With popular demand on the explanation of Mut’aa, I present to you:  “Is Mut’aa forbidden”?

Quran: Surah: Nisa(4) Verse:24And all married women are forbidden save those whom your right hand possess. (This is) Allah’s written ordinance for you. Except for these, allowed to you are all women; that you seek them in exchange for wealth to marry, not for debauchery. As to those whom you have married for a fixed time (Mut’aa), give them there agreed dowries; and there is no sin for you in what you mutually agree together after what has been settled. Verily, Allah is all-Knowing, Wise.

Let me break down the verse for you and show you the Qareena(indicators) that you so strongly desire:

The verse in Arabic reads- Wa Al-Muhsanatu Mina An-Nisā’ ‘Illā Mā Malakat ‘Aymānukum Kitāba Allāhi `Alaykum Wa ‘Uĥilla Lakum Mā Warā’a Dhālikum ‘An Tabtaghū Bi’amwālikum Muĥşinīna Ghayra Musāfiĥīna Famastamta-tum bihi Minhunna Fa’ātūhunna ‘Ujūrahunna Farīđatan Wa Lā Junāĥa `Alaykum Fīmā Tarāđaytum Bihi Min Ba`di Al-Farīđati ‘Inna Allāha Kāna `Alīmāan Ĥakīmāan.

The word Muhsanat means well-guarded or protected.  They are married women (free and slave), minors and insane females. “Save those whom your right hands own” signifies “such married women as shall come in your possession as prisoners of war”.  Such women, when not taken back on payment of ransom or through negotiation, are lawful as wives, even though their previous marriage has not been formally dissolved, provided the infidel woman becomes a Muslim.

Now, Famastamta-tum bihi is the Qareena that provides for Mut’aa marriage. (It is translated to “when you have enjoyment with her”)  It has been made lawful by the Quran and the Holy Prophet, therefore, it cannot be unlawful by anyone unless, Allah(swt) makes it unlawful in the Quran.  Because nothing can make a Quranic verse null unless it is from the Quran.  I challenge you to produce a single verse in the Quran that banned Mut’aa.  If you dare bring me a verse I will refute it.  I already know the verse you may try to bring. A non scholar, Sunni of course, tried to bring a verse that had nothing to with the subject; but because it sounded relevant, he used it.  I bring this up because you are the same kind of people; you have never read the Quran or even hadith, all you do is go to hate sites and hear someone say something and it becomes dogma for you.  My suggestion would be not to humiliate yourself by doing that, maybe you won’t.  I will give you a hint (33:52).  The only thing you are good for is bringing random verses without even knowing what they mean, what they are referring to, and presenting them as your proof.  So what proof do you produce?  You present us with hadith that says Mut’aa was banned by the Holy Prophet. Your favorite one’s are narrated by Imam Ali(as). Three examples:

Sahih Bukhari: Volume: 5 Book: 59 Number: 527Narrated ‘Ali bin Abi Talib: On the day of Khaybar, Allah’s Apostle forbade the Mut’a (temporary marriage) and the eating of donkey-meat.

Sahih Bukhari: Volume:5 Book:62 Number:50Narrated ‘Ali: I said to Ibn ‘Abbas, “During the battle of Khaibar the Prophet forbade (Nikah) Al-Mut’a and the eating of donkey’s meat.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume:7 Book:67 Number:432Narrated ‘Ali: Allah’s Apostle prohibited Al-Mut’a marriage and the eating of donkey’s meat in the year of the Khaibar battle

First off, hadith does not cancel Quran, like I said– if a hadith contradicts Quran you don’t accept it.  But let me refute it in a different manner.  There are about 117 hadith (Bukhari) referring to the day of Khaybar.  In all, they narrate three (3) things that were banned: Mut’aa, donkey meat and garlic.  Mut’aa is mentioned only seven(7) times.  I already posted three hadith that say’s Mut’aa was banned on the day of khaybar.

Sahih Bukhari: Volume: 5  Book: 59 Number: 526-Narrated Ibn Umar: On the day of Khaiber, Allah’s Apostle forbade the eating of garlic and the meat of donkeys.

