حَدَّثَنِي يَحْيَى، عَنْ مَالِكٍ، أَنَّهُ بَلَغَهُ أَنَّ رَجُلاً، قَالَ لِعَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَبَّاسٍ إِنِّي طَلَّقْتُ امْرَأَتِي مِائَةَ تَطْلِيقَةٍ فَمَاذَا تَرَى عَلَىَّ فَقَالَ لَهُ ابْنُ عَبَّاسٍ طَلُقَتْ مِنْكَ لِثَلاَثٍ وَسَبْعٌ وَتِسْعُونَ اتَّخَذْتَ بِهَا آيَاتِ اللَّهِ هُزُوًا ‏.‏

Yahya related to me from Malik that he had heard that a man saidto Abdullah ibn Abbas, "I have divorced my wife by saying I divorceyou a hundred times. What do you think my situation is?" Ibn Abbassaid to him, "She was divorced from you by three pronouncements, andby the ninety-seven, you have mocked the ayat of Allah." Translation Not Available
