• Awais Karni was a well-known saint of Yemen. He had none in the world except his blind and lame mother. So, much of his time was spent in helping her. For their livelihood he used to work as a cowherd at day time. The greater part of the night was spent in prayer and meditation. They were very poor. So he had to fast very often in order to help his poor neighbours. 

  • Long, long ago there lived a very kind and generous man in Yemen. Yemen was a province in Arabia. The name of that man was Hatem Tai. He was not rich. But he was very hospitable. People loved him. They praised him more than their king. So the king wanted to have him removed from the world.
