أبي رحمه الله عن سعد بن عبد الله عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى عن أحمد ابن محمد بن أبي نصر البزنطي عن أبي الحسن الرضا (ع) في المطلقة ان قامت البينة انه طلقها منذ كذا وكذا وكان عدتها انقضت فقد بانت. والمتوفي عنها زوجها تعتد حين يبلغها (الخبر) لانها تريدان تحد له.
1. My father, from Sa’ad Bin Abdullah, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ahmad Ibn Muhammad Bin Abu Nasr Al Bazanty, (It has been narrated) from Abu Al-Hassan Al-Ridha (a.s.) regarding the divorced woman, if the proof is established that she is divorced since such and such a day, and her waiting period has passed, so she has been irrevocably divorced. And the woman widowed from her husband will start her waiting period when the news (of his death) reaches her, because she would want to restrict herself for him (wear black clothes, no adornments, etc.)’.
