Oftentimes, Arabs and Muslims are being misconceived as being the same people when in truth this is not the case at all. Muslims are individuals that embrace the religion of Islam, which makes them part of a religious sect (Julita, para.2). Whereas the Arabs, who are individuals that dwell or own their Arabian or Arab regions (Julita, para.2). Thus, they form a specific internationally known nationality (Julita, para.2).
