Hadith #5

عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي نَصْرٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْكَرِيمِ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ قَالَ قُلْتُ لِأَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ( عليه السلام ) أَخْبِرْنِي عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَ لِلْمُطَلَّقاتِ مَتاعٌ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ حَقًّا عَلَى الْمُتَّقِينَ مَا أَدْنَى ذَلِكَ الْمَتَاعِ إِذَا كَانَ مُعْسِراً لَا يَجِدُ قَالَ خِمَارٌ أَوْ شِبْهُهُ .

5. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from ibn abu Nasr from ‘Abd al-Karim from abu Nasr who has said the following: “I once asked abu Ja’far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the words of Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, ‘. . . divorced women must be benefited with fairness. It is a right on the pious ones,’ and about what is the minimum of such benefits if one is not affluent. He (the Imam) said, ‘It is a scarf or similar things.’”
