Violent Muslim customs are known around the world, the attitude towards a woman as to the thing is shocking to many people. Egyptian society can rightfully be called a masculine society, because here, as anywhere, all Muslim traditions and customs are alive and revered, not only in the family, but also in public life.
A woman in Islam is considered a vicious being, her whole being is full of vices and temptations. Not only in rural areas, but also in cities too, laws require a woman to cover all her body and hair, you can only leave your hands, feet and face bare.
However, it has always been so in all that if there are prohibitions, then this entails an even greater desire to violate these prohibitions. After all, for some reason holding their women in such rigor, Muslim men with pleasure look at foreign women who are easily and freely dressed.
Men and women begin to talk about sexual relations in Egypt from earliest childhood, when girls are taught how to indulge their husband and obey him, fulfill all his desires. Among men, this is generally the number one topic, because premarital relations are completely banned, and especially questions of a sexual theme concern those men who very late marry.
Marriage for the Egyptians is a very serious and important step, because it speaks of permanence and stability. Egyptians prefer a quiet family home, rather than some life changes. The family in Egypt consists not only of the husband, wife and children as usual.
The Egyptian family is a united family group, which includes all the male relatives. At the head of this group is the oldest man in the family and his wife, this group also includes their sons with their numerous families.
Usually such a family group together takes food, work together in business, they have joint property, and even they sometimes work together. Such a family or group is united not only by strong family feelings, but also there is a so-called “code of honor”, which includes family responsibilities and social ties.
Each member of the family very much appreciates the well-being and position of the family in society, understanding that his own well-being depends entirely on the family. The Egyptians know that only one large family can cope with life’s difficulties and that it is simply impossible to live without relatives and strong relationships.
In the family, everyone helps and supports each other, and this is the main thing without which one can not live in this world. The Egyptian family is based on feelings of attachment, common deeds and interests. A family is a force, and a man without a family is a weak person, and he is not capable of anything.
Of course, there are no ideal relationships within the family in Egypt, there can always be disagreements, but it’s impossible to take offense at relatives and quarrels are quickly forgotten. However, if it concerns the insulting of one of the members of the family by a stranger, then revenge, blood feud, and cases of real war between several families can already take place.
If one of the members of the family is insulted, then the men are ready to do anything to take revenge on the offender. Because of this, it is worthwhile to think several times before insulting someone, knowing that this may be followed by a massacre of the insultor himself and his family members. Even now such cases of family reprisals are frequent, and this applies not only to the Egyptian villages, but in urban areas one can face such family disagreements.
In the Egyptian family, only the male relationship is relevant, even the children of the wife, if these are not sons, these are absolutely strangers. Although in principle they belong to the family, and it is assumed that they also have the right to help, support and friendly relations.
Until some time it was believed that the son can be assessed only by the position of his father and not even called him by name. High regard in Egypt for the relationship of older and younger brothers.Such relationships are similar to those of the father and son, because the support of the elders was very strong.
Egypt did not recognize the independence of children. They had to completely submit to the will of their father. To date, the power of the parent has become somewhat weakened.
However, in any case, the main virtue of a young man is the deep veneration of the elders, the father and his brothers, and young people perfectly understand that in due time, and they can be awarded the same honor. Children are not brought up in severity and if the children honor and obey the father, then they receive the warmest feelings from him in return.
When the time comes for a son in Egypt to marry, then at this point they come very seriously. A man must take full responsibility for the maintenance of the family, and the wedding itself requires considerable expenses. It often happens that young people are not able to immediately resolve issues with the costs of marriage, so they have to collect money for this event for many years.
In Egypt, weddings are held between cousins and brothers, both on the part of the mother and on the part of the father, and it is considered that such marriages are best, because young people know each other almost from the very childhood and it will be easier for them to live in marriage and easier to get along together. Moreover, it is good that such marriages take place within one large family.
Muslim customs require that parents themselves choose a couple for their children. However, now the opinion of the young people has been increasingly taken into account. The bride is chosen on the basis of her beauty, her ability to farm and the position of her family.
It should be noted that all Egyptians and especially women are very beautiful, but in the first place for a man is still the ability of a woman to cope with domestic chores, her moral principles and personal qualities. The beauty of the girl then already fades into the background, but every man wants to see next to a very beautiful and slender woman, because sexual relations are also of no small importance.
