Man

A man is a male human. The term man is usually reserved for an adult male, with the term boy being the usual term for a male child or adolescent. However, the term man is also sometimes used to identify a male human, regardless of age, as in phrases such as "men's basketball".

My understanding is that the emphasis on males having hur al-ayns is because God is shy and considers that women might also be more shy about these things. However, men are often not shy in broadcasting that they want many females and in fact sometimes consider it a manly thing to say, so God speaks of this from the male perspective.

The Qur'an is also discreet in discussing other delicate matters such as using the washroom and spousal relations, even though this discretion is not usually reflected in translation. 

Maybe also some of the men in that time period were a little difficult and they needed some extra encouragement. 

The Hereafter does not have the same considerations of this world, and God knows best how people will feel about these things in the Hereafter. 

In any case, the Quran (for instance in Surah Ya Sin) does in general speak of having the enjoyment of companionship in Paradise in a general sense (not limited to men).

Believing females will get in the Paradise the best of their wishes according to their noble wishes. All the wishes in the Paradise will be noble and no evil desire will remain in the heart of any believer (We removed from their chests every bad feeling)(Sura 7: Verse 43).

The pious woman will be granted the best man as her husband. Women do not like to be married to more than one man and those women who desire more than one man in this life are looked down by common women. No doubt such desire will never be in the heart of any pious woman in the Paradise. All noble desires and wishes of pious women will be granted in the Paradise.

There is no question of misogynistic act in Paradise because Allah The Most Merciful is equally Merciful on men as on women as both of them are His Creatures.

This question should be addressed to the Court authority which appoints the judges.

No doubt many women have brilliant abilities even more than some men.

If your question is related to Islamic court, then we say that woman is allowed to work in all the procedure of the Islamic court except the final judgment. Final judgment which is for the (Qadhi) has a condition among many conditions that Qadhi must be man. Islam does not expose the woman to challenge and hardship of final judgment which is usually face opposition of one party.

He needs to repent and decide not to commit such crime again and seek forgiveness from Allah (SWT) but he does not need to divorce his wife.

Committing such major sin is strongly forbidden and condemned and the knowledge or no knowledge of his wife does not change the rule.

Allah The Glorious knows all our deeds and we need to seek Forgiveness from Him. 

You do not need to mention your previous sins to any one except Allah, simply, because no one can forgive your sins but Allah (SWT).

In many cases, mentioning your previous sins can hurt the feeling of your spouse or displease them. Disclosing your previous sins can be harmful as it is possible that it can leak to others including your children when your spouse is unhappy with you. That is why, you should keep your sins between you and your Creator and seek His forgiveness.

Just repeat Estighfaar as many times as you can and seek from Allah (SWT) to forgive your sins and protect you and your family from every harm ijn this life and hereafter.

Islamic rules have punishment on certain major sins, but that punishments can only be implemented by the Prophet , Infallible Imam or his deputy.

Polygamy is allowed not only in Islam but in other religions including Christianity and you can find it in Old Testament. Jews and Christians claim following Ebrahim (Abraham) and every one knows that Ebrahim had more that one wife and his sons Ismail and Isaac are from different mothers.

Polygamy is required by human societies in many situations especially when the number of marriageable females is more than the number of marriageable males due to many reasons. This situation will make many marriageable females in need for a man to marry them even if he is already married with another female. With out legitimate polygamy, thousands of unmarried females will suffer a lot.

Polygamy is a blessing from Allah (SWT) on the human beings especially on the unmarried , divorced or widowed females.

Islam does not grant open permission for men to have more than one wife but puts a condition of practical justice on the man who wants to have more than one wife. If the man is unable to maintain the practical justice between his wives, then he is not allowed to marry more than one wife (If you fear that you shall not practice justice, then just one wife) (Sura 4, Verse 3).

Divorced wife is no ore a wife after passing the Iddah (Waiting period). Same for the husband who divorced his wife, he is no more a husband for her.

In Paradise, Allah (SWT) grants the best to the believers. The best husband will be given to the believing woman and the best wife will be given for the man. Allah (SWT) will remove all negative things from the believers in Paradise.

You are allowed to get married for more or less any reason you want. People (both men and women) decide to get married for all sorts of reasons. 

However, it is good for him to think deeply about whether or not he *should* do it since it will affect other people around him.

It is narrated that the Imams had shoulder-length hair (see the book Wahhabis' Fitna Exposed, which narrates a famous narration about Imam al-Ridha (as) when he was stopped on his way to Merv, and he pulled back the curtain on his howdah), but I am not aware of any particular fiqh that advises what is recommended.

Prophethood is a post of huge responsibility and a very big burden.
The prophets are required to face the objection of the tyrants and all
their followers and the prophets need to argue and strive and can be
tortured and even many prophets were been killed. The prophets need to
fight against the enemies of Allah SWT and lead wars to defend the
faith and that it is not practical to send a female as a prophet
because it won’t be appropriate for a female to do such harsh,
difficult and hard responsibility.

It must be also mentioned that the prophet cannot be a female because
the female is usually under the control of her husband or father or
the men of her family while the prophet should be in control of all
the society and not under control of anyone.

Also the female cannot be prophet because most of the females have
natural menstrual cycle during which they suffer from some symptoms
and also females usually have pregnancy and childbirth and have to
look after the infants and that all will have effect on her health and
mentality and this will not be appropriate with the responsibilities
of leading the whole community and the prophethood.

The prophet is supposed to be the teacher of all people and it is not
appropriate for a female to be a teacher of all because usually many
of the scholars from the men will not accept to be students of a
female.

In the Holy Qur’an in Surah al-Anmbiyah verse number 7, Allah SWT said
: “We did not send before you but men to whom we have revealed”
(ARABIC TEXT). Which is very clear that all those who were sent by
Allah to be the messengers and prophets are men.

We in Islam believe in the great pious ladies like the status of Lady
Maryam and the status of mother of Prophet Musa and the status of
mother Prophet Ishaaq as we read in the Holy Qur’an that Allah SWT has
sent the angels to speak to them but angels speaking to a servant of
Allah SWT does not mean that this servant becomes a prophet.

Some Sunni Ulama Abul Hassan al-Ashari and like Ibn Hazm and like
al-Qurtubi claimed that Lady Maryam and other ladies were prophets and
their claim was because of angels talking to some pious ladies. This
claim has been refuted by almost the vast majority of Sunni Ulama and
all the Shia Ulama as well.

The well known Sunni scholar al-Nawawi mentioned in his book al-Azkaar
from Imam al-Harmain that there is Ijmaa among the Ulama that Maryam
was not a prophet.

The greatness of Fatemah (AS) in fact is more than the status of all
the prophets except her father which means that Islam has given the
highest status to Fatemah (AS) because she was entitled to that status
and because she is part of her father Muhammad (SAWA) who is the best
of all the human kind.

Those who claim that Islam does not give enough respect to the women
because in Islam there are no female prophets, you ask them do they
have in Torah or Bible any evidence that and female prophet was sent
by Allah to guide people?

Islam is the most practical and most realistic religion and that is
why it gives every responsibility to the appropriate person who can
handle it.

as salam alaikum

it is not difficult for all men to convince their wives to have another wife and it is not difficult for all wives to accept an husband with more than one wife. Also, it is not necessary for all men to have more than one wife and in many cases it may be detrimental for them. People differs and sometimes there are situations that call for specific choices. For example the Qur'an says: "And if you fear that you will not be able to to justice to the orphan girls, then marry of women as may be agreeable to you two or three or four, but if you fear that you will not be able to deal equitably then one" (4:3).

With prayers for your success.
