Prominent Saudi preacher Dr. A'ed al-Qarni has called on men in the kingdom to be "satisfied" with a monogomous marriage and not marry more than one woman.

Speaking on an MBC talk show this week, Qarni said: "I advise men to be content with one wife. If a man wishes to marry more, then God help him. But it is not worth the hassle that will affect both him, and the women he marries."

The Sheikh was speaking about the topic despite he himself being polygamous.

Seperately, Qarni called on fellow preachers to stop getting involved in political debates, saying he had "divorced politics."

Qarni stressed that his mission is to communicate religion through Quranic verses, Hadiths in order to better the lives of individuals.
