Taking a second wife without any need

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Can a Muslim take a second wife without any reason. I mean, if he is happy with his wife and children, does he need a reason to take a second wife or he can just take a second wife without any valid reason. Someone said that you need a reason to take a second wife.

Bismillaah

A: If there is no genuine need then why think about the second marriage.

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