In this 239th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Arabian Nights story of The Three Apples.
Once upon a time long, long ago and far, far away the Khaleefeh Hároon Er-Rasheed said to Jaafar, his Wezeer (Vizier), We will disguise ourselves and go down to-night into the city, and inquire of the affairs of those who we find.

They find an old fisherman who lamenting (weeping and crying in grief) and quoting verse. He tells them how he fishes everyday and barely catches enough to support his family, let alone sell. The Kaleefeh makes the fisherman an offer. He tells him let us go back to the river and whatever the fisherman catches he will offer him 100 pieces of gold.

The fisherman rejoices all the way to the river and casts his net. After a while he hauls up a chest, locked and heavy. The exchange takes place and the Kaleefeh and his Vizier take the chest back to the palace.

They lighted the candles, and placed the chest before them, then broke it open. Within they found a basket of palm-leaves sewed up with red worsted (a 4 ply yarn of various blends); and they cut the threads. Opening the parcel they saw within it a piece of carpet, and, lifting up this, they found beneath it an izár (men's and women's white garments worn by Muslim people during the Hajj pilgrimage)., and when they had taken up the izár they discovered under it a damsel like molten silver, killed, and cut in pieces.

And so begins the investigation of the Kaleefeh and his Vizier – to find the perpetrator of the beautiful maiden’s murderer. This investigation will lead them on many adventures across the seas during which time they will hear the story of NOOR-ED-DEEN AND HIS SON, AND OF SHEMS-ED-DEEN AND HIS DAUGHTER.
But what was the story of Nord-ed-Deen and his son? We invite you to download and read this story of Arabian princes, kings, princesses, palaces and adventures to find the answers.
