Gulf-spoken Arab in Egypt

Gulf-spoken Arab in Egypt

The Arab culture was developed by tribes of nomads and villagers who lived in the Arabian Desert. It was from there that Arab migrations throughout the Middle East and northern Africa began, leading to the expansion of the Arab world. Today, the region is home to a number of different types of Arabs. The Gulf Arabs (also known as the Saudi Arabs) live primarily along the southern edges of the Arabian Desert, though some have migrated to other Arabic-speaking countries like Egypt. They speak Arabiya or, as it is more commonly known, Gulf Arabic.

Gulf Arabs in Egypt are usually from Saudi Arabia, a strict Islamic state. Alcohol and loose sexual behavior are strictly forbidden in Saudi Arabia, so they go to places like Egypt to indulge in these self-destructive activities.

Ministry Obstacles

As the prodigy of the founders of Islam, Gulf Arabs have a strong vested interest in remaining faithful to the Islamic political/religious system. They are among the most resistant people groups in the world. Gulf Arabs are often part of the most conservative forms of Islam like Wahhabism.

Outreach Ideas

Radio and satellite TV efforts like SAT-7 provide all Arabic speakers with a gospel message in the privacy of their own homes. Gulf Arabs who respond can be sent Bibles and the JESUS Film.

Scripture Focus

"But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,"  1 Peter 3:15

Scripture Prayer

Pray for today’s people group to learn to worship Christ as Lord and King.

Prayer Focus

For the Gulf Arab wherever they live, a profession of faith in Jesus may cost a person his family, his honor, his job or even his life. Evangelization of this people group will be challenging due to the nature of their lifestyle and belief system. Prayer is the key to reaching them with the gospel. Ask God to raise up faithful prayer teams who will begin breaking up the soil through worship and intercession. Ask the Holy Spirit to call people who are willing to go and share the love of Christ with the Gulf Arabs in Egypt. Pray that strong local churches would be raised up among the Gulf Arabs in Egypt.
