Nasriddin Stories

Nasruddin stories are famous throughout the Islamic world. Nasruddin is a comic figure, but his humour works on different levels. His ancestry is claimed by Iran, Afghanistan and Turkey. It can be said that although the stories are set in the imagery and backdrop of Islamic society, that their appeal is universal. I intend to present these stories at regular intervals. They contribute much to the world's comedic folklore and self understanding. Sphere: Related Content
