Before whom ladies of old Egypt trembled?
Al-Hakeem’s adjoining Northern gate the mosque, immortalises 1 of the most known governors of Egypt. For certain ladies of old Egypt and so not differing the civil and family rights, fainted at its mention of his name… When al-Hakeem bi-Amr the Allah («The governor at will of God») became the sixth fatimidsky Caliph, he was only eleven years old old, and in fifteen it let’s the order kill own instructor. Its board (996-1021) was despotic and whimsical and was marked by prosecutions of Christians, Jews and dealers, also cowardly misogyny. Al-Hakeem did not allow to leave to ladies the house (and that its order was carried out, has forbidden to do women’s shoes) and once let’s the order weld alive group of ladies which very much rustled in public baths. People in Egypt, knowing Puritan bents of own governor, were afraid to drink wine, to play chess, to look speeches of dancers is it forbade. All city dogs have been interrupted, because bark of mongrels irritated the governor. The dealers convicted of deception during the arranged al-Hakeem of checks, nubian slave Masoud forced it, and халив on this time trampled feet of their head – and this comparably reserved behaviour for the person who has cut once the butcher it the knife. And each new year in Egypt many from listed above horrors repeated…
The revenge was not alien to ladies of old Egypt!
In 1020 in a mosque Amr flatterers declared al-Hakeem sacred that has caused national revolts. In reply it let’s the order destroy Fustat and Mukattam where he liked to exploit at the nights alone looked behind a fire flame from hills. Legends, but, explain an arson al-Hakeem’s desire to revenge inhabitants of quarter where his love sister Sitt Al-Mulk («The powerful madam») accepted own lovers. Interestingly, night clubs of Egypt then were or not? Only after Fustata-Masr’s half it was ruined, the sister of the governor was examined by midwives and recognised as the virgin, and the Caliph has examined the devastated quarters and has asked: «Who let’s the order make it?» It is considered that he longed to enter incestuous marriage with the sister, and it has forced it to organise al-Hakeem’s "disappearance" during one of his night walks. The body of the Caliph has not been found. Sitt al-Mulk governed as регентша at young Caliph Zakhir, was peacefully lost in the bed and has not gained that glory which has fallen to a lot Shadzharat ad-Durr, known as the unique female ruler of Egypt since Cleopatra later.
In ancient Egypt it is possible to guess an abundance of old religious cults only
Meanwhile follower al-Hakeem Hamza ibn Ali and his pupil Mohammed al-Duzri have convinced many Muslims abroad that al-Hakeem was an embodiment of God, is similar Christian to the Messiah. This idea lies in base of the religious doctrine of sect of the Druzes which solid societies still are in Syria, Lebanon and Israel. Details of this doctrine are kept a secret. In general, many religious cults of old Egypt in the devout country with old traditions are not subject to publicity. Copts, on the contrary, consider that al-Hakeem was the Christ, he has repented and became the monk. In any case, its big mosque has been thrown later and was used for the wordly purposes till 1980 when it was returned by Shiite sect of Ismaelians from Brunei which will read al-Hakeem. New copper lamps, glass candlesticks and михраб have caused rage of fighters for purity of style, but unique wood anchor beams and a plaster frieze remained untouched. By the way, some houses in Egypt too have remained in a primordial form. From a roof you can examine a cemetery of Women of al-Nasr or the minarets of a mosque storing memory of its initial look similar to bastions. Possibility to get to a yard on a wheelchair became one of advantages of modernisation of a structure. It is necessary though all the same to be careful because to take in a trip to Egypt the disabled person-kolyasochnika absolutely really, but here it should overcome a case the remained step.
