The She-Camel: A joke from Prophet Muhammad

"Anas ibn Malik radi Allahu anhu narrated that a man came to the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam and said, “O Messenger of Allah! I want you to give me a camel to ride upon.” The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, “All that I can find for you is a child of a she-camel.”

The man turned around and walked away, disappointed that the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to give him a baby camel upon which to ride. The Prophet sal Alalhu alayhi wa sallam then called him back and said, ‘And is not every camel (be it old or young) the child of a she-camel! [Abu Dawood, Graded Saheeh by Albani in Saheeh Abi Dawood]"
