Hajam in Pakistan

pronounced: hah-ZHAM

The Hajam have been a service community for centuries, and many perform hair-cutting (hajamat). Some of the Hajam have taken to varied urban occupations like selling betel leaf and jobs at hotels. The Muslim code of law is followed in matters of property. The Urdu language and Arabic script are used in the religious sphere.

Ministry Obstacles

A misunderstanding of the full nature of Christ must be corrected.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for workers to carry the Gospel to the Hajam, and for friendships to be developed. Good relationships are important.

Scripture Focus

Then the Lord reached out His hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.” Jer 1:9-10

Scripture Prayer

Pray for Christ’s ambassadors to be careful to speak only what God tells them to say when they go to the nations.

Prayer Focus

There may be no Christian believers among the Hajam, but pray for the believers that will soon come to faith. Pray they are properly taught, and will grow strong in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Pray for the Hajam community of South Asia, that they will have good schools available for their children, adequate health care, and good employment opportunities.
