  • Who are the Berbers?


    Salaam I am very interested in who the berber people are. What is their origin and do they have a written language? I read once they are semetic people that are related to the Arabs and Jews. Anybody with any information? Thanks. Hajar

    As far as I know, Berber people are leaving mostly mid-south of North Africa. I am also looking for knowing their/my origin. My father uses to say that our ancestors were Roman. Due to the religion, we are closed to the Arabs and consider Jews as Brothers. Some people says Berbers do not have written language, I better think that this now lost but activ people transmitted a roman translation of the language where some letters are available in their original form. Which country are you come from? I will be pleased to hear about the progress you did in your research and wisch you good luck!
    Bye for now

        Hi Hajar & Tahocit,

        I am a Berber, Algerian, and I just wanted to help you in what you looking for.

        First of all, the berbers have two different written languages, which are: the Tifinagh & the Latin Script. If you would like to have those scripts in your PC, just send me an email at akli99@hotmail.com, and I'll send them to you.

        For more information about the origines, that I am certainly sure that their origine is NOT Arabic, Jewish or Roman, but I got some cool Berber sites, that you could check for yourselves, and you can find out what you seeking: Http://www.amazigh.co.uk Http://www.kabyle.com Http://www.tamurt.home.icq.com Http://perso.club-internet.fr/tilit/frame.html Http://www.libyamazigh.org/tamazight_language.htm

        Take care.

        Akli

                        I think the best answer is that the Berbers are wonderful and beautiful people who live, for the most part, in harmony with their Arab and non Arab brethrin.

                        In reality Berbers love Arabs and they as a nation and people have a close link to the very heart of Islam as it was through their hard struggles and great losses of life that they faught for THEIR religion Islam. This being a sign of the pure love they and passion they have for Islam.

                        A true berber would tell you as many have told me that they see themselves as one of the many Arab tribes and their language as a dialect of Arabic and love anything which is connected to Islam and the many beauties contained within Islam.
