CULTURAL INSIGHT

BEGINNER #4 - DO YOU HAVE A PEN?

Middle Eastern people have always been known for their kindness and generosity. Due to the nomadic nature and scarce resources of Bedouin Arabs in the Arab peninsula and North Africa, generosity and hospitality were of high regard. When Islam came, its teachings highly encouraged and cherished generosity. So even though Arabs are no longer nomadic, the ideal of generosity is still present. If you are invited to someone's home, you can expect to be offered something to eat or drink. Guests usually refuse the offer once for politeness, but accept afterwards. Even if you show up unexpectedly, you will most likely be offered something to eat or drink. Again, it is polite to refuse the offer because you don't want the host to go through the effort. Depending on the effort required to prepare the treat, it is polite to refuse several times (2 to 5 times) until the host either insists or accepts your refusal.
