Happy moulid al Nabi

Today is Moulid al Nabi, celebrating the birth of the Prophet, and beside wishing my readers a happy Moulid al Nabi, i would like to offer you two very different writers on this subject, one being my favourite author, writing about celebrating Moulid during his late childhood and youth, some 85 years ago in Abbasiyya, a neighbourhood of Cairo, later immortalized while describing Kamal´s love for Aida on the pages of the second part of the trilogy(Palace of Desire). Of course i´m talking about the deeply missed Naguib Mahfouz.

The second writer is a female blogger, that i just discovered, that share my Saádi roots, and writes with wittiness. So let me leave you by introducing Fattractive, of Tales of a Fattractive Egyptian Woman , and her take on Moulid al Nabi!
