The humorous stories of Bahlool as told and re-told by madrasah teachers and speakers for generations have given us a glimpse of what it means to be a loyal companion of an Imam.

Bahlool lived at the time of Imam Ja’far as Sadiq (as) and Imam Musa al-Kadhim (as). The fear of persecution at the hands of the Abbasid Caliphs forced the followers of the Ahlulbayt to look to creative ways to preserve their lives while continuing to support the mission of Islam and maintaining it’s true sanctity. Bahlool adopted the life of insanity to save his life and serve Islam at the advice of the Imam. All the while imparting valuable lessons to those around him as well as the Caliph himself!

This book attempts to bring some of those stories to life in a way that children can relate to. It was inspired by a little child’s love for poetry and the need to offer the children in our community a fun book of rhymes that imparts valuable gems found within our faith.

The amazing contributions of fallible companions of the Aimmah show us the amazing potential Allah has given to each and every one of us. It is my prayer that this book invites our children to build a bond with the amazing personality of Bahlool. May our families be blessed with some of his unflinching loyalty and servitude to the Imam of his time (AJTF).


There once was a man in Baghdad,
Who went by the name of Bahlool.
To save his life from the evil king,
He used to act the fool.

Yet he taught his lessons in such a way,
That the stories have been retold.
His school has remained open,
And more valuable than gold!
