Back to book

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ بُكَيْرٍ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ قَالَ قُلْتُ لِأَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ( عليه السلام ) مَا تَقُولُ فِي رَجُلٍ أَحْضَرَ شَاهِدَيْنِ عَدْلَيْنِ وَ أَحْضَرَ امْرَأَتَيْنِ لَهُ وَ هُمَا طَاهِرَتَانِ مِنْ غَيْرِ جِمَاعٍ ثُمَّ قَالَ اشْهَدَا أَنَّ امْرَأَتَيَّ هَاتَيْنِ طَالِقٌ وَ هُمَا طَاهِرَتَانِ أَ يَقَعُ الطَّلَاقُ قَالَ نَعَمْ .


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Bukayr from Zurarah who has said the following: “I once asked abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the case of a man who arranges for the presence of two just witnesses. He then brings two of his wives who both are clean of Hayd (menses) and has not gone to bed with them; then says, ’Bear witness that these two my wives are ‘Taliq’ (let go, divorced) and they are clean of Hayd (menses): if divorce takes place or not. He (the Imam) said, ’Yes, it is a valid divorce.’”
