Shi’ism encourages Mutah, a form of prostitution, which is not only permissible in Shia fiqh but is actually considered Mustahabb (highly recommended). In Mutah, a man pays a woman a set amount of money (“Mehr”) after which he is “temporarily married” to her and can engage in sexual relations with her until the agreed upon time limit runs out, which can be as little as one hour. The articles below will examine the immoral institution of Mutah.
“Mutah” translates literally to “pleasure” in Arabic. In the Shia context, Mutah refers to a “temporary marriage.” In the Shia faith, Mutah is actively encouraged and is considered Mustahabb (highly recommended). In reality, Mutah is an abomination, and is nothing less than prostitution.

The popular Shia website, Al-Shia.com, has an entire book on Mutah, titled “Narrations About the Rewards for Doing Mutah.” This book contains authentic Shia Hadith about Mutah. We have copied and pasted them here. These “Hadith” are troublesome, to say the least.

- Legalized Whore-Houses in Iran
The Iranian government recently passed legislation which created legal whore-houses, brothels which would be officially liscensed under law as “Chastity Houses.” Such a name is of course the epitome of Orwellian terminology, and the irony of the name should not be lost to anyone.

According to the Shia Fiqh, a man who has Mutah with a woman is not obligated to provide for her at all. In fact, even if she gets pregnant, the man still does not need to provide! In this article, we examine the religious edicts of Ayatollah Sistani and Ayatollah Lankarani.
- Mutah is Haram
The Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah compeletely rejects Mutah. This article will show how the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) completely forbade it, and how it is pure blasphemy to slander the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) by saying that he would encourage prostitution. This article refutes certain non-truths spread by Shia propagandists who attempt to “prove” Mutah via Sunni sources.

- Shia Hadith: Woman Who Does Mutah Twice Will Become Pure
Here, we shall examine certain Shia Hadith which dictate that a woman will be forgiven her sins if she engages in Mutah twice. It seems that the Shia religion is immoral, and it advocates the exploitation of women via the institution of prostitution. Here, we see the deviant idea that women who give themselves in sexual pleasure to men (the definition of Mutah is literally “pleasure”) will be made pure and forgiven their sins. We wonder: how could fornication and prostitution make anyone pure? Logic tells us that it is nothing but an immoral act.
- Fatwas: Permission of Wali Not Required for Mutah; Shia Guy Can Take Sunni Girl in Mutah
Shi’ism is a truly dangerous religion, and parents should be made aware of this Shia threat to the honor of Sunni girls. May Allah protect our women, as well as the women of the Shia who are also susceptible to being exploited by their Shia men. These Shia men can literally take away girls and have Mutah with them, without even the permission of the girl’s parents. And not only this, but these men believe themselves to be rewarded for this act of Mutah.
- Misyar Marriage is Not Like Mutah
This craze to equate Mutah with Misyar is one of the desperate attempts of the Shia propagandists to conflate simple issues, just like they conflate abrogation with Tahreef. This is to hide their embarassment over their filthy religion which allows women to be rented by the hour.
- Grand Ayatollah Sistani on the Only Difference between Mutah and a “One Night Stand”
Here, Grand Ayatollah Sistani implicitly admits that the only difference between Mutah and the American “one night stand” is nothing but a contract. In all other aspects, there is no difference between the two. Sistani has attempted to equate “having sex with friends” to marriage, completely oblivious to the fact that marriage is not only about having sex but raising a family together, long-term companionship, and a life of commitment. How far removed is marriage from “friends having sex” or Mutah/prostitution!
