1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مَرَّارٍ وَغَيْرِهِ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَمَّنْ حَدَّثَهُ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) قَالَ سُئِلَ عَنِ امْرَأَةٍ انْقَطَعَ عَنْهَا الدَّمُ فَلاَ تَدْرِي أَ طَهُرَتْ أَمْ لاَ قَالَ تَقُومُ قَائِماً وَتُلْزِقُ بَطْنَهَا بِحَائِطٍ وَتَسْتَدْخِلُ قُطْنَةً بَيْضَاءَ وَتَرْفَعُ رِجْلَهَا الْيُمْنَى فَإِنْ خَرَجَ عَلَى رَأْسِ الْقُطْنَةِ مِثْلَ رَأْسِ الذُّبَابِ دَمٌ عَبِيطٌ لَمْ تَطْهُرْ وَإِنْ لَمْ يَخْرُجْ فَقَدْ طَهُرَتْ تَغْتَسِلُ وَتُصَلِّي.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ’Isma‘il ibn Marrar and others from Yunus from those whom he has mentioned, has said the following: “Abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, was asked about the case of a woman who experiences her blood discharge to have stopped but does not know if she is Hayd-free or not. He (the Imam) said, ’She must stand up with her belly leaned against a wall, place a piece of white cotton in her urethra and raise her right leg. Thereafter she examines the piece of cotton. If there is thick dark color blood, even of the size of the head of a fly, on the tip of the piece of cotton, her Hayd (menses) has not stopped; and if there is no blood on the tip of cotton, she must take Ghusl (bath) and perform Salah (prayer).’”

2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from abu Ayyub from Muhammad ibn Muslim who has said the following: “Abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has stated this Hadith. Tf a woman wants Ghusl (bath), she should place a piece of cotton in her urethra. If blood is found on it, she cannot take Ghusl (bath); but if blood is not found on it, she must take Ghusl (bath) and if thereafter she finds yellowish discharge she must take Wudu’ to perform Salah (prayer).”’

3. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Salmah ibn al-Khattab, from Ali ibn al-Hassan al-Tatariy, from Muhammad ibn abu Hamzah, from ibn Muskan, from Shurahbil al-Kindiy who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about how a woman experiencing Hayd (menses) can find out if her Hayd (menses) has ended. He (the Imam), said, ‘She can find out by leaning against a wall on her left leg and place a piece of cotton in her urethra with her right hand. If there is blood even of the size of fly’s head on the tip of the piece of cotton (it has not ended).”’

4. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from abu Hamzah who has said the following: “Once it was mentioned before Abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, that women, during the night, asked for a lantern to examine if blood discharge has stopped or not; and it was considered laughable. He (the Imam) said, ‘When did women do this?”’ (Meaning the proper test is with a piece of cotton)

5. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘ Umayr from Tha’labah who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, would prohibit women to examine themselves at night during their Hayd (menses), saying that it can be a discharge of a yellowish color fluid or some kind of dirt.’”

6. Ali ibn Muhammad has narrated from certain persons of our people from Muhammad ibn Ali al-Basriy who has said the following: “I once said to abu al-Hassan, the last, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, that the daughter of Shihab during her Hayd- free times, after taking Ghusl (bath), finds drops after drops of discharge. He (the Imam) said,
