Kamboh (Muslim traditions) in Pakistan

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
Muslim Kambohs have a tradition they descended from the ancient Kai dynasty of Persia. Muhammad Umar writes: "The (Muslim) Kamboh distinguished themselves by their courage, generosity and high spirits. They were famous for their excellent manners and were particularly gifted with wisdom and nobility.....perhaps with a view to maintaining the purity of their descent, or because of pride of nobility, they confined their matrimonial relationships within their own groups and did not establish marriage connections with other Muslim groups including even the Saiyids and the Mughals." Kambojs are known as adventurous and enterprising people.

Ministry Obstacles
Spiritual opposition to the Gospel is intense in Pakistan.

Outreach Ideas
Pray for an insatiable hunger in the hearts of the Kamboh for knowledge of the true God.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There may not be a single follower of Jesus among the Kamboh today, in either Pakistan or India. Please pray the Lord will begin to stir their hearts to seek a Savior for their sin.

Pray for the entire people group
Please pray the Kamboh community will be set free from a religion that offers no promise of eternal life, nor does it offer power for living this life victoriously.
