Quran 4:24 against mutah : verse under microscope

We have seen many rafida always use weak hadiths to prove that verse 4:24 talks about mutah [temporary marriage]!

& few shia rafida’s use arguments like this:

1. اسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ [ista’mta’tum] in verse 4:24, sounds like muta, so this verse is for muta!

The above shia proof is almost like saying: ‘Saddam sounds like Adam and so he must be Adam! 😉

2. مْتَعْ [‘mta] is the 10th verb form of muta. So verse 4:24 is talking about muta! [like shia allamah tabatabai claimed]

Now see ALLAH said in 3:197:

مَتَـعٌ قَلِيلٌ ثُمَّ مَأْوَاهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ وَبِئْسَ الْمِهَادُ

Mta [those who do mta], then their ultimate abode is Hell; and worst indeed is that place for rest.

Comment: As you can see those who do mta [i.e. 10th verb form of muta] will be in hellfire.

Also ALLAH said in 46:20:

وَيَوْمَ يُعْرَضُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ عَلَى النَّارِ أَذْهَبْتُمْ طَيِّبَـتِكُمْ فِى حَيَـتِكُمُ الدُّنْيَا وَاسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ بِهَا فَالْيَوْمَ تُجْزَوْنَ عَذَابَ الْهُونِ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَسْتَكْبِرُونَ فِى الاٌّرْضِ بِغَيْرِ الْحَقِّ وَبِمَا كُنتُمْ تَفْسُقُونَ

On the Day when those who disbelieve will be exposed to the Fire (it will be said): “You received your good things in the life of the world, and ista’mta’tum therein. Today, you will be recompensed with the torment of extreme humiliation, because you were arrogant upon the earth without a right, and because you used to rebel against Allah’s command.

Comment: Again ALLAH said those who did mta [i.e. 10th verb form of muta] in this world, will be in hellfire there after.

Now what rafida will say here? ALLAH clearly said those who did Mutah, they will be in hellfire.

Now lets examine Quran says 4:19-25:

يَـأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لاَ يَحِلُّ لَكُمْ أَن تَرِثُواْ النِّسَآءَ كَرْهاً وَلاَ تَعْضُلُوهُنَّ لِتَذْهَبُواْ بِبَعْضِ مَآ ءَاتَيْتُمُوهُنَّ إِلاَّ أَن يَأْتِينَ بِفَاحِشَةٍ مُّبَيِّنَةٍ وَعَاشِرُوهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ فَإِن كَرِهْتُمُوهُنَّ فَعَسَى أَن تَكْرَهُواْ شَيْئاً وَيَجْعَلَ اللَّهُ فِيهِ خَيْراً كَثِيراً

O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will, and you should not treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the Mahr you have given them, unless they commit open illegal sexual intercourse. And live with them honourably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings through it a great deal of good. (4:19)

وَإِنْ أَرَدْتُّمُ اسْتِبْدَالَ زَوْجٍ مَّكَانَ زَوْجٍ وَءَاتَيْتُمْ إِحْدَاهُنَّ قِنْطَاراً فَلاَ تَأْخُذُواْ مِنْهُ شَيْئاً أَتَأْخُذُونَهُ بُهْتَـناً وَإِثْماً مُّبِيناً

But if you intend to replace a wife by another and you have given one of them a Cantar (of gold i.e. a great amount) as Mahr, take not the least bit of it back; would you take it wrongfully without a right and (with) a manifest sin? (4:20)

وَكَيْفَ تَأْخُذُونَهُ وَقَدْ أَفْضَى بَعْضُكُمْ إِلَى بَعْضٍ وَأَخَذْنَ مِنكُم مِّيثَـقاً غَلِيظاً

And how could you take it (back) while you have gone in unto each other, and they have taken from you a firm and strong covenant? (4:21)

وَلاَ تَنكِحُواْ مَا نَكَحَ ءَابَاؤُكُمْ مِّنَ النِّسَآءِ إِلاَّ مَا قَدْ سَلَفَ إِنَّهُ كَانَ فَـحِشَةً وَمَقْتاً وَسَآءَ سَبِيلاً

And marry not women whom your fathers married, except what has already passed; indeed it was shameful and Maqtan, and an evil way. (4:22)

