The most intriguing books are perhaps the controversial; the books that society bans for years before realising that nothing can escape the hands of readers.

At first, the flow of events is no different from other novelsand nothing out of the ordinary happens. Nothing even seems controversial about the appearance of Cain and Abel at the start of the book, with different names but essentially the same story.

The trust fund then becomes an obsession for all the neighbours and Gebelawi is treated as some sort of a role model for everyone, someone more than just an ancestor. Embezzlers, tyrants, and the greedy take all the money by force and the rest of the city is left in poverty, hunger, and misery.

When the city inhabitants pray to God, their concept of a deity is never explained and it unravels the mystery of the God they perceive. In one of the recent editions of the book, Islamist thinker and former Secretary General of the International Union for Muslim Scholars Mohammed Salim Al-Awa wrote on the back cover of the book that Mahfouz never explicitly stated that Gebelawi is a figure of God. Mahfouz has never in his life doubted the presence of God, Al-Awa said and a reader may understand what they want to understand but one should never doubt a Muslim writer who dedicated his life to literature.

Another point of view suggests that Gebelawi is only a symbol for religion and he said that in the book, people in the various generations perceive this religion and come to terms with it. These characters appear almost identical to the stories of the prophets Adam, Moses, Jesus, and Mohammad.

By reading the different stories and with time, it becomes easy to think of these characters as the symbol of the religious figures in the society rather than actual prophets of God.

Characters whose dedication, wisdom, and pure-heartedness suggest that a society can easily follow with blind eyes, unquestionably. He knew how to make faithful bookworms out of readers who may be reading him for the first time. If anything, Mahfouz knew how to write and contribute to true literature of the mind. With his precise refined Arabic, it is hard, almost impossible, to find an author who would be able to outdo his writings. His twisted yet mind-boggling ideas become challenge to ignore because they at least inspire us to write more, create other worlds, and stay hopeful that literature will always have something to offer.
