Sunni “Islamic” Marriages; Legalized Adultery, Fornication & Prostitution

Praise be to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ), for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ) forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

This article is a follow up on the topic of The Oppression Of Women In (Sunni) “Islam”, with focus on the proper concept of nikah (eng. marriage) in Islam.

Legal islamic marriage(s)

There are only two legal marriages according to Islamic sunnah (Prophetic traditions) & the Holy Quran; nikah (eng. marriage) and nikah mutah (eng. temporary marriage).

nikah mutah (eng. temporary marriage) is clearly mentioned in the Holy Quran:

And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right hands possess. [This is] the decree of Allah upon you. And lawful to you are [all others] beyond these, [provided] that you seek them [in marriage] with [gifts from] your property, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse. So for whatever you enjoy [of marriage] from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.

4:24, An-Nisa, Holy Quran.

As per authentic Shia and Sunni sources, nikah mutah was established as a legal tradition by the Seal of all Prophets, Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله‎‎) himself:

Sahih Muslim Book 8 Hadith 3243

Abdullah (b. Mas’ud) reported: We were on an expedition with Allah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) and we had no women with us. We said: Should we not have ourselves castrated? He (the Holy Prophet) forbade us to do so. He then granted us permission that we should contract temporary marriage for a stipulated period giving her a garment, and ‘Abdullah then recited this verse: ‘Those who believe do not make unlawful the good things which Allah has made lawful for you, and do not transgress. Allah does not like trangressers” (al-Qur’an, v. 87).

Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: If anyone gives as a dower to his wife two handfuls of flour or dates he has made her lawful for him.

It has also been transmitted by Abu Asim from Salih ibn Ruman, from Abuz Zubayr on the authority of Jabir who said: During the lifetime of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) we used to contract temporary marriage for a handful of grain.

Ibn Uraij reported: ‘Ati’ reported that Jibir b. Abdullah came to perform ‘Umra, and we came to his abode, and the people asked him about different things, and then they made a mention of temporary marriage, whereupon he said: Yes, we had been benefiting ourselves by this temporary marriage during the lifetime of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) and during the time of Abi Bakr and ‘Umar.

…etc. As clearly shown from authentic Sunni sources, despite nikah mutah (eng. temporary marriage) being allowed during the life of; Seal of all Prophets, Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله‎‎), first Caliph’s of all Sunnis, Abu Bakr, and second Caliph’s of all Sunnis, Umar. Contrary to all that, Sunnis nowadays deem it haram (eng. religiously forbidden) and akin to prostitution (sic!) based upon alleged forbiddance, by Umar, of afromentioned marriage in ONE case:

Sahih Muslim Book 8 Hadith 3249

Jabir b. ‘Abdullah reported: We contracted temporary marriage giving a handful of (tales or flour as a dower during the lifetime of Allah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) and during the time of Abu Bakr until ‘Umar forbade it in the case of ‘Amr b. Huraith.

Shia Muslims hold only nikah and nikah mutah as a sacred marriages, as ordered and practiced by Seal of all Prophets, Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله‎‎). Despite the nowadays, massive Sunni anti-nikah mutah campaign of disinformation, unlike Sunni innovated marriages, nikah mutah comes with a set of rules and obligations; for example, children born of this temporary marriage are fully lawful to the father that conceived them, the bride must not be married, she must be Muslim or belong to Ahl al-Kitab (People of the Book), she should be chaste, not addicted to fornication and she should not be a virgin. At the end of the contract, the marriage ends and the wife must undergo iddah (three monthly periods, unless she is pregnant in which case the ‘iddah lasts until she gives birth, approx. eight-nine months)a period of abstinence from marriage (and thus, sexual intercourse). The iddah is intended to prevent fornication, prostitution and give paternal certainty to any child/ren should the wife become pregnant during the temporary marriage contract.

On the other hand, the adherents of Sunni religion, deem nikah mutah as forbidden, based upon the ruling by their second Caliph, Umar, in ONE specific case. Sunnis hold their self-appointed Caliphs as higher in judgement than the Prophets of God. What’s more, Umar’s ruling did not stop Sunnis from developing marriages that are not at all within the Prophetic traditions, namely; nikah misyar, nikah urfi, nikah halala and jihad al-nikah. Therefore, millions of Sunnis engage on daily basis in something that is an outward, forbidden bidah (eng. innovation in religion), being nothing short of an adulterous relationships disguised as a sacred prostitution.

Meanwhile in the Sunni reality: “Caliph Umar forbid us in ONE case Prophetic nikah mutah that comes with a set of rules and obligations, so we’ve came up with the bidah (religious innovation) of nikah misyar, nikah urfi, nikah halala and jihad al-nikah. 

