Maytham was tied to the date palm trunk.
Amru bin Huraith saw him. Amru remembered Maytham's words:
I'll be your neighbour. Treat me kindly.
So, Amru bin Huraith ordered one of his daughters to sweep the ground around the date-palm trunk. He also ordered her to splash it with water.
A person looked at Maytham and said:
Disown Ali to save your soul!
Maytham said with a smile:
By Allah, this date palm has been created for me! And I've been created for it!
Thus, people knew the secret of Maytham's visit to the date palm throughout the long years.
