salaam 'alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu,
An inspiring speech by Shaykh Hasan:
This is a glorious day my brothers and sisters in faith.  A day where a few in our community have not only proved they are mu'mineen but that
they are muhsineen.
It is one of the hardest things in the world to want for others what you want for yourself but the price for paradise is not cheap.

سورة التوبة - سورة 9 - آية 111

للغلة الإنجليزية    

ان الله اشترى من المؤمنين انفسهم واموالهم بان لهم الجنة يقاتلون في سبيل الله فيقتلون ويقتلون وعدا عليه حقا في التوراة والانجيل والقران ومن اوفى بعهده من الله فاستبشروا ببيعكم الذي بايعتم به وذلك هو الفوز العظيم

Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain. It is a promise which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur'an. Who fulfilleth His covenant better than Allah? Rejoice then in your bargain that ye have made, for that is the supreme triumph.
The Jihaad of a man is to fight in the battle field with a sword.
Does the woman not a similar Jihaad?  Yes, she does.  The Prophet said.
جهاد المرأة حسن التبعل
To be a good cooperative wife is the Jihaad of a woman and a part of that Jihaad is the toleration of polygyny.  If Sara did not
tolerate polygyny Ismael would not have been born hence no 12 Imams.  If Hajara did not tolerate polygyny Ishaaq would have been
born hence 2 Ulul 'Azm prophets would not have been born.

سورة النساء - سورة 4 - آية 3

للغلة الإنجليزية    

وان خفتم الا تقسطوا في اليتامى فانكحوا ما طاب لكم من النساء مثنى وثلاث ورباع فان خفتم الا تعدلوا فواحدة او ما ملكت ايمانكم ذلك ادنى الا تعولوا

And if ye fear that ye will not deal fairly by the orphans, marry of the women, who seem good to you, two or three or four; and if ye fear that ye cannot do justice (to so many) then one (only) or (the captives) that your right hands possess. Thus it is more likely that ye will not do injustice.
The Qur'an has ordered us to marry 2, 3 and 4 and if one can not be just we should marry 1.
Polygyny is the default and rule not the exception.  It didn't say marry 1 and if you can do justice
marry 2, 3 or 4.
Is Justice difficult? 
It depends on how one defines justice.
We all have our own defintinos don't we?
What we are concerned with here is the definition of the Prophet and the 12 Imams and not our
personal definitions.  Our Maraaji'l al Kiraam have written that Justice here is only in expendature
and in spending of nights.  However in temporary marriage even these requriements are waived
in favor of mutual and consentual conditions that may or may not be added to the marriage contract.
A proof for that is in another verse:

سورة النساء - سورة 4 - آية 129

للغلة الإنجليزية    

ولن تستطيعوا ان تعدلوا بين النساء ولو حرصتم فلا تميلوا كل الميل فتذروها كالمعلقة وان تصلحوا وتتقوا فان الله كان غفورا رحيما

Ye will not be able to deal equally between (your) wives, however much ye wish (to do so). But turn not altogether away (from one), leaving her as in suspense. If ye do good and keep from evil, lo! Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful.
Allah clarifies that absolute justice is impossible so why did He make the impossible the rule
and not the exception.
Brothers and sisters Polygyny is Mustahabb in islaam.  We have come to think that Monogamy
is the default hence we ahve a surplus of muslmi women in our communities.  Even if only 5%
lived polygynously we would solve the worlds problem of surplus women which is the cause of much
social corruption.
I am encouraging temporary marriages of 99year contracts publicly not secritively with mutual conditions
of inheritance and what ever is amicably agreed upon.  This is the wisdom of Allah.  Allah made mut'ah
halaal in 4:24

سورة النساء - سورة 4 - آية 24

للغلة الإنجليزية    

والمحصنات من النساء الا ما ملكت ايمانكم كتاب الله عليكم واحل لكم ما وراء ذلكم ان تبتغوا باموالكم محصنين غير مسافحين فما استمتعتم به منهن فاتوهن اجورهن فريضة ولا جناح عليكم فيما تراضيتم به من بعد الفريضة ان الله كان عليما حكيما

