    'Appointment on samara' story similar to islamic

    Report bad ads?

    Hi Guys,

    I heard a story. I think its titled 'Appointment on samara'. The story is like that a merchant see his death infront of him and with fear, he fled into samara which is far away from there. But the death would be waiting infront of him. The merchant ask the death "why you look so surprised?" the death says "Because i had an appointment with you on samara today"

    I think this story is similar to the islamic history that happend in the time of prophet suleiman(pbuh).

    I don't have much information on this story. I heard it from a tv show. Is there any chance that they get this story from bible? or they may have copied from quran?

    This story has many different versions but one source might be from the Jewish folktales.

    In that version, it´s the appointment in Luz, the secret city where no one dies. The king Solomon hears how birds talk together that the Death has an appointment with two of his men. When he tells about it to them they are scared and beg help. The king Solomon knows the secret of the city of Luz where all of its inhabitants are immortal. Men try to go there but as soon as they have arrived to the city of Luz, they´ll meet there the Angel of Death who is waiting them. "How did you know to look us from here?", men ask and the Angel of Death answers: "This is where I was told to meet you."

    As this theme is very common with the all people as how to escape from the death and become immortal, the original story might be older.

    Indeed.

    "We appointed immortality for no mortal before thee. What! if thou diest, can they be immortal!" Quran 21:34

    It´s a folktales. It doesn´t need to be true story but just a figment of the imagination.

    I don't have much knowledge. But I think our prophet muhammad (saw) said this story of prophet Suleiman(pbuh). Right?
    So, do you think the other versions are derived from the same story?
