28-Reactions From Abraham To Joseph:

   I heard from my grandmother and father that my grandfather Salem had a younger brother called Abraham. On his death bead he returned from his absence to tell Abraham to look after his boy Elsadek. The attendant found it strange because there was a baby in the lap of his wife that should have been taken this well. They told him their minds but he didn't reply and died. Elsadek my father said to me, My father did so because I was the only one of my brothers who was interested in the farming of our land. My brothers didn't like farming and learned other jobs. 
   When I joined the M.T.College I knew that the general was called Abraham Saleem. He was an engineer and he was the one who established that college to benefit the military forces with the superior minds of Egypt. So in the adds of that college they wrote,"The Scientists of Future". In the first day this general received us in the land of the battalion and welcomed us as new cadets with high words. Just after he left the barbers started their work with our heads. The chief of all cadets of the college was Abraham Victorious.
   One day the chief cadet of my company said to me a very weird thing. When we was in the period of new cadets he went to Abraham Victorious to handle him the count with my name as absent. He frowned and said to him,"Don't you ever again write this one absent.Understand!"  So I was counted as attendant in every assembly until the period of new cadets finished.
    When that period finished I wore the military uniform and returned to Alexandria to my parents. Near my home a man called Abu Abraham met me. As he was unable to distinguish between a cadet and a soul in the army he said,"Congratulation Reverend Soul"  I wished I could correct him. But I smiled and shook his hand with thanks and left. My father was very proud of me. The wonder that should be told here is that my grandfather was an official guard in the village, and my father was a policeman in Alexandria, and I became an officer in the army.  
    In the time of the new period I passed by an event with the lentil. Once I was sitting on the table of food with other students and the old student noticed that I didn't eat the lentil. He asked me,Why didn't you    eat the lentil? I replied, I don't like it. He said, in our military life we accept all foods, eat the lentil. I said, I don't like it and I didn't eat it with my family. He spoke with anger, eat it now, if you disobey I will punish you and make you a show for all cadets. I obeyed and I ate under his watch. For my surprise I found out it was very delicious. So from that time on the lentil became my best food on the table. 
   When I was a child of four years my parents were living in a house adjacent to the house of the uncle of my mother who was called Laban relative to his work in selling the milk. His wife was very tender to me. Whenever she saw me she took me inside and gave me a glass of milk. They used to breed the sheep on the roof of their house. But several times the conflict rose between Al Laban and my father because of the electricity which we took from him. Also the conflict rose between my father and the owner of the house because of our relative. So my father had to transfer us to another house. It was for a man called Abu Salama ( Is he well?)
   When I was a boy of 10 years I had friendship with a student from the primary school. His name was Mizo The Father of All. I visited him home many times and he did the same to me. He continued with me in the preparatory school then the relation was cut. Then the relation with his big brother started with me when he met me in the public center of culture. I liked his cultured mind.
    When I was in the third year in the M.T. College a fellow cadet came suddenly, while I was speaking with others, and pushed me to the ground and fixed me. I struggled with him and pushed him away, "Why?" " I play with you." " You are crazy."  The result was very bad to my knee so that I lamed several days before I recovered.
   When I was in the secondary school I returned home and I felt sad to see my father inside the well of wastes of our house to empty it. I was sad that I was unable to cooperate with him because I had studied the microbes. Later I told him about the microbes. He said, leave it to Allah; he can save me.
     In the days of my MT College, once I spent the weekend at my uncle and cousins in Almaady. While I was walking with my uncle to go back to the college a group of high class girls on the side of the road said loudly," Oh how smart!" The surprise bewildered me. When we passed I asked my uncle, What is your opinion? He replied with a bad word I can't repeat.
     When I became a new officer in the first unit the Leader gathered all officers and appointed me the officer  responsible for the store of food and kitchen. I said, Did I studied engineering for five years to get a job like this? He said, you should get management experience in all the affairs of the military life in the start. 
     When I was in the Navy College as a teacher in the department of signal the leader once said to other officers standing with him, This Salem is genius, you can't predict what he can do in the future. I saluted him, Thanks sir for this high trust in me.

