  • Title Slide 1 ************************************************************I first came across polygyny when I read this quote from Gustav Le Bon and I was like does this guy even know what he’s talking about --- he’s looking at polygyny like it’s a good thing – I grew up in a society where anyone who married twice was looked down upon (some were even rejected by their families)So I searched and searched and researched … and I reached a conclusion – that which I’ll try to prove through this presentation
  • Slide 2What is polygamy?
  • Slide 3First: What is polygamy Polygamy is further divided into : Polygyny and PolyandryAs is clear through the image, polygyny is : ….
  • Now when we usually speak about Polygyny, we think of Islam – so let’s look at polygyny in Islam************************************************************(after explaining “to deal justly”) I read advice for men on a website “Men, be careful. Marry more than one woman at your expense – remember they love to shop” Imagine he spends 50 KD on one of his wife’s – he’ll have to spend 200 KD in total in one night – poor chap!!!
  • Why does Islam support polygyny? One of the reasons is apparent through this quote
  • ************************************************************Explanation last point) And please don’t say that there are no extra marital affairs – the numbers are shocking. According to infidelityfacts.com, some statistics of those who have been unfaithful are: US – 50%Britain – 48 % Germany / Mexico – 40%France – 38% Spain – 22% Men are the ones protected by monogamy while women continue to be victims of men's desires. (Easy birth control and easy legal abortion has opened the door of illicit sex to woman, and she has been lured into the so-called sexual revolution. But she is still the one who suffers the trauma of abortion and the side effects of the birth control methods.) Polygamy forces men to face up to responsibility and fidelity. It forces them to take responsibility for their polygamous inclinations and protects and provides for women and children.

  • ************************************************************If we compare the current ratio with the one from 10 years ago – we will notice a huge difference (we are talking in 100 millions here)It is not because more men are dying, this is because more women are living – decrease in female infanticide, decrease in death during childbirth, better healthcare, urbanization and many other factors contribute to the increase in female population. Also, please note that women live longer than men – women have stronger immune systems than men. Also, it has been established that more males die before reaching adulthood, many men die through suicide and due to wars as is evident from the next slide
  • And to make matters worse, there are nearly twice as many gays than lesbians.************************************************************Which means that there are more females not involved in relationshipsthan males
  • Celibacy - It may be possible in exceptional cases of one in ten thousand. In the vast majority, the person either gets married or performs illicit sex or indulges in other sexual perversions. Sex hormones are released in the adult body every day.************************************************************Only a minority will practice polygamy in Muslim society. In spite of polygamy being legal in Muslim countries, only 10-15% of Muslims in these countries practice polygamy. Although the majority of men would like to have more than one wife, they cannot afford the expense of maintaining more than one family. Even those who are financially capable of looking after additional families are often reluctant due to the psychological burdens of handling more than one wife.Islam does not promote nor force polygamy, it only allows it as it recognizes the problem instead of ignoring it.Polygamy in Islam is the most practical answer for the welfare of the widows and the orphans. Furthermore, it is the only honorable way for the unmarried women to have families of their own.