حُرِّمَتْ عَلَيْكُمْ أُمَّهَـتُكُمْ وَبَنَـتُكُمْ وَأَخَوَتُكُمْ وَعَمَّـتُكُمْ وَخَـلَـتُكُمْ وَبَنَاتُ الاٌّخِ وَبَنَاتُ الاٍّخْتِ وَأُمَّهَـتُكُمُ الْلاَّتِى أَرْضَعْنَكُمْ وَأَخَوَتُكُم مِّنَ الرَّضَاعَةِ وَأُمَّهَـتُ نِسَآئِكُمْ وَرَبَائِبُكُمُ اللَّـتِى فِى حُجُورِكُمْ مِّن نِّسَآئِكُمُ اللَّـتِى دَخَلْتُمْ بِهِنَّ فَإِن لَّمْ تَكُونُواْ دَخَلْتُمْ بِهِنَّ فَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ وَحَلَـئِلُ أَبْنَآئِكُمُ الَّذِينَ مِنْ أَصْلَـبِكُمْ وَأَن تَجْمَعُواْ بَيْنَ الاٍّخْتَيْنِ إَلاَّ مَا قَدْ سَلَفَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ غَفُوراً رَّحِيماً

Forbidden to you (for marriage) are: your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father’s sisters, your mother’s sisters, your brother’s daughters, your sister’s daughters, your foster mother who gave you suck, your foster milk suckling sisters, your wives’ mothers, your step daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom you have gone in – but there is no sin on you if you have not gone in them (to marry their daughters), – the wives of your sons who (spring) from your own loins, and two sisters in wedlock at the same time, except for what has already passed; verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (4:23)

وَالْمُحْصَنَـتُ مِنَ النِّسَآءِ إِلاَّ مَا مَلَكْتَ أَيْمَـنُكُمْ كِتَـبَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَأُحِلَّ لَكُمْ مَّا وَرَاءَ ذَلِكُمْ أَن تَبْتَغُواْ بِأَمْوَلِكُمْ مُّحْصِنِينَ غَيْرَ مُسَـفِحِينَ فَمَا اسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ بِهِ مِنْهُنَّ فَـَاتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً وَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِيمَا تَرَاضَيْتُمْ بِهِ مِن بَعْدِ الْفَرِيضَةِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيماً حَكِيماً

Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those (captives and slaves) whom your right hands possess. Thus has Allah ordained for you. All others are lawful, provided you seek (them in marriage) with Mahr (bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage) from your property, desiring chastity, not committing illegal sexual intercourse, so with those of whom you have enjoyed sexual relations, give them their Mahr as prescribed; but if after a Mahr is prescribed, you agree mutually (to give more), there is no sin on you. Surely, Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise. (4:24)

وَمَن لَّمْ يَسْتَطِعْ مِنكُمْ طَوْلاً أَن يَنكِحَ الْمُحْصَنَـتِ الْمُؤْمِنَـتِ فَمِنْ مَّا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَـنُكُم مِّن فَتَيَـتِكُمُ الْمُؤْمِنَـتِ وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِإِيمَـنِكُمْ بَعْضُكُمْ مِّن بَعْضٍ فَانكِحُوهُنَّ بِإِذْنِ أَهْلِهِنَّ وَءَاتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ مُحْصَنَـت غَيْرَ مُسَـفِحَـتٍ وَلاَ مُتَّخِذَاتِ أَخْدَانٍ فَإِذَآ أُحْصِنَّ فَإِنْ أَتَيْنَ بِفَـحِشَةٍ فَعَلَيْهِنَّ نِصْفُ مَا عَلَى الْمُحْصَنَـتِ مِنَ الْعَذَابِ ذَلِكَ لِمَنْ خَشِىَ الْعَنَتَ مِنْكُمْ وَأَن تَصْبِرُواْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

And whoever of you have not the means wherewith to wed free, believing women, they may wed believing girls from among those (captives and slaves) whom your right hands possess, and Allah has full knowledge about your Faith, you are one from another. Wed them with the permission of their own folk (guardians, Auliya’ or masters) and give them their Mahr according to what is reasonable; they (the above said captive and slave-girls) should be chaste, not adulterous, nor taking boy-friends. And after they have been taken in wedlock, if they commit illegal sexual intercourse, their punishment is half that for free (unmarried) women. This is for him among you who is afraid of being harmed in his religion or in his body; but it is better for you that you practise self-restraint, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (4:25)


This is talking about proper Sharia marriage not Mutah marriage.

