A Saudi national has allegedly tied the knot with four Moroccan women on the same day, stirring a heated debate among social media users, who shared their thoughts on polygamy over the weekend.
There is a questionable perception in countries across the Arab world that Islam unconditionally allows men to be married to more than one woman at a time. However, many seem to simply ignore or forget that taking more than one wife is permissible only under a given frame of conditions.
True. For example, if a married man wants to have two wives, then he needs to get the permission of his first wife. See, women have freedom in Islam.
A woman was allegedly burnt alive by her husband in Tank district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa after she refused to grant him permission for a second marriage.
"Freedom" has consequences.
