Qays ibn al-Mulawwah fell in love with Layla al-Aamiriya.

He soon began composing poems about his love for her, mentioning her name often.

Layla and Majnun meet for the last time before their deaths.

Both have fainted and Majnun's elderly messenger attempts to revive Layla while wild animals protect the pair from unwelcome intruders. Qays and Layla fall in love with each other when they are young, but when they grow up Layla’s father doesn't allow them to be together.

His unselfconscious efforts to woo the girl caused some locals to call him "Majnun." When he asked for her hand in marriage, her father refused because it would be a scandal for Layla to marry someone considered mentally unbalanced.

Soon after, Layla was married to another noble and rich merchant belonging to the Thaqif tribe in Ta'if.

He was described as a handsome man with reddish complexion whose name was Ward Althaqafi.

The Arabs called him Ward, meaning "rose" in Arabic.

The anecdotes are mostly very short, only loosely connected, and show little or no plot development.
