Does Islam allow the believers have some extra marital affairs?
Merciful Allah encourages men to have extra marital affair and He made it lawful,in simple word man can have his wives that have paid their dowries and at the same time they can have countless sex partners (it is “sex slaves” that Quran call them”right hand possession ” , “spoils of war “etc…) . Quran makes it clear in this verse:
=() Qur’an (33:50) “Pickthall: O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, AND THOSE WHOM THY RIGHT HAND POSSESSETH OF THOSE WHOM ALLAH HATH GIVEN THEE AS SPOILS OF WAR …”

Muhmmad had many slaves and recieved some women as gift as well ( women such as Mariyah and Sirin who were sent to him as a gift from al-Muqawqis, the ruler of Egypt ) he slept with them ,lived with them and he never married them:>>
