About Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan is a former Soviet Republic located along the Caspian Sea. It has 40 different people groups, 25 of whom are considered unreached. The largest people group is the North Azerbaijani or the Azeri. The Azeri are predominately Shia Muslims and have historically been more influenced by the Persians rather than Arabic Islam. There is a small group of Azeri Christians.

The third largest people group is the Lezgian who live in the rugged mountains of Azerbaijan in extended family groups known as Tukhum. They were heavily influenced by Arabic Islamic missionaries but have maintained many pagan beliefs that predate the arrival of Muslim missionaries.
