A person has four wives. Is he

Q 3: What is the ruling on a Muslim man marrying five women? If he divorces one of them, is it permissible that she stays with him and travels with him everywhere along with the other four wives?

A: It is impermissible for a Muslim man to have more than four wives under his bond of marriage as there are many evidences to this effect. If the one that is divorced is the last one in chronological marriage order, divorcing her will be sufficient. Otherwise, the last woman you married, i.e. the fifth wife, is to be divorced. You are not a Mahram (unmarriageable relative or spouse) to the woman you divorced, for you contracted her marriage after having four wives. (Part No. 18; Page No. 260) May Allah grant us success.
