Ruling 625

If a woman scratches her face in mourning a deceased person and makes it bleed, or if she pulls out her hair, then based on recommended precaution she should free one slave, or feed ten poor people (fuqarāʾ), or clothe them. The same applies to a man who tears his collar or his clothes in mourning the death of his wife or child.
