Palm tree's mother

El Fayoum in 1 Aug. 2010

           Where I had grown up in nature embrace in charming Fayoum countryside which         having scenery nature,  mild weather and moderate climate in most of the year , where I was always surrounded by green color which I really love it.

so this green color has pushed me since I was young to sit a long time in meditation and reflection.

            Among many things I look at the (Palm tree) through its loftiness, dignity , generosity and its tenderness, It is enough that God the Almighty generosity mentioned it in the  Holy Quran and also enough the relationship between palm tree's trunk and Prophet Muhammad PBUH when he was leaning on the palm tree's trunk when giving the speech to all the Muslims and when they set up a platform for the Prophet PBUH , the trunk was cried because of remoteness the Prophet PBUH from it, then the Prophet assured him that he will be  his companion in Paradise, also Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) advised us to eat daily seven dates in the morning and break our fasting with dates for  its multiple benefits.

         I was meditated palm tree and enumerate its  gifts to humans, such as (benefits and advantages 'of  dates - furniture and cages to transport our purposes and our products are made of palm sticks - We cannot confine things  which are made ​​of palm fronds – ropes are made of Palm fibers  which is used in showering and cleanliness – Heart of Palm has many benefits by eating and extracting very cool  drink out of it, called { Legemie} which is known in Siwa oasis,  even Cores dates .... they use it in some places after drying and milling for making a drink as coffee) but I was wondering why generally still not getting use of  Argon or Sabat dates, as only use it in rural life as a sweeper.

         That question still in my mind until I met her, Haja Nabila (The mother of palm tree) She is Egyptian to the marrow, when you sit down with her, you will feel Pride and privilege because you sit with (Egypt), she is  as a simple as thinkers, and humble as scientists, perhaps age and years hindered her movement, but her mind in hard working movement also she was interested in only one thing, you feel from the intensity of her interesting as it is her legitimacy son or daughter.. It is palm tree, so she deserved to be the mother of palm tree, as she adore Palm tree and flatter in its gifts.

           When I visited her for the first time in her house in Alkaaabi village Sinours district in Fayoum governorate, and I exchanged dialogue with her, of course our conversation was focused on the palm tree and I found myself in front of a great information treasure and I found that finally I had the opportunity which I keep waiting for, to find an answer to my questions about dates Spath.

        Alhaja Nabila has explained extensively about Sabat dates and Argon, which consists of a strong and flexible tissue, it is characterized by ongoing softness, when you open Argon (which is the part that connects the dates with Palm tree) you find those tissues which you can control its thickness and accuracy and that we can use it for making Mattresses or some other relative things by using the wooden Looms so, the Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA) in Fayoum in cooperation with North South Consultant Exchange company (NSCE), to contract with specialized artist and they identified appointment with Alhaja Nabila and she  has explained all her thoughts to them, then trained a group of rural girls and women in one village located on Lake Qaroon which called Al namous village and it was marketing their product through Egypt Craft Center (ECC), which becomes now (Fair Trade Egypt.. FTE).

          After that Fayoum Agro Organic Development Association in cooperation with Creativity Development and Care of Talented Association (CDCTA) and Japanese JICA organization were trained two groups of girls and women in Fayoum on new craft which is (Argon models craft), in Al Basionia village of Fayoum district and Shakshouk village of Abshaway district  where are marketing their products on high level through Nefertari cosmetics company ( Dr. Mona Waheeb Al irian) who is a privileged members of Fayoum Agro Organic Development Association and she participated with Al Basionia group in development the first design  of Argon box, as well as the permanent partner of FAODA, (fair Trade Egypt organization).

        I invited all of you to raising up your caps with me and greeted (Palm tree mother) Alhaja Nabila who intends a good intention to teach generations and generations more crafts from palm tree which helped many families on burdens life and she makes her son Eng. Saeed adores palm tree who is training on palm tree's products inside and outside Egypt and he marketing its products at the highest level.
