Can a man, converting to Islam marry another wife?


My friend married a Christian in a church wedding. After 20 years of marriage her husband converted the Muslim religion and married again to Muslim woman. Is his marriage to a Muslim woman legal? My friend and her husband still have not separated. Thank you.


"And He answered and said to them, "Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate"" (Matthew 19:4-6).

As far as whether it is legal in a particular country, I don't keep track of all the laws. I know it isn't legal in the United States. But in regards to God's law it is not allowed. The man is committing adultery. That his religion allows this doesn't make it right.

Thank you very much, sir, for your reply. God bless you always.
