Dual Disasters

Into the palace in Samarkand rushed a messenger telling the Emperor news of famine in a country far away.

“Famine has not touched my lands in all the time I have been emporer. Thanks be to Allah,” declared the Emperor.

Said Nasrudin, “Allah does indeed work great mysteries, but He even would not visit two disasters upon Samarkand at the same time.”
