The argument is yes based on SURA 65:4.SURA 65 is called AL-TALAQ(the divorce).It begins as 65:1:”Oh prophet,when you DIVORCE women divorce them at the prescribed period and count the period.”
“And for such of your women as:
1. DESPAIR of MENSTRUATION(NOTE:have MENOPAUSE), IF YOU have DOUBT, their period (of waiting) will be 3 MONTHS.
2.And with THOSE who have NOT menstruated.
3.And for those who are PREGNANT, their period (NOTE:of wait till the DIVORCE)will be till they give birth.”
If the husband DOUBTS the MENOPAUSE wife is really in menopause,wait 3 MONTHS.Why?To see if her stomach get big due to PREGNANCY.
If he doubts the wife does not menstruate(for a PREPUBESCENT wife,like 6,7,8 years of age),wait 3 MOTHS.To see if she is really NON-MENSTRUATING.
Here’s as it’s put by 3 MUSLIM translators(PICKTHAL was a British convert/plus YUSUFALI,SHAKIR):
NOTE:there are arguments against this interpretation but they can’t prove 100% sura 65:4 does NOT apply to PRE-PUBERTY wives.More to come.
