Jogi (Muslim traditions) in Bangladesh

Profile Text

Summary
When you think of Jogis, you usually think of Hindus and India. However, they also have Muslim communities in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. 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. Their help in curing diseases and in the removal of evil spirits is sought by both Hindus and Muslims.

Ministry Obstacles
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.

Outreach Ideas
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.

Pray for the entire people group
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.

Scripture Focus
Behold, the Lord God comes with might, and his arm rules for him; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.
