Description: The Dakhani are descendants of intermarriages between Muslim converts from Hindu castes in the Deccan plateau, and foreign Muslim immigrants from the Middle East, Central Asia and East Africa. The Dakhani language is a mixture of Hindi, Marathi, Persian, and Arabic.

Prayer Points:
• The Bible has yet to be completely translated in the Dakhani language. Pray that a strong team of Dakhani believers would soon be assembled to streamline this essential discipleship resource.
• Praise God for the emerging partnership of both indigenous and expatriate organizations which are focused on the Dakhani. Pray for strategic wisdom and Spirit-filled cooperative planning and joint efforts.
• The city of Hyderabad is the religious center for the Dakhani. Virtually every street in the Muslim sections has its own Muslim saint whose grave is located there and venerated by the local Muslims. Pray for delieverance from spiritual strongholds associated with this veneration.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, bless the work of those committed to reaching the Dakhani with your love and grace. Grant them favor, open doors and willing hearts to receive your word and salvation.
Each year 24,000 Dakhani Muslims die without Christ.
