The Mystery of the Jewel

Once upon a time, there was an old man who had three sons. They were all living in harmony and happiness.

One day, the father fell ill. His pain increased till he was about to die. The three brothers were competing in looking after their father and nursing him. The youngest son demanded that his brothers let him take his father to his house so he could be devoted to his service and nursing him.

His brothers refused in the beginning, but they agreed when

he told them that he would renounce his share in his father’s inheritance for them. Then, he took his father to his house. He and his wife worked 

together in taking care of the sick man until he died.

One night, the youngest son saw his father in a vision telling him that he had hidden a treasure in a remote place. In the morning, the son went to the place mentioned by his father. He found a small box full of jewels and money. The son took the box and went to his brothers. He told them what had happened, so they said:

You waived your share in your father’s inheritance, so you have no right to this money!

The following night, he saw a similar vision. When he found the money, he went to his brothers. They took it from him saying the same words.

The following night, he saw a similar vision. When he found the money, he went to his brothers. They took it from him saying the same words.

The son returned home feeling sad. When he slept, he saw his father again and he told him that he had put a Deenaar in the water pot in their remote field. When the son went to his brothers and told them what he had seen, they mocked him saying: Only one Deenaar?… Take it if you want.

The son went to the field and took the Deenaar. When he was on his way back, he met an old fisherman who wanted to sell two fish. He came closer to him, and asked him: How much do you want for these two fish?

The fisherman said: I only want one Deenaar. The son gave him the Deenaar and took the two fish. When he reached home, he gave the fish to his wife and asked her to cook them.

As soon as the wife split the first fish open, she found something shining. When she held it, it was a huge Jewel. She took the knife to open the second fish. Again she was surprised to see another Jewel.

The news of the precious jewel spread among the people. When the king knew about the matter, he ordered to have the jewels and rewarded the man (i.e. the youngest brother) with a lot of money.
