Don't Miss

Nasreddin Hodja was the imam at the time and he was giving a sermon. The topic was women’s make-up. The Hodja was advising the all-male congregation never to let their wives paint their faces.

“It is evil and wicked! It is impure and indecent!” he was lecturing, “My fellow men, don’t allow your wives to put kohl on their eyebrows and crimson powder on their cheeks. It is sinful!”

“But Hodja Effendi,” the audience objected, “your own wife always paints her face.”

“True, true,” Nasreddin Hodja smiled, “it looks good on her, doesn’t it?”
