2ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ يَعْقُوبَ قَالَ قُلْتُ لأَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) الْمَرْأَةُ تَرَى الدَّمَ ثَلاَثَةَ أَيَّامٍ أَوْ أَرْبَعَةً قَالَ تَدَعُ الصَّلاَةَ قُلْتُ فَإِنَّهَا تَرَى الطُّهْرَ ثَلاَثَةَ أَيَّامٍ أَوْ أَرْبَعَةً قَالَ تُصَلِّي قُلْتُ فَإِنَّهَا تَرَى الدَّمَ ثَلاَثَةَ أَيَّامٍ أَوْ أَرْبَعَةً قَالَ تَدَعُ الصَّلاَةَ قُلْتُ فَإِنَّهَا تَرَى الطُّهْرَ ثَلاَثَةَ أَيَّامٍ أَوْ أَرْبَعَةً قَالَ تُصَلِّي قُلْتُ فَإِنَّهَا تَرَى الدَّمَ ثَلاَثَةَ أَيَّامٍ أَوْ أَرْبَعَةً قَالَ تَدَعُ الصَّلاَةَ تَصْنَعُ مَا بَيْنَهَا وَبَيْنَ شَهْرٍ فَإِذَا انْقَطَعَ الدَّمُ عَنْهَا وَإِلاَّ فَهِيَ بِمَنْزِلَةِ الْمُسْتَحَاضَةِ.

2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Yunus ibn Ya’qub who has said the following: “I once said to abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, that a woman may experience blood discharge for three or four days. He (the Imam) said, ’She must stop performing Salah (prayer).’ I then said that she might experience Hayd-free time for three or four days. He (the Imam) said, ’She must perform Salah (prayer).’ I then said that she might experience blood discharge for three or four days. He (the Imam) said, ‘She must stop performing Salah (prayer).’ I then said that she might experience blood- discharge-free time for three or four days. He (the Imam) said, ’She must perform Salah (prayer).’ I then said that she might experience blood discharge for three or four days. He (the Imam) said, ‘She must stop performing Salah (prayer) and continue as such for one month and if blood discharge did not stop she must deal with it according to the rules for Istihadah (irregular menses).”’
