The Man of Baghdad’s Treasure

A man of Baghdad heard a voice in a dream. “Go to Cairo to find the treasure!”

He spent every penny on the journey.

Then, with no money for a room, he wandered Cairo’s streets.

A patrolman accosted him, and he explained about the dream that brought him to Cairo.

The patrolman laughed. “You can’t put stock in dreams!” he said. “I often have a dream about Baghdad where I see treasure buried under a house…”

As the patrolman described the dream, the man of Baghdad recognized his own house!

He hurried back to Baghdad and found the treasure there.
