Polygamy in Islaam by Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips and Jameelah Jones. In this book the authors describe all the most characteristics of marriage in Islam, pointing out Western notions of sex equality and romantic pre-marital ‘love’ are not necessary in a Islamic marriage based upon piety and the commitment on the part of both partners to win the pleasure of Allah.
