4-Mullaa Uses His Head

One time it so happened that the Mullaa Nasaruddeen displeasured the Sultaan, so the Sultaan asked one of his men to slay him and bring him his head.

The Mullaa was very upset with this order. He went to Birbal and asked him how to save himself. Birbal said, "It is a difficult situation but let me try. Rest is your luck." And he told him how to act.

The Mullaa, however, could persuade the man to take him alive to the court. Sultaan was very furious seeing Mullaa alive in his court. He asked the soldier, "Didn't I tell you to bring Mullaa's head to the Court, not the Mullaa himself?" The Mullaa Nasaruddeen said politely, "It is not his fault, Huzoor. I asked him to do so. You know whenever you want anything done, I don't trust anybody else lest it is badly done. So I thought let me do it myself. So I decided to bring my head myself on my shoulder. My head is here, Huzoor." and he bent his head in front of the Sultaan.

Akbar was very pleased with this defense that he allowed Mullaa to keep his head on his shoulder.

The End
