Unable to get it himself, al-Talib hires Aladdin, who secures the lamp but keeps it when he realizes al-Talib’s wickedness. With wealth obtained through wishes, he courts the princess. After the lamp changes hands between al-Talib and Aladdin, al-Talib steals it and abducts the princess to the desert. He follows with only a gourd of water. Suffering from thirst and exhaustion, and nearly succumbs, but the horsemen of the Sultan, who learned of his daughter’s abduction, ride up and rescue him.
