A 17th century miniature of Nasreddin, currently in the Topkapi Palace Museum Library.

Nasreddin ( Plantilla:Lang-ar / ALA-LC: Naṣraddīn Juḥā, Turkish: Nasreddin Hoca, , Plantilla:Lang-ur, Nasreddīn Hodja Bosnian: Nasrudin Hodža) was a Seljuq satirical Sufi figure, sometimes believed to have lived during the Middle Ages (around 13th century) and considered a populist philosopher and wise man, remembered for his funny stories and anecdotes. He appears in thousands of stories, sometimes witty, sometimes wise, but often, too, a fool or the butt of a joke. A Nasreddin story usually has a subtle humour and a pedagogic nature.
