I love the tales of Mullah Nasrudin.
They come from many cultures and lands including Albania, China, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Turkey, Uzbekistan and India to name just a few.
He’s a deceptively simple character with a unique way of looking at the world. You can enjoy his stories as simple humour, or read a little deeper for a valuable life lesson. Either way, you’ve got to smile at his antics. So when the world gets a little too dark to bear, Mullah Nasruddin saves my day.
I’m collecting his stories from all over the web for my personal amusement. Please feel free to contribute any you might come across.
The Moon or the Sun
Nasrudin is sitting in a café, when one of his neighbours walks by and asks, “So tell me, which is more important to people – the Moon or the Sun?”
“The Moon, of course!” Nasrudin replied.
“Why is that?” asked the neighbour.
“Well, when do you think we need light more – in the day or at night?” replied Nasrudin.
