Pearl of Wisdom

Venerate the scholar for his knowledge and abandon argumentation with him. Depreciate the ignorant man for his ignorance but do not drive him away. Rather draw him near and teach him.' Shahid al-Awwal (may Allah sanctify his soul) wrote in his al-Qg,wa'id, 'The veneration of a believer is allowed according to what is current amongst the norms of the time, even though the practice has not been handed down from our forefathers but because of the general laws indicating to it. Allah, most High, says, That, and whoever venerates the sacraments of Allah indeed that arises from the godwariness in the hearts , and He, most High, says, That, and whoever venerates the sacraments of Allah, that is better for him with his Lord. , and The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'Do not display hatred towards each other, nor be jealous of each other, nor oppose each other, nor break off relations with each other, but rather be brothers as servants of Allah.' Based on this , standing and veneration through curtsying and the like is allowed, and may even be obligatory if abandonment of it will lead to mutual hatred and breaking of relations or to the insult of a believer. It is authenticated that the Prophet (SAWA) stood up for Fatima (AS) and for Ja'far [may Allah be pleased with him) when he arrived from Abyssinia, and he said to the Ansar, 'Stand up for your leader.' It has been reported that he (SAWA) stood up for 'Ikrima b. Abi Jahl when he arrived from Yemen, gladdened by his arrival.'

Question : #484 Category: Marriage - Muta'
Subject: please help
Question: I did Muta with a woman while I was permanently married to another. I had sexual intercourse with that woman who read the shahdatain in English for the sake of making her permissible for me in Muta. She was not a Muslim before that. She only gave shahada for the sake of marriage while she still had doubts about Islam. Does that make her a Muslim and did I commit adultery? If I did commit adultery, is my permanent Muslim wife halal for me? I have not consummated the marriage with my permanent wife yet and we also do not live together but we did nikah and we do see each other regularly.
Answer: If she pronounced the Shahadatain with the acknowledgment of its meanings and guarding the content in such a way that she sees herself, because of this amongst Muslims, then she is considered as one and your marriage to her is valid.

If her recitation was not real and without accepting the contents of the Shahadatain, then she is not a Muslim and your relationship with her is prohibited.

The said adultery does not affect your relationship with your present permanent wife.

We ask almighty lord to bless your present marriage and guide you to avoid prohibition and fallacies.
