Ayatollah and Mutah

bismillahirahman1.JPG

Ayatollah Khomeini, the spiritual head of Iran, declared:

“It is permissible to engage in Mutah with a fornicator but with a disliking in one’s heart, especially if she is a well known and professional fornicator. When a person contracts Mutah with her, he should advise her to quit the profession of fornication.”

(source: Tahreer al-Waseelah, Najaf: Matb’ah al-Adab)

The Shia website, Al-Islam.org, backs this opinion and says:

“If a man should contract a temporary marriage with a fornicatress, it is his duty to command her not to perform adultery. But this is not a necessary condition of the marriage…”

(source: http://www.al-islam.org/al-serat/muta/3.htm)

The moral implications of this statement are astonishing. In other words, a man can have sex with a fornicatress. After he’s done having sex with her, he should advise her not to have sex too much? The sheer hypocrisy of this is not lost on the unbiased observor.

The leaders of a religion should be the most pious and righteous amongst the people. Ayatollah Khomeini is considered the Wilayat Mutlaqah, or the Absolute Authority from Allah. He is the sole representative of the Hidden Imam. Our question is simple: would the Absolute Authority from Allah actually say such immoral things?
