Hamza in the mythology of the Druses, was a prophet of the Egyptian god Hakem, whom the Druses call their supreme deity. Hamza is an honored hero. Seven times he has come from heaven to the earth. The sacred books of the Druses call Hamza the guide of the compass, the straight road to the only salvation, the establisher of truth, the Imam of all times, the holy spirit, the final cause of all causes. He was the highest Nezir of the god Hakem. He was so highly esteemed by the latter that he ordered all angels to worship him, which they all did except Sheitun (Satan), and for this reason the latter was damned. The four other prophets, Ismael, Mahommed, Selami, and Ali, are called Hamza's wives.
