AL SAMIRI THE MAGICIAN: AlSamiri ( ???????) is an Egyptian name meaning The Magician of the Fighting Bull or sAw mry ( V16 – U7-D21-D53-E2). According to Wiki: “Worship of an Apis bull, experienced by ancient Egyptians as holy, has been known since the First Dynasty in Memphis, while worship of the Apis as a proper god, at least according to Manetho’s Aegyptiaca, seems to be a later adoption, purportedly started during the reign of king Kaiechos (possibly Nebra) of the Second Dynasty‚ĶThis animal was chosen because it symbolized the courageous heart, great strength, and fighting spirit of the king. Apis came to being considered a manifestation of the king, as bulls were symbols of strength and fertility, qualities that are closely linked with kingship.”

The story of the goldsmith/magician can be found in Surah 20:87: They (Bani Israel) said, “We did not break our promise to you (Moses) by our will, but we were made to carry burdens from the ornaments of the people [of Pharaoh], so we cast them [into molds], and like Samiri did cast.”88: And he extracted for them [the statue of] a calf which had a lowing sound, and they said, “This is your god and the god of Moses, but he forgot‚Ķ 96: He (the Samiri) said, “I saw what they did not see, so I took a handful [of dust] from the track of the messenger and threw it, and thus did my soul entice me.”

This story is consistent with the Quran 40:36-37 or the story of Moses, Haman and Firawn (meaning from the house of wailing). Haman aka Hemon aka Hemiunu was the wazir and “overseer of all construction projects of the kings”. He served under King Khufu of the 4th Dynasty of the Old Kingdom. He is credited with building the great pyramid of Egypt or the sirhan aly (tall impressive building) mentioned in Quran 40:36.
