The Stingy Man

Translated by: Ato Farok (Student)

Once a visitor came to a stingy man while there was a loaf of bread and a bowl of honey infront of him. The stingy man took away the bread and intented to take away the honey but he thought that the visitor would not eat the honey without bread.
So he said to the visitor, " Do you think you'll eat the honey without the bread?"
The visitor replied "Yes", and he started to partake one spoon of honey after another.
The stingy man said, " By Allah my brother! Don't you know that a lot of honey can burn the heart?"
The visitor replied, " You're right, but not my heart, your heart".

MORAL : Stingyness is a disgraceful trait!
