A man, questioning the loyalty of his wife, Sara, confides in a friend for advice. The affair and the advice both constitute a dreadful surprise to a discerning eye.
The anecdote is deep-rooted in man's Id-instinctual reaction for satisfying motives. Paradoxically, the husband and the wife are said to be Jewish and the lover Muslim, an incredible wishful combination!
Historically, as of 70 A.D., when the 2nd Temple was destroyed by the Romans, Jews left Palestine to settle in other lands, some dwelled in regions which later, 621 A.D., turned Muslims by Arab conquers.
As a result, Jews' daily life was drastically affected by the newly turned Muslims. Jews were not allowed to engage in businesses, such as food processing and land ownership. Therefore, they had no choice but to engage in other trades: selling cloth, usury, jewelry or medicine. Most of them lived in absolute poverty. Nevertheless, regional history shows that female Jews, despite they destitute, did not engaged in sex with Muslims.
Additionally, the Jewish husband confining in a Muslim friend seems improbable, because, as long as the sun rises and sets, these two, Arabs and Jews, are not going to reconcile, as Muslim teachings are full of clear commandments and teachings to avoid dealing with the Jews. On the part of the Jews, they have had no pleasant experience with the Muslims as of 621 A.D. onward.
In Middle East, the insertion of a male's organ into the private part of a female or a nonadolescent boy, for pleasure or not, particularly a rival's wife, sister, daughter or son, is a great achievement! On the other hand, this act of disgrace traumatizes both the female and the male, sometimes prompting suicide or calling for an honor killing initiated by the victim's family, presently prevalent in the area. Besides, the woman in the anecdote happens to be named after the original Sarah, the wife of Abraham, renowned for exquisite beauty!
Anyway, the advice of the Jew's friend was," Since you are a wayfarer, taking long trips, a week or a month, you cannot unexpectedly show up at your house and catch your wife in the act. Therefore, you need a tricky device to function accurately in your absence. What you need are a jar of yogurt to be placed under the bed and a plumber's friend inserted into the jar, of course, short of touching the yogurt. Consequently, when your wife sleeps with another person, the additional weight pushes the stick into the yogurt and making it wet, thus you can easily reach the conclusion you are after.
The husband secretly followed the instruction and left home for the night, pretending to be going on a one-month-business trip.
Well, when next morning he returned, he was stunned. Rushing to his Muslim friend, he divulged to him, "Ahmet, it was not only wet but also covered with one pound of churned goat butter!"
