Question:After a debate I have a concern, what is the ruling of Shia (saadat) to marry a Bohri cast? Is it allowed? I could not find any ruling under Agha Sistani.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer:
As long as Marriage with Muslims concern there is no problem to marry either with a Sunni or Bohra or Zaidiya sects of Islam because they all are Muslims but the most important thing we should keep in our mind that marriage will not only join husband and wife but it connect two families and their culture too. Therefore if there is no issue of culture and your future children (because if the girl wants to remain in Bohra sect then it would most surely affect one’s children’s faith and ideology ) then you can do this.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Agar aap Zinda Insan ki baat kar rahe hain to uske liye wajib hai ke agar woh raat main Mujnib ho jata hai, Fajr ki azan se pahle ghusl kar ley warna uska roza bhi batil hoga aur usey us roze ke badle qaza aur faffara dono anjam dena parega.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: There is no objection to commencing with "salam" to them, but it is discouraged (makruh) except when necessary, even if it is customary. Their "salam" should be replied by saying "'alayk." There is no objection to congratulating them on special occasions. (MMS, pp. 31-32, Q63)

Question:What to recite to do mutah and how to do it?
Explain the conditions as well

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 2378. It is permissible for a man and a woman to recite the formula of the temporary marriage (Mut'ah), after having agreed on the period of marriage and the amount of Mahr. Hence, if the woman says: Zawwajtuka nafsi fil muddatil ma'lumati 'alal mahril ma'lum (i.e. I have made myself your wife for an agreed period and agreed Mahr), and then the man immediately responds thus: Qabiltu (i.e. I have accepted), the marriage will be in order. And the marriage will also be in order if they appoint other persons to act as their representatives.
First, the representative of the woman should say to the representative of the man thus: Matta'tu muwakkilati muwakkilaka fil muddatil ma'lumati 'alal mahril ma'lum (i.e. I have given my client to your client in marriage for the agreed period and the agreed Mahr), and then the representative of the man should immediately respond thus: Qabiltut tazwija li muwakkili hakaza (i.e. I accepted this matrimonial alliance for my client this way).
