can woman enter mutah with husbands brother


I have been reading and enhancing knowledge about Mutah. How it is not recommended act if permanent marriage is possible, and how people dont prefer to follow it. However is it applicable/validity for a Woman with his Husband’s brother i.e. A woman’s brother in law?


Alaykum Salaam

A woman who is already married cannot enter into a Mutah contract with another man.

If her husband dies and after the idda period, then yes,  she can enter into a marriage contract either Nikah or Mutah with his brother.

Kind regards
