Marry second time
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask
for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever
He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that
there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that
Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: do he
have a right to marry another in this condition?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah
Nisaa verse 3:
3 If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans
marry women of your choice two or three or four; but if ye
fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them) then only one
or (a captive) that your right hands possess.
That will be more suitable to prevent you from doing injustice.
If the married person is absolutely confident that he will
be able to do justice amongst this two wives (if he were to chose to marry
you), there is absolutely no harm in his exercising his right to choose to
marry more than once.
Your Question: does
he have a right to ask permission from his wife frist?
There is absolutely nothing in Shariah Law which demands
or requires a believer who wishes to exercise his right to marry for a second
(or 3rd, or 4th) time that he must ask, tell, or take
permission from his first (or prior) wives.
If he wishes to inform them before his marriage, it is his choice; and
if he wishes to inform them about his decision after his marriage, it is his
choice entirely. There is absolutely no
obligation upon the husband to take the permission of his first wife before the
But when taking on the second wife, it is an absolutely
requirement in Shariah that the woman he is about to marry knows that her
husband is already married.
Beloved Sister in Islam, under absolutely no circumstances
should you, who wishes to marry a man who has a prior wife, ever ask or demand
or even imply that the person should divorce his first wife….for that then
would not be piety and righteousness in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.598 Narrated by Abu Huraira
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "No woman
should ask for the divorce of her sister (Muslim) so as to take her place, but
she should marry the man (without compelling him to divorce his other wife),
for she will have nothing but what Allah has written for her."
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to
Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only
Source of Strength.
Your brother and
well wisher in Islam,
