Some interesting facts about Yazidi’s

There is no religious duty to pray, one may pray whenever one wishes. They face the sun during prayer, it’s for this reason they’re nicknamed “sun-greeters” & also falsely “sun worshippers”. 

After each prayer they kiss the soil. They religiously rely on the abundance of mother nature’s natural resources & have many rituals dedicated to earth. Yazidi’s believe that when the Earth accepted to have humanity live on her body god made spring as a thank you gift by adorning Earth in flowers.

Traditional Yazidi weddings last seven days. Married Yazidi’s have a bridesmaid & best man called “sister/brother of the afterlife”
