Is it permissible for a marriage contract to contain a condition that the husband is never to marry a second wife?


On this link, Shaykh Bin Baaz sees the condition of not get married to a second wife to be a valid condition. However, some shuyookh see otherwise.

Shaykh Albany rahimahullah, said:

فنحن نقول ناصحين للرجال: حذار أن يقبلوا شروطاً مفروضة من النساء؛ لأن المستقبل لا يعلمه إلا الله تبارك وتعالى،

“We say as advisors to the men: beware to accept conditions which have been placed down by the women since no one knows the future except Allah”.
