1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from al-Hassan ibn Mahbub from Hisham ibn Salim from ‘Ammar al-Sabatiy who has said the following: “Once abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, was asked about the case of a man who has a young wife who experiences Hayd (menses) every two or three months after once and about how he can divorce her. He (the Imam) said, ’Her case is difficult. He can divorce her according to Sunnah once in a Hayd (menses)-free period in the presence of witnesses and without going to bed; then leave her until she experiences Hayd (menses) three times whenever she experiences Hayd (menses). When she experiences three Hayd (menses) her waiting period is complete.’ It then was asked, ‘What happens if one year passes and she does not experience Hayd (menses)?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘If one year passes and she does not experience three Hayd (menses) he waits three months after that (one year) time then her waiting period expires.’ It then asked, ‘What happens if he or she dies?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘Whoever dies, the living one inherits the deceased one from that day up to fifteen months.’”
