The group was surprised on the wedding night when the governess of Antar and Ablah declared they were siblings and that marriage was forbidden to them. Antar was overcome with sadness. He went into the desert where he encountered a band of Arabs under attack by the Romans. Antar observed in their ranks a brave warrior captured by the Romans after a fierce battle. The news reached his family and clan and they rushed to help him fight the Romans. They were joined by other Arab tribes. After a violent fight between these united Arab tribes and the Romans the matter ended with an Arab victory. The governess admitted she had fabricated the story that Antar and Ablah were siblings because of the demand by the prince who had hired her to separate the lovers because he wanted to marry Ablah.
