The magician said that he was Aladdin's uncle. He was returning to the village after many years away. Aladdin took the magician to his house. There, the magician gave some fruit and wine to Aladdin's mother.
"It is true. Mustapha did have a brother, but I never knew him," Aladdin's mother said. "My husband has left us with nothing, and Aladdin has no job."
"I want to help your son," said the magician. "I will build him a shop. He can sell fruit or shoes or clothing. Then you will have money."