* nikah misyar (traveller’s/visitor’s marriage) – is a type of Sunni temporary nikah (marriage) that is ostensibly carried out with the objective of allowing a couple to engage in intercourse ‘in a permissible manner’. The husband and wife thus joined abandon several marital rights such as living together, the wife’s rights to housing and maintenance money (nafaqa), and the husband’s right to homekeeping and access.

Misyar has been suggested by some authors that it is for the sole purpose of “sexual gratification in a licit manner” (see; Islam and the West: The Clash Between Islamism and Secularism by Mushtaq K. Lod, pp. 58-59 and The Islamic Shield: Arab Resistance to Democratic and Religious Reforms by Elie Elhadj, p. 51).

As reported by the Saudi media outlets (for example, Arab News) themselves, the practice of nikah misyar is widespread in the fundamentalist Sunni country (1, 2). Saudi owned Al Arabiya reported that Egypt’s Grand Mufti, announced that nikah misyar is legitimate “unless banned by the state” (1).

* nikah urfi (customary marriage. Urfi (Arabic: عرفي‎‎) comes from the Arabic word ‘Urf, which means custom, convention, or a customary act) – is a type of Sunni temporary nikah (marriage), to give prostitution an Islamic cover, that requires witnesses but isn’t officially registered with state authorities. Couples repeat the words, “We got married” and pledge commitment, although there are many other informal ways in which people marry `urfi. Usually a paper, stating that the two are married, is written and at least two witnesses sign it, although others may record their commitment on a cassette tape and use other forms of documentation. Many times these relationships are a way for people to have sex with each other. Nevertheless, the relationship is kept secret from family members.

In the past, it was common among the widows of soldiers who had huge pensions and they did not want to lose it by officially remarrying. Now, however, it is mostly among university students and young couples who cannot afford the high cost of marriage.

Undocumented ‘Urfi marriages are increasingly popular among Egyptian youth. The high cost of marriage forces many young couples to wait several years before they marry. Officially ‘Urfi marriages are conducted in the presence of two witnesses. However, they are not officially registered and are not legally financially binding on the man. Couples married in this way often meet in secret and avoid the expense of renting an apartment. The ‘Urfi marriage can be disastrous for the wife in legal terms. If the husband leaves her without granting her a divorce, she has no legal right to seek a divorce since ‘Urfi marriage is not registered. Her husband could remarry. The wife is in a more difficult position. If the wife remarries, she can be accused of polyandry, which is punishable by seven years in prison in Egypt, or she could remain single for the rest of her life.

A form of ‘Urfi marriage is known as zawag al-‘urfi: to give prostitution an Islamic cover, some women enter into secret marriage contracts with their summer visitors. Known in Egypt as zawag al-‘urfi, this contract is made without witnesses and typically ends in divorce by summer’s end. Similar Sunni “marriages” are widespread in the tourist hotspots, such as Tunisia and Morocco.

* nikah halala (allowed marriage) – is a type of Sunni process, to give prostitution an Islamic cover, temporary nikah (marriage), that allows for a couple to divorce three times and remarry constantly without the wife’s need to observe mandatory iddah (three monthly periods, unless she is pregnant in which case the ‘iddah lasts until she gives birth, approx. eight-nine months), a period of abstinence from marriage (and thus, sexual intercourse). The iddah is intended to prevent fornication, prostitution and give paternal certainty to any child/ren should the wife become pregnant during the (temporary) marriage contract.

* jihad al-nikah (sex jihad) – is a type of Sunni temporary nikah (marriage), to give prostitution an Islamic cover, that allows for unrelated people to engage in sexual relations, often with multiple partners at the same time. Being the newest bidah (innovation in religion), it emerged within the Wahhabi/Salafi circles from the onset of the war in Syria. Various fundamentalist Sunni preachers called upon the Sunni women to travel to Syria and Iraq and “give themselves away” to the terrorists “waging jihad against infidels”. The practice was reported not only by the Sunni terrorists, but also Arab governments themselves, such as Tunisia and Syria. Western media reported on multiple occasions, that the Sunni so called “Islamic State” executed hundreds of native girls and women because they refused to participate in this act of a sacred prostitution, thus terrorists were forced to rely on enslaved Yazidi women or Sunni volunteer women to fulfill their illicit desires.

Sunni pleasure timely “marriages” in practice

Except afromentioned cases, there is numerous more.

Sunni Omani, Qatari, Saudi Arabs visit India to “marry” underage girls from poor families. After  2-3 weeks, they leave back to their home countries, almost always without their child brides.

Conclusion

One can clearly see that the followers of religion that hijacked original Islam, engage in bidah (innovation in religion) activities just to fulfill their illicit sexual desires, even if it runs contrary to the teachings and life of the Seal of all Prophets, Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله‎‎).
