meaning of the word
in the Arabian Nights a boy who acquires a magic lamp from which he can summon a genie
When Aladdin gave these commands to the genie, the sun was set.
He then quickly learnt about the wealth, charities, happiness, and splendid palace of Prince Aladdin.
Lay one down immediately." The genie disappeared, and Aladdin saw what he desired executed in an instant.
Aladdin went out of the hall, and returning soon after, found the window, as he wished it to be, like the others.
Thus Aladdin, while he paid all respect to the sultan, won by his affable behaviour and liberality the affections of the people.
Aladdin returned home in the order he had come, amidst the acclamations of the people, who wished him all happiness and prosperity.
"Well," said he, rubbing his hands in glee, "I shall have the lamp, and I shall make Aladdin return to his original mean condition."
On his return he had recourse to an operation of geomancy to find out where the lamp was--whether Aladdin carried it about with him, or where he left it.
The next morning the attendants of Aladdin presented themselves to dress him, and brought him another habit, as rich and magnificent as that worn the day before.
The next day the magician called for the twelve lamps, paid the man his full price, put them into a basket hanging on his arm, and went directly to Aladdin's palace.
