Second, 3rd 4rth Marriage – (Hanbali Fiqh)

Ruling on Second (3rd,4th) marriage? (mustahab or other)

Answered by Imam Zahed Fettah

The recommended thing to do is to keep one wife, because that is safer for a person in preserving their religion and being fair. It also reduces the likelihood of dispute and family breakdowns. This is the position of the madhhab.

Marrying more than one wife is permissible however for the one who is confident that he is able to do it justice.
