A pierced belly
   
submitted by Arab Educational Institute
17.03.2006

Once a shepherd roamed the desert. He met a sheikh who asked to give him some water. However, the shepherd kept the bottle under his clothes and denied to have any water.

Then the prophet Mohammed appeared and pierced the shepherd's belly. A stream of water poured out. The mysterious sheikh drank from the water and when he finished the water flow stopped. The shepherd, who remained uninjured, immediately repented. He followed the sheikh and became his disciple.
