 BismEm


"And if you fear that you will not deal fairly by the orphans, marry of the women, who seem good to you, two or three or four; and if you fear that you cannot do justice (to so many) then one (only) or that your right hands possess. Thus it is more likely that you will not do injustice."    4:3 [An-Nissa].

 
Trouble-makers with little power of understanding who haven't followed this Verse, have misinterpreted it claiming that for "fair treatment Muslims are allowed to marry up to four orphans which would make fair treatment more difficult."   Well, that's exactly what the Noble Quran is stating that if you cannot treat more than one wife fairly, then you must have only one wife.  Before that, in the same Verse, The Almighty says that if someone is inclined to unjust treatment towards orphans (taking advantage of their helpless situation), then such men must not marry orphans at all.  Instead they should marry free believing women who seem suitable to them and who aren't orphans, up to a maximum of four.  But again, if they feel they will not be able to handle it right by providing fair treatment to all four wives, then they should have only one wife. 

This Verse refers to a practice prevalent in the days of Ignorance.  The male guardians of  orphan girls would often marry them for their beauty or wealth with the intention of controlling their lives as orphans had no one to defend their cause and thus this practice often resulted in mistreatment of female orphans. 

Secondly, in pre-Islamic days men could marry unlimited number of women, as many as they wished and regardless of their financial status.  Verse 4:3 also limits the maximum number of wives to four, only IF the husband can deal fairly with four.  This includes not only personal feelings but also equitable dealing concerning finances.

Thank you Sis.   

Who's spreading the misinterpretation .... the  answering-Islam guys or someone else?

Welcomed Sis.   Though answering-Islam is very capable of such misinterpretations, I came across some Islamophobes saying this in a Hadithist group at Facebook.

No they didn't say a word nor did I expect them to.  They are seldom interested in correcting misinformation.   So I posted the rejoinder here and put up its link there.  No one responded to it.

You did the right thing Sis.  No one responded because they had nothing to say.  The Islamophobes were busted, and the hadithsers couldn't refute either.
