Mawalud of India
This community is often called Dhakkani because they migrated from the Deccan plateau. Largely landless, the Dhakkani are engaged in various occupations. They intermarry with other Muslim communities and share water sources, burial grounds and religious shrines with them. They belong to the Sunni sect of Islam and follow the Hanafi school.
These people surely have a limited view of who Isa (Jesus) of the Koran truly is in His fullness.
Christians need to build bridges of friendship and trust with the Mawalud community.
There may be no followers of Christ among the Mawalud community today, but pray the Lord will provide for those who will soon come to himself. Pray he will provide pastors and teachers for them, to teach them properly and model Christ-like behavior.
Pray the Mawalud community will be able to care for their families adequately, and will find employment opportunities. Pray their children will be prepared for the 21st century.
"All nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name." Psalm 86:9
