11 the noble society of Musaylima. lie said and en- joined that, after the birth of a son, the first observ- ance is not to approach one's wife; the woman and man ought lo turn their niind to God, and if one cannot effect it, he ought at least not to see his wife but once a day. According- to the second Farrik, .it is allowable to have intercourse with another wo- man, inasmuch as it is another sort of contract. < Muhamined Kuli said : 4< I saw Musaylima repeat- c£ edly in dreams, in which he disclosed what was 4t unknown to me, and said: When by orders of 'c Abu-bekr, Musaylima underwent the death of a tc martyr, and other Khalifs were movers of this " event, therefore the Almighty God made them tc suffer the curse of mankind; in the same manner " as he threw the Jews, on account of the murder 4'-of Jesus, into error and perdition. " The murderers of Musaylima are liars and vil- " lains, and so are the murderers of Said Al Sha- « haiHamzah."1 1 Hamzah was an uncle of Muhammed, and one of the first abettors of the prophet; he was killed by a servant of the Habeshi race, called Vah- shi, in the battle of Bedr fought by Muhammed against the Korcish, in the third year of the Hejira (A..D. (524); the same Vahshi killed Musay- lima with the same spear with which, he had pierced Banr/a.—-(Abut" feda, vol. I. pp.-93. 213).
