Question:

 Dear Dr. Nabulsi

 Can a man sign a marriage contract with a woman only to get the nationality of a certain country that she has, provided that he intends to divorce her after that, she knows and accepts that for some money and they don't live together as a husband and wife?

 Thank you

Answer

This is totally haram and prohibited. It is playing with a sacred contract.
