Ragol Al Mostaheel (Arabic: رجل المستحيل‎) (also transliterated as Rajul al Mustaheel)[1] (The Man of the Impossible) is an action series of books written by Egyptian author Nabil Farouk[2] and published by Modern Arab Association as a part of Rewayat. 160 titles were published from 1984 to 2008.

The novels' main protagonist, Adham Sabry, is a highly trained military commando,[3] employing mixed martial art techniques into his style, and is often involved in espionage missions that would be deemed impossible. He is also in love with his military colleague Mona and is in a constant struggle against his nemesis Sonia Graham, who is also in love with Adham. Adham's portrait and all other's Ragol Al Mostaheel characters were inspired by the renowned Egyptian artist Ismail Diab.

Among the most famous literary figures in the Arabic language, readers of the popular series in the Middle East think of Adham Sabry as the Egyptian counterpart of Ian Fleming's James Bond.

Adham Sabry (Arabic: أدهم صبرى‎, IPA: [ˈʔædhæm sˤɑbɾi]) is the main character in Ragol Al Mostaheel series. His father was one of the first agents of the Egyptian GID, and trained him from an early age in martial arts, foreign languages and firearm handling. He later joined the military, eventually joining the Egyptian commando unit where he attained the rank of Captain. He later joined the Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate, where he was given the Nickname 'The Impossible Man' and Codename (Arabic: ن-1‎, nūn wāħed), due to the occasions where he has performed feats that yielded valuable returns for the directorate in the face of insurmountable odds, an example of which is his first mission in which he managed to steal valuable information from the KGB and then escaped back to Egypt with no help or reinforcements.

Unlike some western models, i.e. Ian Fleming's Bond, Adham Sabry is a model of a man with religious and ethical system combination, where some certain situations being dealt with in a total different manner than usual. Sabry never drinks alcohol, never involves in sexual relationships outside the border of marriage; and committed to prayer times.

Sabry's model represents high nobility principals joined by high professionalism; he never shoots in the back, never beats women or hurts them, normally, he never kills.

He has been teamed up with his long partner Mona Tawfeik whom he later falls in love with but they never marry. He was killed in one of the novels but was again brought back in the next issue. He also lost his memory and was married to his long life rival Sonia Graham, a Mossad agent turned mercenary. The relationship bore a son which has since lost all contact with.
