There was a terrible draught. After a long
deliberation, the villagers decided to approach
Nasrudin, who though considered eccentric, was
known to work miracles on occasion, and ask
for his intervention in bringing the life
The whole community went over to Nnasrudin's hut
at the village's outskirts, and the elders stepped
forward and stated their request.
Sorry", said Nasrudin. "Tthere will be no miracle -
you have no faith."
"But Nasrudin, how can you say that?" said the surprised
villagers. "After all, is it not our faith, that
brought us to your door, begging for help?"
"No" said Nasrudin, "If you really had faith -
you would have come with umbrellas!"
