Asalaam Alaykum,

I hope you are all well Inshallah. I have a question regarding temporary/permanent Nikkah for engagement. Which one is better? I have been informed by family and friends that permanent Nikkah is better because if you get temporary Mahram  with your fiancee, this might ceate doubts in your heart and give the idea this is temporary relationship. They say that after your temporary Nikkah has ended, you may break up and not willing marry that person. What is your opinion about this?

No doubt, both has their own significance so we can't really say which one is better. But I'd personally favor my daughter to get into a definite and permanent relation and live a happy and content life there on. But there is nothing wrong in doing a temporary marriage if both the parties agree.

After the period of temporary marriage has ended, there is no compulsion for any of the partner to re-marry (whether permanent or temporary) as far as I know.

Maybe someone else can shed light on this in a better way.

Zavon.