Especially since he says that those who cannot marry and pay the dowry They should seek Those whom their right hand posses in marriage ALTHOUGH THIS IS HARAM because his children will be slaves for her master but Allah has permitted it in this extreme case in which Man cannot pay the dowry.

As for the temporary marriage or Mutah marriage we all know that you are able to do it with by paying the girl a small amount even a handful of rice but Allah never said to do this, the alternative for proper Sharia marriage is not Mutah marriage it is marriage from the captives.

Also the rules are very different, in Mutah temporary marriage you do not need permission from her Wali according to all Shia scholars whereas you read above “Wed them with the permission of their own folk (guardians, Auliya’ or masters) and give them their Mahr according to what is reasonable”, So if you can’t pay the free woman her dowry for marriage you marry the captive in this extreme case but you pay her a lower reasonable dowry but it is also better if you are patient until Allah provides you like in verse 25: “this is for one among you who fears falling into adultery; and to practice patience is better for you”.

Another Important point in Quranic verse 4:24:

وَالْمُحْصَنَـتُ مِنَ النِّسَآءِ إِلاَّ مَا مَلَكْتَ أَيْمَـنُكُمْ كِتَـبَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَأُحِلَّ لَكُمْ مَّا وَرَاءَ ذَلِكُمْ أَن تَبْتَغُواْ بِأَمْوَلِكُمْ مُّحْصِنِينَ غَيْرَ مُسَـفِحِينَ فَمَا اسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ بِهِ مِنْهُنَّ فَـَاتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً وَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِيمَا تَرَاضَيْتُمْ بِهِ مِن بَعْدِ الْفَرِيضَةِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيماً حَكِيماً

is the word Chastity, the Arabic word for this is “MuhSinin” so when you marry this girl and make the Nikah you must become a “MuhSan” which means “Proper Chaste married” and in Shiism The Mutah marriage does not provide This “IhSan” for the couple as the Shia Imams and scholars say:

ونكاح المتعة لا يحصن بالأثر الصحيح عن أئمة آل محمد عليهم السلام .
وهو يجري في ظاهر الحال مجرى نكاح الغائب عن زوجته ، لأنه نكاح مشترط
بأيام معلومات وأوقات محدودات ، وليس هو على الدوام ، فربما تخلل الأيام فيه
والأوقات المشترطة من الزمان ما يمنع صاحبه من الاستغناء به عما سواه ، كما
تمنع الغيبة صاحبها من الاستغناء ، فيخرج بذلك عن الإحصان . والله
أعلم .

المقنعة – الشيخ المفيد – ص 776

Giant Shia scholar al-MUFID says: “And the Nikah of Mutah does not make IhSan according to the SAHIH Hadiths from the Imams PBUT…because it is conditioned by a known number of days and limited specified times…”
source: Al Muqni’ah by al Mufid p776.

ونكاح المتعة عندنا لا يحصن على أصح الأقوال لأنه غير دائم ومعلق بأوقات محدودات ،
وفرقوا بين الغيبة والحيض ، لأن الحيض لا يمتد وربما امتدت الغيبة

الانتصار – الشريف المرتضى – ص 521

Shia Giant scholar al Sharif al Murtada says: “And the Nikah of Mutah in our Madhab does not make IhSan according to the most correct views because it does not last and is limited by specified time…

source: Al Intisar by al Sharif al Murtada p521.

” كانت عبارة السيد المرتضى قدس سره مشعرة بوجود القول
بالخلاف فإنه بعد أن ذكر إن من متفردات الإمامية القول بأن الاحصان
الموجب في الزاني الرجم هو أن يكون له زوجة أو ملك يمين يتمكن من وطيها
متى شاء قال :ونكاح المتعة عندنا لا يحصن على أصح الأقوال لأنه غير دائم ومعلق
بأوقات محدودات . انتهى كلامه رفع مقامه ”

در المنضود – السيد الكابياكاني – ج 1 – ص 74

Sayyed al Kabayakani agrees with al Murtada above and quotes him in his book “Al Durr al Mandoud” 1/74.

ونكاح المتعة لا يحصن بالأثر الصحيح عن أئمة آل محمد ع وهو يجري في ظاهر الحال

.الينابيع الفقهية – علي أصغر مرواريد – ج 23 – ص 24

Shia scholar Ali Asghar says: “Nikah of Mutah does not make TahSin according to the Sahih narrations from the Imams of Alu Muhammad PBUT…”

source: Al Yanabi’i al Fiqhiyah 23/24.

