The translation is wrong . It says marry the nisa off, e.g the weak. In every case it does not say that women cannot have several husbands . Peace
Because I do not speak Arabic I would have no clue about the translation. I do however, see that this verse leads more to believe that one can marry more than one.
Do you speak Arabic? If not, how do you come to the conclusion this verse is translated wrong?
If you do, then how is this mistranslated for all this time in all the translations.
I am just saying there is another point of view to be thought about. Maybe the prophet had no sexual relations with all these women after his first wife. Maybe he just supported them and took care for them. There is room for thought. Because that is what Allah does anyway is leave it to us to think about the many different situations. He gives us the stories of the prophets and the past as examples to think about. However, we know the truth in our subconscious. I believe the Arabic speaking world knows this. I really do.
You have no problem if this is the case because your husband has chosen a sexual life with you. If he changed his mind he would have to give up sex with you both to be fair as he could possibly be.
Yes, I am convinced the Quran does allow more than one wife. But, I believe that Allah is fair to us. That is one of our trials and tests to see the fairness and equality of Allah. That would be what he would be closely watching in a man and a women if they are in this situation. I mean anyone could pretend they were not having sex yet they might be. But, Allah knows!
And anyone could ripe the heart of a women or women apart without even a bit of feeling. Allah Knows.
Men cannot have it all as they so think they can. It is one wife with sex or many without sex. Simple and plain.
Allah is fair!
That is my take. To each our own.
