4- مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنْ غِيَاثِ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ قَضَى رَسُولُ اللهِ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) فِي سَيْلِ وَادِي مَهْزُورٍ أَنْ يُحْبَسَ الأعْلَى عَلَى الأسْفَلِ لِلنَّخْلِ إِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِ وَلِلزَّرْعِ إِلَى الشِّرَاكَيْنِ.

4. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Yahya from Ghiyath ibn Ibrahim who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, issued a judgment about the flood water of valley of Mahzur by which those of higher area could hold water for palm trees up to the anklebones and for plantation up to shoelaces.”