Sahih Bukhari: Volume:67 Book:67 Number:429Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: On the Day of the battle of Khaibar, Allah’s Apostle made donkey’s meat unlawful and allowed the eating of horse flesh. (Also Volume: 7 Book: 67 Number: 433)

So then how come you still eat garlic?  You say that the Prophet banned Mut’aa during the day of Khaybar; he also banned garlic and donkey meat.  How come Ahlul Sunna still eat garlic??? It’s simple: because it was only banned for that one day.  But let’s look at this from another angle, because you will produce me fake hadith from Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim where Imam Ali(as) says it’s banned forever. examples:

Sahih Bukhari: Volume:7 Book:62 Number:52–  Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah and Salama bin Al-Akwa’: While we were in an army, Allah’s Apostle came to us and said, “You have been allowed to do the Mut’a (marriage), so do it.” Salama bin Al-Akwa’ said: Allah’s Apostle’s said, “If a man and a woman agree (to marry temporarily), their marriage should last for three nights, and if they like to continue, they can do so; and if they want to separate, they can do so.” I do not know whether that was only for us or for all the people in general. Abu Abdullah (Al-Bukhari) said: ‘Ali made it clear that the Prophet said, “The Mut’a marriage has been cancelled (made unlawful).”

Sahih Muslim: Book: 008 Number: 3266Ali (Allah be pleased with him) heard that Ibn Abbas (Allah be pleased with them) gave some relaxation in connection with the contracting of temporary marriage, whereupon he said: Don’t be hasty (in your religious verdict), Ibn ‘Abbas, for Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the Day of Khaibar prohibited for ever the doing of it-And eating of the flesh of domestic asses.

Sahih Muslim: Book: 008 Number: 3262Sabra al-Juhanni reported on the authority of his father: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) prohibited the contracting of temporary marriage and said: Behold, it is forbidden from this very day of yours to the Day of Resurrection, and he who has given something (as a dower) should not take it back.

Although some people differed:

Sahih Bukhari: Volume:7 Book:62 Number:52Narrated Abu Jamra: I heard Ibn Abbas (giving a verdict) when he was asked about the Mut’a with the women, and he permitted it (Nikah-al-Mut’a). On that a freed slave of his said to him, “That is only when it is very badly needed and women are scarce.” On that, Ibn ‘Abbas said, “Yes.”

The first question is, so what happened to the garlic?  It’s funny how garlic is no longer brought up.  Yes you have hadith that mentions “don’t come to the mosque when you eat it”, it says “wait till the odor dies”.  There is even hadith where someone is asked a question about eating garlic.  He asked, “is it forbidden?” The man replies NO.  (example: Sahih Muslim: book:23 hadith:5097).  But never mind that now, let’s get back to the subject at hand.  If Mut’aa was banned by the Prophet(sawaw) then by your standards  Abu Bakr and Omar are Kafirs.  Why?  Because hadith narrates that they allowed Mut’aa during their times as Kalifa, but was later banned by Omar:

Sahih Muslim: Book: 008 Number: 3248 Ibn Uraij reported: ‘Ati’ reported that jibir b. Abdullah came to perform ‘Umra, and we came to his abode, and the people asked him about different things, and then they made a mention of temporary marriage, whereupon he said: Yes, we had been benefiting ourselves by this temporary marriage during the lifetime of the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) and during the time of Abu Bakr and Umar.

Sahih Muslim: Book: 008 Number: 3249– Jabir b. ‘Abdullah reported: We contracted temporary marriage giving a handful of (tales or flour as a dower during the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and durnig the time of Abu Bakr until ‘Umar forbade it in the case of ‘Amr b. Huraith.

Sahih Muslim: Book: 008 Number: 3250: Abu Nadra reported: While I was in the company of Jabir b. Abdullah, a person came to him and said that Ibn ‘Abbas and Ibn Zubair differed on the two types of Mut’as (Tamattu’ of Hajj 1846 and Tamattu’ with women), whereupon Jabir said: We used to do these two during the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him). Umar then forbade us to do them, and so we did not revert to them.

