34. Waiting Period of a Woman whose Hayd (menses) is Confused

Back to book

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ جَمِيلِ بْنِ دَرَّاجٍ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ أَمْرَانِ أَيُّهُمَا سَبَقَ بَانَتْ مِنْهُ الْمُطَلَّقَةُ الْمُسْتَرَابَةُ تَسْتَرِيبُ الْحَيْضَ إِنْ مَرَّتْ بِهَا ثَلَاثَةُ أَشْهُرٍ بِيضٍ لَيْسَ فِيهَا دَمٌ بَانَتْ بِهِ وَ إِنْ مَرَّتْ بِهَا ثَلَاثُ حِيَضٍ لَيْسَ بَيْنَ الْحَيْضَتَيْنِ ثَلَاثَةُ أَشْهُرٍ بَانَتْ بِالْحَيْضِ .


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Jamil ibn Darraj from Zurarah who has said the following: “Abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has stated this Hadith. ’In the case of a woman whose Hayd (menses) is confusing, of the two issues whichever comes first marks a woman’s becoming stranger to her husband. One is passing of three months without any blood discharge and taking place of three Hayd (menses) the two of which are not three months apart from each other.’” According to ibn abu ’Umayr Jamil has made this statement. ‘It can be explained as follows: If three months one day less pass and she experiences Hayd (menses) then three months one day less pass and she experiences Hayd (menses) then three months one day less pass and she experiences Hayd (menses), she counts waiting period with Hayd (menses) in this way. She does not count by months. If three months pass without blood discharge for three months and she does not experience Hayd (menses) she then becomes stranger to her husband.’

2. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn abu Nasr al-Bazantiy from ‘Abd al-Karim from Muhammad ibn Hakim who has said the following: “I once asked the virtuous servant of Allah about the case of a young girl who does not experience Hayd (menses) when girls like her become pregnant and her husband has divorced her. He (the Imam) said, ’Her waiting period is three months.’”

3. Sahl ibn Ziyad has narrated from Ahmad from ‘Abd al-Karim from abu Basir who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘Waiting period of a woman who does not experience Hayd (menses) and the one who experiences Istihadah who does not be become clean is three months. Waiting period of one whose Hayd (menses) is straight is three Quru’ (Hayd free periods). Al-Quru’ (Hayd free period) is the time of accumulation of blood between two Hayd (menses).”’

4. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn ’Isma‘il from Muhammad ibn al-Fudayl from abu al-Sabbah al-Kinaniy who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the case of a woman who experiences Hayd (menses) once every three months: if she needs to count a waiting period. He (the Imam) said, ‘She must wait for a period of time equal to that when she experienced Hayd normally; thus she counts her waiting period for three Hayd-free periods. Thereafter she can marry if she so wants.’”

Of such women is one who experiences Hayd (menses) once every three, six or seven months. Another is one who experiences Istihadah and has not reach the age of experiencing Hayd (menses) also one who experiences Hayd (menses) in one month but not in the other month as well as one who has no hope to have a child. Another is one in her menopause who thinks that she is not of such age and the one who sees a yellowish discharge whose Hayd (menses) is not straight’”

Waiting period of a woman whose Hayd is straight is three Hayd-free periods.’ I then asked about the meaning of the words of Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, ‘. . . if you have doubt.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘This ‘doubt’ is about what is more than one month, thus, she counts her waiting period for three months and ignores Hayd. Whatever of Hayd is in a month which does not increase in Hayd her waiting period is three cycles of Hayd.”’

If she experiences Hayd in a month several times such woman’s waiting period is like the waiting period of one who experiences Istihadah, whose ‘Iddah (waiting period) is three months. If she experiences Hayd straightly, thus, in every month is one Hayd and between two Hayd (menses) one month of time it is the Hayd-free period.’”
