- A female Nigerian doctor has advised men to marry more than one wife
- The doctor said a polygamous marriage would prevent men from cheating on their wives
In Islam, it is acceptable for a man to marry more than one wife as long as he has the means to satisfy them equally and love all of them equally. That’s why polygamous marriages are common amongst Muslims.
A female Nigerian doctor identified as Hauwa Ibrahim who is also a Muslim shared her opinion on polygamous marriages on social media. The doctor believes it is wise for men to marry more than one wife.
Ibrahim also advised men to marry more than one wife not just because Islam accepts it but also to prevent them from being irresponsible husbands.
According to her, marrying more women in the eyes of God is better than chasing young women around and cheating on their spouses.
She said: “Dear men after being a responsible Husband, try marrying a second wife if you have the means, those with two should marry three and those with three should marry four! Thats a great Sunnah and its better than irresponsible act of chasing young girls out there.....”
Hauwa Ibrahim is a doctor at the Federal Medical Center in Ebute Meta area of Lagos state.
