Salamun Alaykum,

The following question was kindly answered by Mulla Asghar.

Question:

Can you perform the Mut'a formula over the Internet (e-mail) without actual
personal conversation and speaking to each other? How do you know who the
person really is? This will become an important issue as our brothers and
sisters start using the Internet more frequently; not just for Muta, but
Nikah, and other types of contractual agreements. One of the problems in the
Internet today is authentication and verification. 

As well, it is difficult to tell if written materials in electronic form
have been changed, deleted, corrupted, or otherwised modified.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Answer:

The problem of authentication that you have mentioned is a reason why the
Mut'a or Nikah formula has to be uttered; tacit approval or written
agreements are not sufficient (See Agha Seestani's Islamic Laws, Masail 2372)

Wasalaam
