Patience...... I skimmed the gemara looking for the answer to my question, but accidentally skipped it! Tosfos Ri"d on the Mishna tipped me off to check again. Gitin 27b: ת''ר איזהו שלא לאלתר רבי נתן אומר ששהה כדי שתעבור שיירא ותשרה ר''ש בן אלעזר אומר כדי שיהא אדם עומד ורואה שלא עבר שם אדם ויש אומרים שלא שהה אדם שם רבי אומר כדי לכתוב את הגט רבי ...

Other answers have explored why the Torah mentions the future in your case, so i'm just going to bring another case of this. Bereishit 32:33: עַל-כֵּן לֹא-יֹאכְלוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת-גִּיד הַנָּשֶׁה, אֲשֶׁר עַל-כַּף הַיָּרֵךְ, עַד, הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה: כִּי נָגַע בְּכַף-יֶרֶךְ יַעֲקֹב, בְּגִיד הַנָּשֶׁה. Explaining this particular case, perhaps the ...

Another one that Rashi actually points out is in Bereishis 2 14 d.h. Kush v'Ashur. As far as why here, I would suggest that it brings out the unbelievable unnatural event of the destruction, much like Eiliyahu watering everything before the heavenly fire struck.

Are there any other places in Tanach where this kind of explicit foreshadowing happens? There are probably a few, but, one memorable one for me is Shmot 16:35 that states that B'nai Yisra'el ate the manna for 40 years until they arrived at the border of Cana'an. Obviously, it hadn't yet happened. As to why such cases occur, in general, this fits into ...

(physically maybe it takes time but legally (halochekly)) it is instant why should heat be different than (Shulchan Aruch - Yora Deaya 96.1) cutting a (spicy) radish that after one cut (probably even if the knife is very sharp so very fast) we say that the taste traveled kdai nitila (the thickness of a finger)?

According to the opinions that one must wait a given amount of time, the only way they were able to rely upon the washing and bentching option previously was because it was a societal norm to wash in such a manner and therefore there was an assumption that it would happen on its own accord. At a time however when it is not a given to be done, one may not ...

The Chamudei Daniel has the famous opinion that for things that the Shulchan Aruch says "it becomes not kosher immediately", that means "if you don't pull them out immediately." More like a 2-second rule or so.

I take your question that you are asking that according to halocho, how much time do we need to consider that the taste had already halochakly traveled? It seems from Shulchan Aruch - Yora Deaya 92:2 (about a milk falling onto a peace of meat in a hot pot, and that if you were mixing right away or you closed the pot right away the rest of pot combines with ...

The Geonim mostly lived in the Middle East, while the Rishonim mostly lived in Europe. So it seems likely that their opinions reflect different local customs. If your local custom is stricter than the established halacha, you can keep it while still recognizing the intellectual authority of those whose halachic ruling is more lenient.

The Avudraham translation of "משועבת" as "subjugated" meaning "dominated by" is where the problem lays. The appropriate translation would be "subject to", meaning "under the authority of" her husband, to meet his needs. Since this new requirement was placed upon women as a tikkun, meaning a means of correcting some deficiency that occurred in connection ...
