Assalamu 'alaykum

The following question was answered by Mulla Asgher.

Salaams & Duas,

QUESTION:

The person who needs the answer is on taqleed of Sayed Khui (RA).
A Muslim is considering to marry a Christian woman on the basis of mut'a.
She was married to another man until five years ago, when they separated
formally in the court. But because some financial issues have not been
settled after their separation, they never concluded their formal (civil)
divorce, according to the court. 

What is the Islamic ruling for a new marriage (mut'a) of this Christian
woman with the Muslim man? Is she still considered married or divorced for
this matter?


ANSWER:

If the Christian lady has had her divorce solemnised according to SHARIAT,
and has completed her IDDAH, she can contract MUTA'H or a permanent marriage
with a Muslim. This is according to the rulings of Ayatullah Al-Khui, may
ALlah bless him.