– أبو علي الأشعري ، عن محمد بن عبد الجبار ، عن صفوان ، عن إسحاق بن عمار
قال : سألت أبا إبراهيم عليه السلام عن رجل إذا هو زنى وعنده السرية والأمة يطأها تحصنها
الأمة وتكون عنده ؟ فقال : نعم إنما ذلك لان عنده ما يغنيه عن الزنى ، قلت : فان كانت
عنده أمة زعم أنه لا يطأها فقال : لا يصدق ، قلت : فإن كانت عنده امرأة متعة أتحصنه ؟ قال :
لا إنما هو على الشئ الدائم عنده .

الكافي – الشيخ الكليني – ج 7 – ص 178

( 763 ) 1 – أبو علي الأشعري عن محمد بن عبد الجبار عن صفوان بن يحيى عن إسحاق

الاستبصار – الشيخ الطوسي – ج 4 – ص 204

In the Hadith by Imam Abu Ibrahim PBUH they ask him “If a Man has a woman of Mutah does it make him MuhSan? Imam replied: No, that is only for women who stay with him permanently.

source: Al Istibsar by al TUSI 4/204, Al Kafi by al Kulayni 7/178.

Grading of this hadith: Shia Scholar of Hadith and author of Bihar al Anwar Al Majlisi says that this Hadith has a reliable chain of narrators in his book “Mira’at al Uqool” 23/269, He comments on another similar narration on page 23/270 and also says it has a Reliable chain of narrators.

Let me quote other hadiths as well from shia source which have same claim from shia imams:

باب ما يحصن وما لا يحصن وما [لا] يوجب الرجم على المحصن

688، 13 – 1 أبوعلي الاشعري، عن محمد بن عبدالجبار، عن صفوان، عن إسحاق بن عمار قال: سألت أبا إبراهيم عليه السلام عن رجل إذا هو زنى وعنده السرية والامة يطأها تحصنها الامة وتكون عنده؟ فقال: نعم إنما ذلك لان عنده ما يغنيه عن الزنى، قلت: فان كانت عنده أمة زعم أنه لا يطأها فقال: لا يصدق، قلت: فإن كانت عنده امرأه متعة أتحصنه؟ قال: لا إنما هو على الشئ الدائم عنده.

9 68، 13 – 2 علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن هشام، وحفص بن البختري عمن ذكره، عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام في الرجل يتزوج المتعة أتحصنه؟ قال: لا إنما ذاك على الشئ الدائم عنده.

1 69، 13 – 4 علي بن إبراهيم، عن محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد، عن يونس، عن حريز قال: سألت أبا عبدالله عليه السلام عن المحصن قال: فقال: الذي يزني وعندة ما يغنيه.

3 69، 13 – 6 علي، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن يونس، عن إسحاق بن عمار، قال: قلت لابي إبراهيم عليه السلام: الرجل تكون له الجارية أتحصنه؟ قال: فقال: نعم إنما هو على وجه الاستغناء قال: قلت: والمرأة المتعة؟ قال: فقال: لا إنما ذلك على الشي الدائم، قال: قلت: فإن زعم أنه لم يكن يطأها، قال: فقال: لا يصدق وإنما يوجب ذلك عليه لانه يملكها.

Other Than Permission from her Wali in Islamic marriage you can only marry Four whereas in Twelver Shia so called Mutah “marriage” you get an infinite number of “wives” as opposed to this quranic verse 4:3:

وَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ أَلاَّ تُقْسِطُواْ فِى الْيَتَـمَى فَانكِحُواْ مَا طَابَ لَكُمْ مِّنَ النِّسَآءِ مَثْنَى وَثُلَـثَ وَرُبَاعَ فَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ أَلاَّ تَعْدِلُواْ فَوَحِدَةً أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَـنُكُمْ ذلِكَ أَدْنَى أَلاَّ تَعُولُواْ

If you fear you cannot be equitable to orphan girls (in your charge, or misuse their persons), then marry women who are lawful for you, two, three, or four; but if you fear you cannot treat so many with equity, marry only one, or a maid or captive. This is better than being iniquitous. (4:3)

Note: also here he says marry 2,3,4 or only one and this is in contradiction to Mutah Marriage in which you can marry an infinite number.. also He gives you the alternative to normal marriage and that’s marrying the captives in extreme cases where you cannot afford to marry the free woman although this is HARAM, He didn’t say “Or Go do Mutah”.

