An Overview of the Coptic Christians of Egypt

Find the answer if you have been wondering why Ethiopians call Egypt differently

January 7, 2014 | By Lara Iskander and Jimmy Dunn | OnIslam.net

The word Copt is an English word taken from the Arabic word Gibt or Gypt. It literally means Egyptian. The Arabs, after their conquest of Egypt in 641 AD, called the population of Egypt Gypt, from the Greek word Egyptos or Egypt.

The Greek word Egyptos came from the ancient Egyptian words (Hut-Ka-Ptah), one of the names for Memphis, the first capital of Ancient Egypt. In contemporary usage, the term "Coptic" refers to Egyptian Christians. Today, Copts form almost 13% to 15% of Egypts population though they are not ethnically distinct from other Egyptians as they are fully integrated into the body of the modern Egyptian nation.

Monday, Feb 4, 2013 | Bilal Community Center

As most of you know, we have a five(5) members election committee nominated by the existing board. Our duty is to nominate people from our members and present them to the general body for election.

So far we have been doing the work for about a month. However, to make the election process fair and satisfactory, we want the whole members to get involved. We'll put a box today (Feb 4, 2013) labeled Suggestion Box at Bilal Ethiopian Muslims Community Center.

Please drop in the suggestion box your full name and the full name of the person(s) you want to be nominated as soon as possible.

At the same time, we would like to remind you that you need to be a member to vote and to get elected. So we encourage you to pay your membership dues as much as possible.

For any related questions, you can reach us by either of the following phones:
