What is the point of temporary marriage


I am shia and I have found out tofay that shia have a thing where we can temporarily marry a women. Althought its not prostitution. I think it is because the dowry is a form of payment and you can have sex for a certain period of time and then the contract finishes. Thats a bit like prostitution. If possible i would like a indept explanation about why its wrong or right. What cases its allowed in and what the point of this marriage is.


Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question.
Mutah is not done because of dowry! It can have many reasons but money making. It is an ease that Allah put forward so that things can be handled in a Halal way
