Mulla Nasrudin

Allah will provide

   ‘Allah will provide,’ said Nasrudin one day to a man who was
complaining that someone had stolen some cash from his house.
   The man expressed doubt.
   Nasrudin took him to the mosque, and rolled on the ground,
calling upon Allah to restore the man’s twenty silver coins.
   Annoyed by his presence, the congregation made a collection
and the sum was handed to the surprised loser.
   ‘You may not understand the means which operate in this world.’
said the Mullah, ‘but I trust that you understand the end when it is
handed to you in such a concrete form.’
