About the story

The novel sheds light on many facts that were missing from the minds of ancient Egyptian history, which were subjected to falsification. It draws attention to many historical facts that the mind did not stop at for a moment. For example, the name Pharaoh mentioned in the Qur’an is not a title or position but a person's name, like the names Haman and Qarun. If his agents were mentioned by their direct, abstract names, then why should it be assumed that Pharaoh was mentioned by his position or title without his name? The novel also sheds light in a focused manner on the faith of the Egyptians as it emphasizes that the Egyptians are not polytheists or idolaters, but are monotheists according to the religion of the Prophet Idris (who was named in the pharaonic history Osiris), and for his glorification, statues were erected to him, and temples that tell his story and the story of his unification to God, the Earth, and the heavens, and the story of his struggle with his brother, Seth, the envoy of evil, and the spreader of corruption. The Egyptians in the novel The Land of God are called the Gyptians, not the Egyptians, and their land is called Egypt. They are the owners of the land of the Nile and the Delta,[3] as well as the land of turquoise Sinai. The novel also mentioned the Jews, according to the time of the novel in 250 BC, and describes them as trying to falsify history by concealing what they did with the Prophet Moses, claiming that they are God's chosen people, and striving to seize the rule of Egypt through a precise plan, the details of which are touched in the novel.[4]
