#Ramadan Arabian Nights 2016 : King Rokn El-Zaman's tale "Ep.4"

Here is our fourth episode of our Ramadan Radio Arabian nights tale for this year , the tale of King Rokn El-Zaman.
First of all, refresh your memory with last night's episode.
Second , did you notice how this year's episodes were written by Abbas El-Aswani in perfect Classical Arabic, unlike Taher Abu Fasha who used the Egyptian Arabic freely !?
Anyhow enough of the chitchat and let's head to the 766th episode of our Ramadan Radio Arabian nights which was produced by the Egyptian State Radio.

Crown Prince Safwan told his father King Rokn El-Zaman about how his brother Hassan used to visit  a family of shepherds every day and the king is angry on how his younger son acted softly.
King Rokn El-Zaman confronted his wife who did not like how he treated Hassan and she was on the verge of telling him the truth that Safwan was not actually his son but she stopped at the last minute.
Prince Hassan defended himself but his father , the King did not like it.

Despite his anger , the king takes his crown prince Safwan to the Diwan and the 18-years old prince began to act like a judge to resolve fights among the people.
Arabian Nights

His first case was the case of Dahman , his real father who was accused of theft by some merchant in the Kingdom.
And Safwan sentenced his real father Dahman to jail in some sad irony.
At the same time , his real mother Kawkab walked the streets of the kingdom as a beggar who seeks help. She left her husband Dahman after selling her baby.

The Shahbandar of merchants in the Kingdom "The chief of Merchants" spotted the poor Kawkab and decided to help her and took her to his house to work as a maid.

We are introduced to the evil corrupted vizier and his assistant who began to force people in the city to give them money. They want to get rid of both princes but do not know how.  
I do not know but I feel we are going to have a dramatic season of Ramadan Radio Arabian Nights just like Alaa El-Aswani's novels.
