Shoes Not Book Of Philosophy



 It was a day of Idd and Bahlool went to a mosque for prayers. There was multitude of people and the place was getting congested. When he arrived at the door, there were large number of shoes and sandles scattered around.

Since his shoes wen stolen before, he feared he might again lose them if he did not take care this time. Hence he took out a handkerchief and covering around his shoes, he entered the mosque and sat in one corner. A man sitting near him seeing a parcel covered and being taken care of said to Bahlool:

"I guess you are holding a valuable book. Can you tell me of what subject it is?"

Bahlool replied:

"It is on philosophy."

The man then asked him; "Where and from which bookshop you have purchased?" Bahlool replied:

"From a shoe-maker shop have I purchased"
