Tariq ibn Rashid was the cousin of Achmed ibn Yahya and a merchant on the Street of David. He had lamps of fine craftmanship; oils of the purest quality; fragrant herbs that sweeten the air and lend freshness to even the foulest rooms; scented oils for sweetness of the body that would moisten the skin and inflame passions; vases and bottles made by the finest artisans with delicate colors; and charcoal.
Once his cousin promised him to bring him a relic of Saint Tariq from his pilgrimage but failed to do so. As a punishment, Tariq cursed him as an oathbreaker and would not sell him a broom for no price. Achmed offered a good amount of money but still, his inn was overcome with filth and could not open it for anyone. Not only that but he kept it in plain sight and refused to sell it because it annoyed Achmed.
- "A genuine relic! IT is not as pleasurable as receiving it from my cousin, Achmed, but... I will give you 1 dirham."
