An Arab of the tribe of Tamim called Hammam b. Ghalib (al-Farazdaq) visited a clan not his own, the Banii Minqar, also belonging to Tamim. A woman, waking up her daughter called Zamya, found a snake in her clothes. She cried for help and Hammam chased the snake away. Hammam was attracted to the girl: he touched and kissed her, but she resisted and he left, making a mocking epigram on her and her clan. When her relatives heard this, they were angry and one of them called Amr (or Imran) b. Murra, was sent to play a trick upon Hammam' s sister, Jithin. Amr lay in wait for her and approached her unawares when, at night, she left her tent 'to do her business'. He put his hands on her hip and her leg and dragged her along for some distance. She cried out and when her tribesmen hastened to the scene Amr fled. In another version, there were, in fact, three other men, who together with Amr/lmran dragged Jithin from her tent.
