(bismillah) Salaamun Aliakum, How many ladies think muta'h marriage is bad? If no, then would you do it?

Salaam Alaikum,

I don't think muta'h marriages are bad. However, there is always a few groups of people who will use it to their negative advantage and make it look bad. Only perform muta'h with someone who you KNOW you will perform nikaah with.

For example, no matter how many ahadith we quote to parents in our culture, getting married before finishing university and getting a job and standing on your own feet - is impossible! They are okay with an engagement (which has no basis in Islam!) but not with muta'h (which clearly does!). So do we remain namahram for the next 3 years? No! We lawfully perform muta'h so that we can be in each other's company, not for any other sexual purpose that some people think.

Wasalaam.

If the female is a virgin and the intention is only a mut`ah without the understanding of it being turned into a nikaH, then yes, I personally do not approve of it. But then, unless and until you know what prompted them to involve themselves in the same, it would be better not to pass judgment.

Also, even if it is going to translate into a permanent marriage, the mut`ah had better be conditional - the clause being that what makes it makruh for a virgin to enter into a mut`ah, will not be entertained by the woman.

I am in a mut`ah currently.

mutah is an islamic concept, hence labelling it as "bad" means objecting the laws of Allah (s.w.t)

On the contrary, preference to do it or not, is another question, and is entirely dependent on the person itself

Salaam, Yes, i know brother. I just want to know what ladies think of it. for example like a mustahab act, some people do it n others ignore it Wassalaam

Well, one can't exactly say something that God has allowed is bad/wrong/haram..or else we would become umar # 2

But it's not for me, real marriage is complicated enough :roll:

Salaam, i agree. But now dayz people question everything. Wassalaam

Here is the thing though, it is not 100% accepted Allah (swt) has allowed. I mean it is mentioned in various hadiths, but from what I know twelver Shia which claim that it is mentioned in the Quran. All other sects of Muslims apparently disagree with it.

Well in my opinion, the only to set the judge weather it is good or bad, is via the intentions of the girl/guy @ hand. if there intentions are good then its good. if there just experimenting or having fun then its bad.

Only for understanding and not involving any physical relationship!!!

But as it was said in this thread that no matter how many ahadith we put forward in front of our parents muttah will remain a taboo for them!

And for a virgin the boy has to get permission from her father so i guess muttah for whatever reasons, will be considered forbidden

Hmmm.. I personally totally agree with mut3ah.. but the whole society is against me on this one.. but hey who cares about what others think when it's halal :D :D

So, I think it's a good start to a permanent relationship. Like I can hangout with a guy "alone" without it being haram.. so I get to know him more like one on one & get the physical tension out of the way coz when u r attracted to someone it means you are into him physically as well.. so why not act human? As long it's halal..

So, I'm all for it.. if the purpose behind it could lead to a real mirage.. like you try the person.. if it works.. then go deep and do the real deal :D coz real marriage cost a lot of money so I think you must be like %100 sure before you go ahead and do it.. and you can't be that sure unless you really know the guy..

BUT, I disagree with mut3ah if it was ONLY for sexual purposes.. tho it's not haram.. but I wouldn't do it for that reason.. oh well maybe if he was knock dead gorgeous I might consider it.. JK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Naaah I wouldn't

Me too! ^_^ I quite like the situation I am in (waiting until his scholarship finishes so we can marry permanently inshaAllah) and I am happy that we are able to be together in a way that is fine religiously. It also helps if you have a non-Muslim family who would feel slighted if you got married suddenly. If they want you to take your time, then you can show them how you are with your spouse and let them become used to it before you get married "permanently", if that makes sense.

^ Sounds like we're in a similar situation. I also have mutah and am waiting for him to finish his scholarship so we can make it legal, inshallah. Does his family know about you? As for me, his family knows about me but they don't really take it seriously because I'm white and a convert. I guess I don't really count in their eyes. :(

Regarding the thread, I agree that there are circumstances that make it difficult for nikah. However, I personally would much rather have nikah, because there's not much stability or security in mutah obviously, as it's simply a temporary agreement.

