is polygymy justifiable for US?

Justifiably "morally" or "legally?" The Qur'aan defines it in very LIMITED terms as "legal" or "halaal," however the lack of hurmah does not imply morality of an act.

Salaam, Shalom, Shanti, Peace.

"You are never able to be fair and just as between women; even if it is your ardent desire," (al-Qu'ran/4:129).

Prophet Muhammad's(pbuh) married life...

up to age 25, ceibate

25-54, married to one woman, who died when he was 50

54-60, multiple wives - after 60, no new wives

note: he only married women, besides his first wife, for one of two reasons...

1) he married widows of slain warriors. (he once married 3 opposition widows)

2) to make alliances w/opposing tribes

from the Qu'ran, translated by

Maulana Muhammad Ali

info from footnotes
