||Every-time the topic of polygamy countered, the first thing this men will say is that, it is God has given them the green light to marry up to 4 wives and there are exercising their religious duty.
1. They ignore all other sunnah's and even talk down on them, e.g marrying a wife older than you, they never do this, as if its not sunnah. they will only pick a sunnah that favors them and use it as a reason to justify their actions not even for the sake of practicing the sunnah itself.
2. why will you add another wife when your current standard of living is not that good and you can use that money to improve your life instead of adding more pressure to your self
3. it is not a religious duty to marry 4 wives, its an optional sunnah if you wish to, that doesn't put any obligation on you.
Gaskiya this mentality has to change, you rarely find OTHER Muslims other doing this so rampant, unlike Hausa men, all they know is to keep marrying until they reach their limit. I know someone with salary of less than 50k and has 2 wives. if you talk he will start talking of sunnah, their standard of living is low and they can't even meet basic life necessities.
