Information sheet

Muslim Humor

Islam is well acquainted with humor, and Muslims can laugh! This book proves it. This collection of Muslim jokes, collected from many countries and varied time periods, reflects the variety within Islam – from Mullah Nasreddin tall tales that stem from Persian to the trickster Goha in the Arab Near East to contemporary jokes.

In the introduction, Hadayatullah Hübsch discusses the humor of the Prophet Mohammed according to tradition, and provides a brief overview of the humorous literature in Islam.
A wide-ranging collection of Muslim jokes
A panopticum of Muslim humor
A sheik was once asked how old he was. He replied, »Forty years.« After several years he was asked again by the same person how old he was. Again he answered, »Forty years.« When he was reminded that he had said the same thing years earlier, he responded: »I don’t change my mind every five minutes. One man, one word.«
Someone once asked a preacher to give an interpretation of the Koran verse that says that there is relief after every great effort (surah 94, verse 7). He answered: “When someone comes to visit me, it requires effort to invite him to dine, but when he explains the he is fasting today, that is a relief.«
