The Book of the Dead and Facts about Egypt
The Book of the Dead is a collection of religious documents and funerary texts that were used in ancient Egypt, to be a guide to the dead on his journey to the other world, used from the beginning of the modern era of the ancient Egyptian state.It also contains several magical talismans that help protect the dead.The copy of the book was written in the era of the Great Pyramid, and a copy of it is still kept in the British Museum, in which there are calls to the gods, songs, and prayers, and then what the souls of the dead in the other world see of the account and its punishment and reward. They believed in the restoration of the soul that was called Ka or Ba of the dead body, and they were keen to put all the objects of the deceased from food and jewelry and all that he loved in his life with him in his grave where the soul of the dead can eat and drink from them when they return to the body.
How we know these facts about Egypt?
Facts about Egypt These mysteries and magical amulets were engraved on the walls of tombs, pyramids and wooden coffins beside the mummy to be their guide in the other world, and enable the deceased to overcome the obstacles and dangers that will face him during his journey without being exposed. And remember the names of the gods that will be faced, and if forgotten any one of the gods will not be in his favor. Where he will stand before a court of 40 gods.The Book of the Dead was made of papyrus, so every Egyptian of high status would instruct the priests to prepare a book containing his name and the name of his father and his mother and his job in the world and placed beside his mummy.
Here are the most important Facts about Egypt in this chapters of the book of the dead and what it refers to:
1-Protect the dead from devils, evil spirits, snakes and others
2-You know the dead when the path to the Hereafter

4-Allowing him to oscillate between the earthly world and the other world

And the most important part of the book is what the dead advocate for him and is called (recognition of negation),where he denies himself all the iniquity and every indecent or insulting act and tells the God that he is pure of all sins.
I will now tell you a brief description of the Court of the Dead and Facts about Egypt:
The deceased stands in front of a court of 42 judges, headed by Ra-Horakhti. The god Osiris sits on the throne and behind him stands his sisters Isis and Neptis. In front of him are the four sons of Horus standing on the papyrus, which have preserved the dead body in the tomb. Horus comes to wear a beautiful dress to represent Osiris and then enter Paradise. Then Anubis comes accompanying the dead to conduct the weight of his heart. In the process of weighing the heart of the dead: Anubis weighs the heart of the dead and compares it with the right feather (Maat), while the mythical beast (Amamout) stands waiting for the heart to be devoured if the dead man is wrong. The God of writing(Thot) records the balance in his record.
Wow! It is an interesting story, although these ideas are similar to the idea of reward and punishment with some religions although the methods are different, and the end is one and it is death.
