The Argon (or Arghun) derive their name from the Persian term arghwani, meaning beautiful red color. Women enjoy high status, being entitled to inheritance. A particular kind of skirt is the sign of a married girl. After a death, the dead body is given a bath, a funerary prayer is performed, and the dead body is laid to rest. A ritual (jib hoo) is performed on the fortieth day after a death when verses from the Quran are recited. They belong to the Hanafi school of Islam.
Pakistan is inhospitable to any kind of Christian witness directed toward Muslims, and spiritual opposition is strong.
Much prayer is needed to soften the hearts of Pakistani Muslim towards the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pray for the Followers of Christ
It is quite unlikely there are any followers of Jesus today among the Arghun community, in either Pakistan or India. Pray for workers and pray for softened hearts.
Pray for the Entire People Group
Please pray the Arghun communities of Pakistan and India will be given a growing interest in Jesus the Messiah, or Isa, as he is known in the Koran. Pray they will captivated by Jesus and that he will draw these people to himself.
