|Question ID 343 - Marriage
Salamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah,
I am Shabirullah a married master's student who will spend his last semester in Japan until September 2013.
Long distance to Afghanistan and lots of studies are obstacles to go home regularly, so I feel too uncomfortable in terms of life partner and mental health.
I want to marry someone under Mut-aa (sigha) condition, so what is your kind advice under Jafari Mazhab for me?
Looking for your kind response.
|Answer:- Mut'a marriage is allowed in Islam according to Quran and authentic
In your case, if you fear falling in sin being away from your wife, you
must be sure that you remain safe from falling in sin. Mut'a marriage is
allowed with a woman who must be a Muslim or from People of Book (Ahl al
Kitab). She should not be currently married or passing Iddah. Both of you
should agree to have this temporary marriage between you and agree on the
period of time and the Mahr, then she or any one on her behalf should say
to you the Seegha of Mut'a.
