Nasreddin was born in rural Turkey around 1208. He became known as Hodja, the teacher. The stories about his adventures, his common sense, and droll sense of humor became true folk tales, told and retold by adults and children alike for over 700 years. They are known from Gibraltar to the Himalayas, from Timbuktu to Timor to Tajikistan, throughout the whole world touched by Islam.
