The Story of David & Michael

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Two guys were lost in the Sahara Desert.  One was David, the other was Michael.  They were suffering from hunger and thirst when they suddenly came upon an oasis, with what looked like a mosque in the middle.

David said to Michael, “Look, let's pretend we are Muslims, otherwise we’ll not get any food or drink.  I am going to call myself ‘Mohammed.’”

Michael refused to change his name.  He said, “My name is Michael, and I will not pretend to be other than but what I am - Michael.”

The imam of the mosque received both well and asked about their names.  David said, “My name is Mohammed.”

Michael said, “My name is Michael.”

The imam turned to the helpers of the mosque and said, “Please bring some food and water for Michael only.”  Then he turned to the other and said, “as-Saalamu’ Alaykum Mohammed.  Ramadhan Mubarak.”
