How do Egyptians feel about their Arabization by Muslim conquerors in the 7th century?

Egyptians and other North African nations have had their own culture and civilization since the beginning of recorded history. Especially Egypt, which was superpower at one point (Babylonians), until Islam came along and stripped Egypt of its history and culture, replacing them with Islam and making its inhabitants adopt the Arabic language and Islamic religion. Looking back at history, are you glad for this change? Do you think Egypt’s position in the world today would have been better/worse had this change not happened?

i am glad Islam came to Egypt. edit: remember prophet Muhammad was an Arab himself but he fought against the Arabs. so Islam is not the religion of Arabs, but for everyone with different race and backgrounds.

Yes i am glad we had Islam and Arab conquest in Egypt, it had added to our culture and benefited it us in all means.

I'm glad that we were invaded by Muslims. But I'm not glad that we were invaded by Arabs.

I am happy Islam was introduced into Egypt, but I don't like the Arabization of our culture.
