第十四天 中東的叙利亞──Day 14 The Syrian people of the Middle East

For English version, please refer to the latter part of this page

敘利亞人,來自敘利亞,有多個種族。阿拉伯人占大多數,庫爾德人是第二大敘利亞民族群體。話雖如此,還有許多其他敘利亞的少數民族群體,如亞述人、亞美尼亞人和土庫曼人。由於戰爭,許多敘利亞人被迫逃離祖國,從澳大利亞到巴西,龐大的敘利亞僑民群體遍布全球。

在宗教方面,根據《大英百科全書》,大多數敘利亞人是穆斯林。在穆斯林中,四分之三是遜尼派穆斯林。德魯茲教是另一種流行的敘利亞宗教,根據《大英百科全書》,這個宗教以“一套折衷的教義體系”而聞名。只有十分之一的敘利亞人自稱為基督徒,希腊東正教是該國最大的基督教教派。敘利亞位於中東,濱臨地中海,與黎巴嫩、土耳其、伊拉克、約旦和以色列接壤。大馬士革是其首都,是世界上最古老的城市之一。被稱為“茉莉之城”,是敘利亞的教育和文化中心。該國的氣候從5月到10月是干旱的,海岸附近地區冬季溫和。在內陸地區,冬季可能會下雪。

敘利亞人擁有多元豐富的文化並不奇怪。在歷史上,他們受到阿拉伯、美索不達米亞、希腊和羅馬文化的影響。然而,《大英百科全書》說,敘利亞人的主導文化特點仍然是阿拉伯人。從語言上來說,大多數敘利亞人說阿拉伯語,盡管庫爾德語、亞美尼亞語和土耳其語在地區範圍內也有使用。

根據《大英百科全書》,包辦婚姻在過去是常見的,現在則比較少見,但父母在決定子女的婚姻方面仍然起著至關重要的影響。

社交生活是敘利亞文化的核心,一起坐在地板上享用咖啡是常見的,根據約書亞項目(Joshua Project),餐點通常由小麥面包和煮熟的肉組成。

由於敘利亞的基礎設施不可靠,使到宣教工作充滿挑戰。自2011年以來,敘利亞一直卷入內戰,許多敘利亞人在戰爭中失去了家園和家人。半島電視台說,當2023年的地震摧毀了敘利亞西北部的部分地區時,受影響的居民“正在努力地應對他們新的、日益惡化的現狀。”

環球電台的阿拉伯語團隊,正在幫助敘利亞人在和平之君中尋找避難所,這是真正自由的唯一來源。

禱告

親愛的天父,我將敘利亞人民交托在你的手中。主啊,求你藉著《為敘利亞帶來希望》節目,直接對破碎的心靈說話。當聽眾每天走在敘利亞被戰亂毀壞的創傷中時,願他們找到和平之君。

Day 14 The Syrian people of the Middle East

Syrians, the people originating from Syria, are ethnically diverse. Arabs make up the majority, with the Kurdish people being the second-largest Syrian ethnic group. That said, there are many other Syrian minority groups such as Assyrians, Armenians and Turkmen. Many Syrians have been forced to flee their homeland due to war, and a massive Syrian diaspora stretches across
the globe, from Australia to Brazil.

When it comes to religion, most Syrians are Muslim, according to Britannica. And of the Muslim population, three-fourths are Sunni Muslims. Druze is another popular Syrian religion, known for “an eclectic system of doctrines,” says Britannica. Only one-tenth of Syrians identify as Christian, with Greek Orthodox being the largest Christian denomination in the country.

Syria is in the Middle East, situated along the Mediterranean Sea and bordering Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Jordan and Israel. The capital of Damascus is one of the oldest cities in the world. Known as the “City of Jasmine,” it’s the center of education and culture. The nation’s climate is arid from May to October, with mild winters near the coast. Farther inland, snow can occur in winter.

It’s no surprise that Syrians have a rich culture. Throughout history, they’ve been influenced by Arabian, Mesopotamian, Greek and Roman cultures. Still, the dominant character of the Syrian people remains Arab, Britannica says. Linguistically, most Syrians speak Arabic, although Kurdish, Armenian and Turkish languages are spoken regionally.

In years past, arranged marriages were common, says Britannica. They’re becoming less frequent, but parents still play a crucial role in determining who their children marry.

Social life is at the heart of Syrian culture, and sitting on the floor together to enjoy coffee is common, according to Joshua Project. Meals typically consist of wheat bread and boiled meats.

Ministry in Syria is challenging due to the unreliable infrastructure. Since 2011, the nation has been embroiled in a civil war, and many Syrians have lost homes and family members in the war. When the 2023 earthquakes devastated parts of northwest Syria, it left affected residents “grappling with their new and worsening reality,” says Al Jazeera.

TWR’s Arabic team is helping Syrians find refuge in the Prince of Peace, the only source of true freedom.

PRAYER

Dear Father, I lift the people of Syria to you today. Lord, speak straight into broken hearts through the Hope for Syria program. As listeners walk the trauma of daily life in war-torn Syria, may they find the Prince of Peace.
