Back to book

ابى رحمه الله قال: حدثنا علي بن ابراهيم عن ابيه عن عبد الله بن ميمون عن جعفر بن محمد عن ابيه عليهما السلام قال كن يؤمرن النساء في زمن الرسول صلى الله عليه وآله ان لا يرفعن رؤسهن إلا بعد الرجال لقصر ازرهن قال وكان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يسمع صوت الصبى يبكى وهو في الصلاة فيخفف الصلاة فتصير إليه أمه.


1. My father said, ‘Ali Bin Ibrahim narrated to us, from his father, from Abdullah Bin Maymoun, (It has been narrated) from Ja’far (asws) Bin Muhammad (asws), from his (asws) father (asws) having said: ‘The women were ordered, during the era of Rasool-Allah (saww), that they should not be raising their heads except after the men due to the shortness of their burdens. And Rasool-Allah (saww), whenever he (saww) used to hear the child crying, and he (saww) was in the Prayer, so he (saww) would lighten it, so that its mother can go to it quicker’.
