حدثنا علي بن احمد قال: حدثنا محمد بن ابى عبد الله قال: حدثنا موسى ابن عمران عن عمه عن علي بن ابى حمزة عن أبى بصير قال: سألت ابا عبد الله " ع " ما بال الحائض تقضي الصوم ولا تقضي الصلاة؟ قال: لان الصوم إنما هو في السنة شهر، والصلاة في كل يوم وليلة، فاوجب الله عليها قضاء الصوم ولم يوجب عليها قضاء الصلاة لذلك.


1. Ali Bin Ahmad narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Abu Abdullah, from Musa Ibn Imran, from his uncle, from Ali Bin Abu Hamza, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘What is the matter that the menstruating woman fulfils the Fast (missed out) and does not fulfil the Prayers (missed out)?’ He (asws) said: ‘Because the Fast is a month from the year, and the Prayer is in every day and night. Therefore, Allah (azwj) Obligated upon her the fulfilment of the Fast and did not Obligate upon her the fulfilment of the Prayer, due to that’.
