by Farah Andil

When you say the word ‘Eid’, the first things that pop into people’s minds – after Kahk of course – are the beach, parties and basically everything that we weren’t allowed to do during Ramadan. For people who prefer (or are forced) to stay in Cairo during Eid, you too can enjoy your long awaited […]

It’s Time to Kill The “Mosalsalat Do not Represent Egyptian Society” Argument

It’s Time to Kill The “Mosalsalat Do not Represent Egyptian Society” Argument

Idealists have been spamming my timeline recently with long Facebook posts and essay – like rants surrounding how this year’s Ramadan mosalsalat are not aligned nor reflective of Egyptian society’s values and traditions.   One mosalsal that is being particularly mentioned a lot in these kinds of rant-y posts is ‘La Totfe2 El Shams’. This is […]

  We can’t take it anymore, we just can’t!  If you’re one of the millions following “La Totfe2 El Shams,” the past few days must have pretty rough on you, especially after Ahmed Malek’s character contemplated suicide. No one knows if he actually died yet, and we just can’t keep living in suspense.   Moving to […]

Guess Who Topped Google’s List of Top Trending TV Shows in Ramadan 2017

Ramadan is the real life version of the Arab world’s Hunger Games, and not just beacuse we are literally fasting, but also because its the time for a blood – bath feud between for TV shows, TV series and advertisements.   And, in case the situation was not already saturated with competition, Google has just […]

‘Halawet El Donya’ Has 40% of the Population’s Eye Candy and We’re Boycotting It in Ramadan

‘Halawet El Donya’ Has 40% of the Population’s Eye Candy and We’re Boycotting It in Ramadan

by Karine El-Tantawy

  Why would anyone do such a thing? We are quite aware of the effect of eye candy but it’s Ramadan for God’s sake. Why would anyone test our limits and cast four of the Arab world’s finest male specimens in one single mosalsal?   It’s only day three and our senses are already on […]

An Epic List of Ramadan 2017 Mosalsalat Came Out And Mostafa Shaaban Already Won

OH MY GOD! Ramadan is less than two months away and we just can’t. We’re sorry if you feel like we’re exaggerating, but Ramadan’s mosalsalat (series) always have a huge impact on our lives. They give us the kind of drama that make people cry on social media, aka El-Ostooral; they give us catchphrases that we […]

26 Life Lessons We Learned from Ramadan TV in 2016

26 Life Lessons We Learned from Ramadan TV in 2016

I can honestly say I failed my family, friends and boss with all the hours I spent cemented in front of my TV this month. I’m a shameless mosalsalat addict and I think I definitely need a Ramadan rehab. Come to think of it, I spent around 120 hours watching drama and suspense.   What have […]

13 Things That Happen in Mosalsalat That Would Be Super Weird in Real Life

13 Things That Happen in Mosalsalat That Would Be Super Weird in Real Life

It’s been a little bit over a week in Ramadan and it’s quite impossible to ignore TV shows. They are everywhere you go: restaurants, cafes, malls, work, Facebook and your grandma’s bedroom. Our brains are absorbing so much nonsense via those screens and it has become too difficult to tell real life from fiction. From waking up […]
