Introduction / History
According to one account, the word Shaikh is a general term of courtesy equivalent to the English term of sir. According to another account, the name is applied to people of pure Arab descent; but it has also been adopted by converts from Hindu communities.

Where are they located?
Shaikhs have large communities in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. A small number have migrated to other parts of the world such as New Zealand.

What are their lives like?
Among South Asian Muslims, Shaikhs have great prestige as being knowledgeable about Islam. They are likely to be the imams and other mosque leaders.

What are their beliefs?
The majority belong to the Sunni sect of Islam.

What are their needs?
Shaikhs need spiritual discernment and humility to see that Jesus offers answers to life's many problems.

Prayer Points
* Pray for spiritual hunger among the Shaikhs in New Zealand.
* Pray that the Lord will send dreams and visions to the Shaikhs of New Zealand that will give them the willingness to teach Christ at the mosques.
* Pray that Shaikhs will soon disciple thousands of Muslims in the life-transforming ways of Jesus Christ.