Yeah his family know :) I don't think they took me seriously in the beginning, but it's been a while (1 year 6 months so far) so they've gotten used to the idea thank God! But I agree with you, I'd rather have a nikah - but for the time being, mut'ah will do :)

But why one has to indulge in mutaah marriages?then what about the following hadith?

It was narrated from ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade mut’ah marriage and the meat of domestic donkeys at the time of Khaybar. According to another report, he forbade mut’ah marriage at the time of Khaybar and he forbade the meat of tame donkeys.

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 3979; Muslim, 1407.

It was narrated from al-Rabee’ ibn Sabrah al-Juhani that his father told him that he was with the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) who said, “O people, I used to allow you to engage in mut’ah marriages, but now Allaah has forbidden that until the Day of Resurrection, so whoever has any wives in a mut’ah marriage, he should let her go and do not take anything of the (money) you have given them.”

Narrated by Muslim, 1406.

It was narrated from ‘Ali that he heard Ibn ‘Abbaas permitting mut’ah marriage, and he said, “Wait a minute, O Ibn ‘Abbaas, for the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade it on the day of Khaybar and (he also forbade) the meat of tame donkeys.”

Narrated by Muslim, 1407.

The wife is the one with whom one stays on a long-term basis, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“… and live with them honourably …” [al-Nisaa’ 4:19],

but in the case of mut’ah a man does not live with the woman for long.

The wife is the one who inherits from the husband, or from whom the husband inherits, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“In that which your wives leave, your share is a half if they have no child…” [al-Nisaa’ 4:12].

But the woman in a mut’ah marriage does not inherit, because she is not a wife, since she spends such a short time with the man.

On these grounds, Mut’ah marriage is considered to be zinaa (adultery or fornication), even if both parties consent to it, and even if it lasts for a long time, and even if the man pays the woman a mahr. There is nothing that has been reported in sharee’ah that shows that it may be permitted, apart from the brief period when it was allowed during the year of the conquest of Makkah. That was because at that time there were so many people who has newly embraced Islam and there was the fear that they might become apostates, because they had been used to committing zinaa during the Jaahiliyyah. So this kind of marriage was permitted for them for three days, then it was made haraam until the Day of Resurrection, as was narrated by Muslim, 1406.

Yes,it is there

but for that now you are saying or express that just because of that reason temporary marriages are not haraam but halaal... :(

If you believe in these hadith(most authentic one's)then there are sayings of hazrat ali(r.a)too.

So,rejecting this one(means Hazrat Ali(r.a)sayings and rejecting quran.(Quran is there)

Read it clearly.Quranic ayats.

last thing if you really want to follow your wishes and your heart in this matter then you will get nothing but wrath(anger) of Allah

Of course,if one follow his evil conscience then it will say you to follow it.

As Salamu Alikum Warahmantu Allah Wabarktu,

mutah is good praticing it prepares for for nikkah, screens poetential partners, and recevies sexual desire in a lawful way. Thou it can be abused, here in amertica we have some brothers who mutah a different ahlul kitab woman every week, or month.

Allahumma Sale Ale Muhammad Wa Ale Muhammad

It depends on the situation and on the woman. Generally, I think mut'a can be bad for society when it's a cause of delay in nikah. It is also bad when their is deception, whether its men lying to women about the status of their situation or women lying to themselves about the true status of the situation.

For women involved in mut'as with men who have promised to marry them in nikah later, I would suggest you end the mut'a and give him an ultimatum. It may seem harsh, but these situations rarely result in nikah marriage, especially if you are a convert. If his family doesn't accept you it's not just because you are white, it's because he hasn't taken you seriously enough to marry you in nikah. The status of the relationship is temporary and so they have no reason to take it seriously. Traditionally in most Muslim cultures a man who respects a woman and cares about her status in society will not be in a mut'a with her and if he is concerned about being able to support her he will do the aqd with the understanding that she is temporarily giving up some of that right. If you want a "permanent" marriage then you should contract one.

There are exceptions and I have seen them, but they are just that, exceptions. I'm sure no one will heed this warning, but at least I've put it on the table and maybe young women will think twice before entering mutas with a promise (implied or explicit) that it will one day become more.

Think before it's too late.Why one need mutah?Today there is lot of contradictions when it comes to matter of hadith but quran is explicilty saying about it and when one leaves teachings of quran sooner or later leads to destruction.

