How many wives can a Muslim have under Islamic law?
The religion itself says nothing about how many wives you may have. it depends on the laws of the country.
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]
They can have as many as they want
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.
A Muslim man living in any part of the world can have Four wives at a time according to Islam if he can do justice to each one of them.
The Islamic law code is the Qoran. It teaches and guides you to Worship God and to follow the Teachings of the Prophet, to be a good human being, follow the righteous path so …as to achieve the ultimate goal and reward which is a place in Heaven in the hereafter. This is the reason why it influences Muslim life,
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.

Answer 1 there are near 2 Billion Muslim in world. but many Muslims hide their religions for fear of violence against them. Answer 2 The statistics state that there are… 1.66 billion (plus or minus 100 million) Muslims. The vast majority of Muslims are moderately religious individuals and as of 2012 there is no large community of Reform Islam or Liberal Islam. There are certainly a small minority of Muslim-born individuals who are actually Atheists or Agnostics, but these individuals make up less than 0.1% of the overall Muslim population. There is also minimal statistical evidence that the majority of Muslims are afraid to practice their religion. In Western countries as well as Eastern countries, Muslims have erected numerous mosques and pray communally without any serious hindrance.

Islam preaches equality of all human beings. It unites human beings in one universal brotherhood. All the Muslims have been declared BROTHERS by Allah Almighty and the Prophet… (SAW). The teachings and laws of Islam necessarily unify the Muslim society. Many sayings of the holy Prophet (SAW) make it obligatory on each Muslim to be kind, considerate, helpful, and well wisher of other Muslim broths.
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.
Maximum Four wives at a time is allowed. A man is allowed to marry more then one if he can do act justly towards wives: Where one wife do not get preferantial treatment in all… other aspect except feelings. The husband is allowed have stronger feeling for one wife more then the other but he can't buy gift for one wife and not buy for the other wife. It is not permissible for man to marry more than one if he can not act justly towards his wives as explained earlier.
Slavery was common when Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) started preaching Islam. As Islam teaches equality of all human beings, the early converters to Islam were mostly the slaves …and the poor. Islam does not like slavery. But it was not possible in that society to announce it Haram. However, the Holy Prophet (SAW) commanded the Muslims to treat the slaves kindly, give them the same food which the master eats, don't be cruel to them, preferably set them free. Hazrat Zaid (rau) was a slave set free by Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). Hazrat Bilal (RAU) was also a slave bought and set free by Hazrat Abu Bakr (RAU). Both of them enjoyed more respect than many of the other Companions (RAU).
