On Stopping Flowing Blood

Al-Sabbah b. Muhammad al-Azdi narrated from al-Husayn b. Khalid, who said: A woman wrote to Al-Ridha’, peace be upon him, complaining of a continuous flow of blood. He [Al-Ridha’] wrote to her: “Take one handful of coriander and one of sumac and soak it for one night in the open air. Then put it on the fire and sieve it. Drink a saucer of it and the blood will cease, Allah, the Exalted, willing.”
