Misyaar marriage

Question: What is your view oh noble Shaykh concerning Misyaar marriage and what is the Islamic verdict concerning it?

Shaykh Fawzan: We do not advise it, because it is not in line with the good interest of an Islamic marriage. Rather it is merely fulfilling the desires. And he will not have authority over his wife, and she will not live with him in his home. And if they have children they will be far away from him and from his supervision. Thus the intent behind marriage will not be achieved. Therefore we do not advise it.


[Translator’s Note: Misyaar marriage is where a man does an Islamic marriage contract with a woman, meeting the conditions of marriage, but the woman gives up some of her rights such as accommodation, maintenance, or the husband’s staying overnight with her.]
[Translated by: Rasheed ibn Estes Barbee]

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
