Arab, Saudi – Najdi in Qatar

The Arab Najdi are often referred to as Bedouin Arabs. Bedouin Arabs are nomadic shepherds native to the Arabian Desert. There are two classes of Bedouin Arabs: the “true” Bedouin retain their nomadic culture and the “fellahin” which are settled on the edge of the desert and farm. The Bedouins travel through the desert and have no permanent homes. Their main possessions are their tents and animals. They are primarily Sunni Muslims and approximately 45,000 live in Qatar.

Engagement // What’s Happening Now

Jumaa Prayer Fellowship is a prayer initiative that brings together over 60,000 people in prayer for the souls of Muslims. Prayer is essential to bring the gospel to Muslims; consider dedicating time to intercede for Muslims.

Readers, Writers, and Speakers

Bedouin Arabs speak Badawi, which is commonly called Bedouin Arabic. There is no Bible translated in their language. Pray for language resources and a Bible translation.

Partnership // Move Beyond
  • Pray for wisdom as workers try to reach Bedouin Arabs.
  • Pray the Holy Spirit opens their hearts to receive the gospel.
  • Pray for spiritual awakening in their hearts as they hear the gospel.

“This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you” (Ephesians 5:14, NIV).
