The Sindhi are considered to be one of India and Pakistan's oldest people groups. They believe their earliest ancestors came from the region where the Indus River flows into the Arabian Sea. They are named after the Indus River, which in Arabic is called the Sindhu River. They come from the Sindh region, which is presently part of Pakistan. With the partition of Pakistan from India in 1947, large number of Sindhi families moved to other parts of the world where the British once held power including Oman.
Unlike the Hindu Sindhis who are often prosperous businessmen around the world, their Muslim counterparts often hold low-level or manual jobs. Muslim Sindhi people do not allow their people to marry outside their community.
They are Sunni Muslims who have also been influenced by Sufism. There are Sufi shrines in Sindhi communities.
The Sindhis in Oman need open hearts to hear God's answers to their spiritual problems.
Pray that Sindhi people in Oman will be liberated by God's Holy Spirit from the many ties that bind them to lives devoid of Christ's blessings. Pray that Sindhi people will see past their respective traditional worship to the futility of it all and experience a growing desire to know the truth of God's Word. Pray for the Lord to multiply the reception and influence of His Word among Sindhi people, leading them to love Him with their whole being. Pray for the Holy Spirit to anoint Sindhi families, especially the children and youth, and to raise up a new generation of fruitful, multiplying witnesses of Christ's mercy and love.
