In the time of confinement, books are the best friends to frequent. I do have more than 2000 books in my modest library after I get rid of more when I moved years ago to my small apartment. Now it is time to clean the dust from valuable books that need rereading. Al-Dahikoon الضاحكون is an old book written by Mohamad Ali, a few years ago-1988, the fifth edition. Stories and Personalities like Jiha, Ash’ab, al-Jaahith, and many others make you explode in laughing, although sitting alone amid escalating Corona death numbers: Perhaps Ibn Sina had right when, one thousand years ago, had recommended high humor and laughter as a helping cure to stomach diseases. Thanks Abu Suhail for lending the book.
