Mutʿah (متعة) is an Arabic word which literally means enjoyment, delight, or gratification.

In terms specific to Islamic law, mutʿah refers to the compensation paid to a divorced woman; in the legal phrase nikāḥ al-mutʿah (نكاح المتعة) it refers to temporary marriage.[1]

But there are more meanings to the word mutʿah as follows:

Of those three, the most common meanings are:

Those two terms should not be confused with each other, as they are separate things and the Islamic term "mutʿah" can denote one or both of the terms i.e. mutʿah of Hajj or the Nikāḥ al-Mutʿah.

N.B.: Mutʿah should not be confused the "mu'tah" (مؤتة) (as in Mu'tah or the Battle of Mu'tah). "Mu'tah" is a completely different word and is derived from a completely different root (ʾa-t-ā) (أ ت ى) and there is absolutely no relation between the words.
