Hadith #2

2ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنْ فَضَالَةَ بْنِ أَيُّوبَ عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ أَبَانٍ الْكَلْبِيِّ قَالَ ذَكَرْتُ لأَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) الْمُسْتَحَاضَةَ فَذَكَرَ أَسْمَاءَ بِنْتَ عُمَيْسٍ فَقَالَ إِنَّ أَسْمَاءَ وَلَدَتْ مُحَمَّدَ بْنَ أَبِي بَكْرٍ بِالْبَيْدَاءِ وَكَانَ فِي وِلادَتِهَا الْبَرَكَةُ لِلنِّسَاءِ لِمَنْ وَلَدَتْ مِنْهُنَّ أَوْ طَمِثَتْ فَأَمَرَهَا رَسُولُ الله (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) فَاسْتَثْفَرَتْ وَتَنَطَّقَتْ بِمِنْطَقَةٍ وَأَحْرَمَتْ.

2. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa‘id from Fadalah ibn Ayyub from ‘Umar ibn Aban al-Kalbiy who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the case of a woman who experiences Istihadah (kind of menses). He (the Imam) mentioned ’Asma’ bint ‘Umays and said, ’Asma’ gave birth to Muhammad ibn abu Bakr in al-Bayda’ and in the case of her giving birth there was blessing for women who give birth or experience Hayd (menses). The Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, commanded her to use something like a diaper, secure it with a belt and assume the state of Ihram.”’
