She thought there was a hidden treasure but she found a baby…

asiya

I was doing live streaming with my friend yesterday and she asked me a question I didn’t really expect:

,, What’s your daughter’s name ??? ,,

I was a little puzzled that she was asking, but I replied to her, “Asiya”.

Suddenly she realized the story I told her a month ago and immediately translated it into Spanish for her people …

As I listened to her translating this story, I realized I never actually wrote about it. And it’s a pity because it’s really a wonderful story and I think everyone should know it. Maybe we all know it in the end, but we listened to it as little children, so it’s likely that most of us have forgotten the story long time ago …

So, have a cup of coffee or tea, sit comfortable on the chair and listen to one of most beautiful Egyptian stories …

***

Asiya bint Muzahim came from a very wealthy family, was young and her beauty was spoken throughout Egypt. So it is no wonder that Pharaoh himself heard about her and immediately got the idea to marry her as his wife. No one could oppose Pharaoh, and so her future was decided. Even Pharaoh already had many previous wives and her own marriage had been agreed, Pharaoh really fell in love with her.

Asiya had everything she could wish: dress, jewelry, gold, palace, garden, servant, maid … she didn’t have to do anything, it was like living in paradise … but she had only one defect. She couldn’t have children. Pharaoh had plenty of children with other wives but he desired to have a baby with Asiya the most, but that never happened.

Of course, Asiya was very desperate and unhappy. And in that time Pharaoh had a very special dream: He saw fire coming from the city of Jerusalem, which burnt everything in his kingdom except the land of the Israelites. Pharaoh called his mages to tell him the meaning of his dream. When the Pharaoh was informed that one of the children of Israelites would grow up to overthrow him, he ordered the killing of all newborn Israelite males in order to prevent the prediction from occurring.

All the newborn male children were killed except One. One Israeli mother managed to hide her son, but she knew she couldn’t keep him, so she had the idea of ​​sending her son in a wicker basket along the Nile. “Whatever happens,” but she hoped fate would give him a chance and her son would survive.

And it really did happened. In the morning Asiya and her servants bathed in the Nile and she saw the basket in the distance. she ordered her servant to bring the basket, because she thought there was a hidden treasure. But when the servant brought her the basket and she saw the baby in it, she fell in love with him immediately and decided to keep him. The servants warned her about the Pharaoh because they saw that it was an Israeli child and a baby boy, but Asiya already made her decision.

When Asiya came to Pharaoh, she told him:

,,A refreshment of the eye to me and to thee – slay him not; maybe he will be useful to us, or we may take him for a son. And they perceived not.,,

Quran: Surah-Al Oasas, verse 9 

Pharaoh could not refuse anything to Asia. So he agreed, because he saw her really happy.
Asiya named baby boy Moses and she was looking for wet-nurse. but Moses rejected all women who could breastfeed him. They were worried that the boy would die of hunger when the girl (Moses’s sister) came to the palace and told them she knew a wet-nurse who could breastfeed him. And she brought his own mother to become his nanny.

Moses grew up, and of course there was always a plenty disagreement between him and the Faraoh, and Asiya was always supporting Moses. Because She really considered him to be her own son.
And when Mosa became a prophet, Asiya was the first to hear his prophecy and was the first to believe in him and in one god. So we consider her to be absolutely the first Muslim woman.

Asiya hid her faith from Pharaoh but eventually she made a mistake. One morning she brushed her hair when her comb broke and called, “In the name of God,” but unfortunately Pharaoh’s daughter from ,another wife, heard it and she asked her ,,The God – Do you mean my dad?,, And Asiya responded her: ,,No, I mean the Only God.,, The daughter immediately told Pharaoh and he was so angry that he decided to punish Asiya this time.
He led her into the desert where he tied her to a stake and tortured her.

He tortured her really cruelly to subdue to him as to the ONLY Pharaoh and God and forget her god and the teachings of Moses. But Asiya could not, she could not renounce the god she believed in. and so before she died, she begged God for help.

,,O my Lord! Build for me, in nearness to Thee, a mansion in the Garden, and save me from Pharaoh and his doings, and save me from those that do wrong’,,

—  Quran, chapter 66- At Tahrim, verse 11

God answered her prayer and opened the heavens and showed her the gardens and rewards awaiting her in paradise. Asiya started to laugh so badly …
Pharaoh just added, see how she’s gone mad by torture? this is how the madmen laugh …

A few minutes later, Asiya died. Asiya is considered the first woman ever to enter paradise.

Once upon a time

back in 3500 BC, The annual flood season along the Nile was unpredictable and it was really a big mess in the country… So the priest of ancient Egypt decided to do something about it. They started to make records and created a flood gauge called the Nilometer. The simplest design was a vertical column submerged in the river with marked intervals indicating the depth of the river.

They used it till the year 3100 when King Menes made The first major irrigation project. He  used dams and canals to use the diverted floodwaters of the Nile into a new lake called lake “Moeris.”

But as the time goes the Nilometer itself get improved of course. We have 2 famous Nilometers in ancient Egypt. One you can see on the island of Elephantine in Aswan, where a stairway of 52 steps leads down to a doorway at the Nile. Also with depth markings along the walls.

More complicated Nilometer you can see at the Temple of Kom Ombo, to the north of Aswan. It was a channel or culvert that led from the riverbank – often running for a considerable distance – and then fed a well, tank, or cistern. Mostly used by Priest.

But the most famous Nilometer which You will know is in the centre of Cario. A place called Al Manial or Roda Island.

The El Manial Palace was built for Prince Mohammed Ali Tewfik in 20 century. It’s kind of new and very important. Because just on this place in these days they found  The Nile came below the water limit! WHY did it happen?

It is a very easy answer. Country Ethiopia built a new dam on the Blue Nile. and It affected all the Nile so hard that half of the water of the Nile disappeared. As you can predect it is a really big conflict now between Egypt and Ethiopia. and they are trying to find a solution.

But what’s more important than in the Aswan inside Nilometer they found a hyeroglifs on the wall. and it is a written if the Nile came below the water limit until this deep where the writing is…so the ancient Egyptian soldiers of all Pharaos what was existing, will relive again. They will go fight the enemy who wanted to stop the Nile from Egypt, And they will not stop until they win. 

Well and guess what is happening in Egypt now…these days suddenly is so horrible rain in Egypt. A lot of places in Cairo including an airport is underwater. Even in Aswan started to rain and even in Alexandria. Unexpected rain! Could this be a part of pharaoh curse how to make back the Nile into its shape? Well this can sound kind of insane and a lot of people in Egypt mock about these pharaoh words but well no one knows about these word before until it happens.

Personally, I have studied and believed in the pharaoh Magic. Because its a something which they were master in like no one else in this world. Let’s say Egyptian magic even nowadays is so strong and harming people. And pharaohs in magic was a thousand times better than Egyptian people today. So why it should not be true? 

Well, let’s see what will happen in the following days…
