Statement and Belief

One day, while he was Imam, Nasrudin forgot the text of his sermon and blurted out:

‘Allah created the world in six months!’

Later, a scholar came to correct the mistake:

‘The Qur’an states that it took just six days to create the world.’

‘Listen, brother,’ replied the Mulla, ‘you and I know that that is the case, but there is no way that a flock as illiterate as mine is going to believe that!’
