Wife denying the husband the right to take another wife

Q: If wife and husband have argue about marrying more than 1 wife, and the husband says are you going to deny that it is aloud to have more than 1 wife, and the wife says “yes, I deny that”, does the wife fall in kufr by denying this? Also is the marriage contract between the husband and wife annulled? Who’s responsibility is it to get the marriage contract renewed?


A: No. She will not come out of the pale of Islam as she is not approving that her husband take a second wife (she is not denying the law of Shari’ah).

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