Mutah marriage or Temporary marriage back then Allah knows best what where its rules, It was allowed for three days only in the year of Autas 8th A.H and it was allowed only with non-Muslim women and then banned.

Also in the Quran 24:32-33:

وَأَنْكِحُواْ الأَيَـمَى مِنْكُمْ وَالصَّـلِحِينَ مِنْ عِبَادِكُمْ وَإِمائِكُمْ إِن يَكُونُواْ فُقَرَآءَ يُغْنِهِمُ اللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ

Marry those among you who are single, or the virtuous ones among yourselves, male or female: if they are in poverty, Allah will give them means out of His grace: for Allah encompasseth all, and he knoweth all things. (24:32)

وَلْيَسْتَعْفِفِ الَّذِينَ لاَ يَجِدُونَ نِكَاحاً حَتَّى يُغْنِيَهُمُ اللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ وَالَّذِينَ يَبْتَغُونَ الْكِتَـبَ مِمَّا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَـنُكُمْ فَكَـتِبُوهُمْ إِنْ عَلِمُتُمْ فِيهِمْ خَيْراً وَءَاتُوهُمْ مِّن مَّالِ اللَّهِ الَّذِى ءَاتَـكُمْ وَلاَ تُكْرِهُواْ فَتَيَـتِكُمْ عَلَى الْبِغَآءِ إِنْ أَرَدْنَ تَحَصُّناً لِّتَبْتَغُواْ عَرَضَ الْحَيَوةِ الدُّنْيَا وَمَن يُكْرِههُنَّ فِإِنَّ اللَّهِ مِن بَعْدِ إِكْرَاهِهِنَّ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah gives them means out of His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing (to enable them to earn their freedom for a certain sum), give them such a deed if ye know any good in them: yea, give them something yourselves out of the means which Allah has given to you. But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is Allah, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them), (24:33)

Note: Here the same thing, we find that in the case where a Man is not capable of getting married he should not go and practice Adultery but he should remain chaste and patient until Allah provides him with a Job or a House or whatever in order that he may marry. NOTICE, Allah didn’t say “If you can’t get married then go do Mutah for a cheap price” He said remain chaste.

The Twelver Shia rafida claim that Mutah is for those who can’t get married and cannot provide a house and money nor do they have a job that they go do Mutah instead… as you can see this does not go according to what Allah says in his book, he never even mentioned it and his Prophet PBUH forbade it more than once and we obey.

Note: Mutah is only found within the Twelver Shia sect, other Shias like Zaidiyah and Ismailiyah and Druze ect.. they don’t believe in Mutah.

As for the Shahadatayn: Quran 6:19:

وَهُوَ الْقَاهِرُ فَوْقَ عِبَادِهِ وَهُوَ الْحَكِيمُ الْخَبِيرُ – قُلْ أَىُّ شَىْءٍ أَكْبَرُ شَهَـدةً قُلِ اللَّهِ شَهِيدٌ بِيْنِى وَبَيْنَكُمْ وَأُوحِىَ إِلَىَّ هَـذَا الْقُرْءَانُ لاٌّنذِرَكُمْ بِهِ وَمَن بَلَغَ أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَشْهَدُونَ أَنَّ مَعَ اللَّهِ ءَالِهَةً أُخْرَى قُل لاَّ أَشْهَدُ قُلْ إِنَّمَا هُوَ إِلَـهٌ وَحِدٌ وَإِنَّنِى بَرِىءٌ مِّمَّا تُشْرِكُونَ

Say (O Muhammad SAW): “What thing is the most great in witness(Shahadah)?” Say: “Allah (the Most Great!) is Witness between me and you; this Quran has been revealed to me that I may therewith warn you and whomsoever it may reach. Can you verily bear witness(Tashhadun) that besides Allah there are other aliha (gods)?” Say “I bear no (such) witness(Ashhadu)!” Say: “But in truth He (Allah) is the only one Ilah (God). And truly I am innocent of what you join in worship with Him.” (6:19)

So here you testify(Shahadah) that Allah is the only one true God.

and you can only go to heaven if you are a believer and to be a believer you must believe in Allah and his messenger.

