In accordance with the ‘two charities' most commended by the Prophet Muhammad: Free provide of water to the thirsty human and animal and Qur’an teaching, Sabil-kuttab became the most ideal charitable endowment and a uniquely Cairo style of Islamic architecture which increased its numbers to be more than three hundred in the eighteenth century, but unfortunately a lot of them exposed to damage and deterioration by several causes which with time will threat their survival. Between these buildings the sabil-kuttab of Qaytbay, one of the most impressive and stunning sabils in Islamic Cairo. Don’t let its photo of the clean external façades deceives you, the building was restored and renewed in 1999 in a joint venture by the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities and the Spanish agency for international cooperation, but this doesn’t mean the sabil building materials are sound, the author proved that they suffer from severe deterioration symptoms which their causes were deeply explained in this monograph supported by various analyses. This monograph was concluded by making a call to the urgent intervention especially by the decrease of relative humidity degree and desalination.
