Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

Muslim Joke Worth Sharing

Have you heard the one about the eleventh-century Sufi mystic whose prayers were interrupted by a familiar voice? “Oh, Abul-Hasan!” it boomed. “Do you want me to tell people what I know about your sins, so that they stone you to death?” “Oh, Lord,” Abul-Hasan whispered back. “Do you want me to tell people what I know about your mercy, so that none will ever feel obliged to bow down to you again?” “Keep your secret,” came God’s conspiratorial reply. “And I will keep mine.”

“Hu”. Hu is a word used to denote God in a mystical way in Sufism. This inscription that reads hu is found on an old gravestone from Ottoman era. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
