Infallible Imams disagree on the verse of Quran

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Salam ‘Aleykum,

a. One infallible Imam says:

al-Kafi: vol.5 pg.448

عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ وَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ جَمِيعاً عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي نَجْرَانَ عَنْ عَاصِمِ بْنِ حُمَيْدٍ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ( عليه السلام ) عَنِ الْمُتْعَةِ فَقَالَ نَزَلَتْ فِي الْقُرْآنِ فَمَا اسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ بِهِ مِنْهُنَّ فَآتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً وَ لا جُناحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِيما تَراضَيْتُمْ بِهِ مِنْ بَعْدِ الْفَرِيضَةِ .

Some of our companions, from Sahl bin Ziyad and ‘Ali bin Ibrahim from his father, all of them from ibn abi Najran from ‘Assim bin Humayd, from abu Baseer: I asked abu Ja’far (as) about the Mut’ah, he (as) said: it was revealed in the Quran: “So for whatever you enjoy [of marriage] from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation.”

Majlisi 20/225: “Hasan like Sahih.”

b. The other infallible Imam says:

al-Kafi: vol.5 pg.449

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَمَّنْ ذَكَرَهُ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ إِنَّمَا نَزَلَتْ فَمَا اسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ بِهِ مِنْهُنَّ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى فَآتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً .
‘Ali bin Ibrahim from his father from ibn abi ‘Umayr from abu ‘Abdullah (as) that he said: It has been revealed: “So for whatever you enjoy [of marriage] from them, to an appointed time, give them their due compensation as an obligation.”

Majlisi 20/227: “Hasan.”

Should we go with Abū ‘Abdillāh or with Abū Jafar here? is there “to an appointed time” or isn’t there? Check Suran Nisa Verse 24. 

(Both are narrated from Ibrahim bin Hashim)

Go to a club and pay a prostitute $100 for Muta?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Question: I once went to a nightclub when a whore asked me for $100, I paid her and she told me:”I’ll offer you all my body in Mot’ah (“enjoyment marriage”) according to the amount of money (you have givin). It (the “marriage”) lasted for the period of one day only, is it still considered a legal “Mot’ah” marriage?

Answer: In His praised names, 

If what she said was with the intention of marriage and with your approval then this is regarded “enjoyment marriage” (Mot’ah).

Muta [temporary marriage] is haram: narrated by Ali[ra]


Interesting SAHIH hadiths from Ali (ra) about Mutah in ahle-sunnah books:

أن عليا بلغه أن رجلا لا يرى بالمتعة بأسا – فقال : إنك تائه ، إنه نهى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عنها ، وعن لحوم الحمر الأهلية ، يوم خيبر
الراوي: محمد الباقر بن علي بن الحسين المحدث: الألباني – المصدر: صحيح النسائي – الصفحة أو الرقم: 3365
خلاصة حكم المحدث: صحيح

Muhammad al-Baqir bin Ali bin al-Hussein narrated: It had reached Ali that a man sees no harm in Mutah so Ali told him: “You are lost, the prophet PBUH had forbade the Nikah of Mutah and the meat of the domestic donkey on the day of Khaybar.

source: al-Albani said Sahih in “Sahih al-Nasaee” #3365.

a similar text is found in Sahih Muslim #1407.

أن عليا قال لابن عباس : إنك رجل تائه ، أما علمت أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم نهى عن المتعة وعن لحوم الحمر الأهلية
الراوي: علي بن أبي طالب المحدث: البيهقي – المصدر: السنن الصغير للبيهقي – الصفحة أو الرقم: 3/57
خلاصة حكم المحدث: صحيح

Ali ibn abi Talib narrates that he had told Ibn Abbas: You are a lost man, do you not know that the prophet PBUH had made forbidden the Nikah of Mutah and the meat of the domestic donkey?

source: al-Beihaqi said Sahih in “al-Sunan al-Sagheer” 3/57.

تكلم علي وابن عباس في متعة النساء فقال له علي إنك امرؤ تائه إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم نهى عن متعة النساء في حجة الوداع
الراوي: علي المحدث: الهيثمي – المصدر: مجمع الزوائد – الصفحة أو الرقم: 4/268
خلاصة حكم المحدث: رجاله رجال الصحيح

Ali and ibn Abbas spoke about Mutah so Ali said to him: “You are a lost person, the Prophet PBUH forbade the Mutah of women in the farewell sermon.”

source: al-Haythami said: “Rijal are of the Sahih” in his “Majma’a al-Zawaed”4/268.

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)

YA RAFIDA! WHERE DO YOU UNDERSTAND FROM THE CONTEXT OF THESE VERSES THAT WHAT IS BEING DISCUSSED IS MUTAH MARRIAGE?

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
ابن عمار قال : سألت أبا إبراهيم عليه السلام عن الرجل إذا هو زنى وعنده السرية
والأمة يطأها تحصنه الأمة تكون عنده ؟ فقال : نعم إنما ذلك لان عنده ما يغنيه
عن الزنا ، قلت : فإن كانت عنده أمة زعم أنه لا يطأها ؟ فقال : لا يصدق ، قلت :
فان كانت عنده امرأة متعة تحصنه ؟ قال : لا إنما هو على الشئ الدائم عنده .

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).
