(i)

The MASHRIQ (مشرق, also MASHREQ, MASHREK) is the region of the Arab world to the east of Egypt
Egypt
. This comprises Lebanon
Lebanon
, Palestine , Jordan
Jordan
, Syria
Syria
and Iraq
Iraq
. Poetically the "place of sunrise", the name is derived from the verb sharaqa (شرق "to shine, illuminate, radiate" and "to rise"), referring to the east, where the sun rises.

As it refers to countries bounded between the Mediterranean Sea and Iran
Iran
, it is the companion term to Maghreb , the western part of North Africa
Africa
. Egypt
Egypt
occupies an ambiguous position: while it has cultural, ethnic and linguistic ties to both the Mashriq
Mashriq
and the Maghreb, it is different from both and is usually seen as being part of neither; however, when it is grouped with one or the other, it is generally considered part of the Mashriq
Mashriq
due to its closer ties to the Levant
Levant
. Egypt
Egypt
and the Levant
Levant
were often ruled as a single unit, as under the New Kingdom of Egypt
Egypt
, the Umayyad , Abbasid and Fatimid Caliphates , the Ayyubid dynasty
Ayyubid dynasty
, the Mamluk Sultanate , and, for a time, under Muhammad Ali of Egypt
Egypt
.

Similarly, Libya may itself be seen as bifurcated between Mashriq
Mashriq
and Maghrib influences, with its eastern part ( Cyrenaica ) seen as linked more to Egypt
Egypt
and the Mashriq.

These geographical terms date from the early Islamic expansion. This region is similar to the Bilad al-Sham
Bilad al-Sham
and Mesopotamia regions combined.

As the Mashriq
Mashriq
is home to several pilgrimage sites , some Muslims view it as a source of religious legitimacy. Mashriqi learning is also esteemed by scholars from the Maghrib.

As of 2014 , the Mashriq
Mashriq
is home to 1.7% of the global population.
