend for themselves. Oh, I know, in a modern society there are plenty of ways a woman may support herself. But not for most of history, nor in many parts of the world today. Then there is companionship. If a woman wants a man in her life, and all the good men are 'taken' then she may resort to having an affair with a married man. If it is a secret affair, and the wife finds out, it often results in divorce and heartache. Men, also, have always had desire for more than one woman. Let's be honest - many many men have strong desires for more than one. So instead of it being hidden and shameful, it is above - board and legal. Then, if the "other woman" becomes pregnant, the man is obligated to take care of her. He can't just dump her like an inconvenient thing. Finally, in Islam, men and women look upon marriage in a different way than in the West. Marriage is not because you have 'found your perfect match'. Nor is it for sex. Marriage is the way you make God pleased with you - the way you remain holding on to purity and chastity - the way you raise children and take care of another human being - the way you establish family ties to others, etc. Answer: first of all let me i say i have little knowldge about Islam.if western people can sleep with more than one woman,why Muslim cant marry more one laddy & give her basic right.also prophet is married more than one time who is example for Muslims.if prophet did that there will be alogical reason for that. also Islam force marry more than one> it just restricted to marry 4,in which during people marry many of them. Islam allows to marry more than if his sure he can show justice to all of them equally.

Muslims are allowed to marry up to 4 wives. however, this is not a rule and this allowance is subject to certain conditions.

Islam religion is the first God religion to limit the number to four and with conditions.Refer to question below.
Sharia Law allows them to.
The religion itself says nothing about how many wives you may have. it depends on the laws of the country.
Sure. A Muslim has to follow the Islamic teachings in all aspects of life including marriage.
Islam itself is more of a way of life than it is as a religion. It has step-by-step guides and rules throughout every aspect of a Muslim's daily life.

they can only have one. it was in the very old times that some Muslim man had more than one wife and that was because all the man were gone to war and th ewomen were left alon…e and poor since they couldn't work. the only reason to why some men had more than one wife was so that they could take care of them..otherwise the women and children would starve without a husband to work. Islam gives a man permission to marry two, three or four women, only on the condition that he deals justly with them. In the chapter Surah Nisa verse 129 says: "Ye are never able to be fair and just as between women...." [Al-Qur'an 4:129] Many people are under the misconception that it is compulsory for a Muslim man to have more than one wife Before the Qur'an was revealed, there was no upper limit for Polygamy and many men had scores of wives, some even hundreds. Qur'an is the only religious book on the face of the earth that says 'marry only one'. The context of this phrase is the following verse from Surah Nisa of the Glorious Qur'an: "Marry women of your choice, two, or three, or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one." [Al-Qur'an 4:3]
according to Islam disobeying God is sin and God will is described in Quran and are called Islamic laws. and according to Islam disobeying laws of Islam may lead entering Hell…. God created this world, the Sun, Moon, Stars the Galaxy and other Planets, Humans, Plants and all Living creatures. Our stay in this world is for a short period as we will be called back after death to live again. Every thing belongs to the Almighty God and as such we have to follow His rules, regulations and laws. To guide the people on this Earth God sent numerous Prophets, and reveled many Scriptures like the Torah, Bible, Psalms, Gospel, but it was ignored and lost and corrupted. The Final book was revealed to the last Prophet, Prophet Mohammad and this was The Holy Quran outlining the laws, rules and regulations, code and ethics and the way of life. Each soul will be judged on the day of Judgement, and if we have disobeyed Him or committed sins we will be punished. The Righteous will be rewarded a place in Heaven, and the sinners will face the Hell fire. This is the reason that in Islam, Islamic Laws (Gods Laws) are important to Muslims as we are preparing not for the comforts and luxuries of the life in this world but the rewards in the hereafter.
