More than ever it was obvious that the hakim was a very simple man.
Reply to this sameh hakim thanx marwa for this great page and for ur efforts with our group sameh hakim
As a hakim -- a man of medicine -- he could fill a long-felt want; but by the brand on his accouterments he walked an openly avowed robber, and that made him a brother in crime.
"Yet, to enter Khinjan Caves you had to slay a man, hakim or no!"
They began to remember that the hakim might after all be a trickster, and to realize how much too friendly -- how almost intimate he had been with the sahibs at Ali Masjid.
Like the others, he seemed decided in his mind that the hakim ought not to be allowed much chance to escape.
"Shall I leave my brother in the lurch?" the hakim asked them; and though they murmured, they thought better of him for it.
Mere mention of the place made them regard Orakzai Pathan and hakim with new respect, as having right of entry through the forbidden gate.
Some even began to urge the hakim not to wait for the Orakzai Pathan, but to start with what he had.
"If none know where the hakim is, how shall the hakim earn a living?"
