Around the world, for hundreds of years, passed down from parents to children, we are pleased to share the humor and wisdom of Mullah Nasreddin and other collected tales from Islamic folklore with you!
A collection of stories centering around the popular character Mullah Nasreddin, who is a well-loved character in the folklore and comic stories of a large number of Islamic cultures. In consultation with the Islamic Center of Olympia, we have collected and adapted the stories of this teacher who sometimes seems a fool and sometimes a hero. The stories about the mullah (which means teacher) have their origins from as far back as the 13th century where he may or may not have been a real person in Turkey. We celebrate our Muslim friends and neighbors with our retelling of these stories. In many countries and for hundreds of years these tales have been passed down from parents to children and now, we are pleased to share the humor and wisdom of Mullah Nasreddin and this journey with you!