Why will one need mutah?now responses we get or look at are to have sexual desire in a lawful way?Then what's the use of marriage.Marriage is a beautiful relationship.And islam has allowed that before going into marriage relationship one can know his partner (spouse)[only upto the limit where they reach to conclusion of marriage without misusing it]

Now one will say that it's same like mutah?no,it's not.Mutah is to fulfill sexual desires in lawful way(as one said above)then in that manner what's the difference between boyfriend and girlfriend(the thing that is common now-a-days)?

When quran is shown no one agrees.When hadith is shown no body is ready to accept truth that mutaah is haraam?reason?

because mutah is something like that.Sexual needs are there in human and for fulfilling that Allah has made beautiful relation "marriage"

If mutah is allowed then what's the use of this world?If mutah is allowed then ofcourse there will be no problem like illegal relationship?But one thing then what's the use of "taqwa".In many things we have to preserve oursleves and through this Allah tests us.After our preservence only he bless us through his blessings.

Mutah was there no doubt but it was only allowed during conquest of makkah(and that also due to reason so that people don't become apostates.At that time there was so much jahiliya and there was fear that they don't become apostated)

After that it was made haraam till day of judgement.(hadith's i have posted earlier and even hadith's in which hazrat Ali(r.a)told about it(authentic hadith))

that is why it is said for men and women to lower their gaze in quran.But when one gets married then do Allah puts this command on boy or girl(ofcourse not).Why?because then they are in relationship of marriage.And marriage is halaal.Why you need to follow course which will ruin you only(not only you the entire nation)

Don't follow your desires.We have send on earth to follow Allah's command.So,follow his command or else you will enter His wrath

ya Allah!guide muslims.Open their heart to right path.Don't let them follow their wishes that will only ruin you.

This mutah can only harm you.If it could benefit you then Allah would have made it halaal.Same like porn it is prohibited.Same like alcohol it is prohibited .But muslims still drink and eat haraam.Why?because they follow their evil conscience and can't stop it because once thy get into it they get so much addiction.

So,if mutah is haraam once you will get into it many will get deviated from right path like one get while drinking alcohol or eating porn.

Porn or alcohol is prohibited ?We follow commands of Allah and don't take it as Allah know's best.Today science has proved the disadvantages of taking alcohol and porn.And how it is runing the society.So,think people before it's too late.Allah has given mind to think.You see things but atleast ponder yourself why Allah would make it halaal?Why?

Did prophet muhammad(S.a.w)did in his life?What about sahabas who were with Hazrat Muhammad(s.a.w)?

Did Hazrat Ali(r.a)did in his life?Did Hazrat fatima(r.a)did it?

Everyone has read how hazrat khadija(r.a)and prophet muhammad(s.aw)got married?

Oh Allah!i Seek refuge in Thee from a heart that knows humility,from the knowledge that yields no profit,from a soul that is never satisfied and from a prayer that is not answered.

Oh Allah!grant my soul to righteousness and purify it.Thou art its best purifier.Thou art its protector and patron.

Oh Allah!i seek refuge in Thee from anxiety and grief,from incapacity and sloth,from niggardliness and cowardice,from the burden of indebtedness and domination of men

Congratulations! I hope things work out for you inshallah!

Thanks! I would not undertake it was there not assurance from the other end that it would be so, nor would my father have given permission for the same, were it not.

But as it was said in this thread that no matter how many ahadith we put forward in front of our parents muttah will remain a taboo for them!

I guess I am fortunate to have parents with an Islamic outlook instead of cultural (read Sayyid/Hindustani community; the khoja community here always has the couple united in a mut`ah prior to the nikaH).

And for a virgin the boy has to get permission from her father so i guess muttah for whatever reasons, will be considered forbidden

The female can attempt that too. But I suppose that again depends on the family's mindset in order for the female to be able to muster the courage to do so.

Like I can hangout with a guy "alone" without it being haram..

LOL@"hangout with a guy". I hope that was meant in the general sense of what I understood your post to imply, of getting into a permanent relationship, and not that you just get to hang out with someone of the opposite gender. That would be demeaning and cheap.

