He met him and said: Muhammad, I can protect (one) who is under the influence of charm, and Allaah cures one whom He so desires at my hand. Do you desire (this)? Upon this the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Praise is due to Allaah, we praise Him, ask His help; and he whom Allaah guides aright there is none to lead him astray, and he who is led astray there is none to guide him, and I bear testimony to the fact that there is none worthy of worship (in truth) but Allaah, He is One, having no partner with Him, and that Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger. Now after this he (Dimad) said: Repeat these words of yours before me, and the messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) repeated these to him thrice; and he said I have heard the words of soothsayers and the words of magicians, and the words of poets, but I have never heard such words as yours, and they reach the depth (of the ocean of eloquence) ; bring forth your hand so that I should take oath of fealty to you on Islam.

He said: It is on behalf of my people too. The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) sent an expedition and the flying column passed by his people.