So now, if I accept that the Prophet(sawaw) banned Mut’aa then Abu Bakr and Omar are kafirs for allowing it to have been done during their reigns; because no man has the right to make anything halal after it has been made haram by Allah(swt) and the Prophet(sawaw).  But if it was made haram by Omar, then he has no right to make anything haram which Allah(swt) and the Prophet(sawaw) has made halal.  So which one is it????? Either way, your hadith contradict each other, and shows proof Abu Bakr and Omar were kafirs (or just Omar) on the subject of Mut’aa.

So in conclusion Mut’aa is not haram and is allowed in Islam, of course when the conditions are meet.  Salaamu alaykum

    Lol, whats wrong? Your mad that Omar your master was directed by that which was in the back of his pants.

    “What a bunch of crap” really? Everything I posted came from Quran and hadith that came from your Sunni Hadith books. Astagfar’Allah is the Quran full of crap?!! I Guess your Bukhari and Muslim are full of crap then like you said.

    Don’t come here like child and run your mouth, pick up a book and read and shut your mouth. Your knowledge is limited to what momma and baba told you, lol, your a joke and a waste of time!!

  5. Zaman Says:

    haha lol nice article mashallah!!
    i just want to point out that muta was made for the SAHABAH’s
    so there for techincally they were directed by their pants!!!!!! haha

    Imam Jalaluddin Suyuti records:

    Narrated Abdulrazaq and Abu Dawoud in (book) Nasikh and narrated ibn Jareer from al-Hakam that he was asked whether the verse on Mut’ah has been abrogated, he said: “No, Ali (RA) said that if it were not Umar forbidding it, no one would commit (the sin) of fornication except the wretched (Shaqi; an utmost wrongdoer).”
    Tafseer Dur al-Manthur, Volume 2 page 140

    All the narrators of this tradition are authentic. Muhammad bin al-Muthna: Imam Dhahabi called him Thiqa.
    Muhammad bin Jafar: Dhahabi says that he was one of the most accurate narrators.
    Shu’ba bin al-Hajaj: According to Imam Dhahabi he is Ameer ul Mumineen in hadith.
    Al-Hakam bin Utebah al-Kindi: According to Imam Dhahabi he is thiqah and ‘sahib sunnah’.

    Narrated ‘Imran bin Husain:
    “The Verse of Mut’a was revealed in Allah’s Book, so we did it at the time of Allah’s Apostle, and nothing was revealed in Quran to make it illegal, nor did the Prophet prohibit it till he died. But a man (who regarded it illegal) expressed what his own mind suggested.”
    Sahih Bukhari [Arabic], Kitab al Tafseer, Tradition 4559

    Any how, our opponents have to answer the following in every case:

    Show us that particular verse of Mutah (Hajj/Nisa) in Quran, which companion Imran bin Hussain was talking about.

    According to Sahabi Imran bin Hussain, the verse has not been abrogated.

    Who was Imran bin Hussain referring to ‘a man (who regarded it illegal) expressed what his own mind suggested.’ ?????????????

    Sunni commentaries of the verse 4:24 prove that it refers to Mutah

    The Wahabi author not only demonstrates his contempt for the Qur’an, but also his disregard for the Sunni Tafsir writers who have all agreed that this verse deals explicitly with Mut’ah and nothing else. We shall now cite 16 books of Ahl’ul Sunnah who testify from Companions it referred to Mut’ah. Sunni Ulama undoubtedly confirm that this verse refers to Mut’ah. As proof we have relied on the following Sunni texts:

    all shia scholars say is muta was allowed and not forbidden but (some)sunni and all wahabi/nasaabi idiots get worked up becuase the man to stop it was umar whom nobody not even the sahaba’s followed !! Which is why imam ali never became a third caliph becuase Even thou he had the majority of votes the people asked him ..we will give u our pledge if u adhere to the quran, the sunna of the prophet and the sunna of the previous to caliphs(abu bakr & umar) where upon imam ali replied yes i will follow the quran and i will follow my father my brother my prophet but i won’t follow the previous to caliphs.!!! read your history and u will know as i know.. i used to be sunni but cannot adhere to ignorant LIES !!… so plz stop and let us unite and become stronger and lets talk as intellectuals but not igonorant or arrogant people!

