I hear tell that there are some legendary rivers in the world but are any as distinguished as this one?!
From the banks of this river, history has been forged, wars have been fought, countless tales have been told, lives have been lost and others have taken form. The River Nile is a treasure chest, it’s waters flowing with the secrets and stories of ancient times and it blows my mind to think of all the things it holds inside.
As I stood here watching the most amazing sunset, I couldn’t help but think of all that it has seen, the illustrious peoples lives that it shaped, from the great Pharoah’s, to the Prophet’s Musa, Haroon and Ibrahim (may Allah’s blessings be upon them all) to Imam Busiri and Ibn Khaldun (may Allah have mercy on them) and all those forgotten people that made Egypt what it is today. Did they stand here like I have stood and watch the same sun set over it’s banks. I wonder?! It’s such an honour and regardless of everything, I count my blessings to be stood here today at the banks of a river from paradise. Alhamdullilah.
