#Ramadan Arabian Nights 2016 : King Rokn El-Zaman's tale "Ep.30"

It is our finale tonight and we will know the fate of King Rokn El-Zaman.
But first , I would like to share this very rare TV interview for late renowned author Abbas Al-Aswani in 1960s along three other renowned figures in Egyptian culture : Poet and cartoonist Salah Jahin , journalist and satirist Mahmoud Saadany as well comedian Mohamed Reda.
The TV host was famous 1960s movie star and journalist Lobna Abdel Aziz who ironically starred decades year in the TV adaption of Alaa Abbas Al-Aswani's best-selling "The Yacoubian building". 

Now we return to our tale, the tale of King Rokn El-Zaman which Abbas Al-Aswani wrote for Egyptian State Radio in the late 1960s.
You can listen after the break to the finale of this Ramadan Radio Arabian tale , which was 789th episode of the famous "One Thousand and One-night show".

And the commander of Kingdom's armies asks Omar Shah on his real proof on how Samsem got rid of King Rokn El-Zaman. He does not believe the ex-Chief Judge except Omar Shah surprises by telling him that the King and his son Prince Hassan were actually at his place.
The commander agrees to help.

Thousand and one night show in 1980s 

Yes, it turned out when old Shepherd Salman told the king and the prince about what happened to him, Rokn El-Zaman realized that he got an ally back at the kingdom.
Prince Hassan then orders Farkuk to transfer them all to Omar Shah's place.
Hours later, the coronation starts.
And Farafash decides to help her friends by turning all the guards and the Vizier's men to cats.
Then just as the Vizier is going to announce  Safwan as a king when Chief Judge Omar Shah stops and King Rokn El-Zaman orders both Samsem and Safwan's arrest.
Days later, Queen Nourhan asks to see Safwan who tells her that Samsem forced him to do so. Queen Nourhan brings his mother Kawkab who asked her and the king to forgive her son. As Nourhan has not forgotten how she considered Safwan was her son , she decided to forgive them
King Rokn El-Zaman orders that Safwan and his mother live in a faraway place in the kingdom.
And everybody lived happily ever after :)
That's it, folks ;)
Till next Ramadan inshallah