And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you. Lawful unto you are all beyond those mentioned, so that ye seek them with your wealth in honest wedlock, not debauchery. And those of whom ye seek content (by marrying them), give unto them their portions as a duty. And there is no sin for you in what ye do by mutual agreement after the duty (hath been done). Lo! Allah is ever Knower, Wise.
What is in the Qu'ran can not be abrogated except by the Qur'an .  This Madani verse can not be abrogated by a Makki verse
as our sunni brothers think sometimes.  Neither can a Madani verse be abrogated by a hadeeth.  It is impossible.
Public Mut'ah to replace conventional Daaim marriage is a need in our times especially becauase when we have surplus women
we have so much human suffering.
Islam has given us the solution to our problems, all of our problems if we are willing to follow and human suffering will be converted
into tranquility and happiness.
The prophet said to make a believer happy is the greatest deed in the world.
 ادخال السرور على قلب المؤمن
by the grace of Allah we have a few true mu'mineen in our community. 
A small parable first.
In the cafeteria at school there was an unusually long line every day for a whole semester.
Only those who got on line first got food.
Those on the back of the line due to doing extra work in class got no food.
For half of the semester the hungry ones just watched as those who had food just laughed at them
and said, "perhaps you will have better luck tomorrow".
The 2nd half of the semester a few sisters came togehter and protested the injusttice they were meeting out towards their
hungry classmates.
They said, "It is not right that we eat while our neighbor is hungry, we must share our food with them."
Perhaps we will be the last on line one day and have to suffer as they.  Let us share but the food was so tasty it was hard to share.
Everyone was hungry.  But a believer can not be a believer and eat while his neigbor suffers silently.

سورة البقرة - سورة 2 - آية 273

للغلة الإنجليزية    

للفقراء الذين احصروا في سبيل الله لا يستطيعون ضربا في الارض يحسبهم الجاهل اغنياء من التعفف تعرفهم بسيماهم لا يسالون الناس الحافا وما تنفقوا من خير فان الله به عليم

(Alms are) for the poor who are straitened for the cause of Allah, who cannot travel in the land (for trade). The unthinking man accounteth them wealthy because of their restraint. Thou shalt know them by their mark: They do not beg of men with importunity. And whatsoever good thing ye spend, lo! Allah knoweth it.

I have spoken with almost every married couple in the community and by the grace of Allah there is 1/3 that is willing to share
a husband for the sake of Allah and the Prophet and love for the 12 Imams.
This is a glorious day of my brothers and sisters.
Some of these married couples are rich and some are poor.
Now which of your spinster unmarried sisters would not mind sharing a husband if you have been having trouble finding one?
Muslim men can marry non-muslim women.  Muslim women can not marry non-muslim men.  This leaves a natural surplus of women.
The parable I mentioned has to do with you hard working sisters who have put off marriage in order to do extra work to serve the Ummah
by becoming educated and independent.
May Allah bless you for your hard work and commitment.  Many of you have become outstanding professionals and examples of true muslims.
However when you got to the end of the lunch line you found that all the good men have been taken!  There is no more "food".
My dear sisters.  Our generous married sisters have said they would expect you to share a husband with them if they were in your shoes.
Therefore they are willing to share a husband with you!
Some are very rich and some are very poor and some are in between.  The rich would not mind taking in a poor sister if she helps around
the house and promises not to try to streal her husband!  Can you do this?  If so Allah will give you so much thawaab and barakah.  Be a good sister to her as she is to you.

سورة النحل - سورة 16 - آية 90

للغلة الإنجليزية    

ان الله يامر بالعدل والاحسان وايتاء ذي القربى وينهى عن الفحشاء والمنكر والبغي يعظكم لعلكم تذكرون

Lo! Allah enjoineth justice and kindness, and giving to kinsfolk, and forbiddeth lewdness and abomination and wickedness. He exhorteth you in order that ye may take heed.

