When the French vessel La Truite docked in Alexandria on a sunny day in March 1826, its master was unaware of the changes that were afoot in Egypt and, more importantly, of the minor, yet instrumental part he would have in them. At the end of his brief stay in the country, its Rumelian-born ruler, Muhammad ' Alî, asked him to take some passengers back to France. Among them was a young man, who would go on to play a crucial role in the intellectual life of his native country. His name was Rifâ'a Râfi' al-Tahtâwî.
