Sayyid of India

Viewing 9/01/2017

Sayyid of India

The Sayyid are one of the larger segments of Muslims in India. The word literally means "master"; the closest English equivalent would be "sir" or "lord". Some Muslims use the term sayyid for the descendants of Abu Talib, uncle of Muhammad. Sayyid ancestors migrated to India from different parts of Iran.

Ministry Obstacles

The Sayyid may have an inadequate understanding of who Jesus truly is, the Son of God, deity.

Outreach Ideas

Christian workers need to build good relationships with the Sayyid people, friendships based upon trust.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray the followers of Christ that will soon emerge from the Sayyid community will become well established in the faith, fully trusting in Christ for their eternal life and for power to live the present life. Pray they will live holy lives.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Sayyid community will increasingly hunger to truly know and follow Isa (Jesus) as he is referred to in the Koran.
