Sheikh Muhammad Nur Abdullah, former President of the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and member of the Fiqh Council of North America, states: “The requirements of marriage are to be known. It is not allowed to keep marriage secret. My advice to every Muslim man in this situation is to keep their family in peace rather than put himself for in a condition where he cannot save the first marriage nor keep the second one. He should not just follow his desires, but he should be mindful of Allah and save his marriage and children. Allah says: “but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one.” ( Surat an-Nisa’: 3)
