Answer:

 

Muta marriage

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: is the status of muttha in islam

Mutah was a term used for a form of temporary marriage prevalent in the Days of Ignorance before Islam, where a man would temporarily contract a woman for a fixed period, fulfil his lust with her, and divorce her at the end of the agreed period without any responsibility towards the woman whatsoever. This mutually agreed period would be at an agreed and negotiated price between the man and the woman, for a fixed period of time which could be for a couple of hours, or days, or weeks, etc. as negotiated.

 

The society in the Days of Ignorance before Islam had tried to give a legal veil to the abomination of zina and prostitution by various means, and the mutah was one of such veils! Islam removed all such veils from the abomination of zina and declared that the only legal way for a man and woman to enjoy conjugal relationships was for the man and woman to be legally wedded to each other in the nikaah contract, where the man would shoulder the responsibility of a proper marriage. One should note here that it was not Islam who started or initiated this evil concept of muta, but it was a system prevailent in the days of ignorance before Islam. Allah and His Messenger (saws) completely and absolutely abolished and forbade this evil concept of muta for those who sincerely believed in Allah and the Last Day.

 

Your Question: is it prohibited in islam .. if it is tell me how ,, answer me by ... ayaat ans ahadit..

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 23 Surah Muminoon verses 1-7:

1 The Believers must (eventually) win through

2 Those who humble themselves in their prayers;

3 Who avoid vain talk;


4 Who are active in deeds of charity;

5 Who abstain from sex

6 Except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess; for (in their case) they are free from blame

7 But those whose desires exceed those limits are transgressors

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 5.527 Narrated by Ali bin Abi Talib

On the day of Khaibar, Allah's Messenger (saws) forbade the Mut'a (i.e. temporary marriage), and the eating of donkey-meat.

 

Beloved brother in Islam, if any fair-minded person just looks at the system of mutah, he would conclude that it is nothing but a manifestation of the abomination of prostitution and nothing else. Which righteous parent or guardian would allow his daughter or sister to temporarily have sex with a man in exchange for a material reward?

 

Prostitution is described as an act where a woman temporarily engages in sexual activity with a man in return for a negotiated fee. If one asks oneself what is the difference between prostitution and mutah, one would find it extremely difficult to differentiate the two terms!

 

The concept of muta was and is a shallow attempt of what we recognize today as prostitution; and absolutely all forms of zina and prostitution are forbidden in the deen of Truth called Al-Islam. The believers who sincerely fear Allah and the Last Day must recognize and abstain from this and all forms of indecency and fahisha, and fulfill their needs only through the legal channel and sacred concept of Islamic nikaah.

 

Allah is our witness, anyone who performs muta will be guilty of the grave sin and evil abomination of zina in the sight of Allah Subhanah on the Inevitable Day of Resurrection!

 

Islam recognized the evils of the temporary mutah contract, and the Messenger of Allah (saws) declared the mutah absolutely haraam for the believers.

 

Your Question: secondly i want to know why mattha was ligally announced in islam

Islam did not start, nor propagate, nor encourage the concept of muta marriage; this concept of temporary marriage was already prevalent in the days of ignorance before the advent of Islam. In the 6th year after migration or Hijrah on the day of the Battle of Khaybar, the Messenger of Allah (saws) specifically forbade and declared mutah marriage as absolutely haraam for the believers.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 5.527 Narrated by Ali bin Abi Talib

On the day of Khaibar, Allah's Messenger (saws) forbade the Mut'a (i.e. temporary marriage), and the eating of donkey-meat.

 

Your Question: and atthe end some sect advocaet that ,, mattha is work as a junction to rejoing the divorced marrage....

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 36: It does not behove a believing man and a believing woman that when Allah and His Messenger have given their decision in a matter, they should exercise an option in that matter of theirs. For whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, has indeed strayed into manifest error.

No sect in Islam, no scholar, no priest, no jurist, absolutely no one has any authority to advocate something as legal in Islam after the Messenger of Allah (saws) himself has declared it haraam! Any who dares to do so has indeed strayed into manifest error.

 

Your Statement: and they aslo sain hazraat abu baker daughter also do this

There is absolutely no evidence in the authentic and established history of the companions of the Noble Prophet (saws) that the noble and chaste daughters of a companion of the stature and rank of Hadrat Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (r.a.) ever engaged in the evil concept of mutah! It is absolutely inconceivable that the noble and chaste daughters of a companion who studied and practiced his deen in the university of the Prophet (saws) would even approach something which had been specifically declared as haraam and forbidden by the Messenger of Allah (saws)!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 24 Surah Noor verse 4: And those who launch a charge against chaste women and produce not four witnesses (to support their allegation) flog them with eighty stripes: and reject their evidence ever after: for such men are wicked transgressors

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.840 Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Prophet (saws) said, "Avoid the seven great destructive sins." They (the people) asked, "O Allah's Messenger (saws)! What are they?" He (saws) said, "To join partners in worship with Allah; to practice sorcery; to kill the life which Allah has forbidden except for a just cause (according to Islamic law); to eat up usury (Riba), to eat up the property of an orphan; to give one's back to the enemy and fleeing from the battlefield at the time of fighting, and to accuse chaste women who never even think of anything touching chastity and are good believers."

 

Whosoever accuses chaste women are wicked transgressors in the Sight of the Lord, and Allah is our witness brother, such wicked transgressors will be held severely accountable for their false accusation and slander in the Just and Supreme Court of the Lord Most High on an Inevitable and Tumultuous Day.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), he can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), he can be assured of being led astray.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
