It is very important into the Islamic
culture. It is transmitted orally.
The Muslims believe that cats are evil creatures
when the sunset comes. They are usually in public places, such as market,
old town, etc.
This is the reason why they use amulets and they
practice black magic.
The islam gives special treatment to some animals,
they don't use them for work, these animals are used for pleasure of the pagans
gods. It is believed that these superstitions were invented by Amer, Bin
Lujai. The Arabs thought that these pagan gods or idols, would drive them
to Ala. The Koran says : “We just serve them in order to get closer to Ala”.
There are other important traditions such as the
prophesies: They used to through arrows to choose the right woman, travel,
etc. They believe the predictions of the fortune tellers, astronomers, etc.
The symbolism is also quite important among the arabs; some days, months,
or even animals are considered as bad luck.
