"Misyar" is a term used to describe a type of marriage in which a woman gives up some of her rights, such as housing, financial support, and dowry, in exchange for a husband. The word "misyar" is derived from the Arabic word "sara", which means "to walk". In Arabic, "sara al-kalam" means "the speech spread among people", and "sayirah" means "neighbor". Misyar marriage is a type of marriage in which a woman agrees to relinquish some of her rights in exchange for a husband, in order to reduce some of the financial and housing responsibilities of marriage. This type of marriage is sometimes kept secret. Today, we will answer the most commonly asked question about misyar marriage, which is how to get married through misyar.
Misyar marriage is a valid and legal marriage contract in which a man marries a woman who gives up some of her rights, such as housing, financial support, and dowry. On the other hand, temporary marriage (mut'a) is a type of marriage in which a man marries a woman for a specific period of time and for a certain amount of money, and when the period ends, the marriage ends without divorce. The woman loses her right to housing and financial support, and the couple does not inherit from each other in this type of marriage, even if the specified period has not ended.
To contract a misyar marriage, the following steps should be taken:
The conditions and terms of the misyar marriage contract should be applied because it is a valid marriage contract that includes all the requirements of a valid marriage. However, the woman is not entitled to financial support or housing.
Misyar marriage requires the presence of both parties, a guardian, and witnesses, and the contract should be made with the consent of both parties.
The misyar marriage contract should be documented in court and should include some conditions agreed upon by both parties. The woman usually gives up some of her rights, such as housing, financial support, dowry, or the right to visit her husband on a specific day or time.
