Summary "It was not a good night when the bloated corpse of the woman came to rest on the shore of Failaka Island. But the will of the shrine of our master Al-Khidr, whose people hope for his miracles and fear his wrath, brought life out of the heart of death, so that the "born child of the station" came. Athbah, who keeps a dangerous secret, knows perfectly well that the story of the shrine is nothing but a ploy from Maria, the Abyssinian who decided to turn her life around to become the master of the shrine! In the hands of the maids of the shrine, the child lived in anticipation of his destiny. A fate intertwined with the fates of the people of Failaka who are immersed in battles of love, betrayal, sorcery and trade." -- Translation of the Arabic synopsis
"لم تكن ليلة هانئة تلك التي رست فيها جّثة المرأة ذات البطن المنفوخ على شاطئ جزيرة فيلكا. لكّن إرادة مقام سيدنا الخضر, الذي يرجو أهلها معجزاته ويخافون غضبه, أخرجت الحياة من قلب الموت ليأتي «وليُد المقام». عذبة التي تكتم سرًا خطيرًا تعلم تمامًا أن قّصة المقام ليست إّلا حيلة من حيل ماريا, الحبشّية التي قررت أن تقلب مسار حياتها لتصير سّيدة المقام! بين أيدي خادمات المقام, عاش الطفل بانتظار قدره. قدٌر تشابك مع أقدار أهل فيلكا الغارقين في معارك حّب وخيانة وشعوذة وتجارة.‪" --‬ back cover
