Hayakom allah ,
Today today I wanna go deep inside the history, remember and tell u litlle bit about Bedouin people.
What's bedouin , how is the life style of a bedouin, how did they survived ....etc and many other types of question may occur in ur mind.
Generally speaking, a Bedouin is an Arab who lives in one of the desert areas of the Middle East and raises camels, sheep, or goats.
They r considered the "most indigenous" of modern Middle Eastern peoples, meaning they lived there before anyone else.
The therm of “beduoin” is today a bit of misnomer , very few bedu r still truly nomadic as circumstances change and the traditional nomadic life of the desert herders has had to adapt .
The bedouin language is a kind of stylized Arabic dialect ( dialect of a specific region) filled with many words that may be difficult for others to really understand certain words.
They r very superstitious persons as for they use amulets,charms,lucky numbers,stones they think may protect which in Islam is is considered a real innovation.
Many bedouin do not fast on the Holy Month of Ramadan and they do not pay much attention to the Eid festivals,or other important days in Islam .Funny but if u ask them, they may not even know the important Islamic festival dates.
Some arab still own 2camels or many more.
Camels evoke ancient nomadic lifestyle, the symbol of community through hardship and endurance, in short Bedouin roots.
Most bedu have modernised nowadays, but still the old traditions have survived with them.
After pitching their distinct black , goat hair tents “beit ash sh’3ar “ , they graze their goats, sheep or camels in an area for several months.When the sparse desert is fodder runs out, is it again the time to move on letting the land to regenerate naturally.
The tents r generally divided into 7aram area ( forbidden area) for woman and another area reserved to the men.The men section serves as a public part of the house, where guests r treated with Arabic coffee, tea, dates or other meals. Here is kept all the gossip, conversations, news..etc. The arabs r known of the hospitality they have.
The bedu family is a close kit unit. The woman do all the domestic work, including fetching water, cooking, weaving and taking care of the childrens.
In the code of honor, women r protected and if any woman will bring "ird" ( loosing honour) to the family is it extremely a serious problem. I think this is applying to every family as well.
The men r traditionally the providers of peace, security , protection in case of wars.
They assume the protection of a traveler or his host and is guaranteed a safe passage through tribal territory.
Maybe u will be amazed to know that some they have mobile phones, satellite tv and the traditional music is it listened at the radio. This is possible bcoz many of the bedu do not move at all in other place, they just stick it and remain in a certain place.
Now i wanna show u some beautiful pictures - bedwu inspiration
