Introduction / History

Urdu is the main Pakistani language and is particularly used among the Pakistanis who have lived in Germany for a long time. Urdu is also commonly spoken by Muslims in northern India. Germany probably has the second largest Pakistani community in Europe next to the U.K. Most are now German citizens.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Most Pakistanis living in Germany are professional workers such as doctors, scientists, computer workers, etc. Others are self-employed in businesses such as restaurants. Many Urdu speakers in Germany are single men and are doing different types of work.

Lately many young Pakistanis have come to Germany as science and technology students. There are lower university charges in Germany, and this has attracted many Pakistani students and there are now many Pakistani student societies. There are several prominent Pakistani people living in Germany including professors.

Most live in the Rhein-Main region of Frankfurt and some live in Berlin and other cities.

A lot of Pakistanis speak English and later generations of the German Pakistanis speak German well. Earlier generations have a knowledge of the German language.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Their religion is mainly Sunni Islam but there are also Christians and Hindus among Urdu speakers in Germany.


What Are Their Needs?

These people need to put their hope and identity in the King of kings and Lord of lords.


Prayer Points

Pray for workers to go to the Urdu speaking people in Germany, and for their hearts to be ready to receive their Savior.

Pray for families of believers loving and serving others to grow reproducing churches.

Pray for a chain reaction of Urdu speaking families reaching families that results in thousands of new believers who share their faith with others.

Pray for grace and truth expanding into their entire society as all believers learn to love others.
