I had suspended my original content 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 this website.
Question about the claim that mutah is in the Quran 1. The Quran does not have the word Mutah anywhere in it. So how can something that is not mentioned in the Quran be claimed to be permitted by it? 2. In Verse 4:24 the word used is ISTIMTATUM which ulema claim means'temporary marriage or mutah. But in verse 46:20 the word ISTIMTATUM is used again where it is warned that those who do it will burn in hell. So how is it possible that in one verse we are told that it is allowed but then in another we are told that those who do it will burn in hell? 3.In Verse 4:25 there are two solutions for a man who is desperate for sex but is unable to do nikkah. He is told that he should marry a maid servant or be patient. The alternative of mutah is not given. So why is it not an alternative if it was allowed by the Quran? 4. In verse 4:24 there is no mention of the main condition of mutah which is a time limit. So if this was a mutah verse then why is the main condition needed to do mutah not mentioned? 5. If we look at the grammar of verse 4:24 then the only way to convert it to a mutah verse is to add the words SEEK TO in order for the verse to read: 'And when you SEEK TO do ISTIMTATUM.' Yet the words SEEK TO do not exist in the verse. Is this then not a form of forgery by adding words and changing meaning of word like ISTIMTATUM? 6. In verse 4:24 the beginning of the verse says: "Forbidden to you are married women, except for your maid servant or slave girls." So if this was a mutah verse then would it mean that you could do mutah with married maid servant or slave girls? Would this not be adultery, exploitation and even prostitution? 7.
