Recently, 5MT have been learning about a specific myth in the 1001 Arabian nights called Ali Baba and the 40 thieves. It's about two brothers; Cassim, who was rich, and Ali Baba who was a poor woodcutter. One day, Ali Baba was in the forest and came across 40 thieves. They led him to a huge cavern which opened when you use the magic word. "Open sesame!". It opened to a cave full of loot. He then moved into a wealthy community. Cassim grew so envious and demanded an explanation. He threatened Ali Baba that he will tell everyone that Ali Baba stole loot. He told him everything including the magic word. Excitedly, he left to the cavern and took the treasure. After a while, he turned to leave. Oh no! He's forgotten the magic word...
