1 thought on “Muhammad more than a man!

  1. There are several mentions in the Hadith about men who had more than four wives. Muhammed always says to reduce the number to four.

    It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar said:
    “Ghailan bin Salamah became Muslim and he had ten wives. The Prophet said to him: ‘Choose four of them.’ ”

    حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ حَكِيمٍ، حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا مَعْمَرٌ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، عَنْ سَالِمٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ أَسْلَمَ غَيْلاَنُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ وَتَحْتَهُ عَشْرُ نِسْوَةٍ فَقَالَ لَهُ النَّبِيُّ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ ‏ “‏ خُذْ مِنْهُنَّ أَرْبَعًا ‏”‏ ‏.‏
