Cairo delights at sweet candies as Muslim festival nears

Decorated sugar dolls, horse-shaped candies and nut-filled treats are on display in shops lining the busy street near Islamic Cairo, a historic district filled with mosques, tombs and caravanserais.

Hawzah News Agency - (Cairo - Egypt) - The sweet smell of candies wafts through downtown Cairo's historic Bab al-Bahr street as the Muslim Prophet Mohammed's birthday (PBUH) , known as "Al Mawlid Al Nabawi", draws near.

Decorated sugar dolls, horse-shaped candies and nut-filled treats are on display in shops lining the busy street near Islamic Cairo, a historic district filled with mosques, tombs and caravanserais.

"We love to share this happy mood," said one stall-holder who was adorning a candy doll with glitter and coloured paper, drawing intense interest from a group of playful children.

"We come to Bab al-Bahr during this time every year to decorate candies."

Sunni Muslims in many parts of the world celebrate Prophet Mohammed's birthday (PBUH) on the 12th day of the third month of the Islamic calendar, which this year falls on Saturday, November 9.
