أي الأشياء خير

قيل لحكيم: أي الأشياء خير للمرء؟
فقال: عقل يعيش به!
فقالوا فإن لم يكن؟
فقال: إخوان يسترون عليه!
فقالوا وإن لم يكن؟
فقال: فمال يتحبب به إلى الناس!
فقالوا فإن لم يكن؟
فقال: فصمت يسلم به!
فقالوا فإن لم يكن؟
فقال: فموت يريح البلاد والعباد!

What's the better thing?

People asked a wise man: what's the better thing for a person to have?
He replied: a brain to live by it!
They said: so, what if he hasn't it?
He replied: brothers to shelter him!
They said: so, what if he hasn't it?
He replied: so, money to make people love him!
They said: so, what if he hasn't it?
He replied: a silence to make him safe.
They said: so, what if he hasn't it?
He replied: so, death to relieve people.

سقف يقرقع

سكن بعض الفقهاء في بيت سقفه يقرقع في كل وقت ، فجاءه صاحب البيت يطلب الأجرة ، فقال له: أصلح السقف أولاً فإنه يقرقع ، فقال صاحب البيت: لا تخف! فإنه يسبح لله! ، فقال الفقيه: أخشى أن تدركه رقه فيسجد!!

Cracking Ceiling

A scholar lived in a house has cracking ceiling and all the time this ceiling is clanking. So, when the owner of that house comes for the rent. The scholar said: you have to fix the ceiling first! It's cracking!!! The owner replied: don't be afraid! It's only praising GOD!!. The scholar replied then: but I'm afraid that it will be more humble and genuflect!!

Salaam, it's been awhile. Good to see you keep on posting.

I like this last one about the cracking ceiling: if it's a lesson, it tells us to tend to our responsibilities. If it's a joke, it's even better.

I've haven't noticed very many religious jokes among Muslims. Maybe it's just not common. I'd love to hear/read some.

Here's one: a cleric (no matter his religion) who was renowned for his humility and self-control took a walk in the country. A bird flew by and delivered some 'khara' on his head. He looked up, and said "Dear God, thank you for not giving cows wings"

Thank you, dear. Isn't it so much better to laugh at the imperfect humans that we are than to accuse each other of evil ?

Yes Indeed! you said it yourself dear "imperfect humans",, so people write or do something we as humans see it not right and we have to criticize and try to fix what can lead to big problems.
sometimes, we have to speak and try to find answers for what confuse us or to explain the unexplainable.
