Bury Me in the Old Cemetery

One time Nashruddin makes a will to his family, "Dear family, when I die I want to be buried in the old cemetery." Then the family asks, "Why is it?" Nashruddin replies, "For when the angels Munkar and Nakir come to ask me questions, I can reply, "Hei angels, I have been staying here for a long time, I was asked by you a while ago." Seeing the condition of my grave, they must agree with my words and they will soon leave. This is the best way to save myself from the difficulties of grave questions from the angels."
