#Ramadan Arabian Nights #2013 : The tale of Prince Amar El Din and King Zanzibar

I know that this may sound inappropriate to post something like this when we live in such critical times in Egypt and have got not less 100 killed in clashes over Morsi ousting.
I feel sad when I see Egypt polarized and hate is spreading like epidemic. I am praying to God that things in Ramadan would calm and some divine miracle happens because honestly we will need something divine not earthly anymore to unit this nation. Ramadan is a gateway indeed and this is why I am keeping the Egyptian Chronicles blog annual tradition.
And we are back once again with the Ramadan Radio Arabian nights. We are back with the original Scheherazade of Egyptian Radio Zozo Nabil and legendary Radio host and producer Mohamed Shaaban akak Papa Sharo. This month we will have another story inspired by the Arabian nights book. It is called “The late of Prince Amar El Din and King Zanzibar”. This is the first episode. It is 15 minutes audio clip in Arabic. For Non Arabic speakers I will write below a short synopsis.

This is the 292th night from the Egyptian Radio Arabian night. In this night King Shahryar was on the verge of ordering the execution of the amazing Scheherazade but thanks to her story telling tricks , she pulled him to her endless world of tales to survive for another day.
King Shahryar wanted to know the story of Prince Amar El Din and how he conquered an evil Jinn queen thus he spared the life of Scheherazade for another night ..and the saga goes on.
The story of Prince Amar El Din starts in the island of Fire where a mighty cruel king rules. This king’s name is Zanzibr and he has no heir. The cruel king thinks that his wife the queen can not bear a child and he wants to marry another woman but unfortunately there is one problem.His religion does not allow polygamy and he can not force the priests in the island to make an exclusion. His wicked vizier thinks in another solution : To kill the queen.
