A proverb story A husband is found, a son is born, but the brother is lost.
Once upon a time there was a very strict ruler of Iraq called Al- Hajjaj.
He captured three men and threw them in prison. Later on he ordered his soldiers to cut off their heads.
When they were brought before the swordsman Al- Hajjaj noticed a very beautiful woman crying very hard
He asked her what are you crying about? She answered, these men are my husband, son, and brother, how can I not cry for him?
Al- Hajjaj said, choose one of them and Ill set him free! He thought that she would choose her son for sure.
It was a difficult decision to make. She was silent for a while then she said, A husband is found, a son is born, but the brother is lost. I choose my brother ! Al- Hajjaj was astonished of her answer and asked about the secret of her choice.
The woman explained that the husband is found which means she can marry another man, the son is born which means that she can give birth to another child but the brother is lost because she cant replace him now for her father and mother are dead.
Al- Hajjaj admired her wit and wisdom so he decided to set them all free. Her saying became a proverb.
