    Kalila wa Dimnah is a collection of fables of Indian origin translated into Arabic in the eighth century by Abdullah Ibn Al Muqaffa. The work was translated into many languages and is said to have inspired Jean de La Fontaine and other compilers of fables. Kalila wa Dimnah belongs to the "mirror of princes" literature genre, and its stories put moral and political advice into the mouths of animals to explain questions of social life and princely wisdom.
