Just read the article on BBC News. Love this bit:

"So some Muslims [in this case Sunni Muslims] are against it because they follow the interpretation and the suggestion made by the second Caliph. The Shias say that we stick to the Koran and the practices of the Prophet."

What is Muta'ah anyways? I hear a lot of people say it's like prostitution or anything, but I can never find anything about it online... Only negative things.

Is it allowed? What does it do?

Even before that is good too :P :

He admits there is a sectarian divide over the issue: "Umar [ibn al-Khattab, the second Caliph of Islam], himself said that the mut'ah was lawful at the time of the Prophet but he banned it and said he would punish everyone who does it.

As a true Shia he doesnt even bother saying the name in full, giving Umar any more respect is a waste of breath :P

Sunni hypocrisy:

"I have never come across a Sunni scholar, throughout history, who declares mut'ah marriage to be halal," said Mrs Hassan.

Khola Hassan says there is no difference between nikah mut'ah and prostitution

"There is no difference between mut'ah marriage and prostitution. There is a time limit on the marriage, and the mahr given as a gift [from the man to the woman] is the equivalent as a payment to a prostitute," she added.

While she leaves out Misyar, a more liberal practice, accepted by most Sunni scholars.
