Mulukhiyya (Jew’s mallow), a favourite food among Egyptians, was banned because Muawiya, the founder of the Umayya caliphate, who had caused the downfall of the Prophet’s son-in-law, loved it. Games were forbidden. Beer and wine were poured into the Nile, along with honey. For the first decade of Hakim’s rule minorities enjoyed privileges.

Europe, which had been drained of its bullion towards the Muslim world to pay for its spices, now saw the flow reversed, with bullion drained from Egypt to pay for furs from the Baltic region, mamluks from the Caucasus to replace those who had been killed by the plague, and weapons.
