Introduction of Polygamy
In Malaysia, the Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act 1976 banned polygamy for non-Muslims, and since it came into force in 1982, polygamy has become increasingly associated with Islam. However, regardless of claims by some Muslims that polygamy is their religious “right”, Islam neither invented nor encouraged polygamy. Unlimited polygamy was the norm in pre-Islamic times, and the Qur’an’s provisions on polygamy were restrictive rather than permissive.

Many of our critics accuse SIS of trying to challenge divine provisions for polygamy, but these accusations are inaccurate. Rather, SIS calls for regulation and restrictions on polygamy, on Islamic grounds, to prevent it from being abused. Our stand is that if the rights of Muslim women and children are upheld and advanced as enshrined in the spirit of the Qur’an, only then will justice prevail in Muslim families.
