    Shia Muslims Please Define Muttah

    What is Muttah, I have heard that it is a contract marriage between a man and a woman with the intention of divorce. It is done in certain circumstances. I think this is endorsed by the Shia sect of muslims.If any one knows more about this strange practise then please define and clarify. Thankyou.

    I am not shia', and also not a religious person at all, so dont quote me. I talked to a shia friend of mine, long time ago and he confirmed the practice of Muttah in shia faith.There is only one condition, though. Father of the girl has to permit it, without any fear or incentive.

      As we know marriage is a contract between a man and a woman to procreate the children to make them heirs of their property and have them legal rights. It basically has nothing to do with the religion. Now if you read the contract law you will see different types of contracts and you will also see how you have to fulfil your duties as to the contract and all the layout and blah blah blah. Same like any other contract ... contract of marriage has been described by Islam, there are some conditions to enter into this contract and there are some duties you have to fullfil if you are under this contract as being the party (where parties are male and female, with different set of duties). Now Islam only gives male the right to anull this marriage such as divorce. This right can be given to woman where she divorces herself. There is no such concept of divorcing a man by woman under Islamic law of marriage. Or she can go to court to get Khula, where court orders man to divorce his wife. This contract is life time long unless annulled.

      Mutta: It is a type of marriage where you specify the Time of ending the contract i.e marriage for 1 day, 2 days, a year, two years .... etc etc and it is extendable. But the problem with this type of marriage is that woman doesn't need do go for "Iddat" and she can marry someone else the next day her mutta marriage finishes for another mutta or a regular marriage.

      This problem has created lots of legal right for the children born due to the result of mutta marriage because no one was sure ... whose child is it ... particularly where another one day mutta was commenced soon after the one day one she finished.

      Actually to be honest ... heera mandee and Qasaee Galee and such sort of bazaars in Pakistan are living because of this type of marriage. Otherwise everyone will be in the jails ....

      If someone wants to know what is Iddat ... or why/how a woman have to do this iddat .. let me know and I'll explain.

        Before this thread gets too far into the topic . . .would the participants kindly move the discussion to the appropriate forum section under Religion . . .?

        Thank you.

              So most of the prostitutes in Pakistan belong to the Shiah faith?

              Do they need a cleric, two witnesses and a guardian for the temporary-marriage to be valid?

              Does it have to be on paper or is a spoken ceremony sufficient?

              Are you sure no waiting period is required between two Muttahs?

              In a way prostitution would be legal in Shiah countries, it would work quite well, perform a 30 min Muttah, do your business and pay the girl her fee/dowry/mahr...

                      A question to you:
                      So sex/rape/zinah with slaves or war captives is ok?

                      And a piece of free advice:
                      Go to MAJOR Shia religious websites, they will help out and even more....Im sure of it. How absurd to post your thread in General section!

                      Do they need a cleric, two witnesses and a guardian for the temporary-marriage to be valid?

                      Does it have to be on paper or is a spoken ceremony sufficient?

                      So the followers/Sahabas of the time of Rasuulallah pbuh were doing mutah with prostitutes?

                      If you had any brain celles, you would ask yourself how mutah came into practice and when.....? This concept is NOT created by Shias.

                      And another version of "mutah" is practiced in Saudi Arabia...under some other arabic term, so I guess that makes all the arab women practicing this sort of "agreement" also prostitutes?

                      Actually, if you turn it 180 degrees, then you would know Mutah can be of 100 years and with no option of talaq.

                        OK... so let's say you take a girl out on a date.

                        You give her flowers and buy her dinner. (Let's assume it's in a Western country, so her father is aware that his daughter is going to "do it" with the guy), and after that you sleep with that girl?

                        Is that considered Muta?

                          The way you have written the entire proces of marraige contra talaq/divorce is headline item for western countries and anti Muslims orgs. Again, just for your own amusement....to show men have the upper hand in talaq issue, your type really hurt the glorious magnificent message of Islam. There were cases of talaq at time of Rasuulallah pbuh. A woman doesnt need a reason for divorce. If she doesnt want him as hubby, thats all it takes. He needs not to be the culpit of negligance etc.

                          Mutta: It is a type of marriage where you specify the Time of ending the contract i.e marriage for 1 day, 2 days, a year, two years .... etc etc and it is extendable.

                          Im sorry to ask you so bluntly, but did you commit mutah with any from these bazaars...since you are 100 % sure of your verdict? I gather its just the same old tale of here-say? We dont live in a perfect world. Prostitution is going on in every country of the world. Pakistan is not extra ordinary having bazaars.
                          You wish to display that the prostitutes only have Shia clients comming the Bazaar? (Both have to be Shia to do Mutah)
                          I recommend that the buyers of such services should be jailed. That would really end this chapter.

                              well for one, this mutah thing sounds fairer to both parties than the 4 wives thing.
                              Simple ain't easy.
