أخبرني علي بن حاتم قال: أخبرني القاسم بن محمد قال: حدثنا حمدان ابن الحسين عن الحسين بن الوليد عن حنان بن سدير قال: قلت لاي علة اعطيت النفساء ثمانية عشر يوما ولم تعط أقل منها ولا أكثر؟ قال: لان الحيض أقله ثلاثة أيام وأوسطه خمسة أيام، واكثره عشرة أيام، فاعطيت أقل الحيض وأوسطه واكثره.
1. Ali Bin Hatim informed me, from Al Qasim Bin Muhammad, from Hamdan Ibn Al Husayn, from Al Husayn Bin Al Waleed, from Hanan Bin Sudeyr who said, ‘I said, ‘For which reason has the bleeding after childbirth been given eighteen days and was not give any less from it, nor any more?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Because the menstruation, its minimum is three days, and its median is of five days, and its maximum is of ten days. Thus is has been given the minimum of the menstruation, and its median, and its maximum’.
