Berikut ini adalah Kumpulan Cerita Berbahasa Inggris, silakan baca di bawah ini :

Nasreddin wanted to plant pumpkins. He spread pumpkin seeds in his fields. He told his wife, "I will plant them in two gardens. One garden is for us; the other is for God. I will sell the harvest of God's pumpkins and give the money to orphanage and the poor people as our alms."

"Amen," said his wife.

Then he planted his own pumpkin seeds on the very fertile garden but he planted the God's pumpkin seeds in the arid infertile garden. Several months later Nasreddin was disappointed to see his pumpkins did not grow well although he had planted them in the fertile garden. Many of them even died. On the other hand, he saw that the God's pumpkins could grow well and had much more fruits.

Nasreddin decided to steal the God's pumpkins. The following night he prepared a big sack and broke into the God's garden.                 There he picked 20 big pumpkins and put them into the sack.

So far, he never realised that he has been followed by five men. They always kept an eye on him. When Nasreddin tried to find a rope to tie up the sack, he left the sack for a while. Quickly the five men stole the sack that was full of big pumpkins.

A moment later Nasreddin went back. He was very frightened to find that his sack was missing. Soon he ran home. He said to his wife, "He caught me red-handed. He had caught me red-handed while I was stealing His pumpkins."

Nasreddin was walking home alone. The evening was coming and it was getting darker. Nasreddin thought it was the time for a Moslem to take a pray. So he looked for some water to wash his face. Unfortunately, he only found a well near the street.

He looked into it to see whether there was any water. He was very surprised to see that the moon was there. Actually, it was the shadow of the moon.He thought that the moon was lost in the well. And, therefore, he thought it was very dangerous because the night would be completely dark.

"I have to save the moon," he thought, "If I don't, it will stay there and the whole world will be dark this night."

Then he looked for a pole but he could not find any. Instead, he only found a long rope. He held one end of the rope and dropped the other one into the well.

"Hold the rope firmly and I will pull you up," he said.

Unfortunately, the rope got entangled with a big stone in the bottom of the well. So, Nasreddin had to work hard to pull the rope up. He thought that he pulled the moon. He could hardly pull the rope with the stone. When the stone was about to come near the lip of the well, it fell down again to the bottom of the well. Because he lost his balance, Nasreddin fell backward with the rope in his hands. At that time he saw the moon was shining in the sky.

Nasreddin smiled happily and said, "Finally I can save you. Now the whole world will not be dark any longer."
