Please note that this is not a "how many hurs will men get in jannah" question. This question is somewhat different.

My question is about how many wordly women will make wives of Muslim men in Jannah?

Jami` At-Tirmidhi 1663 states that Muslim men will get 72 wives from Hur-ul-ayn. This is the Arabic text of that narration:-

وَيُزَوَّجُ اثْنَتَيْنِ وَسَبْعِينَ زَوْجَةً مِنَ الْحُورِ الْعِينِ

This translates to:- they (the inmates of paradise) shall be married to seventy two wives along Al-Huril-'Ayn of Paradise.

A similar Hadith is found in Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 7400 and Imam Ibn Hibban has declared it authentic.

One narration in Musnad Ahmad even says that even the ordinary people in paradise will also get 72 hur-ul-ayn:-

“The ordinary inmate of paradise.. for him there will be seventy-two partners from Hurul ‘In besides his spouses from (the women of) this world.” (Musnad Ahmad, Hadith 10874, Classified as Hasan by Ahmad Shakir)

However, Abu Hurayrah states the the number of Hur-ul-ayn shall be 70 and Muslim men shall marry two women from the progeny of Adam. This is what Ibn Kathir reports in his tafsir:-

Tafseer ibn Katheer, vol 7, . 533 [ commentary of Surah al-Waqiah v 22-40]

وَفِي حَدِيثِ الصُّورِ الطَّوِيلِ الْمَشْهُورِ (5) أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَشْفَعُ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ كُلِّهِمْ فِي دُخُولِ الْجَنَّةِ فَيَقُولُ اللَّهُ: قَدْ شَفَّعْتُكَ وَأَذِنْتُ لَهُمْ فِي دُخُولِهَا. فَكَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ: "وَالَّذِي بَعَثَنِي بِالْحَقِّ، مَا أَنْتُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا بِأَعْرَفَ بِأَزْوَاجِكُمْ وَمَسَاكِنِكُمْ من أهل الجنة بأزواجهم ومساكنهم، فَيَدْخُلُ الرَّجُلُ مِنْهُمْ عَلَى ثِنْتَيْنِ وَسَبْعِينَ زَوْجَةً، سَبْعِينَ مِمَّا يُنْشِئُ اللَّهُ، وَثِنْتَيْنِ مَنْ وَلَدِ (1) آدَمَ لَهُمَا فَضْلٌ عَلَى مَنْ أَنْشَأَ اللَّهُ، بِعِبَادَتِهِمَا اللَّهَ فِي الدُّنْيَا، يَدْخُلُ عَلَى الْأُولَى مِنْهُمَا فِي غُرْفَةٍ مِنْ يَاقُوتَةٍ، عَلَى سَرِيرٍ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ مُكَلَّل بِاللُّؤْلُؤِ، عَلَيْهِ سَبْعُونَ زَوْجًا مِنْ سُنْدُس وَإِسْتَبْرَقٍ وَإِنَّهُ لَيَضَعُ يَدَهُ بَيْنَ كَتِفَيْهَا، ثُمَّ يَنْظُرُ إِلَى يَدِهِ مِنْ صَدْرِهَا مِنْ وَرَاءِ ثِيَابِهَا وَجِلْدِهَا وَلَحْمِهَا، وَإِنَّهُ لَيَنْظُرُ إِلَى مُخِّ سَاقِهَا كَمَا يَنْظُرُ أَحَدُكُمْ إِلَى السِّلْكِ فِي قَصَبَةِ الْيَاقُوتِ، كَبِدُهُ لَهَا مِرْآةٌ -يَعْنِي: وَكَبِدُهَا لَهُ مِرْآةٌ-فَبَيْنَمَا هُوَ عِنْدَهَا لَا يَمَلُّهَا وَلَا تَمَلُّهُ، وَلَا يَأْتِيهَا مِنْ مَرَّةٍ إِلَّا وَجَدَهَا عَذْرَاءَ، مَا يَفْتُرُ ذَكَرُه، وَلَا تَشْتَكِي قُبُلها إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَا مَنِيَّ وَلَا مَنيَّة، فَبَيْنَمَا هُوَ كَذَلِكَ إِذْ نُودِيَ: إِنَّا قَدْ عَرَفْنَا أَنَّكَ لَا تَمَلُّ وَلَا تُمَلُّ، إِلَّا أَنَّ لَكَ أَزْوَاجًا غَيْرَهَا، فَيَخْرُجُ، فَيَأْتِيهِنَّ وَاحِدَةً وَاحِدَةً (2) ، كُلَّمَا جَاءَ وَاحِدَةً قَالَتْ: وَاللَّهِ مَا فِي الْجَنَّةِ شَيْءٌ أَحْسَنُ مِنْكَ، وَمَا فِي الْجَنَّةِ شَيْءٌ أَحَبُّ إِلَيَّ مِنْكَ".

This translates to:-

Abu Hurayra narrated

Prophet (Sallallahu'alayhiwassalam) said, “Every man in heaven will go to 72 of the creatures of Allah (houris) and two of the women of mankind, these two women are superior to the creatures of Allah (houris) with their worshipping (good deeds) they had performed in this world.” [Bayhaqi, al-Bas wa’n-Nushur; Tabari, Tafsir; Abu Yala, Ibn Hajar,Fathu’l-Baari, Tabarani and others]

Ibn Katheer (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

What that means is that these two will be from among the progeny of Adam, and he will have other wives from among al-hoor al-‘een, as many as Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, wills. (Al-Bidaayah wa’n-Nihaayah (20/341).

Ibn Taymiyah has stated:-

It is soundly narrated that each man of the people of Paradise will have two wives from among human women, in addition to al-hoor al-‘een. (Majmoo‘ al-Fataawa (6/432).

My main Question Is: How Many women from the PROGENY OF ADAM will marry A Muslim Man In Jannah? Is there any authentic narration that specifies that?
