One day, a man came all the way from Baghdad to see Nasruddin. "I have a question for you," said the man. "I want to know what happens to us after we die."
Nasruddin paused for a moment, and then smiled.
"Come with me," he said. "I know who can answer your question."
Nasruddin then led the man through the streets of the city until they found themselves at the cemetery.
"You need to ask them," Nasruddin said, "not me."
