Sindhi Sama in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Sindhi Samma are a Sindhi tribe who live in Sindh in Pakistan. They speak the Sindhi language and are Muslims.

The Samma have been in Sindh for a long time. They are descendants from the Samma Dynasty that ruled in Sindh from the fourteenth century to the first part of the sixteenth century. The capital was at Thatta.

Every year many do pilgrimages to Thatta to respect the dead people buried there who they regard as saints. Thatta was regarded as being very important for religion and for trading too. There are buildings that remain today from the days of the Samma Dynasty.

Prayer Points
* Pray that as the Sindhi Samma read the Koran that they will want to know more about Jesus Christ, read the Bible and give their lives to Him.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
