QUESTION:

Is permanent marriage in Shi'a Islam allowed WITHOUT the presence of 
witnesses?  Please provide me with an answer and the source from which it 
was taken from.


ANSWER:

There are no witnesses required for Nikah or Muta in the Shia Fiqh. As for
evidence, you do not need evidence for something 'NOT' needed. IF at all
you ask for evidence, you do so for something required. Perhaps you could
ask those who believe that winesses ARE required for Nikah where they got
it from????

If you look up the conditions of Nikah and also look up the condition of
Talaq (Divorce) in the resalah of any Marja, you will see that there is no
mention of witnesses in Nikah, but there is the mention of two just
witnesses in Talaq.
