Seven habits modern Egyptians inherited from the Pharaohs


By: Mahmoud Abdel-Aziz · January 14, 2015
Despite numerous civilisations that came across the lands of Egypt, some of the ancient Pharaonic habits and rites are still living and performed by modern Egyptians. Some of these customs and traditions were prohibited by Islam and Christianity, yet they are still performed by a handful of Egyptians today.

1. Funerary and burial habits

The family of someone deceased in ancient Egypt used to carry the deceased’s coffin from their house to the grave site or the place of mummification. Special recitals from the ancient Book of the Dead accompanied all of the funerary rites.

The Book of the Dead is an ancient Egyptian funerary text consisting of a number of magic spells or model answers intended to assist a dead person’s journey through the underworld.

In Upper Egypt, some specific recitals are performed for the same reason, however, the way they are done is purely Islamic. Yet the whole funerary atmosphere is similar to that performed in Ancient Egypt.

Also, Egyptians kept the same idea of ancestors’ burial traditions, including temple-like buildings and burial chambers.

2. Breaking the pot:

If someone whose presence is unwelcome and has just left the place, it is very common to hear the expression, “Break a pot after him,” to stave off another visit.

This habit or expression is related to a Pharaonic belief in which a pot was broken to prevent the soul from returning back to some person’s deceased body.

Usually, this broken pot can be found in many tombs of ancient Egyptians.




3. Offerings:

In Ancient Egypt, people used to provide offerings to the poor as a way to seek mercy for someone’s deceased soul.

If the deceased was rich, the offerings were provided on a daily basis. If poor, the offerings were provided only on feasts and special occasions.

Until this moment, offerings to seek mercy for someone’s deceased soul are still provided, especially in Upper Egypt. It is just known as “Rahma” or mercy.

The most common offerings are food, especially baked ones, which are made with the same way and ingredients of thousands of years ago.