I am in some kind of a mut`ah where I can't "hang out" with him. We have never seen each other in flesh and probably will not until the nikaH (I must have been quite strict with the 'not permitted to see me' condition because when I finally sent him a few snaps after the mut`ah, his response was that he hadn't expected me to send him ones without Hijab :!!!: Reason being I had refused to send my photograph, in Hijab, of course, when we had entered into talks earlier and had just put up one of the muHajjibah me - face only - for around half a minute). For that matter, we hadn't even spoken to each other until our `aqd - that was our first "conversation".

I do not see why this takes the rap. Transgressions do not just take place when you are physically together. If there's going to be a nikaH, why not make it a little more comfortable for yourself? And why not have a Halal outlet to lose your inhibitions if there is going to be some waiting time before the nikaH? My own situation, I know is a very complicated one but it is I (and he) who have chosen this path, and it is pointless being in a nikaH when you can't even be "available" for each other.

I do understand AnotherUmmAli's concern though, given the number of stories I have read or heard of revert women having been cheated or taken advantage of. If only girls would stop thinking with their emotions instead of their `aql, they would not be girls...

they would be women -_-

as salam alaykum,

Actually sister Phoenix, I think your situation is an example of an excellent use of mut'a and a HUGE improvement over the marriage/divorce things that a lot of Arabs do (and probably others as well) where the "engagement" is a supposedly sexless marriage and if things don't work out they have to actually divorce.

I was mostly talking about situations where there is sex involved. Don't be fooled into thinking this issue is just with revert women, though. A lot of young ladies from Muslim families fall into those traps too, but often in their cases they at least had someone to warn them. And every young lady thinks she will be the exception, that he really LOVES her, and he may, just not enough to stand up to his family.

If only girls would stop thinking with their emotions instead of their `aql, they would not be girls...

they would be women -_-

In that case there are a lot of girls in their 30s,40s and fifties, and lots of men who are "girls" too.

Aham!!

There may be many hadith in Bukhari and Muslim that are valid and authentic. However, Bukhari has also narrated many of his hadith from personalities that we shias do not consider as too reliable. For example, a couple of days ago, a sunni was quoting a hadith from Abu Huraira, which was saying something along the lines of how our Holy Prophet preferred Abu Lahab to Abu Talib, this was an attempt to portray Abu Talib (ra) as a kaffir (naozobillah). I found this very ironic, as Abu Huraira was very supportive of Muawiyya during the battle of Siffin, a sworn enemy of Ali (as), and hence, an element of bias obviously comes into play. Yet, Bukhari accepts him, and many other figures as reliable narrators of hadith. This is something very prevalent among sunni historians as you consider everyone great... just for the sake that they were there during the time of our Holy Prophet.

Infact, here is clear evidence that Umar banned mutah, NOT the Holy Prophet.

In a famous sermon [15] the second caliph 'Umar banned mut'a with the following words: 'Two mut'a were practiced during the time of the Prophet [i.e. temporary marriage and mutat al-hajj], [16] but I forbid both of them and will punish anyone who practices either.'

Ahmad b.Hanbal, al-Musnad, Beirut, n.d., 1,52.

Fine,but then what about quranic sayings i mentioned below?

Even then if one to go on with his human wishes go ahead[as one of the weakness of human]

May Allah guide them who wish to be guided and learn something.

There are several ways in which every ayat in the Holy Quran can be interpreted. There might be some things that were permitted is Islam before, but than a verse was revealed to completely outlaw it. This was the case with alcohol, etc...

This verse is yet the strongest of evidence that mutah was allowed. AND, there was no verse revealed after it to outlaw it, and the fact that it was UMAR who banned it, showed that muta was practised even AFTER the Holy Prophets death...

'Lawful for you is what is beyond all that, that you may seek, using your wealth, in wedlock and not in licence. So those of them whom you enjoy, give them their appointed wages; it is no fault in you in agreeing together, after the due apportionate. God is All-Knowing, All-Wise' (4:24). All Shi'i ulama' and some Sunni ulama' hold that this verse-especially the words: 'Such wives as you enjoy (istamta'tum)'-refers to the permissibility of mut'a.

The quranic verse that you provided proved nothing!

ma'salaam
