Why has Allaah prohibited the marriage of Mut`ah?

Allaah has prohibited the marriage of mut`ah because the intent behind marriage is the (building of mutual) affection and permanance (of relationship) and the building of a (stable) home and family as He (Ta`aala) says:

{And among His Signs is that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy}, [Soorah ar-Room, Aayah 21]

And because the marriage of mut`ah can lead to the ruin of children who are the product of intercourse in this (type of) marriage, and it can also lead to much mischief and corruption amongst the ummah; Because of this, Allaah (`Azza wa Jall) has prohibited it. And it is authenticated on the authority of the Prophet (saw) that he said:

((Indeed it (marriage of mut`ah) is prohibited right through to the Day of Judgement)), [Transmitted by Muslim, #1406]

And this indicates that it is not possible for this prohibition ever to be abrogated because if (we were to entertain that) it was possible to abrogate it, then (we must also entertain that) it is possible the Messenger of Allaah is a liar, and this notion is impossible.

    Assalaamu Alaikum

    Is it allowed for anyone to “the reason why Allaah did this was this”, if Allaah did not say anything about it Himself?

    Like the ones who say Allaah prohibited pork due to this reason, while Allaah did not mention a specific reason. They say Allaah prohibited pork due to a bacteria found on it. So now that it can be neutralized, does it make pork to be halal? And beef also has a bacteria, so why was not it made haram?

    There can be many reasons for a prohibition which is not known to science. So we must believe the limit what was brought to us.

    For one can say “from the benefits of this prohibition we understand such and such”, but if Allaah did not specify a reason so how can one come and explain His reason?

    Rather it is now allowed for us to say that as it may lead to saying upon Allaah what Allaah did not hold as a reason. Thus we end up fabricating upon Allaah.

    As there are matters which Allah explained a reason on its obligation or prohibition and matters which Allaah did not mention anything, and it is known to Him alone.

    And Allaah knows best.