Quran 24:62 says:

إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ

The true believers are only those, who believe in (the Oneness of) Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) (24:62)

More importantly this is what the prophet PBUH used to ask of the Arabs when they join Islam, That they believe only in one God that is Allah and not associate any partners(Humans, Statues, Planets…) with him, Then because the Tradition and example of the Prophet PBUH is a very important part of this religion He told them to testify that He was the messenger whom they must obey (Not other lying prophets like Tulayha al Asadi or Musaylama or Al Aswad al ‘Ansi and their likes).

  1. abdul ali

    hey frst of all write the correct translation of the ayat and 2 nd if u dont know about any thng just shut your mouth it is better …

  2. ali

    What eva said is nonsense.Why havent you people quoted your sahih hadith where its clear cut mentioned more than one place that during the times of Rsaulaalh(s) and Abu Bakr muta was permitted.However Umar banned it .We need to understand take that whatever permission granted to us shouldnt be misused.Muta is not to advocate adultry and produce babies without parents.Even the babies resulted for from Muta have the share of inheritance same as a permanent marriage child would have.However muta cannot be done with virgins unless with permission from parent,Moreover Muta is a facility provided when circumsatcaes are such where a person may either masturbate,commit fornication or may rape if had opportunity.Human phycology may have disastorous effects if not controlled.So please if In Iran there are 250000 babaies found due to Muta that doesnt mean their right.They are wrong because they misused the facility provided.Much more

  3. Adeel Ahmad

    for abdul ali and ali

    And those who guard their chastity, except with their wives and their slave girls – for they are not to be blamed. But those who trespass beyond this are the ones who are transgressors. (70: 29 – 31)

    and brother ali ALLAH(SWT) know the psychology of the humans more than anyone that is why HE(SWT) has described some limits for humans to judge them, whoever cross those limits are transgressors and who keep those limits are the one on right path.
    according to your point ALLAH(SWT) should have legalized the drinking of wine because everybody want to drink it and it will also be provided in JANNAT. so by legalizing it ALLAH(SWT) would have made it easy for humans to practice their Islam.

  4. Abu Ahmad

    Jazaakum Allaahu khayran

  5. Amjad Mehmood Awanite

    Very well explained. Really helpful for me to understand another Shiaisms loophole. Mut’ah was an Arab tradition it has nothing to do with Islam and Shariyah. We Muslims dont except Shias as believers, Mu’tah is a small thing their aqaids about great companions and Quran differ alot. They commit shirk like Pre Islamic Quraysh, They worship Personalities along with Allah just like Pre Islamic Quraysh, They’ve misinterpretted several Ahadees and ayahs which a common man can understand. Hazrat Ali R.A was a companion of Prophet Muhammad SAW and was the Husband of Fatimah R.A, Just like Uthman R.A who had Prophets 2 daughters. He was a muslim a khalifa and a leader. But nothing more than that. he wasnt a Prophet..But SHias litreally as HELP from Ali. Even though they recite in Surah Fateha(The opening) that “We worship You and seek help from You only”. Shiaism is just like Budhism, chirstanity and jewism. Their Jesus is Ali. Being believer of ALLAH , MUHAMMAD, HOLY BOOKS, ANGELS and DAY OF JUDGEMENT and everything that is from QURAN and Hadees …. for me religion is not worshiping personalities blaming one against and other dividing them by our own little brains. Thanks to Abdullah ibn e Saba who invented their texts and their aqeedahs with the help of his jewish brothers…..Only Ya Allah Help! everything else is SHIRK,

    • alialiali

      Mehmood…if we are like other religions than leave us in peace. Why are all of you so much worried about Shias and their believes all the time. For every act of shia you have some lame objection and itch. If we shia are destined to Hell (according to your thinking) you should be happy. Why you worry and bother yourself by wasting your time in writing so much you cannot convince. leave everything upon yaum al qiama things will be decided. You are MaShaAllah all great Muslims (wahabi, Sunna wal Jamaat, Deobandi…etc…etc…) with perfect deeds and already 100% sure that you are going to Heaven than leave us live the way we want.

    3. >>>>>>>>>>>>> depend on your after read the Quran and Hadith

    I think if you believe on Quran so you will easily understand ok.

    You can not say about Mutah is not allow.
    you can only say it was advise for few time and in some place to avoid.

    by not band. ok

    • Arslan

      You said: “We Shia never wrote wrong about your religious”.
      Shia or Sunni are not religions. These are sects created by people, Quran says: Hold the rope of Allah strongly, and donot divide”. There is not a concept of Shia, Sunni, or Wahabi, the religion is only Islam. Stop dividing Islam into sects rather say ur self a Muslim.

