مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي نَجْرَانَ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ بُكَيْرٍ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ عَنِ الْيَسَعِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ( عليه السلام ) يَقُولُ لَا طَلَاقَ إِلَّا عَلَى السُّنَّةِ وَ لَا طَلَاقَ عَلَى السُّنَّةِ إِلَّا عَلَى طُهْرٍ مِنْ غَيْرِ جِمَاعٍ وَ لَا طَلَاقَ عَلَى سُنَّةٍ وَ عَلَى طُهْرٍ مِنْ غَيْرِ جِمَاعٍ إِلَّا بِبَيِّنَةٍ وَ لَوْ أَنَّ رَجُلًا طَلَّقَ عَلَى سُنَّةٍ وَ عَلَى طُهْرٍ مِنْ غَيْرِ جِمَاعٍ وَ لَمْ يُشْهِدْ لَمْ يَكُنْ طَلَاقُهُ طَلَاقاً وَ لَوْ أَنَّ رَجُلًا طَلَّقَ عَلَى سُنَّةٍ وَ عَلَى طُهْرٍ مِنْ غَيْرِ جِمَاعٍ وَ أَشْهَدَ وَ لَمْ يَنْوِ الطَّلَاقَ لَمْ يَكُنْ طَلَاقُهُ طَلَاقاً .


3. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad and Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ‘Abd al- Rahman ibn abu Najran from ‘Abd Allah ibn Bukayr from Zurarah from al-Yasa’ who has said the following: “I once heard abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has stated this Hadith. ‘Divorce, which is not according to Sunnah, is not a divorce. A divorce is not according to Sunnah if it is not pronounced in the presence of two just witnesses, in a menses-free period in which the husband has not gone to bed with her. If a man divorces his wife in a menses-free period during which he has not gone to bed with her but it is not in presence (of two just) witnesses, such divorce is not a valid divorce. If a man divorces his wife according to Sunnah, in a menses-free period in which he has not gone to bed with her and pronounces it in the presence of witnesses but has not intended it to be a divorce it also is not a valid divorce.’”
