Polygyny, Infidelity, and Multiple Girlfriends: What’s The Difference

Recently, a question was asked about Islam’s acceptance and approval of Polygyny during the interfaith panel’s discussion on wedding. The statement was that “when your holy book tells men to cheat their wives, and you can have up to four women, how you could say you’re moral”. There is a unique difference between unfaithfulness, Polygyny and having multiple girlfriends. The society permits infidelity and multiple lovers, but bans Polygyny. As people didn’t know the difference between these things, today we are here to discuss these issues. The real purpose for Polygyny as given in the Holy Quran is to compensate the larger reduction of men during the war making many widows and orphans. War, illness and prison time have led to a large reduction of men in this time.
