"Ibn Mubarak narrates after becoming the Khalifa, Harun fell in love with a slave girl. He wanted to sleep with her, but she said 'It is not permissible for you to do so, as I slept with your father Hadi. As Harun was besotted by the woman he called al-Qadi Abu Yusuf and asked him for a means via which he could satisfy his lust. The Qadi said: 'She is just a slave woman. Should you accept whatever she says? No. Do not accept her words as true'. So the Caliph satisfied his desire.
Ibn Mubarak comments: "I do not know who among these three was more surprising: the Caliph who put his hand into the blood and property of the Muslims and did not respect his step-mother; or the slave woman who refused to grant the desire of the Caliph; or the Qadi who allowed the Caliph to dishonour his father and sleep with that concubine who was his step-mother.'"
