3- الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُعَلَّى بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْوَشَّاءِ عَنْ جَمِيلِ بْنِ دَرَّاجٍ وَمُحَمَّدِ بْنِ حُمْرَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالا سَأَلْنَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) كَمْ أُحِلَّ لِرَسُولِ اللهِ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) مِنَ النِّسَاءِ قَالَ مَا شَاءَ يَقُولُ بِيَدِهِ هَكَذَا وَهِيَ لَهُ حَلالٌ يَعْنِي يَقْبِضُ يَدَهُ.

3. Al-Husayn from Muhammad has narrated from Mu’alla’ ibn Muhammad from al-Hassan ibn Ali al-Washsha’ from Jamil ibn Darraj Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ibn Humran who has said the following: “We once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ‘How many women were lawful for the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause. He (the Imam) said, ‘As many as he (the Messenger of Allah) wanted’ - making a hand gesture by keeping it closed he (the Imam) said - ‘it was lawful for him.’”
