Mulla Nasrudin

Prayer is better than sleep

   As soon as he had intoned the Call to Prayer from his minaret, the Mulla
was seen rushing away from the mosque.
   Someone shouted: ‘Where are you going, Nasrudin?’
   The Mulla yelled back: ‘That was the most penetrating call I have ever given.
I’m going as far away as I can to see at what distance it can be heard.’
