one of them protested that she was not worthy of the royal harem because Muhammad bin Qasim had already raped her.

should be given a cowhide immediately. (which meant a gruesome and gradual death with the skin shrinking) and
be sent back to Damascus. The Caliph’s grip on his subjects was so strong that his orders were obeyed immediately.

that Qasim was innocent, we have avenged the murder of our father. The Caliph immediately beheaded them.
