Furai'ah bint Malik, the sister of Abu Sa'eed Al-Khudri, said:

"My husband died in Al-Qadum, so I went to the Prophet and told him that our house was remote." He gave her permission then he called her back and said: "Stay in your house for four months and ten days, until the term prescribed is fulfilled."
أَخْبَرَنَا إِسْحَاقُ بْنُ مَنْصُورٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ، عَنْ سُفْيَانَ، عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ إِسْحَاقَ، قَالَ حَدَّثَتْنِي زَيْنَبُ بِنْتُ كَعْبٍ، قَالَتْ حَدَّثَتْنِي فُرَيْعَةُ بِنْتُ مَالِكٍ، أُخْتُ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ قَالَتْ تُوُفِّيَ زَوْجِي بِالْقَدُّومِ فَأَتَيْتُ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَذَكَرْتُ لَهُ أَنَّ دَارَنَا شَاسِعَةٌ فَأَذِنَ لَهَا ثُمَّ دَعَاهَا فَقَالَ ‏ "‏ امْكُثِي فِي بَيْتِكِ أَرْبَعَةَ أَشْهُرٍ وَعَشْرًا حَتَّى يَبْلُغَ الْكِتَابُ أَجَلَهُ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
