Salam, I recently asked you a question regarding polygamy:
Question: Salam, Is it permissible to sleep with multiple wives at the same time in the same bed as long as the wives have their private parts covered infront of each other or if they are unable to see or touch each others awra. Thanks,

As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,We hope this answer reaches you in good health and Islamic spirit.Based on your specific question and information provided.From the Islamic Fiqh/Jurisprudence/Law perspective. It is permissible with the informed Consent of the wives and with all the conditions you have mentioned in your question.اَللّٰهُ أَعْلَم‎(Allah(awj) Knows best)
Does this mean that a man can have sex with his wife infront of the other wives as long as the awra of the wives is covered in front of the other wives and they are not able to touch each others awra? Or is this just permitting them sleeping in the same bed together without engaging in sexual acts
Thanks,

Based on your specific question and information provided.

It is Haram (Forbidden) to have Sexual Intercourse / Relationship / Any Sexual Act / anything of Sexual Nature with your Wife, in front of or in the presence of Anyone. (Watching / Hearing)

From the Islamic Fiqh/Jurisprudence/Law perspective. It is Permissible (Mubah) to be in the same bed with the intention of just sleeping together with the Informed Consent of the wives and with strict adherence to the conditions mentioned in your original question.

However,  It will be Haram (Forbidden) if you know  that this environment could lead to Haram (Forbidden) / Unnatural / Inclinations / Desires / Acts among the participants.
