AlNassiri or (Alnassery) tribe

The Nassiri (AlNasery) was the most powerful tribe of north Baghdad area, the tribe controlled Iraq for over 30 years, through the former 2 president of Iraq “Ahmed Hassan al-Bakr” and “Saddam Hussein” and many more powerful leaders and rolled the region for many many years before that.

‘Ahmed Hassan al-Bakr‘ was the fourth President of Iraq, from 17 July 1968 until 16 July 1979. 

Saddam Hussein’ was the fifth President of Iraq from 16 July 1979 until 9 April 2003.—Saddam played a key role in the 1968 coup that brought the party to power in Iraq.

The noble tribe (alNassiri) was named after the prince Ahmed (Nasser Al-Din or Nassir Aldin), this is according to many old original document dated to 1661 AD.

Prince AlNassir the son of the great Prince Hussein al-Iraqi Governor of al-Basra at that time. which was pointed as prince and ruler of north Baghdad region, and was given the name Bage by the ottoman empire

 Which he was the sons of  Sirs (Zine El Abidine) bin Ali the son of Sir Hussein, the son of Sir Ali bin Abi Talib May Allah honor his face (R.A) .

Ali ibn Abi Talib  عَلِيّ ٱبْن أَبِي طَالِب, (R.A) who was the cousin and son-in-law of the Islamic prophet Muhammad (all prayers and blessings of allah may be upon him (S.A.W)) who ruled as the fourth caliph from 656 to 661AD. the fourth of the Rightly Guided Caliphs in Islam.

Ali ibn Abi Talib (R.A) is the paternal cousin of Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W)  , as they both shared grandfather Abdul-Mutalib ibn Hakim.

Abdul-Mutalib is one of the most important members of the Banu Hashim clan of the Quraysh (Kuraysh) tribe, Quraysh was  the direct descendants of Ismael (the prophet Ismā’īl (A.S)) the son  of our prophet Abrahem (Ibrahim (A.S)).   

Quraysh one of the most important and famous chiefs in Arabia who dominated the Arabian Peninsula before the rise of Islam.

Al Nassiri tribe maintains the same traditions as semi-legendary ancestral, and the powerful influence inherited generation by generation as we were named bayjat by the The Ottoman Empire as sign of honor leadership of north Bagdad area 

Religious affiliation is essential in our believes, and of that the believe that every thing happened for reason as most of life’s events are orchestrated by God for reason. What happened after the fall of Saddam Hussein’s in 2003, as a new realities and challenges emerged in tribe in relation to restructuring the political system and creating new power-sharing agreements between Iran and USA. 

Our tribe severed most after 2003 like most of the Iraqi people as we were forced to leave our houses and land, confiscate most of our belonging, killed, tortured, kidnaped and until today after 14 years still many of us still in the prison. 

Furthermore, before 2003 we were no merchant, as we were not allowed to practice any trading, most of us are solders or government employee this why trading was not allowed.

However, besides faith, family is the second most important element to us.  Family loyalty and obligations take precedence over loyalty and obligations to one’s personal needs. This why we helped each other.

The family structure is tight-knit and deep in our mind is one of the major determining factors of personal status, followed by individual character and achievement. A person’s honor and dignity come from their family.

In generally we are socially-oriented. however we are committed with our tribal affiliation with high degree of liability and discipline which hold us accountable toward our community despite bearing an enormous grievous burden on our shoulders.

Al-Nassiri group already connected by our affinity as we are simply cousins in a sense of family relations.
our fathers lived once in a specific geographical location and physical land. this land defined and sustained us, and provided a point of reference that defined their dialect, diet and identity even when they were away from the land of origin, as we became urbanized, language, historic origins, values, point of view religious, and even politics, still followed their ethnic beliefs at heart.

In our community we share intent, belief, resources, preferences, and needs, risks affecting the identity of the participants and their degree of cohesiveness in community work or community planning, and development in the context of rural and urban development, to progress the social well-being the group.

 We understand organizational the community as hull or individuals lever and how to affect other larger communities’ out side our group. for better economic and business development. Hoping that we be able to contribute to the country’s sustainable recovery and long-term stability. 

The community sets an example among people in general specifically those who shared the same feeling to meet common needs. This is why our relation with many local and international stakeholders, particularly donors and non-governmental organizations continuously improving
, and sometimes It describes an experience so common that we never really take time to explain. It seems so simple, so natural, and so human to be united and exist in the social sector, 

The sense of trust, belonging, safety, and caring for each other gather us strongly together as an individual and give us a collective sense that we can, as part of that community, influence each other’s environments.

That treasured feeling of community comes from shared history and difficult times and experiences. that we shared 
as new realities and challenges emerged in beloved country in relation to restructuring with the new political system that was created after Saddam Hussein. 

This feeling is fundamental to human existence after such suffering., torture and infliction 
“A feeling of fellowship” united our common attitudes, interests and goals”

In our community:
 We addressed one of the most fundamental human needs “the feeling here, I belong”: we give each other this sense of home, the sense of family, this sense of “these are my peers”. This is my tribe, this is where I belong. In this group, I am being accepted for who I really am.
We shared an identity. We give each other the sense of We are together. The sum is bigger than the individual. This shared identity matters, because it takes the group beyond one vision, beyond 1:1 relationships. It turns strangers into trusted peers through a proxy effect: even though I don’t know all, I trust you more because we share the same identity and same fate.
Under the core of care about each other” We develop trust. And trust unlocks collaboration, sharing, support, hope, safety and much more. Even for strangers as long the feeling of part of this community exists. While most organizations in the world optimize their performance towards external goals, communities optimize for trust.
