Time confusion in Muttah


I am follower of Ayetullah Sistani. I did muttah for one year. Second time when i did muttah with the same girl once the year ended we decided to make time until our permanent nikah. Later on after one year we did permanent nikah. What is the ruling for the second muttah. Was it commenced? If not, Did we engage in gunnah by meeting each other. We are confused. Help us.


Waalykum salam

Thank you for Question.
From what I understand from your writing, you did a Mutah for a year, then did another one to end with your permanent, and that’s exactly what you did! So nothing sounds wrong
You second Mutah did commence and end in the right way, and now you’re permanently married.
If your query is not what I have made out of your writing, please send a clarification

Kind regards,
