This has been a Natoya-Aries production... The Persian Empire stretched from the border of India to Asia Minor and from the edge of Egypt to the coasts of the Black and Caspian Sea. The empire was divided in twenty provinces. To connect the provinces they bulit a road system and had horses along the roads. The story behind The Thousand and One Nights is of a woman- hating king who marries a different woman every night and puts her to death each morning. A very wise princess outwitted this king by telling him a story each night and delayiing the ending before morning came, she continued with her tale for a "Thousand and One Nights". The Fisherman and the Jinnee
There once was a fisherman who was poor, he had a wife as well as children to support so he would cast his net for food four times a day. One day his net caught a jinnee at the bottom of the sea. The jinnee threatened to kill the fisherman. Using his smarts the fisherman got the jinnee to go into the bottle. The fisherman decided to tell the tale of King Yuan and Duban the doctor and teach the jinnee a lesson. The story is of the King's wrong doings and the reasons he was not saved by Allah. After reading this tale the fisherman decided to throw the jinnee back into the sea to perish, since earlier the jinnee had threatened to kill him.
The Opening,Power, and Daybreak are three chapters in the Koran. the Opening is a prayer, Power and Daybreak are teachings talking about the night of power and the dangers of being around evils Allah has created.
The folktales originated from the Persian folklore of the princess Shaharazad.
