The opponent steals Ashik-Kerib's clothes. Other characters think Ashik-Kerib drowned. The poor musician gets to the Sultan and sings to him about his love. The Sultan really likes this song and gives Ashik-Kerib gold. For seven years he has been living in prosperity and has almost forgotten his fiancée.
