What is in It
 
A certain Bektashi dervish was respected for his piety and appearance of virtue. Whenever anyone asked him how he had become so holy, he always answered: ‘I know what is in the Koran.’ One day he had just given this reply to an enquirer in a coffee-house, when an imbecile asked: ‘Well, what IS in the Koran?’ ‘In the Koran,’ said the Bektashi, ‘there are two pressed flowers and a letter from my friend Abdullah.’
