Hassan, the Sultan of the
Bani-Amers, relented. He said:
"Try to retain your health, my noble friend
And let me bring a doctor to your side,
To treat your wounds until you can ride,
You can then pay me visits in my home,
And I to yours shall also come.
The sufferings caused by you we shall forget,
We shall be truthful friends, hope for the best."
