Requesting In A Marriage Contract That The Husband Cannot Have Any Other Wives

Question 5: It has spread in some salafi sisters, when someone asks her to marry, the sister’s make a condition that he does not remarry. Is this a recognized condition?

Answer: It is not known and it does not comply with this condition in the word of Allah:

فانكحوا ما طاب لكم من النساء مثنى وثلاث ورباع

Marry what you like from women: two, three or four.

And the Prophet peace and blessing be upon him
said: “Any condition that is not in the Book of Allah is void, even if they are a hundred in number. “(1)

(1)’s note: Reported by Ibn Majah, Nasai, Al Bazzar, and At Tabarani from Ibn ‘Abbas.Authenticated by Shaykh al-Albani
