Arabic is the native language of majorities from Mauritania to Oman, and from Iraq to the Sudan. As the language of the Qur'an and as a ''lingua franca'', it is studied widely in the non-Arabic-speaking Muslim world as well. Its spoken form is divided into a number of varieties (varieties of Arabic), some not mutually comprehensible, united by a single written form. The principal exception to this almost universal use of Arabic script is the Maltese language, genetically a descendant of the extinct Sicilian Arabic dialect. The Maltese alphabet is based on the Latin script with the addition of some letters with diacritic marks and digraphs (Digraph (orthography)). Maltese is the only Semitic official language within the European Union.

Nevertheless, many international organizations include Sudan and South Sudan as part of Sub-Saharan Africa. Although a long-standing member of the Arab League, Sudan has substantial non-Arab populations in the west (Darfur, Masalit, Zaghawa), north (Nubian (Nubian people)) and south (Kordofan, Nuba).
