A. Dear Client,

This legislation in India acknowledges polygamy for Muslim men. According to this law, a Muslim man is legally allowed to have up to four wives simultaneously, following the principles outlined in the Quran. However, it is a requirement that he possesses the ability to treat all his wives with fairness and justice. In cases where this equality is not maintained, an aggrieved wife has the option to seek divorce under the Dissolution of Muslim Marriages Act, 1939.
