Ancient Egypt Constitution

Blog by Egyptologist Mohamed Fahmy

In the midst of current affairs in Egypt where people are debating over the constitution that has been set before them to vote on, I would like to present to you one of the oldest, if not the oldest constitution in history.

I think you will see once you have read all 42 points we could all take a lesson in how we should conduct ourselves.

Here is the main constitution that has been set for thousands of years by Ancient Egypt with Maat (the Goddess of Justice & Human Rights) as the protector over it as shown in the picture.

The principles are:
1. I live for Justice
2. I appreciate beauty
3. I spread peace
4. I live for God and keep my offerings to God
5. I confirm that life is sacred
6. I must speak honestly

19. I must give charity
20. I must give happiness and joy to my family
21. I must speak the truth
22. I must speak good about others
23. I must be moderate in my feelings
24. I must not commit adultery
25. I must maintain my relationship with people
26. I must always be kind in dealing with others

31. I must treat people equally
32. I love all
33. I must be civilized

Dahabiya Dream Review

I just returned home from a cruise on the Dahabiyya Dream from Luxor to Aswan and back to Luxor in October 2016. I can HIGHLY recommend the company "Explore Travel and Cruises" and this cruise on the Dahabiya Dream. Yes, it costs more than the big river cruise ships, but you get so much more out of the experience that it is more than worth the difference. It really is the best way to experience the Nile between Luxor and Aswan. The boat is gorgeous, the staff is excellent, the itinerary is flawless. You will probably only take one cruise on the Nile, so do yourself a favor and book the trip on the Dahabiya Dream.
