حُمَيْدُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَمَاعَةَ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ سَمَاعَةَ أَنَّ جَمِيلًا شَهِدَ بَعْضَ أَصْحَابِنَا وَ قَدْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يَخْلَعَ ابْنَتَهُ مِنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا فَقَالَ جَمِيلٌ لِلرَّجُلِ مَا تَقُولُ رَضِيْتَ بِهَذَا الَّذِي أَخَذْتَ وَ تَرَكْتَهَا فَقَالَ نَعَمْ فَقَالَ لَهُمْ جَمِيلٌ قُومُوا فَقَالُوا يَا أَبَا عَلِيٍّ لَيْسَ تُرِيدُ يَتْبَعُهَا الطَّلَاقُ قَالَ لَا قَالَ وَ كَانَ جَعْفَرُ بْنُ سَمَاعَةَ يَقُولُ يَتْبَعُهَا الطَّلَاقُ فِي الْعِدَّةِ وَ يَحْتَجُّ بِرِوَايَةِ مُوسَى بْنِ بَكْرٍ عَنِ الْعَبْدِ الصَّالِحِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ قَالَ عَلِيٌّ ( عليه السلام ) الْمُخْتَلِعَةُ يَتْبَعُهَا الطَّلَاقُ مَا دَامَتْ فِي الْعِدَّةِ .

9. Humayd ibn Ziyad has narrated from al-Hassan ibn Muhammad ibn Sama’ah from Ja’far ibn Sama’ah thatJamil wanted al-Khul ‘ for his daughter from a certain persons of our people; that Jamil said to that man, ‘What do you say, do you agree with what you have received and leave her free?’ He replied, ‘Yes, I agree.’ Jamil then said to them, ‘You can get up and go.’ They asked, ‘O abu Ali, do you not want that divorce follows it?’ He replied, ‘No, I do not need it.’ Ja’far ibn Sama’ah would say that it must be followed by divorce in the manner with waiting period. He presented narration of Musa ibn Bakr from the virtuous servant of Allah as proof. He (the Imam), ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that Ali, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘When a woman divorced in the manner of al-Khul‘ it must be followed by divorce as long as she is in waiting period.’”
