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.
The Sayyid may have an inadequate understanding of who Jesus truly is, the Son of God, deity.
Christian workers need to build good relationships with the Sayyid people, friendships based upon trust.
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 the Sayyid community will increasingly hunger to truly know and follow Isa (Jesus) as he is referred to in the Koran.
"Having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people." Revelation 14:6
