we find in sahih bukhari

Volume 7, Book 62, Number 13o:

Narrated ‘Abdullah:

We used to participate in the holy battles led by Allah’s Apostle and we had nothing (no wives) with us. So we said, “Shall we get ourselves castrated?” He forbade us that and then allowed us to marry women with a temporary contract (2) and recited to us: — ‘O you who believe ! Make not unlawful the good things which Allah has made lawful for you, but commit no transgression.’ (5.87)

so, holy prophet allowed mutaa; and he recited verse from surat ul maidah;

so it means that this incident took place after the revelation of this surat;
so let us find out when this surat was revealed

first we find in ibn kather

The Virtues of Surat Al-Ma’idah; When It was Revealed

At-Tirmidhi recorded that `Abdullah bin `Amr said, “The last Surahs to be revealed were Surat Al-Ma’idah and Surat Al-Fath (chapter 48).” At-Tirmidhi commented, “This Hadith is Hasan, Gharib.” and it was also reported that Ibn `Abbas said that the last Surah to be revealed was,

[إِذَا جَآءَ نَصْرُ اللَّهِ وَالْفَتْحُ ]

(When there comes the help of Allah and the Conquest,) Al-Hakim collected a narration similar to that of At-Tirmidhi in his Mustadrak, and he said, “It is Sahih according to the criteria of the Two Shaykhs and they did not record it.” Al-Hakim narrated that Jubayr bin Nufayr said, “I performed Hajj once and visited `A’ishah and she said to me, `O Jubayr! Do you read (or memorize) Al-Ma’idah ‘ I answered `Yes.’ She said, `It was the last Surah to be revealed. Therefore, whatever permissible matters you find in it, then consider (treat) them permissible. And whatever impermissible matters you find in it, then consider (treat) them impermissible.”’ Al-Hakim said, “It is Sahih according to the criteria of the Two Shaykhs and they did not record it.
so, it tells us that it is one of the last surats; and it comes with good isnaad

أخرج ابن جرير وابن المنذر عن قتادة قال‏:‏ المائدة مدنيه‏.‏

ibn jurair and ibn manzir narrate from qatada that surat ul maidah is madani

وأخرج أحمد وأبو عبيد في فضائله والنحاس في ناسخه والنسائي وابن المنذر والحاكم وصححه وابن مردويه والبيهقي في سننه عن جبير بن نفير قال‏:‏ حججت فدخلت على عائشة، فقالت لي‏:‏ يا جبير تقرأ المائدة‏؟‏ فقلت‏:‏ نعم‏.‏ فقالت‏:‏ اما انها آخر سورة نزلت، فما وجدتم فيها من حلال فاستحلوه، وما وجدتم من حرام فحرموه‏.‏

imam ahmad and abu ubaid in fadail, and nihas in nasikh, and nisai, ibn manzir, and hakim who said it is sahih; and ibn mardoiya, and behqi in sunan narrate from ibn jubair bin nafeer that

“I performed Hajj once and visited `A’ishah and she said to me, `O Jubayr! Do you read (or memorize) Al-Ma’idah ‘ I answered `Yes.’ She said, `It was the last Surah to be revealed. Therefore, whatever permissible matters you find in it, then consider (treat) them permissible. And whatever impermissible matters you find in it, then consider (treat) them impermissible.”

وأخرج أحمد والترمذي وحسنه والحاكم وصححه وابن مردويه والبيهقي في سننه عن عبد الله بن عمرو قال‏:‏ آخر سورة نزلت سورة المائدة، والفتح‏.‏

imam ahmad, tirmidhi who said it is hasan; and hakim who said it is sahih, and ibn mardoiya, and behqi in sunan
narrate from abdullah bin amr who said that the last surat to reveal is surat-ul-maidah and surat-ul-fath


وأخرج أبو عبيد عن محمد بن كعب القرظي قال ‏”‏نزلت سورة المائدة على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في حجة الوداع، فيما بين مكة والمدينة وهو على ناقته، فانصدعت كتفها، فنزل عنها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏”‏‏.‏

abu ubaid narrates from mohammad bin kaab, he said that surat-ul-maidah was revealed in hujat-ul-wada’a, when he was between mecca and madina; and he was on camel, and when it revealed, the shoulder of camel broke/fractured


وأخرج ابن جرير عن الربيع بن أنس قال‏:‏ نزلت سورة المائدة على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في المسير، في حجة الوداع وهو راكب راحلته، فبركت به راحلته من ثقلها‏.‏


ibn jurair narrates from rabi’i bin anas who said that the surat was revealed when prophet was on journey; in hujjat-ul-wadaa, and he was on camel and that sat because of the weight of it

وأخرج أبو عبيد عن ضمرة بن حبيب وعطية بن قيس قالا‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏”‏المائدة من آخر القرآن تنزيلا، فاحلوا حلالها، وحرموا حرامها‏”‏‏.‏


abu ubaid narrated from damra bin habeen and atiya bin qais who said that prophet said that maidah is the last surat, so what is halal in it, is halal; and what is haram in it, is haram

وأخرج سعيد بن منصور وابن المنذر عن أبي ميسرة قال‏:‏ آخر سورة أنزلت سورة المائدة، وإن فيها لسبع عشرة فريضة‏.‏

abu mesra said that the last surat is surat maidah; and it has 17 farz

وأخرج أبو داود والنحاس كلاهما في الناسخ عن أبي ميسرة عمرو بن شرحبيل قال‏:‏ لم ينسخ من المائدة شيء‏.‏

abu daod and nihas narrated from abu mesra that there is nothing which is mansookh in maidah


وأخرج عبد بن حميد وأبو داود في ناسخه وابن المنذر عن ابن عون قال‏:‏ قلت للحسن‏:‏ نسخ من المائدة شيء‏؟‏ فقال‏:‏ لا‏.‏


hasan basri was asked if something is mansookh in maidah; he said no


so this proves that the sunni claims that mutaa was made haram  are wrong; since we find that it was there in the very last timings of islam;
and there is no hukum in this surat which is made mansookh
