Alma El Chaab - ???? ?????


Historical overview in English:

It is stated that from 450 years, people began to come in crowds and groups and encamped on its hills, for its land, climate, radiance and beautiful spot fascinated them. Since this time, they began to build houses. However, and in order to overcome poverty, destitution and fear, three constructed walls composed each house and the fourth one was common with its neighboring house. Each resident made sure not to build a high door so the equestrian could not enter while riding his horse. As a result, the houses took a circular shape. These houses were considered a meeting and conversation rooms and were the proof of the affection and cooperation among them.

This is how the journey of our ancestors began, living in the holy land of Aalma el Shaab carrying the mission of Jesus Christ. Since then, they became immersed in its land and embodied with its surroundings. Furthermore, they started transforming the land from simple undulations to vineyards and productive agricultural lands. This and the divine Providence also blessed them with intelligence, which enabled them to interact and fuse with their surroundings regardless of any status. We cannot also forget their constant search for knowledge, education and desire to meet any progress.

Time passed by and they overcame all kinds of problems and endurances and protected their town from all evils. Alma al Shaab was a pioneer in all fields until the 20th century when the two world wars occurred. The first was symbol of severance, hunger, poverty, humiliation and compulsory military service and was disastrous to the people, whereas the second one carried with her destruction, catastrophes and fear. Nevertheless and despite all that, Aalma el Shaab remained a living witness of Jesus-Christ.

With Lebanon's independence in sight, it became clear how much Aalma el Shaab was and still patriotic when we witnessed the eagerness of its youth into joining the army and various military fields; there were officers, noncommissioned officer and courageous individuals who were always the pride of the Lebanese Military Institution.

As on the scientific level, its youth sought education in different fields despite severe living conditions. Some of them even followed studies in local and international universities. Aalma el Shaab was thus proud to engender doctors, architects, lawyers, teachers, executives and highly competent persons. As an example, MD Ibrahim Zouaarob was one of the first alumni ever to be graduated from the American University (AUB) at the beginning of the 19th century.

If we ever mention the business field, we see a widespread of its population in Lebanon, the gulf countries and the world in search of work. This raised their material and immaterial status and contributed into architectural development of the village. We cannot forget the development in the agricultural field, where we witnessed an increase in the productive lands and those of olives and fructuous plantations, contributing into a massive oil production.

We briefly tried to describe the early years of Alma al Shaab. However, there is to be said that the bond between Alma al Shaab and its citizens in not only one of affiliation but of spiritual and loving bond as the one of a loving and proud mother, always asking them to be close and united as to cherish its intimacy. They know as well that it prospers by its integration to them and always asks for their visit so that they prosper by their integration to it.

Haha, that was my cousin's wedding I believe... Jamil Toubia with Loulou Kassis. The bride is also related to me, she would be the daughter of my mother's cousin.
