Shareef Ibn Rufaa’i Aboo Aaishah Al Odeomeey  08/9/1444AH

Polygyny with Mercy (Synopsis on Plural Marriage According to the Sharīah), a book written by our brother Abdullateef Lanre Abdullahi Ibn Abdillah As-sudaisiy Al-Iloori, is an exquisite lantern that should be purchased for every home. What makes this book outstanding is that it deals with polygyny related issues in the light of the Qur’aan, Sunnah, the exegesis of Islaamic scholars and a great deal of practical experiences gathered from local and international sources. This book contains the essential rule of thumb for comprehensive understanding of the rights and obligations of the believers in monogamy and polygyny. If one needs a more pulled together look that includes all the components of polygyny, ranging from the basic concepts to contemporary issues as well as the western influence, one should just get this book. How I wish it could be read to the hearings of the entire populace at a conference hall.

The author did to the polygyny discuss, what it desperately needs. He discussed the concept of marriage, with a breakdown of the various responsibilities of the couples. Afterwards, he expounded, with a deep sense of expertise, the requisites of polygyny not leaving behind the fiqh issues with a plethora of excellent examples. It doesn’t end there; he excellently explained some contemporary issues regarding polygyny that everyone should be aware of. Undoubtedly, one would marvel and appreciate the confidence and experience with which he dealt with the influence of westernization on the general idea of polygyny. Just get a copy of this book and thank me later.

It is worthy of mention that the simplicity of the book in terms of appropriate usage of words, breakdown of terminologies and its coherent synopsis makes it second to none. Due to the interesting nature of the book, I read the over 250 pages typescript in 4 days, even while fasting in the month of Ramadhaan 1444AH.

May Allaah accept this work as a meritorious act of Ibaadah from Ustaadh Ibn Abdillah as-sudaisy, increase him in beneficial knowledge, strengthen him, make his feet firm in the Deen, raise him to a great and lofty height, provide him with all his needs and most importantly grant us and him Jannatul firdaus. We praise Allaah and ask Him to make this book beneficial to the Muslims and to guide us to the Straight Path, the Path of the Prophet and his Companions. We ask Allaah to make this purely for His Face for verily He is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
