Default Re: Traditional practices...

Guys, you should know that there are more than 325 million Arabs living in 25 Arab countries which makes difficult to generalize. In my opinion, there are five major parts or types of Arab cultures and each part has its own characteristics:

1- Gulf states (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, UAE, Yemen, Iraq)

2- Sham Countries (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine)

3- Egypt (I think Egypt has its own characteristics and rich culture)

4- North African Arab Countries (Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia)

5- Other African Arab Countries (Comoros, Sudan, Somalia, Djibouti, Mauritania)
