Syed and I were waiting for our order to be delivered on our table in Taj Mahal Restaurant in Sultana Street. We had already washed our hands and were eagerly waiting to start attacking the Veg Fried Rice of that Hyderabadi Restaurant.As were sitting, Syed reminded me of the interesting joke that he had told me earlier. Certain jokes are like that! How many times we may hear, still they cause us to burst out into laughter. This was one of them.An Islami scholar was sitting to have food with another person. There came the fod plate, with rice on one side and chicken on the other. It happened to be that rice was on the scholars side and chicken was on the other person’s side. After thinking for a moment, the scholar turned the plate to make chicken on his side!Seeing this unexpected behavior from the scholar, the other man obviously asked, “Scholar, why did you do that?”. To his surprise, the answer came instantly. “You know, the legs of the chicken was facing the Qibla, that’s why I turned it towards the opposite side!”. Ha ha ha!Note: For those who don’t understand what is Qibla, it is the direction facing which Muslims pray (towards Ka’ba in Makkah), and it is advised that the believers should not place their foot facing the Qibla.
