Subject: What is meant by the following fatwa?
Question: Salam,

What is meant by the following fatwa?

2434. A woman with whom temporary marriage is contracted, is not entitled to share the conjugal bed of her husband

What defines a conjugal bed?
Can he/she sleep over at ones house in the same bed?
Answer: Bismillah

Salaam Alaikum. Unfortunately, sometimes the fatawa aren't translated or explained appropriately.
This fatwa is referring to a certain right which a permanent wife is entitled to which a temporary wife isn't entitled to. However, it isn't related to the permissibility of sharing a bed. It is most definitely permissible to share one's bed with one's temporary wife.
The right which is discussed in this fatwa is related to the right a wife has over her husband to have to spend a night with her every few nights. Many of the jurists have discussed this right in the context of polygamy. If one who has more than one permanent wife spends a night with one of his wives, the other wife(s) has the right to spend a night with the husband which means he is obligated to spend a night within the next 4 nights with her.
What this ruling says is that if a man with more than one wife has a temporary wife as well, spending a night with one of the permanent wives will not obligate him to spend a night with his temporary wife and so she isn't entitled to demand this based on a right, since she doesn't have this right.

Fee Amanillah
