Bedouin, Saharan Cluster – Profile
  • The Saharan Bedouin cluster includes the Bedouin peoples of North Africa, but not the Bedouin of Arabia, which are in a different cluster. This is one of the 19 clusters in the Arab World Affinity Bloc. This large Bloc includes more than 345 million individuals.
  • Islam's prophet Mohammed was born and raised in the Bedouin tribe of the Quraish. The first converts to Islam came from the Bedouin tribes living in and around Mecca. Islam is embedded and deeply rooted in Bedouin culture.
  • Bedouin society has a strict code of honor which dictates proper behavior for all members, including children. Although modernization has changed the Bedouin lifestyle somewhat, emphasis is placed on teaching children to carry on traditional ways of life, and the advancement of modern technology is not considered important to children's education.
  • Modern societies have made the traditional nomadic Bedouin lifestyle less attractive since it is demanding and often dangerous. Because of that, many tribes have settled in urban areas. Today, the Arabs have one of the highest rates of urbanization in the world.
  • Prayer is an integral part of Bedouin life. As there are no formal mosques in the desert, Bedouins living in the traditional manner pray where they are, facing Mecca and performing the ritual washing, preferably with water. Since water is not always readily available, they 'wash' with sand instead.
  • Bedouins are almost untouched by the gospel. Christian resources are available in the Arabic language, the Bedouin's mother tongue.
