The Jeberti

also spelled Jabarti, Jaberti, Jebarti are a Tigrinya- and Arabic-speaking group mostly found in Eritrea with a wider diaspora community in neighboring countries, primarily in the Arabian Peninsula. There are also small numbers of Jeberti living in Ethiopia. Due to historic persecution,

the Jebertis are attempting to achieve equitable recognition as an ethnic group in both  Eritrea and Ethiopia.

The Jebertis in neighboring countries, facilitated by their shared religion, have been largely assimilated into their respective countries and cultures.

History:
Early in the history of Islam the Prophet Mohammed's companions found sanctuary in the Kingdom of Aksum. When some of the Prophet's companions returned to the Arabian Pennisula some of these refugees remained while some Aksumites converted to Islam. These people were called, Jeberti (the elect of God)[1]. One of their oldest settlements is said to be Negash, in the Tigray Region.

Religion:
Jebertis are all Muslims and the term came to encompass all East Africans and, later, other Africans who have converted to Islam. Although this usage was later dropped as Islam spread across Africa, the original meaning is still evident as any Tigrinya or Amharic speaker who converts to Islam is called "Jeberti".
