““The Story of the Wise Mother” is a folktale. Folktales are stories that were created to teach a lesson. The lessons were taught in stories that were passed from generation to generation.  This story began in the country of Sudan and has no known author.
Summary: This folktale is about a young king, Jalal, who inherited the throne when his fair and just father passed away. Jalal’s mother was wise and worried that her young son would be taken advantage of by people who claimed to be his friend. She warned her son that most people would be looking for Jalal’s money. Jalal chose two friends but quickly failed a test of friendship by Jalal’s wise mother. Jalal chose a third friend, Khalid, but was leary of telling his mother for fear his new friend would also fail the test. Jalal’s mother knew by his happiness that he must have found a new friend and so this friend was also put to the test. When Khalid passes Jalal’s mother’s friendship test, Jalal learned the lesson of true friendship.”
