Two Christians in the Desert 



Two Christians were lost in the Sahara desert.  One is David, the other is Michael.  They were dying of hunger and thirst when they suddenly came upon an oasis, with what looked like an emirate of a mosque in the middle.


David said to Michael:  Look, let's pretend we are Muslims, otherwise we'll not get any food or drink. I am going to call myself Mohammed.

Michael refused to change his name, he said:  My name is Michael and I will not pretend to be other than but what I am.....  Michael.


The Imam of the mosque received both well and asked about their names.


David said:  My name is Mohammed.

Michael said:  My name is Michael.


The Imam turned to the helpers of the mosque and said:  Please bring some food and water for Michael only.


Then he turned to the other and said:  Well Mohammed, I hope you are aware that we are still in the holy month of Ramadan.
