Answer


Marrying more than 4 wives is allowed in islam or it's a sin? Coz Allah allow to take 4 wives at the same time but what about those who marry more than 4 wives at the same time doesn't they are sinful because they're against Allah's command?

الجواب حامداومصليا

Marriage to more than one woman is forbidden in Islam if one fears that he will not be able to maintain justice and eqaulity among his wives. If someone is confident that he will be able to maintain justice and equality between his wives then marriage to more than one wife will be permissible as long as all other conditions for the validity of an Islamic marriage are fulfilled.

Being married to more than 4 wives at the same time is not permissible under any circumstances according to the teachings of Islam.

And Allah knows best.
