The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Marry more, you will be more numerous because on the Day of Resurrection I will be proud of other nations for your abundance.
Better is he who has many wives.
Imam Bukhari (may Allah have mercy on him) has established a chapter in Sahih Bukhari entitled:
Chapter Multiple Women (having multiple wives). We have established this chapter and brought the following hadith under it:
On the authority of Saeed ibn Jubayr, he said: Ibn Abbas said: Are you married? قلتُ لا ، قال: فتقوج ، فان خیرھذہ الامۃ Most of the time.
Sa’eed ibn Jubayr (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: ‘Abdullah ibn’ Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) asked me, ‘Are you married?’ I said, “No.” Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas said, “Marry because the best in this ummah is the one who has more wives.”
It is known that this nation of Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) has a text on the virtue of polygamy
Explaining the above statement, Hafiz Ibn Hajar said: In this hadeeth, Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allaah be pleased with him) pointed out that abandoning marriage is not something that should be preferred, because The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to marry her, but the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to marry a lot, despite having the greatest fear and knowledge of Allaah.
And in “Shifa” it is written that the Arabs used to like the multiplicity of marriages because it was the people who got married.
So show your manhood.

In the age in which we are living, the practice of one marriage has become common and people have started considering the second marriage as bad, even though Allah Almighty has stated in His laws that the birth rate of women is higher than that of men. That is why Allah Almighty commanded a man to have four marriages. He also allowed them to be content with one thing at a time.
