Abstract

This article aims at dealing with the misconceptions regarding the polygamy of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Many non-Muslim scholars like William Muir and Henry Lehmenn have badly criticized the marriages of Holy Prophet (PBUH). However, the marriages of Muhammad (PBUH) were meant to preach Islam in its true letter and spirit as the wives of Holy Prophet (PBUH) belonged to different tribes of Arabs. Thus, various Arab tribes were attracted towards Allah’s messenger and Islam because of these marriages.. Apart from this, a woman could better explain the Islamic teachings relating to women than a man could do. The wives of Holy prophet observed the private life of the Prophet and shared their observation with other Muslims. In a nutshell, these marriages were not meant for fulfilling human desires but for promotion of Islam. Similarly, polygamy finds a positive place in other religions of the world, like Hinduism and Judaism too. This article has elaborated these issues pertaining to the concept of polygamy in Islam.
