Part of the answer is given , see earlier post.<quoted text>
please do not conveniently fail to explain , refute , belie this:
Quran:When Allah was revealing to the angels,I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers hearts terror; so cut above the necks, and cut every finger of them! Quran 8:12.
will you ?
you also conveniently failed to explain why Allah said one wife but muhammed changed it to.. 4 for others and as many as he liked for himself.:))
God permitted muslims to marry 4 provided they met conditions as to be absolutely just in all respects, that may disqualify many and God says if you can meet the conditions then only one is permitted.
Mohammad married more than 4 because God permitted him and many of them actually had no sexual angle to them for they were old for that. Some were to foster tribal relations as well and some were gifts by kings and it was considered not done to refuse. But having said that Mohammad is a mighty prophet and choosen by God and God can bestow upon him anything. Mohammad was distinquished among all other messengers by the boon to enact rules in the ame of God.
