1- عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ زُرَارَةَ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ قُلْتُ لَهُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ الرَّجُلُ يَتَزَوَّجُ الْمُتْعَةَ وَيَنْقَضِي شَرْطُهَا ثُمَّ يَتَزَوَّجُهَا رَجُلٌ آخَرُ حَتَّى بَانَتْ مِنْهُ ثُمَّ يَتَزَوَّجُهَا الأوَّلُ حَتَّى بَانَتْ مِنْهُ ثَلاثاً وَتَزَوَّجَتْ ثَلاثَةَ أَزْوَاجٍ يَحِلُّ لِلأوَّلِ أَنْ يَتَزَوَّجَهَا قَالَ نَعَمْ كَمْ شَاءَ لَيْسَ هَذِهِ مِثْلَ الْحُرَّةِ هَذِهِ مُسْتَأْجَرَةٌ وَهِيَ بِمَنْزِلَةِ الإمَاءِ.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from certain persons of our people from Zurarah who has said the following: “I once asked abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, saying, ‘I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, a man marries a woman in the manner of al-Mut‘ah (advantageous marriage) and its appointed time expires, then another man marries her and she becomes strangers to him then the first man marries her and she becomes stranger to him and this takes place three times and she marries three husbands; if it is permissible for the first man to marry her again. He (the Imam) said, ’Yes, it is permissible, as many times as he wants; it is not like a free woman. She is hired and her case is similar to slave-girls.’”
