Qatar is a Peninsula that extends off Saudi Arabia. Qatar Arabs have minimal differences from their Saudi counterparts, primarily they speak a form of Arabic called Arabiya. Otherwise, they live similar lifestyles and practice Islam. Many live semi-nomadic lifestyles; they live in tents made of animal hair, and their primary belongings are their tents and herds. They align with a fundamentalist sect of Islam called Hanbalite (Wahhabite) Muslims which follows the traditional practices of Islam. There are few Christians among them due to the strictness of their religious life.Engagement // What’s Happening Now
