Jogi (Muslim traditions) in Bangladesh

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
When you think of Jogis, you usually think of Hindus and India. They are also known as Jogi Faqirs, holy men who are often beggars. Faqirs are often wandering Sufi mystics who teach Islam. Historically, they have been a landless community whose main occupation has been to provide specialized religious services and religious-medical assistance and to seek alms. Jogis also have Muslim communities in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan.

What are their lives like?
Their help in curing diseases and in the removal of evil spirits is sought by both Hindus and Muslims.

What are their beliefs?
Whether they are Hindu or Muslim, many people in South Asia look up to these people who have sacrificed much for spiritual reasons. It is very hard for anyone in this position to be willing to humbly admit that they themselves need a Savior.

What are their needs?
Ironically, the Muslim Jogis are looked up to by some, but disdained by many others. Their spiritual beliefs and practices often straddle Islam and Hinduism, which is frowned upon by many from both religious communities. Their numbers are dwindling as well. Given these circumstances, it is possible that some might be willing to look to new spiritual answers.

Prayer Points
Pray for them to accept the spiritual blessings of Jesus Christ and teach them to others. Pray for a movement to Christ among Jogis in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. Pray for Muslim Jogis to accept that they need a sin-free Savior who can lead them to everlasting life.
