P7683sm El Morsi Abu El Abbas Mosque

P7683sm El Morsi Abu El Abbas Mosque

El-Mursi Abul-Abbas Mosque (Arabic: ???? ?????? ??? ???????) is a famous mosque in Alexandria, Egypt, which is dedicated to the Alexandrine Sufi saint el-Mursi Abul Abbas.

It is located in the Anfoushi neighborhood of Alexandria, near the Citadel of Qaitbay.

The most important historic mosque inAlexandria, Egypt, as well as a very beautiful one, is considered to be that of Abu El Abbas El Mursi. Constructed in 1775 by Algerians, it was built over the tomb of the thirteenth century Murcia Andalusan saint, Ahmed Abu al-Abbas al-Mursi (Abu'l 'Abbas) who joined and then lead, as a devout Sufi, the Shadhali brotherhood. Abu El Abbas El Mursi is in himself a very interesting story.

His entire name was Sheikh Shehab El Din Abu El Abbas Ahmed Ibn Umar Ibn Mohamed Al Ansary El Mursi. He was born in Andalusia (an autonomous district of Spain, the capital of whichis Seville) in 616 H (1219 AD) to a wealthy family in the trading business. He was therefore well educated, having been instructed in the Quran, Sunna and Shehab, and he grew up helping his father in the trading business. He was also known for his honesty and for his many contributions to the needy.

He left Spain with his family in 640 H (1242 AD) in the face of increasing Christian control over Spain. He was accompanied by his father, brother, and his mother. However, his parents did not make it to Tunisia, their destination. In Tunisia, Shehab heard about El Sheikh Abu El Hassan El Shazly and he accompanied him in his journey to Alexandria. Many Muslim scholars and religious people chose to live in Alexandria after theChristian began to dominate Spain. El Sheikh El Shazly was fond of Shehab and in return Abu al-Abbas became one of his best students. Abu al-Abbas married El Shazly’s daughter and had two daughters and a son from her. Shehab Abu El Abbas El Mursi lived 43 years in Alexandria as a Muslim teacher until he died in 686 H (1286 AD).

The site of the modern mosque has a long history. At first, it was only the tomb of Abu El Abbas El Mursi, which remains today on its original site. The tomb was placed in a small building near the eastern harbor of Alexandria. In the year 1307 AD, El Sheikh Zein El Din Ibn El Qattan, one of the richest traders of Alexandria, visited the tomb. Reverent of the Muslim scholar, he ordered his men to build a mausoleum and a dome for the tomb. He also built a fine mosque with a small square minaret. He even funded an Iman for the small mosque. The tomb was placed under the dome to the right hand side of the entrance. The mosque became a place of pilgrimage for many Muslims from Egypt and Morocco who passes through Alexandria during their Hej journey to and from Mecca. However, by 1477, the mosque was neglected and in bad need of repair. Therefore, when Gaqmas El Zahry, the ruler ofAlexandria, visited it, he ordered that the mosque be renovated. At the same time, he built himself a tomb alongside that of Abu al-Abbas, where he also was buried after his death. Once again in 1596 AD, the mosque was renewed after a visit by Sheikh Abu al Abbas El Khurzemy, who also built himself a tomb in the complex. However, though the original structure does incorporate older elements, it was Sheikh Abu el Hassan El Maghreby who, after visiting the small mosque in1775, ordered the building of the current one on this site. Nevertheless, by 1863, the current mosque was in a bad state once more, unfit for holding prayer services. Therefore, Ahmed El Kakhakhny, one ofAlexandria's most famous builders, renewed the current mosque and afterwards, a number of the houses that were built up around the mosque were removed to make more space. Afterwards, Ali Mubarak, and educational leader in Egypt, described it as, "wide, strong, and fine looking and the practice of Islam is being done there in its best manner." By now, the mosque was operated under the Awqaf (Waqf), a governmental endowment for Islamic affairs, which provided Imans as well as caretakers. A mulid, or Islamic religious festival was also established to celebrate the birth of Abu El Abbas, which lasted eight days every year. King Faroug, whose aim it was to build Cairo into the Paris on the Nile, also sought to makeAlexandria the Jewel of the Mediterranean. There, he built a wide square known as "Midan el Masaged", or the "Square of Mosque" covering some 43,200 square meters. The Mosque of Abu el Abbas el Mursi was the focal point and center of this square, and it is surrounded by five other mosques, among which is that of al-Busiri and Yaqut al- 'Arshi. As part of this building program, the mosque was once again rebuilt by the government in the beautiful Arabian style that was popular during theAyyubid Period, the time when Abu El Abbas El Mursi first came to Alexandria from Spain. They also paid special attention to the mausoleum of the saint during these renovations, leaving it in its original position.

This was a major rebuilding of the mosque. The w

It is difficult to make a definitive attribution to Caligula without his characteristic hairstyle as a guide, but by means of elimination and comparisons with other portraits as well as his documented Egyptianizing proclivities it is possible to make a strong case for such an attribution. From Augustus onward, the Roman emperor was the de facto pharaoh of Egypt and statues and reliefs of many of them have survived. Caligula is the only emperor in the first century to be young enough to be so portrayed as in this sculpture. The small mouth and chin seen here fit well with his other known portraits.

From early youth Caligula had shown a great inclination for the products, myths, and men of Egypt, a culture then greatly admired and greatly feared by the Romans. For instance, we know that all his servants were Egyptians, and that Helicon, his most faithful and influential freedman, was an Alexandrian. But shortly after his elevation to absolute power this admiration for the land of the Ptolemies and Pharaohs became more of an obsession that impelled him to attempt to bring his own reign into connection with the policies of his great-grandfather Mark Antony. He sought to introduce into Rome the ideas, the customs, the sumptuousness, and the institutions of the Ptolemaic pharaohic monarchy, to make of his palace a court similar to that of Alexandria, and of himself a divine king, worshipped by his subjects.

Historians have represented this intention as the perverse delirium of an unbridled sensuality, but there was perhaps more politics in his madness than perversity; for it was an attempt to introduce into Rome the dynastic marriages between brothers and sisters which had been the constant tradition of the Ptolemies and the Pharaohs of Egypt. For centuries in Egypt, this practice was looked upon as a sovereign privilege that brought the royal dynasty into relationship with the gods. By means of it, the royal family preserved the semi-divine purity of its blood.

Caligula now decided to transplant this custom to Rome with all the religious pomp of the Egyptian monarchy, and thus transform the family of Augustus, which had been merely the most eminent family of the Roman aristocracy, into a dynasty of gods and demigods the focus of which would be Caligula and his sister Drusilla like another Arsinoe and Ptolemy, whom the Alexandrian throngs had worshiped on the banks of the Nile as Osiris and Isis. The idea had already matured in his mind at the end of the year 37. This is proved by a will made at the time of an illness that he contracted in the autumn of the first year of his rule. In this will he appointed Drusilla heir of his empire, a folly in light of Roman law, which did not admit women to the government, but it proves that Caligula had already thought and acted like an Egyptian king. He also formerly declared her a goddess, to whom all the cities must pay honors. He had a temple built for her, and appointed a body of twenty priests, ten men and ten women, to celebrate her worship; he decreed that her birthday should be a holiday, and he ordered the statue of Venus in the Forum to be carved in her likeness. He rebuilt part of the Isaeum Campense in Rome in Egyptian style and set up a statue of Drusilla as Isis. He also renovated the Serapaeum in the Campus Martius with a shrine to the divine couple.
