Taxi Drivers go to Paradise

Mullah Nasruddien dies due to old age. Upon entering heaven’s gate, there is another man in front, waiting to go into heaven. The Angel asks the man, "What is your name what did you accomplish during your life?". The man responds "My name is Abdulrahman Muhammed, and I was a Taxi driver in Lahore Pakistan for 14 years" "Very well," says The Angel, "Here is your silk robe and golden scepter, now you may walk in the streets of Paradise." The Angel looks at the Mullah, and asks "What is your name and what did you accomplish?" He responds, "I'm Mullah Nasruddien , and have devoted the last 62 years to Allah". "Very well," says The Angel, "Here is your cotton robe and wooden staff, you may enter." "Wait a minute," says Mullah Nasruddien, "You gave the taxi driver a silk robe and golden scepter, why did I only get a cotton robe and wooden staff?". "Well," The Angel replied, "We work on a performance scale, you see while you preached, everyone slept, when he drove taxis, everyone prayed!"

Not as bad as the Kraft cream cheese commercials where some angels are servants of other angels (no reason given).

Nice blog!

Muslims definitely need to laugh more, and your story did just that.

Muslims are under such stress these days, it is nice to smile and laugh and in a halal manner too.

Too much of comedy today is obscene, but this proves that Muslim comedy can be clean and funny.

I like watching Allah Made Me Funny. They are 3 brothers who tour the US and do comedy skits on stage.

I think you can find some of their videos on Google Video.

Thanks again for the funny post!
