Mut'a marriage today

Many years ago I pointed to Ibn Abbas and his unpleasant opinions on this and that. Mut'a temporary marriage came up. I'd thought his fatwa was abandoned among Sunnis but still holds strong among Shi'a.

The Ismailis reject it, and so historically has the Zaydiya - although the Houthi Zaydis, under Tehran's dominion now, might change their minds. On the other side of the divide, it's looking like the caliph, and the Egyptians and Saudis, are reviving it in Hanbalism.
