The falcon

Al-Saqr : denotes two things : one of them is a noble and unjust Sultan mentioned, and the second is Ibn Rafi . And whoever saw a hawk followed him, a brave man was angry at him . It was narrated that a man came to Sa`id ibn al-Musayyib and said : I saw on the balconies of the mosque a white dove, and I was amazed at its goodness, so a falcon came and endured it . Ibn Al-Musayyib said : If you believe your vision, Al-Hajjaj will marry Abdullah bin Jaafar . How little went on until he married her, and he was told : O Abu Muhammad, how did you get this? He said : Because the dove is a woman, and the white is pure, so I did not see any of the women who were purer than the girl of a bird in heaven, and I looked at the falcon, and then it was an Arab bird that was not one of the foreign birds, and I did not see among the Arabs a hawk of al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf .
