In common with much of the rest of the Arab world, the gradual process of Arabization in Sudan led to the predominance of the Arabic language and aspects of Arab culture.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> The population of Sudan includes various tribes who are ethnically Arab, such as the Shaigya, Ja'alin, Shukria, Rashaida, etc. (according to Johann Ludwig Burckhardt, the Bedouins of the eastern desert of Sudan such as the Ja'alin are almost indistinguishable from the Bedouins of eastern Arabia.<ref name="google16"/>).

Arabized or partially Arabized groups who retain a separate, non-Arab ethnic identity include the Nubians, Copts, Beja.
