Indeed, All praises to Allah for making this book a reality "Polygyny with Mercy" by my dear brother and friend, Abdullateef Ibn Abdillahi As-sudaisiy. This book is timely because it is to be released at a time when there are a lot of misconceptions concerning the institution of polygyny.

We need to know the importance of this book and why we all need to get it.

The author divided it into five (5) major parts, namely: Introduction, fiqh issues, opinions and contemporary issues and lastly, polygyny and the West.

In the introduction, he made us understand what marriage is and the duties and responsibilities of couples. In the second part, he explained the nature of polygyny while mentioning the wisdom behind it. Looking at the detailed clarification given in this part, you will appreciate the objectives and beauty of polygyny. 

In the third part, the book explains conditions that could necessitate polygyny, the matter of justice between wives when it comes to maintenance and sharing of the nights. These are matters both brothers and sisters must have good knowledge about for effective running of the institution of polygyny.

The fourth part which is more of interest to me because deals with contemporary issues relating to polygyny. In this part, the Author discussed many issues including hatred of polygyny, women against women, dealing with co- wives and so on. 

If you have a copy of this book and you read it with plain mind, you would have done a lot of benefits to yourself because it clarifies many of the misconceptions that revolve around polygyny. 

Part five is all about polygyny and the West. The Author addressed issues of secularism and feminism in relation to polygyny. He explained euro-ceticism and how it affects polygyny. He also discussed polygyny and women's liberation. 

I want to use this opportunity to thank my brother for giving me the opportunity to go through this exceptional and unique book. I ask Allah to bless it and grant this work His Tawfeeq. May He also make it beneficial to whoever lays his or her hands on it.

Lastly, this is a book that everyone should get. It will be beneficial to both the singles and the married as well as those who intend to add more wives in the future.

May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alihi wa sallam, his noble household, his companions and all those who follow his path until the Day of gain and loss.
