Mulla Nasruddin on a Husband & Wife from Heaven

Mulla Nasruddin on a husband and wife from heaven

One day, Mulla Nasruddin looked at his wife and said, “Do you know that both you and I are from the people of Paradise?”

His wife was confused by this sudden statement and asked, “How come?”

Mulla Nasruddin replied, “Well, when I look at you and how ugly Allah has made you, I’m patient… and the patient are people of Paradise.

“Likewise, when you look at me and how handsome Allah has made me, you’re thankful… and the thankful are people of Paradise…”

[from a short (serious) work by Mufti Rafi Usmani]
