I honestly never understood why twelvers make Nikah Mutah. 7 of the eight madhabs forbid it. With only twelvers being the exception. Zaydis also forbid. We have narrations from Ali (r.a) that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s) forbid mutah after Khaybar, now you can argument that Omar (r.a) enforced it as Haram, but you can't make argumentation that Abu Bakr (r.a) didn't do it and only Omar do it if you think that Abu Bakr (r.a) was wrong in a number of issues.

Obs - Omar was closer to Ali.

Wa aleykumsalaam,

Strangely, Imam Ali(as) narrates to Ibn Abbas in Sahih Muslim regarding Mutah being Haram, while Ibn Abbas himself was staunch believer of Mutah being Halal till the end of his life. Oddly, either the hadeeth is fabricated or one of the two is lying and we know this can't be the case. Then the only conclusion which can be made is that the hadeeth is Sahih, and forbiddance was temporary and later Umar made it Haram. This completes the puzzle and do the justice to both case of Khaybar and at the time of Umar. Other than that, then only one case can be true either Holy Prophet(s) forbid it or Umar forbid it.

I got this from a site, just read it:

you believe that nikah mu’tah (temporary marriage) is haram, while it was legal and even encouraged at the time of the Seal of all Prophets, Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله‎‎) Abu Bakr’s and Umar’s reign (1, 23, 4, 5, 6 and other), later to be forbidden by Umar in ONE specific case (1).

you believe that nikah mu’tah (temporary marriage), which is a sunnah of the Prophet and all the Ummah, that comes with a set of rules and obligations is haram, but you consider nikah misyar (traveller’s/visitor’s marriage) (1, 2), nikah urfi (customary marriage) (widespread in the tourist ‘hotspots’ such as Egypt, Tunisia and Marocco), nikah halala and jihad al nikah (sexual jihad) (1, 2, 3) as halal, despite all not being found in the Qur’an, Sunnah or classical works of Islamic jurisprudence, while being an outward bid’ah (innovation in religion).