27-Reactions From The Period of Noah

The events from this part are little. Read the story of Noah in the Bible to understand the reactions here. When I was a boy of about 10 years old my father bought a little house in an area full of fields. These fields got the water from a stream that was connected to a wide canal by a gate. The land was agricultural land that when it rained it became muddy. But there was little canals to take the water of the rain away. 
   One day the main stream flooded with water in away that it made the water spread in our street and the adjacent streets. The water was too much to be helped by the canal of rain. So it was a hard time for the people of the area to walk easily in the street. They hit palm by palm blaming the workers whose job was to watch the gate of the stream. Next day the earth could absorb the water and the people felt released.
   One day when I was about 11 years old I went with the boys of the area to the near field of Palm trees. We got stones and throw the dates to get some of it. The very old man, the owner of the field suddenly appeared and ran to catch the boys. All ran away to escape. But the old man ran after them a long distance and stopped to rest. The boys also stopped looking at him. The old man didn't stop directing bad words toward them. And in anger he took off his garment. As he was without inner cloth all the boys laughed. I didn't laugh at that view and said to them the man became crazy, let us go to our houses from the other opening of our street and we ran away leaving him saying the bad words constantly. The wonder which I noticed later was that the wife of that man was known among boys by the name Askria which is pronounced in English as drunk.But in Arabic it is for  soldier or policeman.
   Our Street was just behind the long factory of potter and bricks. It was with a very high tower to exit the thick smoke in space. When I was young I remarked that there was a little rod of iron at the top of that tower. I asked my fellows about its benefit but they didn't know. Later, when I joined the high school and took an idea about electricity I knew that that rod was made as a protection from the striking with lightning.

26-Reactions from From The Period of David

   I demanded to browse all my present reactions to all known actions in the bible to answer the very important question: where did I went after my resurrection to heaven. I was very anxious to know this in detail. I asked had I went to another planet in the space. I recalled that I had read a story by the name the kingdom of Darkness. In it I read about a man that had life in two worlds, one on earth and the other in another planet. So I  thought of it to see if it happened with me. I reached the answer later. Now let's see the reactions to the period of David and Saul.
    There is a wonder here. My parents moved to live in different houses in Alexandria and they were seven. Among them three with a name pointing to Jerusalem. When I was less than two yeas old we lived in the house of Abu Solomon (i.e David). There I heard that Solomon was bad that he used to go on the roof and whistle to the girls at the other buildings. Later after many years I heard that Solomon became a chief in a big company.
   When I was about eight years we lived in the house of David in a place called Almansheiht Algdedaht. It was organized as several parallel streets. Many times the fight with stones rose up between the boys of our street and the boys of other streets. I took part in those fights and I noticed that the stones directed at me came slowly and I could avoid them. But most stones I threw could touch the bodies of the opposing boys. And always the fight finished by the interfere of a man from the area.
   When I was in the new house in Palestine Street I got more reactions. There was no name in Islam as Saul. But it was brought in my life as follows: The cousin of my father lived with his wife many years unable to get a child alive. People advised him to name the next child by a low name, as Sack Cloth which in Arabic is (Saul). When he did so he got a son and the child lived and could come in my reactions. 
   One day when I was about 16 years old Abu (Father) Saul was in a visit to us. He entered a hard discussion with my father and they spoke with loud voice in blaming. Suddenly Abu Saul fell down fainted on the ground. My father said the case returned to him and he inserted a cloth in his mouth by force. And he caught his hands fixing him and instructed my mother to fix his legs. So he was trembling and was like a piece of wood. After minutes he recovered and came to his senses. And it passed.
     In another visit he brought his son Saul with him and asked me to teach him. I agreed and he was to come to me daily on the roof of our house. At that time I was in the secondary school. Later I was graduated as an officer and I was the first in the street to be an officer. By the pass of the years Saul also became an officer and the people said," Even Saul has become an officer too.!"  
    One day I returned from my M.T. College to spend the week end with my parents. And they told me that Abu Saul was killed. He was guarding a safe and the thieves attacked him. I felt sorry for him.
    After being with a job in Alexandria I stayed with my parents. One day I heard the noise of a fight in the street and I looked from the balcony. There was a crowd of people around Saul and another grown youth. I got down to separate between them. But the youth directed dangerous insult to the religion of the mother of Saul. I couldn't control my self and hit him on his mouth," Shut up!"  The youth bent down and kept there for a while then ran a way to the far end of Rafah Street and continued his bad words. The people gathered and brought us together to reconcile among us.  When I told them what he said they came against him and ordered him to apologize to me. 
    One day I was in conflict with my wife. My voice was loud and the neighbor with his wife came to calm us. The man said, this is normal. I rebuked him. His motive was good but I was out of control. Later when I came to my mind and met the man I said, " In anger sometimes I become ( Geliate ) which means wrong attitude. Later I knew that the Spirit recalled the past name of this man in that way and he was the one who had played the role of Goliath.
