Reviews

“Polygamy is the Muslim practice most frequently and severely maligned by Westerners and modernist Muslims. This book can be read with profit by all unprejudiced readers who wish to know its justification and rationale.

One of the greatest contrasts between Islam and the West is their conflicting concepts of relations between the sexes. Indeed, the very first question a Muslim convert is confronted with by an American or European is ‘Why does Islam allow four wives?’ This book...replies straightforwardly to that question and much more.

The authors describe all the most important characteristics of marriage in Islam, pointing out that the Western notions of sex equality and romantic premarital ‘love’ are not necessary in Islamic marriage based on piety and the commitment on the part of both parents to win the pleasure of Almighty Allah.”

Publisher: International Islamic Publishing House IIPH (2005)
Pages: 107 Binding: Paperback

Description from the publisher:

Polygamy in Islam is a favourite topic for the critics of Islam and its message. The dominant, Eurocentric global order that calls itself ‘secular’ has maligned the concept of plural marriage to the extent that its impact is felt worldwide. Some contemporary Muslim scholars have been influenced by the negative propaganda so that they felt compelled to ‘reinterpret’ the Qur’an to ‘prove’ that the Qur’an supports the European-generated concept of monogamy as the only acceptable framework for marriage. Polygamy in Islam is the outcome of thorough study by Jameelah Jones and Bilal Philips, both reverts to Islam. Their western background has facilitated a more comprehensive understanding of the topic from both the Islamic and the Euro-centered points of view. First published in the 1980s, the many subsequent editions of this book testify to its continued significance in the twenty-first century.
