Najdi Arab in Saudi Arabia

Najdi Arab in Saudi Arabia

The Najdi people live in the central Najd region of Saudi Arabia. They speak four major dialects and all follow Sunni Islam.

Ministry Obstacles

The Najdi live in the birthplace of Islam: Saudi Arabia. It is sometimes called "The Land of the Two Holy Mosques," referring to Mecca and Medina, the two holiest places in Islam. In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the public practice of any religion other than Islam is forbidden. Churches, Bibles and Christian materials are not allowed.

Outreach Ideas

Although Saudi Arabia is off limits to traditional mission work, online evangelism could be an effective tool in reaching the Najdi. Audio and digital Bible resources are available in the Najdi language.
