The original name of the people of North Africa was Imazighen (plural) and Amazigh (single). It means free and noble people. Traveling in Morocco you will meet the Berbers everywhere and you will know their hospitality.
The Berbers people believed in natural religion – Warro, the God of good luck and Wayha, the God of bad luck. Other religions such as Christianity and Judaism arrived much later. By the seventh century most Berbers professed Christianity or polytheism. In the seventh century, after the Arab expansion, this began to change gradually as the majority of the population adopted Islam despite resistance attempts.The Arabs made a strong effort to destroy the religious beliefs and culture of the Berbers, but were unsuccessful because if the fierce Berber pride. They were able to protect their customs in weddings, parties, clothes and even food.
