Nasreddin, also known in Egypt as GOHA was a Seljuq satirical Sufi, believed to have lived and died during the 13th century in Akşehir, near Konya, a capital of the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum, in today's Turkey. He is considered a populist philosopher and wise man, remembered for his funny stories and anecdotes. He appears in thousands of stories, sometimes witty, sometimes wise, but often, too, a fool or the butt of a joke. A Nasreddin story usually has a subtle humor and a pedagogic nature. The International Nasreddin Hodja fest is celebrated between 5 and 10 July in his hometown every year.
In Arabic-speaking countries this character is known as "Juha", "Djoha", "Djuha", "Dschuha", "Giufà", "Chotzas", "Goha" (juḥā). Juha was originally a separate folk character found in Arabic literature as early as the 9th century, and was widely popular by the 11th century. Lore of the two characters became amalgamated in the 19th century when collections were translated from Arabic into Turkish and Persian.
The Nasreddin stories are known throughout the Middle East and have touched cultures around the world. Superficially, most of the Nasreddin stories may be told as jokes or humorous anecdotes. They are told and retold endlessly in the teahouses and caravanserais of Asia and can be heard in homes and on the radio. But it is inherent in a Nasreddin story that it may be understood at many levels. There is the joke, followed by a moral and usually the little extra which brings the consciousness of the potential mystic a little further on the way to realization.
Once Nasreddin was invited to deliver a sermon. When he got on the pulpit, he asked, "Do you know what I am going to say?" The audience replied "no", so he announced, I have no desire to speak to people who don't even know what I will be talking about! and left.
The people felt embarrassed and called him back again the next day. This time, when he asked the same question, the people replied yes. So Nasreddin said, "Well, since you already know what I am going to say, I won't waste any more of your time! and left."
Now the people were really perplexed. They decided to try one more time and once again invited the Mulla to speak the following week. Once again he asked the same question "Do you know what I am going to say?" Now the people were prepared and so half of them answered "yes" while the other half replied "no". So Nasreddin said Let the half who know what I am going to say, tell it to the half who don't, and left.
Egyptians have become like GOHA. This attitude has enabled the JUNTA not only to rule, but also to do as they please. HOW? The story goes as follows…
Once upon a time, a man shouting and running came from the farthest part of the village where GOHA live. “Goha, Goha, have you not heard?”. “Heard What!”, Goha wondered. “Heard of what is happening in the villag”, the man answered. “And what is happening?”, Goha asked, carelessly though. “Goha, I heard that fornication, Goha, has become rampant in the village”, Goha answered, shrugging his shoulders as a sign of carelessness, “I do not really care as it is not happening in my side of the village”, and then Goha left, nudging the two sides of his donkey hastening it to go.
A week lapsed and the same man saw Goha walking. He then approached him and said, “Goha, now fornication has invaded your side of the village”. Goha as usual shrugged his shoulders and said, “I do not care as long as I do not see it in the quarter where I live”, and went his way.
A month lapsed and the same man caught a sight of Goha who was on his way to the village market. So he ran to him and said, “Now it is it has invaded your quarter, Goha”. Goha inquisitively asked the man, “What invaded my Quarter?”. The man answered “Fornication , Goha”. Goha just waved his in the air as a sign of being bored and said, “Do I care? It has not yet reached the street where I live”
Another moth lapsed and the same man saw Goha sitting on a chair in front of his house. “Goha!”, the man shouted. Goha looked at him and asked him, “what now?”. The man answered, “I do not care”, Goha answered and then added after making funny noise, “as long as it has not reached my house”
A week lapsed and the same man knocked on Goha’s door. When Goha opened he door, the man whispered to him, “Are you alone?”. Goha wondered and asked the man, “Why?”. The man said. Still whispering, “I wanted to tell you that fornication is now in your own house”
The man expected that Goha will now react differently, but Goha looked at him, smiling and whispered back to him, “I does not matter as long as it is away from my butt”
What an attitude! What a nation! Keep being careless, coward, passive, scared, and in a very short time you will become slaves and beyond.
Wha a shame
