Can a man treat his wives fairly? Quran (4:3) or Quran (4:129)

Mohamad Mostafa Nassar


Yes, it is possible.

Qur’an 4:3

Marry of the women, who seem good to you, two or three or four; and if ye fear that ye cannot do justice (to so many) then one (only) or (the captives) that your right hands possess.

No, you will not be able to do so.

Qur’an 4:129

Ye will not be able to deal equally between (your) wives, however much ye wish (to do so).

If you are afraid, you will not do them justice then marry only one wife, however you will not be able to achieve equilibrium no matter how much you try.


That is what it is saying, they only complement each other. Instead of contradicting. (Bow of hak)

Almighty Allah is the highest and most knowledgeable, and the attribution of knowledge to him is the safest.

Right from Almighty Allah and wrong from me and Satan

Arrogance is not only a sign of insecurity, but also a sign of immaturity. Mature and fully realised persons can get their points across, even emphatically without demeaning or intimidating others.
