The Lost Key

Sufi Stories


Mulla Nasruddin was searching for something in his garden. When his neighbour asked him what he was searching, he replied that he was looking for his house key.

Wanting to help him, his neighbour joined him asking : ''Do you remember where you dropped it?''

Mulla answered: 'Of course I do, in my house.'

'Why are you looking here?', asked his neighbour confused.

Mulla Nasrudin replied: 'Because there is much more light here than in my house.'
