The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

There is also “muwaqqat (temporary) marriage” in the sense of muta marriage. It is also an invalid marriage. The difference between them is almost no more than using different words. For instance, in temporary marriage, the words nikah and tazwij, which express marriage, are used along with the time period; in muta marriage, the word tamattu or istimta, which expresses "making use of the woman sexually" is used. On the other hand, in muta marriage, witnesses and limitation of time are not necessary. In temporary marriage, they are necessary. (Ibn Abidin, Raddul-Muhtar, Istanbul 1984, III, 51, ff)

As it is understood from the decree above, temporary marriage that is made without paying any money is not permissible.
