What is the ruling on marrying an American Muslim woman with the purpose of getting   citizenship then divorcing her?

Recommended Posts

**Temporary marriage is invalid, because it stands for Mut`ah, which is invalid through contextual evidence as well as the consensus of Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah (adherents to the Sunnah and the Muslim mainstream). It is recorded in the Two Sahih (authentic) Books of Hadith (i.e. Al-Bukhari and Muslim) on the authority of `Aly ibn Abu Talib (may Allah be pleased with him): that on the Day of Khaybar, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade the contracting of the temporary marriage and [eating] the meat of the domestic donkeys.

**According to another narration of the Hadith: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade marrying women temporarily on the Day of Khaybar. It is authentically narrated in the Sahih of Muslim that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, I formerly permitted you to contract temporary marriage with women, but Allah has forbidden it (now) until the Day of Resurrection. So he who has any (woman with this type of marriage contract) he should let her off, and do not take back anything you have given them (as Mahr).

**Moreover, sexual intercourse under temporary marriage is considered Zina (premarital sexual intercourse); one who gets married this way, being aware of its invalidity, is liable to all rulings of Zina. Marriage is only valid when a man gets married with the intention of keeping the bond of marriage forever if the wife proves to be a good wife and he gets along with her; otherwise he may divorce her. Allah (Exalted be He) said, The divorce is twice, after that, either you retain her on reasonable terms or release her with kindness May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

      Al-wudu’ is either obligatory or recommended.
      a- There are three things for which al-wudu is obligatory.
      1- As-Salah (Prayers)
      Allah (exalted be He) said: “O you who believe, when you intend to offer As-Salah (prayers), wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows, rub your heads, and wash your feet up to (and including) the ankles.” (Al-Ma’idan:6).
      2- Circumambulation of Ka’bah.
      This is because the Prophet ﷺ said to a menstruating woman: “Do not perform Tawaf until you have taken a purificatory bath.” [ narrated by Al-Bukhari.]
      3- Touching the Noble Qur’an:
      Allah the most Exalted says: “None touch it (The Noble Qur’an) except the purified”(Waqiah:79)

      Q-A man said that those who place their hands over their chests after rising from Ruku` (bowing) are committing an act of Bid`ah (innovation in religion). He tells people to let their hands down after rising from Ruku`. Is this view right or wrong? We hope that you could explain this to us with substantiated evidence. May Allah reward you best!

      A: It is authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that he used to place his right hand on the left one after Takbirat-ul-Ihram (saying: "Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]" upon starting Prayer) and after rising from Ruku` (bowing). Also it is authentically reported that he (peace be upon him) said: Pray as you have seen me praying. Therefore, placing the right hand on the left one upon one's chest is neither a Bid`ah nor an error. In fact, it is Sunnah (action following the teachings of the Prophet).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

      Voluntary charity is recommended at all times, especially when needed, and we have been encouraged to give charity in the book of Allah and the traditions of His Messenger ﷺ. For example:
      - Allah’s statement: “Who is he that will lend to Allah a goodly loan so that He may multiply it to him many times?” (al- Baqarah: 245)
      - On the authority of Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever spends in charity the equivalent of a date from pure earnings- and Allah accepts only that which is pure- Allah will accept it with his right hand and nurture it for its owner as any of you nurtures his foal –and a foal is the offspring of a horse – until it becomes like a mountain.” [ Agreed Upon]
      - The Prophet ﷺ counted the person who gives alms in secret to be among the seven that Allah will cover with His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His shade: “...and a man that gives alms and makes this secret to the extent that his left hand knows not what his right has spent.”
      - On the authority of Ka’b ibn ‘Ujrah (may Allah be pleased with him), the Prophet ﷺ said: “...and alms extinguishes bad deeds just as water extinguishes fire.” [ Source: At-Tirmidhi]

      A man concluded a marriage contract with a woman and then divorced her before consummating the marriage, is it permissible for him to marry her daughter or mother?
       It is permissible for someone who contracted a marriage with a woman and then divorced her before consummating the marriage to marry her daughter. However, it is not permissible to marry the mother due to just having contracted the marriage with her daughter. Allah (Exalted be He), when mentioning the women that a man is forbidden to marry, says: ...your wives’ mothers May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions. source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en
