Maliks Muwatta Book 29, Hadith Number 68.

Section : Maintenance of Divorced Woman.

Yahya related to me from Malik that he heard Ibn Shihab say, “The woman who is absolutely divorced does not leave her house until she is free to remarry. She has no maintenance unless she is pregnant. In that circumstance the husband spends on her until she gives birth.”

Malik said, “This is what is done among us.”
