him. Then Hassan Ibn Thabit said:
Hearken, send a messenger to Khuzai, That fidelity removes blemish, You are the best of (the children) of 'Uthmán IbnAmr,
And when virtues are mentioned you possess the best of them;
And you offered bayah to the Apostle and it was a virtue; That led you to virtue, and prosperity led you there, It should not render you helpless, what you cannot forbear, Of things and that should not render the 'Ada helpless. [P. 39] He (Ibn Sa'd) said:Ada was the branch (of Muzaynah) to
which he belonged. He (Ibn Sa’d) said: On this Khuza’i stood up and
said: 0 people ! the poet of the (great) man has specially addressed you, so
I exhort you in the name of Allah. They said: We will not let you down.
He (Ibn Sad) said: Tney embraced Islam and waited on the Prophet, may Allah bless him. The Apostle of Allah, gave the banner of Muzaynah on the day of Victory of Makkah to Khuzai and on that day their
number was one thousand persons. He (Khuzai) was the brother of the father ofAbd Allah Ibn al-Mughaffal and brother of `Abd Allah, Dhu alBajadin