    “The first to make Mut’ah haraam was Umar”
    Al Awail

    Indeed, the Sahaba deemed Umar to be a liar when it came to this issue. We read in Tafseer Kabeer page 41:

    Ali said: “Had Umar not banned Mut’ah then the only person to fornicate would be a wretched person.”
    Tafseer al-Kabeer, Volume 4 Page 41

    When Umar become Khalifa he issued a sermon to the people: ‘Quran is the same Quran and Rasulullah (s) is the same Rasulullah (s). During the time of Rasulullah there were two types of Mut’ah, Mut’ah of Hajj and Mut’ah of Nisa.’
    Online Musnad Ahmed bin Hanbal, Volume 1 Hadith 347

    In Tafseer Kabeer:

    Umar said: “Two Mut’ah’s existed during Rasulullah’s lifetime and I now prohibit both of them.”
    Tafseer al Kabeer, by Imam Fakhr ul-Radhi, Page 42 & 43

    We read in Kanz al Ummal:

    “Two types of Mut’ah were present during the lifetime of Rasulullah (s), I prohibit them both, its Mut’ah of Nisa and Mut’ah of Hajj”
    Online Kanz al Ummal, Hadith 45715

    We read in Ahkam al Quran:

    ما روي عن عمر أنه قال في خطبته : ” متعتان كانتا على عهد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أنا أنهى عنهما وأعاقب عليهما

    Umar in a sermon said, during the life of Rasulullah, two types of Mut’ah existed, I prohibit them and shall punish those that do it.

    and i can go on and on and on !! the fact is regardless of who supports who it was umar who abolished the act of muta and as imam ali has said

    Tafseer Kabeer page 41:

    Ali said: “Had Umar not banned Mut’ah then the only person to fornicate would be a wretched person.”

    Another thing if u call yourself alhulsunna waljammah and consider muta haram , the meat of donkeys haram and garlic haram then maybe you all sunnis should consider to stop eating garlic !!!! and actually follow the real sunna!!! garlic haha how ridiculous you use hadith to back your claim but at the same time not only does it contradict you it makes you look like fools!!! ma salam sorry if i hurt anyones feeling but alote of sunni talk is based on dogma/propaganda/ false accusation and lies and fabrications and foolish hadiths that contradict themself!! for any topic muta/ caliphate/ taqiah/ i can go on and on but you will never prove you are right !! coz we shia will prover you wrong from your own goddamn books! alhumdulilah so stop calling shia kaffir becuase it is a own individuals haqq to look at his own belief first!! and dont matter what you might want to quote from al kafi becuase all us shia and non shia know it is all weak hadiths and which is the reason why we never call it sahih al kafi !! but even thou there are numerous contradiction in bukhari sunnis still have the audacity to call it sahih shame on you… pls talk with the haqq next time!! ma salam to all..!

  6. Zaman Says:

His uncle,” Abbas, said to him: 0 son of my brother! if you take off the lower garment and place it on the shoulders underneath the stones, it would be better. He (the Holy Prophet) took it off and placed it on his shoulder and fell down unconscious. He (the narrator) said: Never was he seen naked after that day.

(It would be better) if you take off your Izar and put it over your shoulders underneath the stones.” So he took off his Izar and put it over his shoulders, but he fell unconscious and since then he had never been seen naked.

    Salim said, “Umm Kulthum nursed me three times and then fell ill, so that she only nursed me three times. I could not go in to see A’isha because Umm Kulthum did not finish for me the ten times.”

He then went away and said: Peace be upon you! They (the angels) said: May there be peace upon you and the Mercy of Allah, and they made an addition of” Mercy of Allah”. So he who would get into Paradise would get in the form of Adarn, his length being sixty cubits, then the people who followed him continued to diminish in size up to this day.
