Hajam of Pakistan

Viewing 3/24/2017

Hajam of Pakistan

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.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There may be no Christian believers among the Hajam, but pray for the believers that will one day emerge. Pray they are properly taught, and will grow strong in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Pray for the entire people group

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.
