Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of oke and nash
Hadith #1

أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن أبيه عن ابن أبي عمير، عن بعض أصحابنا، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: ما تزوج رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله شيئا من نسائه ولا زوج شيئا من بناته على أكثر من اثنى عشر أوقية ونش. والأوقية أربعون درهما، والنش عشرون درهما.

1. My father, may Allah grant him mercy, said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Isa, from his father, from Ibn Abi ‘Umayr, from some of our companions, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, did not marry any of his women, nor did he marry away any of his daughters for more than twelve okes and a nash. An oke is (consisting of) forty dirhams, and a nash is twenty dirhams.