  8. Khan sardar

    If muta is حلال in islam, according to shia belive, then can any shia provide me his, sister for muta ?

    • azee khan

      Mr. khan Sardar,
      Although I am not a shia, but please mind your language, i guess you dont have any sister or maybe if you have then keep in mind that someone will definitely ask your sister out on a date and she will never tell you.

      So please mind your language

    If muta is allowed in islam, so can someone tick the names of following, على , حسين ‘ حسن ‘ زين العابدين ‘ باقر ‘ رضا ‘ كاظم ‘ تقى ‘ نقى ‘ مهدى ‘ i am not writing the names of women, for respect, but everybody knows that, please dont angry, i respect all of them, but this is a question,

  10. Okasha Hafeez

    v nice Explanation its much helpfull… and dear shias why you dont learn full Quran and ahadis as mension above,,,, plz read full before any comment… As Ali brother says I want to add that Its banned by Prophet as mension in Ahadis:
    Narrated Ali (رضّى الله عنه):

    “Allah’s Messenger forbade the temporary marriage in the year of Khaybar.” [Sahih Muslim and Sahih Bukhari]

    Narrated Ali (رضّى الله عنه):

    “At the battle of Khaybar, the Prophet forbade the temporary marriage (i.e Mutah) of women, and the eating of the flesh of domestic asses.” [Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Ahmad, An-Nasa’i, At-Termidhi and Ibn Majah have all collected it]

    It was narrated from Ali (رضّى الله عنه) that:

    The Messenger of Allah forbade Mutah marriage and the meat of domestic donkeys at the time of Khaybar. According to another report, he forbade Mutah marriage at the time of Khaybar and he forbade the meat of tame donkeys. [Narrated by Bukhari, 3979; Muslim, 1407.]
    So here Hazrat Ali R.a Says that Prophet S.w.w banned it then why you claim hazrat umer R.A only?

  11. Farooq ahmad

    Mutta was started by Daughter of Abu Bakar Issma bin Abu Bakar. She did Mutta with Zaid and told same to her son.

  12. Brothers I am new to this conversation but please provide me the authenticity of these hadiths as well…….

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 139:

    Narrated Abdullah: We used to participate in the holy wars carried on by the Prophet and we had no women (wives) with us. So we said (to the Prophet). “Shall we castrate ourselves?” But the Prophet forbade us to do that and thenceforth he allowed us to marry a woman (temporarily) by giving her even a garment, and then he recited: “O you who believe! Do not make unlawful the good things which Allah has made lawful for you.”

    – Mut’ah Banned by Umar

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 43:

    Narrated ‘Imran bin Husain: The Verse of muta was revealed in Allah’s Book, so we performed it with Allah’s Apostle, and nothing was revealed in Qur’an to make it illegal, nor did the Prophet prohibit it till he died. But the man (omar) just expressed what his own mind suggested

    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 (muta of Hajj and muta of women), whereupon Jabir said: We used to do these two during the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger pbuh Umar then forbade us to do them, and so we did not revert to them.

    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 pbuh and during the time of Abi 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 pbuh and durnig the time of Abu Bakr until ‘Umar forbade it in the case of ‘Amr b. Huraith.

    Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3261:

    ‘Urwa b. Zabair reported that ‘Abdullah b. Zubair stood up (and delivered an address) in Mecca saying: Allah has made blind the hearts of some people as He has deprived them of eyesight that they give religious verdict in favor of temporary marriage, while he was alluding to a person (Ibn ‘Abbas). Ibn Abbas called him and said: You are an uncouth person, devoid of sense. By my life, Mut’a was practised during the lifetime of the leader of the pious (he meant Allah’s Messenger, pbuh), and Ibn Zubair said to him: just do it yourselves, and by Allah, if you do that I will stone you with your stones. Ibn Shihab said. Khalid b. Muhajir b. Saifullah informed me: While I was sitting in the company of a person, a person came to him and he asked for a religious verdict about Mut’a and he permitted him to do it.

