Their Marriage Agreement Bab 30

Feeling that they were about to carry out the captains` instructions, His Holiness threw himself on the sheikh and hugged him, again begging the captain to forgive the sheikh on his bill. Deeply moved by the benevolence and generosity shown by His Holiness, he accepted His request and submitted: My Master, this cursed man has hurt you more than anyone else, and therefore you must be even more zealous than others to see him perish. So why did you stop us? Such people are just hurting themselves, according to the Bb, and we must look at their actions with eyes covering sin.
