People in Egypt (1 of 3)
Islam permeates Egyptian life. It's manifested not in a strictly authoritarian manner as in Saudi Arabia - Egyptians love enjoying themselves too much for that - but it's there at an almost subconscious level. Ask after someone's health and the answer is 'Alhamdulallah', (Fine. Praise to God). Arrange to meet tomorrow and it's 'in sha'Allah', (God willing).
