The Woman in the Locked House

In ‘Mashari’ al-Ashwaq’ (2/239), Ibn an-Nahhas related from Abu Bakr bin al-‘Arabi:

“Some of the rulers had made a pact with the disbelievers that they would not hold any prisoners. So, a Muslim man one day travelled near their lands and passed by a locked house. He could hear a woman calling from inside the house: “I am a prisoner! Tell your companions about me!”

When he went back and told the people about this woman, the ruler did not even let him finish the story. He immediately got up and walked on foot to the frontlines until he freed this woman and conquered the area where she had been held captive.”
