@Artificial,
Interesting Artificial

I just read the OP again, and realized this...
How does he tell his best friend who is blind, that his mother is dead.

So, this man who is deaf and mute is Best Friends with this blind guy?
As best friends, how have they been communicating all this time?

@chai2,
Well, he could've become deaf/mute, or his friend blind later during their friendship, so I hardly think the arab friend will take that response as valid, however I see your point here.

Uhm. One can't speak, nor hear, the other cannot see.
There is no link, no middleman. So sound and sight are impossible.
Using common sense I hardly think the stink of rotten meat would do the trick either. Leaving us to taste and senses. Taste is out of question..

I'm back at poking morse code now..

EDIT: Unless they're supernatural, in which case they'll just either use telepathic powers, OR are healed by Jesus.

EDIT 2: I know this has been suggested once, but I assume killing the friend would be a suggestion as well. That way he'd meet his mother in heaven (given the riddle was originally asked by a religious person, or someone who believes in the afterlife).

Thus riddle is one of those unanswerable riddles and carries no definitive answer... a viral may be.

The most logical answer is that "Blind guy must realize this on his own!"

@physikal,
The deaf mute finds another friend who is himself deaf but not mute, and understands how to communicate with the deaf mute; that man can then convey the message in words to the blind man.

@physikal,
His best friend is his mother so he wouldn't have to tell her.

@sozobe,
His best friend is not blind he just "blind about the vision".

So, this man who is deaf and mute is Best Friends with him.
As best friends, how have they been communicating all this time? By sign language I suppose.

Omg I remember telling this riddle 12 years ago... As I thought of it myself. I told this riddle to many people over the years and I'm super surprised that this has become this topic... My name is Bassam Eid, The first time i told this riddle was in grade 9, I told my teacher that I would tell her the answer after a week... They angrier she got the longer I would wait to tell her... Eventually she pretty much trapped me in class until I told her the answer. Do you guys really want to know the answer that bad? The answer is that it's impossible and cannot be done.... The point of this riddle is to let the person think about for some time and let it sink in but when you reveal that the answer is something so stupid it can drive some people pretty wild... So there you go the answer from the original founder of this riddle
