1. Narrated to us certain persons of our people from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Faddal from abu Jamilah from Sa‘d ibn Tarif who has said the following: “Abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that once the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, passed by a man and asked, ’How is your wife doing?’ He said, ‘I have divorced her, O Messenger of Allah.’ He (the Messenger of Allah) asked, ‘Did you do it without her misbehaving?’ He replied, ‘Yes, it was without her misbehaving.’ He (the Imam) said that he married and the Holy Prophet, passed by and asked, ‘Have you got married?’ He replied, ‘Yes, I have married.’ He (the Messenger of Allah) afterward asked, ‘How is your wife?’ He replied, ‘I have divorced her.’ He (the Messenger of Allah) asked, ‘Did you divorce her without her misbehaving?’ He replied, ‘Yes, it was without her misbehaving.’ The man then got married and the Holy Prophet, passed by and asked, ‘Have you got married?’ Afterward he (the Messenger of Allah) asked about his wife and he replied, ‘I divorced her.’ He (the Messenger of Allah) asked, ‘Did you do without her misbehaving?’ He replied, ‘Yes, it was without her misbehaving.’ The Messenger of Allah then said, ‘Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, hates or condemns every man who divorces hastily (like an epicure who keeps tasting this and that food) and every woman who is as such.’”

2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from more than one person who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘Of whatever Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, has made lawful nothing is more hateful to Him than divorce. Allah hates those who divorce very often in a hasty manner (like an epicure who keeps tasting this and that food).”’

3. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn from ‘Abd al-Rahman n Muhammad from abu Khadijah who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, loves the house in which there is a wedding and He hates the house where divorce takes place. There is nothing more hateful to Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, than divorce.’”
