Hearing someone moving about in his house, the Mulla became frightened and hid in a cupboard.
In the course of their search, the two burglars opened the door and saw him cowering there.
‘Why are you hiding from us?’ asked one.
‘I am hiding from shame that there is nothing in this house worthy of your attentions.’