    – Mut’ah During Life of Rasulullah

    Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3252:

    Sabra Juhanni reported: Allah’s Messenger pbuh permitted temporary marriage for us. So I and another person went out and saw a woman of Bana ‘Amir, who was like a young long-necked she-camel. We presented ourselves to her (for contracting temporary marriage), whereupon she said: What dower would you give me? I said: My cloak. And my companion also said: My cloak. And the cloak of-my companion was superior to my cloak, but I was younger than he. So when she looked at the cloak of my companion she liked it, and when she cast a glance at me I looked more attractive to her. She then said: Well, you and your cloak are sufficient for me. I remained with her for three nights, and then Allah’s Messenger pbuh said: He who has any such woman with whom he had contracted temporary marriage, he should let her off.

    • These have been already answered on this blog and other websites. Mutah marriage was once allowed before it was declared forbidden by the Messenger of Allah (saw). This is the basic thing that one should know before discussing the topic. This is even proven from Shia books.

      Learn about Mutah here: http://www.twelvershia.net/2015/02/12/prohibition-mutah-marriages/

      And Just to correct you: The second Hadith you quoted is talking about the Hajj At-Tamattu not Mutah Marriage.

      From: Tafsir ibn Kathir online:

      Allah said:

      ﴿فَإِذَآ أَمِنتُمْ فَمَن تَمَتَّعَ بِالْعُمْرَةِ إِلَى الْحَجِّ فَمَا اسْتَيْسَرَ مِنَ الْهَدْىِ﴾

      (Then if you are in safety and whosoever performs the `Umrah (in the months of Hajj), before (performing) the Hajj, he must slaughter a Hady such as he can afford,)

      That is, when you are able to complete the rites, so whoever among you connects his `Umrah with Hajj having the same Ihram for both, or, first assuming Ihram for `Umrah, and then assuming Ihram for Hajj when finished the `Umrah, this is the more specific type of Tamattu` which is well-known among the discussion of the scholars whereas in general there are two types of Tamattu`, as the authentic Hadiths prove, since among the narrators are those who said, “Allah’s Messenger performed Tamattu`, and others who said, “Qarin” but there is no difference between them over the Hady.

      So Allah said,

      ﴿فَإِذَآ أَمِنتُمْ فَمَن تَمَتَّعَ بِالْعُمْرَةِ إِلَى الْحَجِّ فَمَا اسْتَيْسَرَ مِنَ الْهَدْىِ﴾

      (Then if you are in safety and whosoever performs the `Umrah (in the months of Hajj), before (performing) the Hajj (i.e., Hajj At-Tamattu` and Al-Qiran), he must slaughter a Hady such as he can afford,) means let him sacrifice whatever Hady is available to him, the least of which is a sheep. One is also allowed to sacrifice a cow because the Prophet slaughtered cows on behalf of his wives. Al-Awza`i reported that Abu Hurayrah narrated that Allah’s Messenger slaughtered cows on behalf of his wives when they were performing Tamattu`. This was reported by Abu Bakr bin Marduwyah.

      This last Hadith proves that Tamattu` is legislated. It is reported in the Two Sahihs that `Imran bin Husayn said, “We performed Hajj At-Tamattu` in the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger and then the Qur’an was revealed (regarding Hajj At-Tamattu`). Nothing was revealed to forbid it, nor did he (the Prophet ) forbid it until he died. And somebody said what he wished (regarding Hajj At-Tamattu`) according to his own opinion.” Al-Bukhari said that `Imran was talking about `Umar. It is reported in an authentic narration that `Umar used to discourage the people from performing Tamattu`. He used to say, “If we refer to Allah’s Book, we should complete it,” meaning:

      ﴿فَمَن تَمَتَّعَ بِالْعُمْرَةِ إِلَى الْحَجِّ فَمَا اسْتَيْسَرَ مِنَ الْهَدْىِ﴾

      (…whosoever performs the `Umrah (in the months of Hajj), before (performing) the Hajj, he must slaughter a Hady such as he can afford,)

      However `Umar did not say that Tamattu` is unlawful. He only prevented them so that the people would increase their trips to the House for Hajj (during the months of Hajj) and `Umrah (throughout the year), as he himself has stated. – End Quote (Tafsir Ibn Kathir http://www.qtafsir.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=225 )

    this article os so off the mark. One such case it states that Mutah was allowed in the year 8 A.H…then it waa banned. later it says Allah never mentioned it. If the Prophet peace and blessings upon him allowed it Allah must have mentioned it. Who banned it, not the Prophet. If The Prophets are the only ones to recieve laws ans guidelines only they can abolosih them by order od Allah.
