Mussulman Tat of Russia

Introduction / History
The Tats are a nationality living in some of the Caspian regions of Azerbaijan, the southern parts of Daghstan and in Iran. They are a member of the Iranian language group, but speak a language of their own. The northern dialect is based on the Daghestani literary language, and is written in the Russian alphabet. They are usually bilingual in Azerbaijanian. Culturaly and according to their everyday life, the Tats are almost indistinguishable from the Azerbaijanians. However, they have preserved their national identity. The Tats have highly developed carpet-weaving and the manufacture of copper utensils.

The Tats in the Caucasus live mostly along the northeast Caspian coastline of Azerbaijan and the adjoining coastal area of Daghestan. There are a large number in this language family in Iran.

What are their beliefs?
Tats are basically Shiite Moslems, and there are some Jews and Christians.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Christian Tats would live a lifestyle that would proclaim Jesus to their unsaved neighbors and families.
* Pray that as they fashion copper utensils, the Lord would fashion the Tats into vessels for His use.
