Abu Musa al Ash’ari would pass verdict of the validity of Mut’ah

 

عن أبي موسى أنه كان يفتي بالمتعة فقال له رجل رويدك ببعض فتياك فإنك لا تدري ما أحدث أمير المؤمنين في النسك بعد حتى لقيه بعد فسأله فقال عمر قد علمت أن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قد فعله و أصحابه و لكن كرهت أن يظلوا معرسين بهن في الأراك ثم يروحون في الحج تقطر رؤوسهم

It is related that Abu Musa would pass verdict of the validity of Mut’ah. A man said to him, “Be careful with some of your verdicts for you are unaware of what Amir al Mu’minin has recently introduced in the rituals of hajj.”

When Abu Musa met him thereafter, he asked him about this so ‘Umar explained, “I am aware that Nabi salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and his Sahabah practiced it. However, I disliked them having conjugal relations with their wives in Arak and then proceeding for hajj while water is dripping from their heads.”[1]

 

The ahadith of Sayyidina Abu Musa al Ash’ari radiya Llahu ‘anhu are dealing with Hajj Tamattu’, and not Mut’ah marriage as interpreted by the shrewd Rawafid.

Ponder over the words of the person who told Sayyidina Abu Musa radiya Llahu ‘anhu, “in the rituals of hajj,” and Sayyidina ‘Umar’s radiya Llahu ‘anhu words, “proceeding for hajj.”

Furthermore, Sayyidina ‘Umar radiya Llahu ‘anhu did not prohibit Hajj Tamattu’. One of the evidences for this is what the authors of Sunan like al Nasa’i, Ibn Majah, and others have reported. Sabi ibn Ma’bad told Sayyidina ‘Umar radiya Llahu ‘anhu, “I donned ihram for both hajj and ‘umrah.” ‘Umar told him:

 

هديت لسنة نبيك صلى الله عليه و على آله و سلم

You have been guided to the Sunnah of your Nabi salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.[2]

 

Next⇒ Ibn ‘Umar would search for the places where Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam would perform salah
