Our 1st Debate Question is "If Allah had permitted not men but women to have multiple spouses, and the husbands of these marriages knew that the wives preferred others husbands over them, how would these Muslim husbands feel?"

Muhammad himself saw the problems for women inherent in polygamy, but did not care, EXCEPT WHEN IT CAME TO HIS OWN DAUGHTER, FATIMAH. When his son-in-law, Ali, wanted to marry others besides Fatimah, Muhammad declared that he could not. (And I don’t believe Ali ever did, while Muhammad was alive). Muhammad did not mind many women having to deal with undevoted husbands, except when it came to his own dearly beloved daughter.
