Only under extreme and rare circumstances:
Only very few understand that polygamy in Islam originated to ensure widowed women & their kids are takn care of. Ignorance isn't bliss.

This hashtag opened a discussion about the marriages going on in the Arab world as Islam has only allowed polygamy under situations like battles as a result of which women and have no one to take care of them. The idea of four marriages for a man in Islam might be glorified by men but the reality is that equal amount of attention and care must be given to all of the wives and such equality can only be done by Allah (SWT).
”But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one,” Surat An-Nisaa states. The surah decrees: “You will never be able to be equal between wives, even if you should strive to do so.”
