A woman who is a virgin needs the approval of her guardian for marriage. A woman who is not a virgin need not require approval of her guardian.Muslim First wrote:Br 6'U & H_S_U
Now that both of you believe that Mutah is Halal. Please answer following truthfully.
you are Wali of your young sister. A buddy of hers wants to enter Mutah relation with her for one week.
According to Shia Mutah fique they do not need your Raza.
How do you feel?
Straight answer please!
Yes, from my understanding and research of the Quran, hadith and Sunnah, temporary marriage is valid in Islam and there are proofs aplenty, links of which I have posted. The question you are asking is of a personal nature. What we are discussing here is academic and not personal. Anyway, to answer your question, I have already stated that sex is not always the main reason for a temporary marriage. I have told you about some of the reasons for temporary marriage apart from sex. Also, my sister is mature enough to make her own decisions and she is well-read and has a sound understanding of Islam. I consider temporary marriage to be permitted in Islam, so as a Muslim, I do not find fault with that.
I had apprehensions about temporary marriage when I first read about it. It took me time to understand the reasons why it is permitted. It is not a fairy tale concocted by desperate Shii'tes, as some believe. There are over-whelming proofs regarding its validity. One only needs an open mind to understand and study the proofs without a preconceived bias.
One more thing. It is not as if temporary marriage is a 'compulsory'! It is only one of the many laws in Islam. I am personally not a proponent of polygamy but it is allowed in Islam and so I do not find fault with it. I may not practice polygamy but that does not make me say that it should be banned!!
Sex with what your 'right hand possesses' (female slaves) is valid in Islam. I find the idea to be alien and foreign. But it is permitted. One has to keep one's personal opinions apart when discussing laws of Islam. Every law need not be practiced but the reason why they are valid is because you don't know how many centuries and millennia will pass until the world will end. One does not know what societies will come to form in the future. We are part of the present world and hence see everything in relation to it. Islam is a religion for all times. There is no messenger after Muhammad (saw). Islamic laws are broad and many. They can encompass all kinds of societal systems. Allah is merciful.
