Imaam Barbahaaree rahimahullaah said:
Temporary marriage of convenience (al-Mut`ah) and marrying a woman merely to make her lawful for her previous husband (al-Istihlaal) are forbidden till the Day of Resurrection.
Shaykh Fawzan’s Explanation:
Temporary marriage of convenience (al-Mut`ah) has a connection to `aqeedah (creed and belief). Because al-Mut`ah is to declare as lawful something which Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, has made forbidden. And what this term al-Mut`ah (temporary marriage of convenience) means; to marry a woman for a certain set period whether it be long or short and after it, then the marriage ends automatically and does not require divorce.
