Yahya related to me from Malik from Yahya ibn Said thatSaid ibn al-Musayyab was asked who was obliged to pay therent for a woman whose husband divorced her while she wasin a leased house. Said ibn al-Musayyab said, "Herhusband is obliged to pay it." Someone asked, "what ifher husband does not have it?" He said, "Then she mustpay it." Someone asked, "And if she does not have it?" Hesaid, "Then the Amir must pay it."
