Mauritania is a country on the Atlantic coast of Africa. Mauritania forms a geographic and cultural bridge between the Berber populations of North Africa and the Sudan peoples of sub-Saharan Africa. Much of Mauritania encompasses the Sahara desert, and, until the drought conditions that affected most of the country in the 1970s, a large proportion of the population was nomadic.
Nouakchott, the nation's capital, was a major refugee center during this challenging time and experienced rapid growth as a result. Today, almost all Mauritanians are Sunni Muslims. After gaining independence in 1960, Mauritania declared itself a Muslim nation in hopes that religion might unite the country's diverse populations. The most prominent people group is the Moors, which constitute more than two-thirds of the country's population.
In Moorish society, their ancestors consisted of two lineages: Arabs, or warriors, and Murabit., who were holy men. As Mauritania has historically been fallow ground for the Church, the time is now for the Bride of Christ to cry out for the Commander of the Lord's army to make true warriors and holy men of Mauritania.
