Egyptian woman becomes 1st Christian Mesaharaty

An Egyptian woman living in Dahab becomes the first female Christian to work as a Mesaharaty.

Mesaharaty is the person who uses drums to wake up Muslims during the nights of Ramadan to eat the pre-dawn meal and most of the workers are usually men.

However, Katy Zarif broke the stereotype and became the first female Christian to work as a Mesaharaty wandering Dahab streets and waking people up.

According to local media, Zarif explained that currently, Dahab, which is a small town on the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula, has no Mesaharaty and she wanted to make her Muslim friends happy so she became one.
