I had suspended my website after friends highlighted to me the sensitive nature of the language I had used. I have now removed the sensitive aspects and redrafted my case in the format of questions to the ulema. I did this after an undertaking from the 2013 President of the KSIMC Birmingham that he will send my questions to high ranking ulema and will endure to receive a reply from them which I promised to include on the website.
I have now prepared the questions and forwarded them to the 2013 president and his committee.
Q1: The word Mutah does not appear anywhere in the Quran. This fact is never highlighted by those who claim that mutah is in the Quran. So how can something that it not mentioned in the Quran be claimed to be in the Quran? Q2. Often the argument is that the word ISTIMTATUM in verse 4:24 means Mutah. If this is the case then why did God not use the word Mutah when even Ayatullah Tabatabae in his Al Mizan clearly states that the word mutah was in vogue at that time? Q3. If verse 4:24 is about mutah then at least the mention should have been made of agreeing a time limit as one the main condition of mutah is to agree on a time limit. This is the fundamental difference between mutah and nikah. So why is this fundamental condition missing in the verse if it was about mutah? Q4. It is claimed that the Ahlul Bait said that verse 4:24 is about mutah. If this is true than why did they not practice mutah themselves as to avoid a mustahab act like mutah would be TARK E AWLA? Q5. Is not mutah a compromise on hijab values where a woman can contract to remove hijab and her clothes for a limited time? In otherwords, is not hijab not becoming a rent-able commodity in mutah? Q6. The claim is that two companions threatened the Prophet that they will castrate themselves unless a remedy was given. The Prophet is then claimed to tell them to go and do mutah. Is this not blackmail of the Prophet? Q7. The two companions then went in to the desert to seek sex from a woman they found sitting alone in the desert. Is this not saying that to look for sex around the streets or a desert is permitted? Is this not curb crawling and sex seeking which is what happens aboutside bars and nightclubs? Have you not reduced Islam to this low level by quoting fabricated stories about the Prophet? Q8. If a man has not done mutah but rapes a woman. Then in court he claims that she agreed to do mutah. What defense can the woman have? Is therefore mutah not a loophole for rapists? Q9. Some fatwas allows a young girl of 9 to do mutah provided her father permitted. Is this not child prostitution? Q10. Did any woman like Syeda Fatimah (AS) ever do mutah or did her daughters do it? Q11. Was any Imam born of mutah?
These are only some of the questions on mutah to ask our ulema. I am preparing a list of these question and would like reasons to send me their feedback on these questions before I formally present them
