Nasruddin not wanting to lend his donkey to the neighbor he didn't like, told him, "I would love to loan you my donkey, but only yesterday my brother came from the next town to use it to carry his wheat to the mill to be ground. The donkey sadly is not here. But he thanked Nasruddin and began to walk away. Just as he got a few steps away, Mullah Nasruddin's donkey, which was in the back of his compound the whole time, let out a loud bray.

The neighbor turned to Nasruddin and said, "Mullah Sahib, I thought you told me that your donkey was not here.

Me or the donkey? He is as famous in India as our very own Tenaliraman, a folk hero of South India, who was a wise man and the court poet of King Krishnadevaraya of the Vijayanagara Empire in the 16th century, if not more.

Being from a Bengali family, I have read his tales in my mother-tongue which is Bangla, and the thought never crossed my mind, until very recently that Mulla Nasruddin is a foreigner!

Sufis have found that jokes can assist the traveler. But Sufism is sometimes mislabeled as "Islamic Mysticism," especially by the West. Idries Shah tried to show that it is not so.

That Sufism is not tied to only Muslim countries or any particular religion and that it has included and continues to include members of all faiths.

In Afghanistan, Iran and other Islamic countries, the tales of Mulla Nasruddin are told as bedtime stories or mere jokes because children find these tales funny, but the wise people use these same jokes and tales as paths of knowledge.

The Nasruddin stories, known throughout the Middle East, constitute one of the strangest achievements in the history of metaphysics. Superficially, most of the Nasruddin stories may be used as jokes. They are told and retold endlessly in the teahouses and caravanserais, in the homes and on the radio waves, of Asia.

But it is inherent in the Nasruddin story that it may be understood at any of many depths. There is the joke, the moral - and the little extra which brings the consciousness of the potential mystic a little further on the way to realization. Children in Afghanistan grow up listening to these tales. In Afghanistan, these tales are considered to be one of the best ways to imbibe values in growing children. This tale goes something like this: But, since Mullah did not prepare a sermon, he stands in front of the people praying in the mosque and asks them: So, enraged Mullah Nasrudin said: Go home and come back better prepared next week.

He got up and asked the same question. The people all raised their hands because they did not want to appear stupid.

Since you all know, then I won't have to tell you. We'll see you when you come back next week! When he asked the question, they looked at each other with knowing looks and half of them raised their hands, and half didn't. Children shake their heads in negative.

So Mulla leaves the classroom saying if no one knows what he is going to teach, then no point in teaching them at all! The next day again Mulla asked the same question, and this time students were scared that he would leave again, so they unanimously said "yes.

So once again Mulla left the classroom saying "those of you who know tell those of you who don't know what I was going to say! Sufis use these stories as teaching exercises even today.

Mulla Nasruddin tales have even become part of the curriculum of some schools in India. Sometimes Nasruddin tales are arranged in the form of aphorisms, some examples that I found online are as follows: Yet, nobody would download my house when I showed them a brick from it.

Mulla Nasruddin used to carry a door with him wherever he went. When somebody asked him about it, he replied: Nobody can enter my house except through the door. So I carry the door. Such are some of the sayings or teachings of Mulla Nasruddin that are still applicable in the context of the modern world.

Mulla Nasruddin himself plays the role of a wise man or an idiot, to show us how the human mind works in a particular situation and also to make us realize the obvious that we so often miss or are not aware of.

In this way, Mulla Nasruddin teaches us how to live, what not to do, without explicitly criticizing, because open criticism, would immediately bring out resistance in people, hence preventing them from learning. This can be better explained through this particular tale of Mulla Nasruddin. The neighbour returned them, together with one extra one — a very tiny pot.

Shortly afterward Nasrudin borrowed his neighbour's pots but did not return them. The man came round to get them back. And when one reads a tale of Mulla Nasruddin, one can see his or her life reflections in there and thus can make his or her interpretations.

And most of them are actually pretty funny. My favourite is the following. Nasrudin the Sufi holy fool, who is the hero of most of the stories , is walking past the lake, when he sees a wild-looking guy sitting by the bank with a big jar and a spoon.

When he gets closer, Nasrudin sees that he's spooning yoghurt into the water. After a while the whole lake will turn into yoghurt, I'll be able to sell it to everyone in town, and I'll be rich! That evening at the tea-house, he tells a friend that poor Abdul has clearly gone mad.

The next day, the friend is out walking past another lake, and he can't believe his eyes. There's Nasrudin, and he's spooning yoghurt into the water! You know you can't make yoghurt that way! This later turns out to be relevant to the plot. Here's the episode in question, which I hadn't seen before: Nasrudin is scheduled to preach in the mosque. He stands up in front of the congregation, and asks "So, do you know what I'm going to say?Shelves: islam-and-arabic , linguistics-and-philosophy , well-i-think-its-funny , strongly-recommended If one of your main objections to the Bible is that it kind of lacks humour, then check this out.
