Back to book

مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ كَيْسَانَ قَالَ كَتَبْتُ إِلَى الرَّجُلِ ( عليه السلام ) أَسْأَلُهُ عَنْ رَجُلٍ لَهُ امْرَأَةٌ مِنْ نِسَاءِ هَؤُلَاءِ الْعَامَّةِ وَ أَرَادَ أَنْ يُطَلِّقَهَا وَ قَدْ كَتَمَتْ حَيْضَهَا وَ طُهْرَهَا مَخَافَةَ الطَّلَاقِ فَكَتَبَ ( عليه السلام ) يَعْتَزِلُهَا ثَلَاثَةَ أَشْهُرٍ وَ يُطَلِّقُهَا .


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from ‘Abd Allah ibn Ja‘far from al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Kaysan who has said the following: “I once wrote to the man, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and asked about the case of a man who has a wife who is of ‘Ammah (the general population). He wants to divorce her but she hides her Hayd (menses) and Hayd (menses)-free period for fear of divorce. He (the Imam), ‘Alayhi al-Salam, wrote, ‘He can hold back from her for three months, then divorce her.”’
