Hadith #4

مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْفُضَيْلِ عَنْ أَبِي الصَّبَّاحِ الْكِنَانِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ إِذَا خَلَعَ الرَّجُلُ امْرَأَتَهُ فَهِيَ وَاحِدَةٌ بَائِنَةٌ وَ هُوَ خَاطِبٌ مِنَ الْخُطَّابِ وَ لَا يَحِلُّ لَهُ أَنْ يَخْلَعَهَا حَتَّى تَكُونَ هِيَ الَّتِي تَطْلُبُ ذَلِكَ مِنْهُ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يُضِرَّ بِهَا وَ حَتَّى تَقُولَ لَا أُبِرُّ لَكَ قَسَماً وَ لَا أَغْتَسِلُ لَكَ مِنْ جَنَابَةٍ وَ لَأُدْخِلَنَّ بَيْتَكَ مَنْ تَكْرَهُ وَ لَأُوطِئَنَّ فِرَاشَكَ وَ لَا أُقِيمُ حُدُودَ اللَّهِ فَإِذَا كَانَ هَذَا مِنْهَا فَقَدْ طَابَ لَهُ مَا أَخَذَ مِنْهَا .

4. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn ’Isma‘il has narrated from af-Fadl ibn Shadhan from abu al-Sabbah af-Kinaniy who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘If a man divorces his wife in the manner of al-Khul‘, it then is one divorce with which she becomes stranger to him and he then is one of those who may propose marriage. Al-KhuT is not lawful for him unless she is the one who demands for divorce from him without being beaten by her husband. That she says, ‘I will not honor your turn, will not take Ghusl (bath) for you because of sexual intercourse, I will allow people whom you dislike to enter your house, allow your bed to be used by others and will not obey any of the laws of Allah about you.’ When this happens from her side, then it is fine for him to receive the payment from her.’”
