Do’s
1. Choosing a name for a boy gender baby is unique in the Iraq’s lecture. If a
child is born while the grandfather of the father’s side is dead, the child will be
named after him. This is a way of the father to show respect to his family.
Most of the names are Arabic names that contained Arabic letters and cannot
be translated to any other language, especially in muslium’s cult
2. The amount of respect given to an older person determine the persons
personality. While an older person enters a room, the younger people have to
stand up to welcome them in by shaking hands.
3. It is not a tradition, but most men do not greet in physically, only dome shake
hands. While all women greet each other by giving four kiss cheek to cheek, if
not done so, that means they are not showing respect.
4. Families visit other families in many occasions to present their relatives
duties. When a family moves in to a different house, the whole family
members are responsible to visit them with a home good gift. When a family
member do any surgery, the family members are responsible to visit them as
well with a dessert dish.
5. Marrying is 50/50 in Iraq. It is still a tradition in some families where they
arrange a marriage for their children. Some families are changing their
mindset while letting their children to choose their spouse.
Donts
1. The marriage has to be between two opposite genders, gays and lesbians are
not accepted at all.
2. While people greet each other. The opposite gender are not supposed to
greet in physically. They have to greet in verbally only. If they are both are
married, there should not be a long-term conversation between the opposite
gender in public.
3. In family gatherings, the family invited should not bring any meal or desert
along with them. The family of the gathering will take this as disrespect from
the family. If a family invites someone over, the more meals they prepare
shows the amount of respect to them.
4. Muslium Iraqi people do not eat meat unless it is “Halal.” Halal meat means
slaughtering animals or poultry, dhabiha, involves killing through a cut to the
jugular vein, carotid artery and windpipe.
5. Having sexual relationship is not allowed. A girl must be virgion untill she gets
married and she is only allowed to have sex relation with her husband untill
she dies no matter what. Back in about 30 years or so, if a girl was not a
virgin, her family members have the right to kill her. For men, they are not
allowed as well but is not that strict.
