The prohibition of the marriage of Mut’ah

Reference: I’laam al-Mu’aasireen bi-Fataawa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen – Page 170

Question: Why has Allaah prohibited the marriage of Mut’ah?

Response: Allaah has prohibited the marriage of mut’ah because the intent behind marriage is the [building of mutual] affection and permanance [of relationship] and the building of a [stable] home and family as He (Ta’aala) says:

{And among His Signs is that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy}, [Soorah ar-Room, Aayah 21]

And because the marriage of mut’ah can lead to the ruin of children who are the product of intercourse in this [type of] marriage, and it can also lead to much mischief and corruption amongst the ummah; Because of this, Allaah (‘Azza wa Jall) has prohibited it. And it is authenticated on the authority of the Prophet (saw) that he said:

«Indeed it (marriage of mut’ah) is prohibited right through to the Day of Judgement», [Transmitted by Muslim, ref.1406]

And this indicates that it is not possible for this prohibition ever to be abrogated because if [we were to entertain that] it was possible to abrogate it, then [we must also entertain that] it is possible the Messenger of Allaah is a liar, and this notion is impossible.

حرمة زواج المتعة

السؤال: لماذا حرم الله زواج المتعة؟

الجواب: حرم الله زواج المتعة لأن المقصود بالزواج الألفة و الاستقرار و بناء البيت و الأسرة كما قال تعالى:

{و من آياته أن خلق لكممن أنفسكم أزواجا لتسكنوا إليها و جعل بينكم مودة و رحمة} سورة الروم، الآية 21

و لأن نكاح المتعة قد يؤدي إلى ضياع الأولاد الذين يأتون بالجماع في هذا النكاح، و لأنه يؤدي أيضاً إلى كثرة الفساد بين الأمة، من أجل هذا حرمه الله (عز و جل) و قد ثبت عن النبي (صلى الله عليه و سلم) أنه قال:

«إنه حرام إلى يوم القيامة» أخرجم مسلم، 1406

و هذا يدل على أنه لا يمكن نسخ هذا التحريم أبداً لأنه لو أمكن نسخه لأمكن أن يكون الرسول (صلى الله عليه و سلم) كاذباً و هذا مستحيل.
