The cruel Muslim customs are known all over the world, the treatment of a woman as a thing shocks many people. Egyptian society can rightfully be called a male society, because here, as nowhere else, all Muslim traditions and customs are alive and respected, not only in the family, but also in public life.
A woman in Islam is considered a vicious creature, her whole essence is full of vices and temptations. Not only in rural areas, but also in cities, laws require a woman to cover her entire body and hair, she can only leave her hands, feet and face uncovered.
However, it was always and in everything that if there are prohibitions, then this entails an even greater desire to violate these prohibitions. After all, for some reason, keeping their women in such severity, Muslim men are happy to look at foreign women who are lightly and freely dressed.
Men and women begin to talk about sexual relations in Egypt from early childhood, when girls begin to learn how to please their husbands and obey him, to fulfill all his desires. Among men, this is generally the number one topic, because premarital relations are completely prohibited, and especially questions of the sexual topic concern those men who get married very late.
For Egyptians, marriage is a very serious and important step, because it speaks of constancy and stability. The Egyptians prefer a quiet family home, rather than any life changes. The family in Egypt does not only consist of husband, wife and children as usual.
The Egyptian family is a unified family group that includes all male relatives. Such a group is headed by the oldest man in the family and his spouse, and this group also includes their sons with their numerous families.
Usually such a family group eats together, does business together, they have joint property, and sometimes they even work together. Such a family or group is united not only by strong kinship feelings, but also there is a so-called "code of honor", which includes family responsibilities and social ties.
Each family member highly values the well-being and position of the family in society, realizing that his own well-being is completely dependent on the family. Egyptians know that only one large family can cope with life's difficulties and that it is simply impossible to live without relatives and strong relationships.
In the family, everyone helps and supports each other, and this is the main thing without which one cannot live in this world. The Egyptian family rests precisely on feelings of affection, common affairs and interests. A family is strength, and a person without a family is a weak and incapable person.
Of course, there are no ideal relationships within the family in Egypt, disagreements can always arise, but it is impossible to take offense at relatives and quarrels are quickly forgotten. However, if the matter concerns the insult of one of the family members by a stranger, then revenge, blood feud can already take place, and cases of real war between several families are not uncommon.
If one of the family members is offended, then men are ready to do anything to take revenge on the offender. As a result, it is worth thinking several times before insulting someone, knowing that this may be followed by a bloody massacre with the offender himself and with his family members. Even now, such cases of family violence are not uncommon, and this applies not only to Egyptian villages, but also in cities such family violence can be encountered.
In the Egyptian family, kinship relations only along the male line matter, even the wife's children, if they are not sons, they are absolutely strangers. Although in principle they belong to the family and it is assumed that they also have the right to help, support and companionship.
Until some time it was believed that a son can be judged only by the position of his father and not even called by his name. Relations between older and younger brothers were highly appreciated in Egypt. This relationship is similar to that of a father and son, because the support of the elders was very strong.
The independence of children was not recognized in Egypt. They had to completely submit to the will of their father. Today, the parent's power has begun to weaken somewhat.
However, in any case, the main dignity of a young man is considered to be deep reverence for his elders, his father and his brothers, and young people are well aware that in due time, they can be awarded the same honor. Children are not brought up in severity, and if children honor and obey their father, then in return they receive the warmest feelings.
When the time comes for a son to get married in Egypt, they take this moment very seriously. The man must take full responsibility for the maintenance of the family, and the wedding itself requires significant expenses. More often it happens that young people are not able to immediately resolve issues with the costs of getting married, therefore they are forced to collect funds for this event for many years.
In Egypt, weddings are common between cousins and brothers, both on the mother's side and on the father's side, and it is believed that such marriages are the best, because young people know each other almost from childhood and it will be easier for them to live in marriage and it will be easier to get along with each other. friend. This is all the more good because such marriages take place within one large family.
Muslim customs require parents to choose a mate for their children. However, now more and more they began to reckon with the opinion of the young people themselves. The bride is chosen on the basis of her beauty, her housekeeping skills and the position of her family.
It should be noted that all Egyptians and especially women are very beautiful, but in the first place for a man is still a woman's ability to cope with household chores, her moral principles and personal qualities. The beauty of a girl then already fades into the background, but every man wants to see a very beautiful and slender woman next to him, because sexual relations are also of no small importance.
