Sayyid in Pakistan

Unreached of the Day  8/18/2021

Sayyid in Pakistan

pronounced: SAH-yeed

The Sayyid occupy the highest of social class among Muslims. They are traditionally the priests and religious teachers of the Muslim communities. More recently they can be found in a host of government service, teaching and business occupations. They marry mainly among their own clans. The Sayyid can be found in both major sect divisions of the Shia and the Sunni.

Ministry Obstacles

Because of their position as religious teachers and priests they are considered 100% Muslim in each of the countries where their live. Their high status within Muslim communities motivates them to never want to stray from the religious system called Islam.

Outreach Ideas

Because of the sheer religious and political weight that the Sayyid carry in their respective communities, a transformed Sayyid leader for Christ could have influence like that of "Paul" in his day. Whole districts could be converted to be followers of Jesus (whom Muslims call Isa al-Masih) if Sayyid leaders come to know and trust the Savior.

Scripture Focus

That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning.” Joel 2:12

Scripture Prayer

Pray that this people group turns to the Lord and repents of their sins.

Prayer Focus

Because of their position as religious teachers and priests they are considered 100% Muslim in each of the countries where their live. * Pray for dreams and visions among these people. * Pray for the Lord to bring many Pakistani Sayyids to Himself, who will in turn be a blessing for all of Pakistan. * Pray that soon there will be Sayyids in Pakistan who will lead others to follow the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
