Deceived|فریب خورده

A hungry fox was passing by a village when he saw a rooster. Eager to relieve his hunger, the fox tried to find a way to hunt the rooster.

The fox told the rooster: “Hello friend, I knew your father, he had a great voice. How about you? Are you a good singer?”

The rooster replied: “Of course I am. In fact, I sing better than my father,” and closed his eyes to sing.

The fox’s plan worked well, it was the perfect opportunity for him to hunt the credulous rooster.  The fox jumped and grabbed the rooster with his teeth.

The rooster regretted how easy he was deceived and started to crow.

The village’s dogs heard the rooster’s crow and ran toward the fox.

The rooster told the fox: “In order to stop the dogs to follow you, you should shout and tell them, ‘This rooster doesn’t belong to your village, I got it from another village.’”

The fox believed that to be a great idea and opened his mouth to shout without hesitation, setting the rooster free.

The fox realized how he was tricked by the rooster and said: “Curse on the mouth that opens untimely.”

The rooster responded: “And curse to the eyes that close untimely.”

  1. I still had the last story in my mind that this one popped up. Which was a good one to read as usual. Loved it.

  3. I like the wisdom at the end of this story. However, unless there is something I don’t know about roosters (and I used to have one) I think you could simply have the fox attack the rooster from the start. I don’t think he would need a way “to find a way to hunt the rooster.”

    I also like that the rooster finds a way to trick the fox (a tricky animal).

  9. cute story. The fox was smart enough to get the rooster to close his eyes and the rooster eventually got the fox to open his mouth so he could escape. Moral of the story-don’t be gullible.
