Istiftaat > Legitimacy of temporary marriage
Print out

Q: I know that the Prophet (p.) annulled the “Temporary Marriage”, whereas, many of the Shiite references deem it permissible. What is your opinion concerning this issue? 

A: There is no evidence that the Prophet (p.) annulled it, whereas, Omar’s prohibition shows that “Temporary Marriage” was permissible till his time and it is a confirmation of him that the Prophet (p.) has legitimized it. However, the Shiites sect agrees on its validity.
