The Twelver Shi'ah sect known as Ithna Ashariyah are a sect that opposes the Sunnah of the Prophet (Sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam). This sect practices many scandalous things, such as temporary marriage and sodomy between husband and wife (معاذ الله).
Sodomy is strictly forbidden in Islam, whether between man and a man or between a man and a woman. This is one of the reasons why Allah punished the people of Loot (the people of Sodom and Gomorrah) as mentioned in the Holy Quran.
However, if we consult the Shi'ah Madhhab, we find that they have allowed this disgusting act and even justified it from their twisted interpretation of the Holy Quran.
In the Shi'ah book of Hadith, Wasa'il al-Shi'ah there is the chapter:
بَابُ عَدَمِ تَحْرِيمِ وَطْءِ الزَّوْجَةِ وَ السُّرِّيَّةِ فِي الدُّبُرِ
Translation: “Chapter on the Absence of Prohibition of Anal Intercourse with the Wife and Mistress (Mu'tah Wife)”
In this scandalous chapter there are many narrations attributed to the Shi'ite Imams which allow for sodomy between husband and wife, for example:
عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ صَفْوَانَ يَقُولُ قُلْتُ لِلرِّضَا ع إِنَّ رَجُلًا مِنْ مَوَالِيكَ أَمَرَنِي أَنْ أَسْأَلَكَ عَنْ مَسْأَلَةٍ فَهَابَكَ وَ اسْتَحَى مِنْكَ أَنْ يَسْأَلَكَ قَالَ مَا هِيَ قَالَ قُلْتُ الرَّجُلُ يَأْتِي امْرَأَتَهُ فِي دُبُرِهَا قَالَ نَعَمْ ذَلِكَ لَهُ قُلْتُ فَأَنْتَ تَفْعَلُ ذَلِكَ قَالَ لَا إِنَّا لَا نَفْعَلُ ذَلِكَ
Translation: Safwan asked Imam al-Ridaa (A): “Can a man approach his wife in her anus?” He said: “Yes, that is for him”. I asked him: “Do you do that?” He said: “No I do not do that.”

In another narration, this one attributed to Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq, a similar ruling is given allowing sodomy between husband and wife but subject to the wife's permission:
عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَسْبَاطٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ حُمْرَانَ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي يَعْفُورٍ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يَأْتِي الْمَرْأَةَ فِي دُبُرِهَا قَالَ لَا بَأْسَ إِذَا رَضِيَتْ
Translation: Abi Ya'fur asked Aba Abdillah (A) about a man who approaches his wife in the anus. He said: “No problem if she is pleased with it (permits it).”

- Al-`Aamilee, Wasaa'il Al-Shee`ah, vol. 20, ch. 72, pg. 146, hadeeth # 25260
- Al-Majlisi said this hadeeth is Muwaththaq (Reliable) --> Milaadh Al-Akhyaar, vol. 12, pg. 356
On the same page is another narration, this one attributed to Imam al-Ridaa, which justifies the ruling on permission of anal sex by quoting a verse from the Holy Quran:
I inquired Abul Hasan Ridha (a.s) if a man does from behind his woman, he replied, This is Halaal by one aayah (verse) of the Book of Allah and that is the saying of Lut (alayhis salam). These are my daughters which are pure for you, though Lut knew that his nation didn't like the place of urination (see Tahzeeb ul Ahkam, v.7 p.415)
The answer to these false rulings of the Shi'ah Madhhab is that Islam strictly and unequivocally forbids sodomy (anal intercourse). One only has to read the following authentic Ahadith of the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) to realize this:
1 – It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The one who has intercourse with his wife in her back passage has disavowed himself of that which was revealed to Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).” Narrated by Abu Dawood (3904); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.
2 – It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah will not look at a man who has intercourse with a woman in her back passage.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (1165); classed as saheeh by Ibn Daqeeq al-‘Eid in al-Ilmaam (2/660) and by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.
3 – It was narrated that Khuzaymah ibn Thaabit (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah is not too shy to tell the truth” three times. “Do not have intercourse with women in their back passages.” Narrated by Ibn Maajah (1924); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah.
