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.
• 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
• 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
strongholds associated with this veneration.
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.
