concept of muta and nakka

Reader comment on item: Misyar – Temporary Marriage in Sunni Islam
in response to reader comment: we should clean the nonsense

Submitted by khawar (Pakistan), Nov 3, 2009 at 07:32

I m a law student belongs to a sunni family. I may be wrong in my description but oneof my shiite friend told me that muta is a legal contract between two persons male and female. by making a contract of muta they are legally allowed for sexual activeties, for a specific time, described in a muta contract.

They says this is simillarly like 'nikka' because in nikka we only make an oral promis. that i have accepted this women as my wife.

they may be true or false in there opinion....... do tell me if someone have a knowledge about its legality

Submitting....
