About

Marhaban! To our magazine which is designed to specifically provide our readers a ‘mixed, hip and from time to an other tough meeting” with the ancient and contemporary “Arab world and ditto culture” – as well as its meeting with other cultures, mainly from a female perspective.

The goal is to provide our readers and visitors (men and women, arabs and interested non-arabs) a different and inspiring overview of the “Arab life and culture” and its challenges in changing and interacting times.

Also we will be here to share and do our best to empower people in the arabic world and promote human rights, freedom and prosperity!

It must be emphasized that there is no “one” Arab culture or society. The Arab world is full of rich and diverse communities, groups and cultures. Differences exist not only among countries, but within countries as well.

* The Arab world stretches from Morocco across Northern Africa to the Persian Gulf.
* The Arab world is more or less equal to the area known as the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Although this excludes Somalia, Djibouti, and the Comoros Islands which are part of the Arab world.
* The Arab world can also be defined as those countries where Arabic is the dominant language.

Note: Arab countries are religiously and ethnically diverse with Islam being the dominant religion in most countries.

22 Arab countries/areas: Algeria, Bahrain, the Comoros Islands, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Mauritania, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

Motto:
“My mission is the Humanity, my nation is the Earth and my religion is the Peace!”

  2. Arabelle. I am REALLY looking forward to your posts to come. I’m greatly interested in learning so much more relative to the core of your writing. Make it a great day!

  3. Morocco and North African in general are not Arab. They do include a minority of Arabs but they are Amazigh (Berber) countries. Go and read some history of North Africa.

    • You seem to have big problems! Feel free to post own info or write a wiki article! Try to analyse what I am reading!
      And by the way why are you named in arabic? I don’t mind but just curious!
      Nb: I will reject your comments if you don’t manage to keep a civilized tone!
