He said, "O children of Ishmael! Throw (arrows), for your father was an archer. I am on the side of Bani so-and-so," (meaning one of the two teams). The other team stopped throwing, whereupon the Prophet said, "What has happened to them?" They replied, "How shall we throw while you are with Bani so-and-so?" He said, "Throw for I am with all of you."
