Fuwwah, a small town with huge benefits!
It was named after one of Prophet Jacob’s grandsons. It is planted on the Rasheed branch as one of the Kafr El-Sheikh towns. Being on the shore of the Mediterranean and the western branch of the Nile helped Fuwwah to gain such importance. It was a bridge connecting the Crusaders’ rage to Egypt and vice versa! Fuwwah also -as the western entrance- protected Egypt through plenty of years! Even Its chimneys guided the ships coming across the Nile. Let’s explore the hidden town together and let it teach us a few things!

Fuwwah is a fighter!
Fuwwah’s people care for every tiny piece they inherited. Because of them, Fuwwah earned the third Islamic sanctuary after Cairo and Rasheed for having one-of-a-kind Islamic monuments! As we walk through history, we discover that they are right! Caring for little details is why Fuwwah earned its place in the Islamic world! Let us acquaint ourselves with a funny story proving their keenness. There were two niches made of camouflaged glass. They were so precious that they put them in the custody of a mosque Imam for 5000 Milim! Which is equal to half a cent!
As we go deep down Fuwwah’s legacy, we find the determination representing itself in the mosque of Nasr-Allah! Badr El-Din Hassan Ibn Nasr-Allah was the only non-mamluk person who wrote his name among Mamluks in a challenging era!
