Chapter 5, Tale of Ghanim Bin Ayyub, the Distraught, the Thrall O' Love Summary

In Damascus lived a wealthy merchant with a son named Ghanim bin Ayyub and a daughter named Fitnah, and it came to pass that the merchant died. His son, Ghanim, took loads of silks, brocades and other items to sell in Baghdad where he lived for a year. One night, upon returning from the funeral of a fellow merchant, Ghanim found the city gates locked, so he entered a courtyard tomb to spend the night. Three slaves enter the courtyard with a chest, a lantern, an adze, and a basket full of mortar. The three slaves set down their stolen goods and agree to rest awhile and tell how they became eunuchs.
