Summary
One of the tales from the Thousand and one nights. Unhappy in his home life, Maarouf escapes from Cairo and with the help of a genie flies to a foreign land. There, by chance, he meets an old friend who gives him an idea -- to pretend he is the owner of a huge caravan which is on its way to the city carrying expensive goods. Believing in Maarouf's story the merchants lend him great sums of money. However, Maarouf is soon in trouble when he starts to believe his own story
