25 September, 2007

It was the night befor Ramadan.

I had to go cairo for a quick meeting, bardo ramsis station, but this time a totally different view, people going to their homes carrying candy boxes or wrapped presents the one that touched me most was a very young soldier carrying his big bag and in the other hand a fanoos, I guessed it is a gift for his little brother also a young lady, who seems to be from alex and working in cairo carrying her laptop case, a suitcase and her purse, running to catch the train.

Ramadan has its own spirit, similar to Christmas in the west, but fortunately for us it lasts longer, and unfortunately the things I see after the night of the 27th, as if it is all over, mosques are almost empty, some even start talking about from where to get drugs or setup a night with girls. Just the other day they were spending almost 3 hours praying one shot,

يا مقلب القلوب ثبت قلبي على دينك
للهم إني أعوذ بك أن أبدل نعمتك كفراً، أو أن أكفرها بعد معرفتها، أو أنساها فلا أثني بها
