2ـ سَهْلُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مِهْرَانَ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنِ الْمَرْأَةِ تَمُوتُ وَيَتَحَرَّكُ الْوَلَدُ فِي بَطْنِهَا أَ يُشَقُّ بَطْنُهَا وَيُسْتَخْرَجُ وَلَدُهَا قَالَ نَعَمْ. وَفِي رِوَايَةِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ زَادَ فِيهِ يُخْرَجُ الْوَلَدُ وَيُخَاطُ بَطْنُهَا.


2. Sahi ibn Ziyad has narrated from ’Isma‘ii ibn Mahziyar from Afi ibn abu Hamzah who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the case of a woman who dies and the baby moves inside her belly; is it prescribed to cut open to take the baby out. He (the Imam) said, ‘Yes, it must be cut open.’ In the narration of ibn abu ‘Umayr it is added that after taking out the baby the cut is stitched to close her belly.”

3ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ وَهْبٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) قَالَ قَالَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) إِذَا مَاتَتِ الْمَرْأَةُ وَفِي بَطْنِهَا وَلَدٌ يَتَحَرَّكُ شُقَّ بَطْنُهَا وَيُخْرَجُ الْوَلَدُ وَقَالَ فِي الْمَرْأَةِ تَمُوتُ فِي بَطْنِهَا الْوَلَدُ فَيُتَخَوَّفُ عَلَيْهَا قَالَ لاَ بَأْسَ أَنْ يُدْخِلَ الرَّجُلُ يَدَهُ فَيُقَطِّعَهُ وَيُخْرِجَهُ.


3. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid from his father from ibn Wahab who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that ’Amir al-Mu’minin, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘If a woman dies and in her belly is a child that moves, her belly is cut open to take the baby out.’ He (the Imam), about the case of a woman in whose belly the baby dies and there is fear for her life, has said, ‘A man can use his hand to take out the dead baby (if needed) cut in pieces.’”
