Nasreddin and The Horse


One day Nasreddin’s donkey was ill, so he borrowed a horse from an officer. 

It was a big, strong animal, and usually nobody rode it except the officer. 

It tried to throw Nareddin off, but he stayed on it. 

Then it suddenly began to run away with him. 

He tried to turn it towards his house, and he tried to stop it, but it continued to run the opposite way.

One of Nasreddin’s friends was working in his field and saw him riding very fast towards this friend’s house. 

He thought, ‘Why is Nasreddin riding so fast? Perhaps he has some bad news. Perhaps he is riding to my house to give me some bad news !’

He was frightened and shouted to Nasreddin, ‘Nasreddin!Nasreddin! What is the matter? Where are you going?’

‘I don’t know!’ 

Nasreddin shouted back. ‘This stupid animal hasn’t told me!’

Nasreddin and The Man

Every Saturday, Nasreddin went to the market to buy food and other things. 

He put them in a big basket, but he was old and weak, so he always paid another man to carry the basket home for him. 

But one Saturday, while he was walking home in front of the man with the basket, them man ran away with it.

The next Saturday, when Nasreddin went to the market again, a friend of his said, ‘Look, there he is! That man stole your things last week!’

Nasreddin at once hid behind a shop, and stayed there until the man left the market.

His friend was very surprised. ‘Why did you do that?’ he asked.


‘Well,’ said Nasreddin, ‘that man was carrying my basket when he left me a week ago. He will want me to pay him for seven days’ work and that will cost me more than a basket full of things!’

Nasreddin and The Door

Once, when Nasreddin was a boy, his mother went out for a picnic. 

Before she went, she said to him, Nasreddin, while I am away, stay near the door, and watch it all the time.’ 

She said this because there were a lot of thieves in their town.

Nasreddin sat down beside the door. After an hour one of his uncles came.

He said to Nasreddin, ‘Where is your mother?’

‘At a picnic’, he answered.

‘Well,’ said the uncle, ‘we are going to visit your house this evening. Go and tell her!’

His uncle then went away, and Nasreddin began to think. ‘Mother said, “Watch the door all the time!” and Uncle said, “Go and tell her”!’


He thought and thought, then at last, he pulled the door down, put it on his back and went to his mother with it!

Nasreddin and The Dead Man


Nasreddin was sitting by a window in his house one day in the middle of winter, when he heard women outside crying. 

He put his head out of the window, and saw a lot of people coming towards his house. 

They were carrying a dead man, and the women were crying, ‘Oh, why are you leaving us to go to a place without light and without a fire and without food? It will be dark there, and you will be cold and hungry. Nobody will look after you, nobody will kind to you, and nobody will love you there!’


‘My God!’ said Nasreddin to his wife. ‘They are talking about our house. 

They are bringing the dead man here! Quick lock the door! Don’t let him in!’

Nasreddin and The Rain 

One day when Nasreddin was travelling, he came to a village. The people there said to him, ‘We have had no rain for three months, and we have no water. Our corn is dying. Please help us! Pray for rain!’

Nasreddin wanted to help these poor people, so he asked for a bucket of water. There was very little water in the village, but each family gave a little, and they filled a bucket and gave it to  Nasreddin.

Then Nasreddin took off his shirt and began to wash it. The people were surprised and angry. ‘That water was for our children to drink, and you are wasshing your shirt in it!’

But Nasreddin said, ‘Wait!’ He hung the shirt up to dry, and at once it began to rain.


‘I have only one shirt,’ he said to the surprised people, ‘and when I wash it and hang it up to dry, it always rains.

The Conspiracy


Three people were walking along a street, first a big man then a pretty woman, and then an old gentleman. 

The first two went round a corner. 

Suddenly the gentleman saw a piece of paper on the ground. He picked it up. It was five pounds. 

A few seconds later, the young woman came back. She was crying. ‘I have dropped five pounds,’ she said.


‘Don’t cry’, said the gentleman. ‘Here it is.’ 

The young woman thanked him and went away. After a few seconds, the big man came back. 

He was looking for something. Suddenly a window opened and a small man looked out. ‘I saw five pounds fall from your pocket, he said, ‘but that man gave it to a young woman.’ 

The big man was very angry. The gentleman  was frightened and gave him another five pounds. 

When he had gone, the young woman came back to get her one sixty-seven pence, and the small man came out to get his.

Nasreddin and The Fish


Nasreddin liked fish very much, and when he had enough money, he bought some for his dinner when he went to the market, and took it home. 

But when his wife saw the fish, she always said to herself, ‘Good! Now I will invite my friends to lunch and we will eat this fish. They like fish very much.’

So when Nasreddin came home in the evening after his work, the fish was never there, and his wife always said, ‘Oh, your cat ate it! She is a very bad animal!’ 

And she gave Nasreddin soup and rice for his dinner.


But one evening when this happened, Nasreddin became very angry. 

He took the cat and his wife to the shop near his housee and weihed the cat carefully. 

Then he turned to his wife and said, ‘My fish weighed two kilos. 

This cat weighs two kilos too. 

My fish is here, you say. Then where is my cat?’

The Best Singer in The World


One day when Nasreddin was having a bath, he began to sing. The bathroom was small and had a stone floor, so his song was very beautiful, he thought.

‘Oh,’ he said, ‘I sing very well. I will sing to other people too, and perhaps I will become a famous singer, and everybody in the world will want to hear me.’

So after his bath Nasreddin went up on to the flat roof of the house and began to sing his song very loudly. But he did not like it very much when he sang it there.

A man was walking across the square in front of the house, and when he heard Nasreddin, he said, ‘ What are you doing? You are making a terrible noise. Nobody wants to hear it.’


‘Oh, you think so, do you?’ answered Nasreddin. ‘Well, I really sing very beautifully. 

Come to my bathroom and you will hear me.’

The Police and The Thief


The police in the big city were looking for a thief. At last they caught him. 

But while they were taking photographs of him-from the front, from the left, from the right, with a hat, without a hat – he suddenly attacked the policemen and ran off. 

They tried to catch him, but he got away.

Then a week later the telephone rang in the police-station, and somebody said, ‘You are looking for Bill Cross, aren’t you?’

‘Yes.’

‘Well, he left here for Waterbridge an hour ago.’

Waterbridge was a small town 150 kilometres from the city. 

The city police at once sent four different photographs of the thief to the police in Waterbridge.


Less than twelve hours later they got a telephone call from from the police in Waterbridge. ‘We have caught three of the men,’ they said happily, ‘and we will catch the fourth this evening, we think’.

Cerita Pendek dalam berbahasa Inggris


Mrs Jones was still cleaning the house when her husband came back from work. 

She was wearing dirty, old clothes and no stockings, her hair was not tidy, she had dust on her face, and she looked dirty and tired. 

Her husband looked at her and said, ‘Is this what I come home to after a hard day’s work?’


Mrs jones’s neighbour, Mrs Smith, was there. When she heard Mr Jones’s words, she quickly said goodbye and ran back to her carefully, put on her best dress and her prettiest stockings, painted her face, and waited for her husband to come home.

When he arrived, he was hot and tired. He walked slowly into the house, saw his wife and stopped. Then he souted angrily, “And where are you going this evening?’
