Aladdin was surprised, as it was a lonely spot and there was nothing or no one anywhere. Then he threw it at the ground and the next moment there was smoke all around. As the smoke cleared away, Aladdin saw a big opening in the ground like a cave. The merchant asked Aladdin to go inside the cave.
Take as much as you want. Inside the cave, you will also see an old lamp. Just get it out for me. Inside, he saw the cave was filled with gold. He filled up his pockets with gold and stuffed in as much as he could. When he could take no more gold, he looked for the lamp and found it. It was old and dirty. He took the lamp and called out to the merchant to help him out.
Aladdin was afraid that if he gave the lamp to the merchant, he would leave him there.
He threw it at the cave and the opening of the cave became shut with a huge rock. Aladdin was scared. He waited inside and shouted, hoping that someone would come and help.
But many hours passed and no one came.
As Aladdin was sitting alone, he started cleaning the lamp. What is your wish? But the genie assured him that he would do as Aladdin asked him. They hugged each other and Aladdin told her all about his adventure. Aladdin called the genie again and he appeared, but now they were not afraid of him. He asked the genie for a palace and soon they were living inside a beautiful palace instead of the old hut where Aladdin had lived all his life.
As people got to know about the rich Aladdin, he became more famous. He was now married to the princess, the daughter of the Sultan, and they were very happy. The magician too heard all about Aladdin. Aladdin is an impoverished young ne'er-do-well, dwelling in "one of the cities of China". He is recruited by a sorcerer from the Maghreb , who passes himself off as the brother of Aladdin's late father, Mustapha the tailor , convincing Aladdin and his mother of his good will by pretending to set up the lad as a wealthy merchant.
The sorcerer's real motive is to persuade young Aladdin to retrieve a wonderful oil lamp from a booby-trapped magic cave. After the sorcerer attempts to double-cross him, Aladdin finds himself trapped in the cave. Aladdin is still wearing a magic ring the sorcerer has lent him.
When his mother tries to clean the lamp, so they can sell it to download food for their supper, a second far more powerful genie appears who is bound to do the bidding of the person holding the lamp. With the aid of the genie of the lamp, Aladdin becomes rich and powerful and marries Princess Badroulbadour , the sultan 's daughter after magically foiling her marriage to the vizier 's son.
The genie builds Aladdin and his bride a wonderful palace, far more magnificent than the sultan's. The sorcerer hears of Aladdin's good fortune, and returns; he gets his hands on the lamp by tricking Aladdin's wife who is unaware of the lamp's importance by offering to exchange "new lamps for old". He orders the genie of the lamp to take the palace, along with all its contents, to his home in the Maghreb.
Aladdin still has the magic ring and is able to summon the lesser genie. The genie of the ring cannot directly undo any of the magic of the genie of the lamp, but he is able to transport Aladdin to the Maghreb where, with the help of the "woman's wiles" of the princess he recovers the lamp and slays the sorcerer, returning the palace to its proper place.
The sorcerer's more powerful and evil brother plots to destroy Aladdin for killing his brother by disguising himself as an old woman known for her healing powers. Badroulbadour falls for his disguise and commands the "woman" to stay in her palace in case of any illnesses.
Aladdin is warned of this danger by the genie of the lamp and slays the imposter.
Everyone lives happily ever after, Aladdin eventually succeeding to his father-in-law's throne. The opening sentences of the story, in both the Galland and the Burton versions, set it in "one of the cities of China".
Islamic communities have been known to exist in the region since the Tang Dynasty. Some have suggested that the intended setting may be Turkestan encompassing Central Asia and the modern Chinese province of Xinjiang in Western China.
Notably, there is practically nothing in the rest of the story that is inconsistent with a Middle Eastern setting. For instance, the ruler is referred to as "Sultan" rather than being called the "Emperor", as in some re-tellings, and the people in the story are Muslims and their conversation is larded with devout Muslim platitudes.
A Jewish merchant downloads Aladdin's wares and incidentally cheats him , but there is no mention of Buddhists or Confucians or other distinctively Han Chinese people.
For all this, speculation about a "real" Chinese setting depends on a knowledge of China that the teller of a folk tale as opposed to a geographic expert might well not possess. Adaptations vary in their faithfulness to the original story.
In particular, difficulties with the Chinese setting are sometimes resolved by giving the story a more typical Arabian Nights background. The traditional Aladdin pantomime is the source of the well-known pantomime character Widow Twankey Aladdin's mother.
In pantomime versions, changes in the setting and story are often made to fit it better into "China" albeit a China situated in the East End of London rather than Medieval Baghdad , and elements of other Arabian Nights tales in particular Ali Baba are often introduced into the plot. One version of the "pantomime Aladdin" is Sandy Wilson 's musical Aladdin , from Since the early s Aladdin pantomimes have tended to be influenced by the Disney animation.
