Egypt With Dr. Yasir qadhi

Welcome to Egypt, a land where the sands of time intertwine with the rich tapestry of Islamic heritage, offering a journey of spiritual enlightenment and cultural discovery. From the towering minarets of Cairo’s ancient mosques to the serene sanctuaries of Alexandria, Egypt’s Islamic perspective offers a glimpse into a world shaped by prophets, scholars, and rulers. Explore the vibrant souks where traders once bartered under the watchful gaze of minarets, or wander through the labyrinthine streets of Islamic Cairo, where hidden gems await around every corner. Egypt invites you to embark on a journey of discovery, where the legacy of Islam resonates in every stone and story.

Old Cairo

Cairo is often referred to as a city of a thousand minarets and it is certainly full of impressive, historic mosques from the time Muslims first conquered Egypt in the 7th century and throughout the various caliphates that ruled over it. Masjid Al-Azhar is an icon of Islam in Egypt, built in the 10th century, for the newly established capital city. Around 900 years later, the Ottomans built the Great Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha, modeled on the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul.

Luxor

Luxor, located in the south of Egypt, is often referred to as the world’s largest open-air museum due to its vast array of ancient monuments, tombs and temples.  Formerly a capital of the Pharaohs and home to the famed Valley of the Kings tombs, a royal necropolis of the Pharaonic New Kingdom era where, amongst many others, the famous Tutankhamen and Ramses were buried. As you venture inside you can appreciate the elaborate decorations and see the depictions of the afterlife in their tombs.

The Luxor and Karnak Temples are amongst the archaeological highlights of Egypt and the most visited sites after the Pyramids in Giza.  The temples are thousands of years old and were once the most important and largest religious centers in Egypt. The Luxor Museum contains fascinating ancient statues and artifacts found in the temples and will have you captivated by the absolutely amazing ancient Egyptian history.

Giza Pyramids

The iconic Pyramids of Giza plateau, just on the outskirts of Cairo, is an ancient necropolis, or cemetery, for several pharaohs that ruled ancient Egypt thousands of years ago.  Listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, it consists of three main pyramids guarded by a 4500-year-old limestone statue of a body of a lion with a Pharaoh’s head – the Great Sphinx. If you love history, then you’ll love the new Grand Egyptian Museum – a billion-dollar project with 500,000 square meter space housing around 100,000 ancient artefacts!

Alexandria

Embark on a captivating one-day tour of Alexandria’s Islamic heritage, immersing yourself in centuries of spiritual and cultural significance. Begin your day with a visit to the awe-inspiring Abu Abbas al-Mursi Mosque, marveling at its intricate architecture and tranquil ambiance. Explore the historic Mosque of Amr ibn al-As, tracing the city’s early Islamic roots. After a delightful lunch, continue your journey with a guided tour of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, delving into its Islamic artifacts and manuscripts. Conclude your experience with a visit to the formidable Qaitbay Citadel, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and a stroll along the scenic Corniche, reflecting on the profound legacy of Islamic heritage in Alexandria.
