12854Mullah Nasrudin and the Scholars
- Apr 5, 2004Once the Mulla was invited to dinner by a group of scholars. When he
arrived, he found the other guests in a heated debate concerning
destiny vs. free will.
As time went by and the argument seemed endless, the Mulla was getting
hungrier by the minute; The aroma from the kitchen became unbearable.
Nasrudin stood up and said "If I prove beyond a shadow of doubt that
man is predestined, can we then begin our dinner?"
At this, the rest fell silent.
The Mulla then said "I can say, with absolute certainty, that every
man present here today is predestined to die."
Dinner was promptly served.
