Nikah Mu’tah (temporary marriage): is it forbidden in Islam?
I am 5 months pregnant with my first child and I live with the baby's father, however, I am afraid that we are not "officially" married. We have what many Muslims call a Nikah Mut'ah (temporary marriage).
I am getting very different opinions from Sunnis and Shias about temporary marriage... I seem to have been brainwashed into thinking that it is OK and I am starting to question myself now that I am pregnant.
I have done brief research about what the Qu'ran states about it, but I can't seem to understand if it is forbidden or not....Sunnis say "forbidden" and many Shia say "allowed" but what I want to know is WHAT DOES ALLAH AND THE HOLY QUR'AN say about Nikah mut'ah?
ANYONE that has an opinion please feel free to respond. I need to know what to do before I have this baby so I can make right of my situation if I am indeed committing a SIN.
Thank you in advance brothers and sisters.
