Ramadan Arabian Nights 2023: Tale of Mando “Mando at the Greater Bear’s court” #EP24

Ramadan Karim😀

The Greater Bear, also known as Ursa Major or "El-Dobb El-Akbar" in Arabic, is a well-known constellation that has been recognized by ancient civilizations, including the Egyptian, Babylonian, and Assyrian.

This constellation, which is the third largest in the sky, was depicted by the ancient Egyptians as a large bull plowing the earth led by a Nile crocodile.

The Greater Bear had significant religious and agricultural symbolism in the lives of ancient Predynastic and Dynastic Egyptians, who believed that the four sons of Horus resided in Ursa Major.

Interestingly, Arab astronomers named this constellation "El-Dobb El-Akbar" due to its resemblance to a bear, which highlights the cultural influence of this constellation on Islamic civilization. The Greater Bear was also included in Arab Muslim astronomer Mohamed Ibn Hilal's famous brass celestial globe.

In the meantime, let's revisit El-Anwar planet with our Mando.

Recall last night's episode and then dive into the 24th instalment of our tale, which is the 486th episode of Egyptian radio "One Thousand and One Nights."


Mando completed his tour of the wondrous Planet "Al-Anwar" and marvelled at its inhabitants' achievements. He inquired about their methods of agriculture and industry, curious about how they cultivated their crops. Q demonstrated the incredible power of their technology, growing a full-grown apple tree in mere seconds using rays alone.

Suddenly, the royal guards arrived, commanding A and Q to bring Mando to the Royal Palace immediately. King El-Doob El-Akbar had been informed of Mando's visit and was extremely concerned about his wisdom.

At the Royal Palace, the court deliberated the grave implications of Earthlings discovering the secrets of life. They feared the humans' destructive tendencies and the potential harm they could cause to the universe if they gained this knowledge. The court ultimately concluded that attacking Earth and its people was the only way to safeguard the universe from their evil.

However, before taking any action, they needed to hear from Earthlings A and Q. Mando was brought before the court, interrogated about his wisdom, which he did not comprehend. He requested the king to enlighten him about his history from the beginning.

The king agreed to Mando's request, and tomorrow, inshallah, we shall witness King El-Dobb El-Akbar's reaction and the court's verdict after hearing Mando's story. Will Earth and its people be spared, or will they face the wrath of the universe? Only time will tell.

Here is the episode televised.

Till tomorrow inshallah.
