A patient and thankful young man

It was evening and the darkness of the night began to slowly fall upon everything. A traveller in Khurasan, with no goods and only a staff in his hand wearing a thick, worn out and coarse clothing was on a journey. He reached a colony and decided to spend the night at such a place where he saw some people who apparently looked religious and were looking prosperous and without any tensions. As they saw this worried man, one of them questioned him in a harsh tone, ‘Who are you?’ Replying politely that traveller said, ‘I am a traveller and want to stay here for the night.’ They all started laughing and said looking down upon him, ‘He is not from us.’ Upon hearing this, the traveller felt happy and replied, ‘Certainly, I am not from you.’ When night fell one of them brought a dry piece of bread and placed it before him and then joined the party of his friends enjoying all sorts of delicious foods, they were busy laughing and joking with each other. They would laugh as they saw the traveller eating the dry bread and threw eaten skins of melon at him. These people kept insulting him the whole night until the morning but that young man who was patient and grateful patiently and happily endured their ill-treatment without even reacting.
