Qashqai, Kashkai of Iran

The Qashqai are a tribal confederation of clans in Iran. The Qashqai were originally nomadic pastoralists but most are now settled, or partially settled. Historically, the Qashqai are believed to have come from Central Asia, and may have been among the Turkic groups that arrived in Iran in the 11th or 12th centuries. They are renowned for their magnificent pile carpets and other woven wool products.

Ministry Obstacles

Iran is not hospitable to Christian workers; access is limited.

Outreach Ideas

Gospel radio and television, evangelistic websites, Gospel recordings and literature can all be useful.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the followers of Jesus among the Quashqai to grow in their love for Christ and for each other. Pray their faith will be nourished by the Spirit of Christ.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the good news about Jesus to reach the ears of the Qashqai community in an understandable way, in their mother tongue.
