My name is Joseph, I have two questions to ask why all the Muslims, men are allowed to marry for for human? And the second one is, how can you prove that Jesus was not crucified? The reverse to question whether you're a Christian?
Are the two questions that Why does Islam permit a man to have up to four wise, whereas some permit Amanda more than one wife? And second question is, how can you prove that Jesus Christ be upon him was not crucified? that Quran is the only religious book on the face of the earth, which says Mary only one. You read the Bible, you read the Rama and you read the marble read the Veda. No religious book on the face of the earth says manual even besides the Quran, if you read the Mayan, then the Scriptures, the father of Shri Ram, he had more than one wife. If you read Mahabharat she Christian, how many wives yet for 10,000 10,000, yet 16,108 vials. So if she kishin can have 16,001 and eight
vials, so why can Muslim that maximum up to four.
If you read the Old Testament, it failed that Solomon, peace be upon him at 700 wife, Abraham peace be upon him at three ways. So Old Testament tells you can marry as many as you want. Same as the New Testament say that you should follow Old Testament. So in Hinduism, in Christianity, in Judaism, you can marry as many as you want. It is later on that the church would restriction that a Christian should marry only one. It is later on Rabbi Bensimon Yoda, Pastor sign out and say that you should marry only one otherwise, previously, they used to marry as many as they wished. It is the Indian Penal Code in India in 1954, that put a restriction and said under the Hindu special Marriage Act,
the Hindus should marry only one but the scriptures put no restrictions. Let's analyze what does the Quran say? Quran says in Surah Nisa, chapter four verse number three Mary woman have a choice in twos, threes, or fours. But if you can't do justice marry only one. This statement, if you can't do justice marry only one is only given in the Quran and no other religious scriptures. Let us analyze why does Quran give permission for the Muslim men to marry more than one woman maximum form? The reason is that by nature, male and female are born in equal proportion. But if you ask any pediatrician, he will tell you, the doctor of the children that the female child is stronger than
the male child in fighting germs and diseases. So you have more deaths among the male children as compared to female children. So in pediatric age itself, the females are more than the males. As life goes on, there is that due to was due to alcoholism, drug addiction due to accident. In all these cases, more men are dying as compared to females. So today in the world, there are more females as compared to males. In few countries like India and China, the female population is less than the male population because of female feticide and female infanticide.
In India, according to a BBC report, every day more than 1000 features are being aborted after the identified as females. If you multiply this figure by 365, you get a total of more than a million fetuses are being aborted every year in India, after the fact that the females according to the Tamil Nadu government hospital report, out of 10 females born alive four are put to death, if you stop this evil practice of female feticide and female infant that India, even in India, the female population become more than the male population. Even in China. If you stop this evil practice, the female population become more than the male population. Today, if you analyze. In USA alone, there
are 4.7 million females more than males. In UK alone, there are 1.2 million females more than males. In Germany alone, there are 1.6 million females more than males. In Russia alone, there are 10 point 6 million females more than males. And God alone knows that how many females are more than males throughout the world.
If I agree with you, that one man should only marry one woman. And suppose your sister happens live in America was about my sister happens to live in USA, and the market is saturated. Every man has found a wife for himself. Yet there will be 4.7 million females who will NOT find life partner. And if your sister happens to be one of them, my sister happens to be one of the 4.7 million females who have not found a life partner for themselves. The only option for them is that she either marries a man who already has a wife
becomes public property,
public property, such a harsh word.
It is the most sophisticated hold, I can use.
I cannot use a better word in America. Today the statistics tell us on average, a man has eight different sexual partners before it settles down with one. Having mistresses in USA is very common. 510 2030 no problem having more than one legal wife, it doesn't go down their throat. When a woman is a mistress, she doesn't get her rights. She's dishonored. She's not treated well, in Islam. When a woman becomes the second wife, she gets the honor, she gets a right she's treated well.
Any modest woman if you ask her?
That would you prefer being
a second wife of a man who's already married or become public property, they will offer the first. So Islam I've given permission for some men to have more than one wife to protect the modesty of the woman.
Coming to your second question isn't allowed for ladies to marry for men? Brother, you're asking counter question the time is limited. You asked two questions by asking a third question. I can give you the first answer. I'm convinced with the first one. Mashallah. Okay. The brother has that is a woman allowed to have more than one as well. If you do that, this problem will be exaggerated more. I mean, Muslims in Muslims as a woman are more than men. If women marry more than one husband, the problem will be exaggerated. Why? Number one, point number two, if a man and more than one wife and if the child is born, you can easily identify who is the father, who's the mother, if a woman has
more than one husband and the child is born?
And DNase still, Mother, let me finish the answer. Now.
You ask the question, why the interfering?
Or the interrupting?
no, no. So why are you interrupting? After I finish, you can ask them. I'm a medical doctor, your medical doctor. Now. I'm a medical doctor no for DNA testing. I come to it.
Once if a woman has more than one has been to husband and if a child is born, and if he goes to admit in the school, and if the question with your father is Sheila to give two names.
You're talking about DNA testing. I know about it. DNA testing. Everything was DNA testing the 50s back was it they know it's a new recent discovery yet it's not 100% Even if I agree 100%. It is now it wasn't there before. Islam is there since time immemorial. And this is not the only reason. Even if I agree tomorrow, it becomes 100% Perfect. This is not the only reason. Today science tells us that man is more polygamous in nature as compared to the female. Today, science tells us that during menstrual cycle, the female undergoes certain psychological changes. It's not possible for her to do the role of multiple wives. But a man doesn't undergo these changes, it's possible for him to do a
role of multiple husbands. Today science tells us that if a man
has multiple sexual partners, and all are faithful, there is no problem. But if a female has multiple sexual partners, and all are faithful, there are chances or sexually transmitted diseases to emerge, and that disease will go back to the male partner. So medically, it is not acceptable that a female has multiple partners, but medically and scientifically it's acceptable that a milk and multiple partners
