#Ramadan Arabian Nights 2016 : King Rokn El-Zaman's tale "Ep.2"

Abbas El-Aswani
And we continue our tale , the tale of King Rokn El-Zaman and his family which we started last night.
But before starting our next episode which was the 764th episode of the Egyptian State Radio's
Arabian Nights show, we will stop a little bit with our author this season : Abbas El-Aswani.
Abbas El-Aswani is currently known as the father of one of Egypt's best-selling, award-winning and politically controversial authors and writers Alaa El-Aswani.
Still before being overshadowed by his son's name, Lawyer Abbas El-Aswani was already known as renowned writer and author in the 1960s and 1970s before his death.
Originally from Aswan , Abbas El-Aswani came and settled down in Cairo where he worked as a lawyer and later as a author.
In 1972 , Abbas Al-Aswani was among the receptiants of the State award for literature.
Now to our tale , the tale of King Rokn El-Zaman and his family.

Famous and experienced midwife "Dada" shocked Queen Nourhan when she told her that her pregnancy was actually a false one and she was just imagining that she got a baby inside her.
Despite her shock , the Queen asked Dada not to tell the King who was technically over the moon. Dada kept her mouth shut indeed when King Rokn El-Zaman visited the Queen's suite.
The King asked the old Midwife when his wife would give birth and Dada answered wisely and enigmatically "God only knows my lord"
After his short visit, Queen Nourhan decided to tell him the truth and leave the palace next day because she could not bear the idea that she would be the second wife.
Nourhan and her old maid noticed that the old midwife left the Palace but her stuff was still there so she was probably coming back.
The old midwife was walking down in the city trying to find a solution for the Queen's huge problem.
While walking , Dada found drunken Dahman who did not like having a new born baby.
A diabolic idea came to the old midwife and she offered the selfish man to buy his son in return for a lot of money and not to try to know anything about him in the future.
Dahman did not care much for his son and totally agreed for the sake of the money without a second thought.
He did not even care for the pleas of his poor wife to leave baby boy alone.
As you expect and think , Dada saved the fate of the Queen in the worst ways ever and Dahman's baby boy because King Rokn El-Zaman's crown prince.
The King an Queen named their boy Safwan but that was not the end where everybody lives happily ever after.
After more than a year of having Safwan , Queen Nourhan suddenly became pregnant and gave birth to a baby boy.
This sounds like a dramatic Indian film I would say
