as in the Sahih al-Bukhari it self, Mutah marriage is classed as forbidden because said that Ali bin Abi Talib said that he heard Muhammad say that it is forbidden. Narrated by 'Ali bin Abi Talib "On the day of khaibar, Allah's Apostle forbade the Mut'a (i.e. temporary marriage) and the eating of donkey-meat. " Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 527 [ 13 ]

In another text Ali bin Abi Talib also said that it was forbidden in Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 9, Book 86, Number 91

Many early Shia texts also state that Ali said Mutah marriage was forbidden and for this reason the Zaidi Shia, the oldest branch of the Shia do not practice Mutah marriage. Shia book like Tahdeeb: vol. 7, pg. 251, rewaya 10 and Istebsar: vol. 3, pg. 142, rewaya 5 also said that Ali said that Mutah marriage was forbidden because Muhammad told him.

Other early Shia books also recorded that Imam Baqir forbade Mutah Marriage 'Tahdeeb al Ahkam' and 'Furu al Kafi':Pp476.V2/Pp34.V5 and there was no recorded case of it in Alis family.
