The tribe of Muzaynah had their habitations some distance from Yathrib on the caravan route which linked the city to Makkah. News of the Prophet's arrival in Yathrib spread rapidly and soon reached the Muzaynah through members of the tribe who had left and returned. One evening the chieftain of the tribe, an-Numan ibn Maqarrin, sat among the elders and other members of the tribe and addressed them: "O my people, by Allah, we have learnt only good about Muhammad, and of His mission we have heard nothing but mercy, kindness and justice. What's wrong with us? Why do we tarry while people are hastening to him?" "As for myself," he continued, "I have made up my mind to leave early in the morning to join him. Whoever of you wishes to go with me, let him get ready."

An-Numan must have been a persuasive chieftain. His words had a wondrous effect on the ears of his people. The following morning an-Numan's ten brothers and four hundred horsemen of the Muzaynah were all ready and prepared to go with him to Yathrib to meet the Prophet Sallallahu Alyhi Wa Sallam, and enter the religion of Islam. An-Numan however felt embarrassed to go to the Prophet Sallallahu Alyhi Wa Sallam with such a numerous following without carrying any presents for him and the Muslims. There wasn't much he could carry anyway. That year was a year of drought and famine for the Muzaynah and much of their livestock and crops had perished. Still, an-Numan went around the dwellings of his fellow tribesmen and gathered up whatever sheep and goats were left. These he drove before him and made his way to Madinah. read more

It was his first time at this convention, and on the first day he heard someone yell out the number, "34!" Everyone burst out laughing. He thought that was kind of strange. Then someone yelled out, "87," and again everyone started to laugh. This went on for quite some time. Finally, he asked a co-worker what the number calling was all about.

The co-worker replied, "We are so busy that we have a book of jokes that everyone has memorized and to save time we just yell out the number."

That night the guy went home and memorized the whole book. The next day while at work the guy yelled out, "52," and everyone just looked at him strangely.

He went back to work. Someone else yelled out the number, "68," and everyone laughed hysterically. So, he yelled out, "29," and again everyone just looked at him strangely, so he put his head down and went back to work.

Later that day at lunch, he asked the co-worker, "Why when I yelled out a number no one laughed?"

The co-worker replied "Well, you know how it is, some people can tell a joke and some people can't!"