If you are a poor spinster then of course some of these poor couples would like an independent co-wife to help them "pay some bills".
Are there any takers?  Which among you noble hard working great spinster sisters are willing to share a good man?
To share a good man is better than to be married monogomously to a bad man.  You are not being forced into anything.
We are only asking you to consider and interview the willing married couples and if you all agree and set your terms amicably you may do
as you want to do.

سورة المائدة - سورة 5 - آية 2

للغلة الإنجليزية    

يا ايها الذين امنوا لا تحلوا شعائر الله ولا الشهر الحرام ولا الهدي ولا القلائد ولا امين البيت الحرام يبتغون فضلا من ربهم ورضوانا واذا حللتم فاصطادوا ولا يجرمنكم شنان قوم ان صدوكم عن المسجد الحرام ان تعتدوا وتعاونوا على البر والتقوى ولا تعاونوا على الاثم والعدوان واتقوا الله ان الله شديد العقاب

O ye who believe! Profane not Allah's monuments nor the Sacred Month nor the offerings nor the garlands, nor those repairing to the Sacred House, seeking the grace and pleasure of their Lord. But when ye have left the sacred territory, then go hunting (if ye will). And let not your hatred of a folk who (once) stopped your going to the inviolable place of worship seduce you to transgress; but help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty. Help not one another unto sin and transgression, but keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is severe in punishment.
Remember by practicing mut'ah which is a great blessing in Islam as our Prophet ordered us to practice it and he practiced it
and all of our 12 Imams practiced it.  The blessing is that mut'ah which is view as an unofficial marriage does not break
monomgamy judicial laws in Western Countries.  You can not have 2 official marriages in Western countries.  But you can
have 2 unofficial unregistered marriages and it is fine.

صحيح البخاري، الإصدار 2.03 - للإمام البخاري
الجزء الثالث >> 68 - كتاب التفسير. >> 35 - باب: {فمن تمتع بالعمرة إلى الحج} /البقرة: 196/.

4246 - حدثنا مسدد: حدثنا يحيى، عن عمران أبي بكر: حدثنا أبو رجاء، عن عمران بن حصين رضي الله عنهما قال:
أنزلت آية
المتعة في كتاب الله، ففعلناها مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، ولم ينزل قرآن يحرمه، ولم ينه عنها حتى مات، قال رجل برأيه ما شاء.
[ر: 1496]
[ش أخرجه مسلم في الحج، باب: جواز التمتع، رقم: 1226]
  (مجموع الأحرف: 306)
This is in both Sunni and Shi'i references.  Anyone know the Shi'i references?
Even if you disbelieve that this is the time what will we do about the problem of surplus women in the Shi'a community?
It is easy to criticize but if polygyny is not the solution what is?  Lake of acceptance of polygyny has made the divorce
rates in our communities sky rocket.  Most cases of divorce are because a man did mu'tah but what are these single
women to do if they don't "steal" a husband for themselves?
how many of you have known of cases a married man doing mut'ah with a single shi'i woman secretly, the first wife finding out eventually and the 1st wife demanding a divorce?
After 10 years that same very 1st wife secretly does mut'ah with another married man and his own first wife finds out eventually and his own 1st wife demands a divorce?
Don't you see brothers and sisters.  We can reverse the domino effect in the other direction if we educate and encourage polygyny.  What will happen
if we succeed is that the non-muslim single women will come to Shi'i Islam motivated by our acceptance of Polygyny as a normal and honorable
institution and their recognition of the truth of 12er Shi'i Islam.  We can't lose! 
Even the non-muslim men will come to Shi'i Islam because they would love to have 2 wives and it is perfectly fine so long as he is just because the non-muslim women were jealous and he used to cheat behind his non-muslim wife's back but now he doesn't have to.
non muslim women would prefer being married polygynously to a good man who is loyal and loving than a bad man who cheats behind her back constantly and where all co-wives love each others like sisters rather than being jealous of one another.
