Polygamy in Morocco

Morroco had 841 polygamous marriages in 2005. This was a modest drop from a previous year due to a law requiring a first spouse to consent to new marriages of the husband.

I am totally amazed that the law makers in so many countries are making amendments to Ayats in the Quran.

Who is man to limit the number of wives a man can have when Allah says he could have four under certain conditions and circumstance? I won't debate what those conditions and circumstances are. There's nothing to debate when Allah tells us what those conditions and circumstances are and He didn't make it that difficult to understand.

How can man make unlawful for Allah has made lawful? The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) didn't ask his wives permission for him to take another.

It's a very sad state of affairs that we live in. Yes. I agree polygamy is not easy for a woman. I know that, as I live polygamy in American. I am an American female Muslim who lives polygamy against the "laws" in the country that I live.

The Quran is my Constitution. I try to fear Allah, not man. I try to obey Allah. He knows best, not man. If a man practices polygamy incorrectly, he must account to Allah for it.

I formed a support group to help women accept polygamy, if Allah has decided polygamy for them, regardless of how difficult and painful it might be. Allah created man to experience toil and struggle. But after hardhship comes ease, if we truly Believe.

This is part of the coming into line with UN Resolutions on "WOMENS RIGHTS" but what this is; is nothing more than a clandestine way of forcing all NATIONS whether Islamic or not to adhere to CATHOLIC CANON LAW.

They forced this on early Christianity centuries ago then they forced it on the Jews of Europe and now that are forcing it on the rest of the world.

I am an ex-catholic (Italian Father).

FWIW, Catholic Canon law most definitely does not permit polygamous marriage (although Martin Luther, who began the Reformation, took the position that polygamy was not forbidden by church law).
