The Rayeen belong to the Sunni sect of Islam. The majority have traditionally been engaged in horticulture and gardening, although this has changed in recent years. The marriage symbol for women is the nose-ring. The Rayeen women, besides performing household chores, assist their menfolk in agricultural operations, cattle-rearing, and in other economic activities. They favor formal education but most of the children drop out after the primary or secondary level, mainly due to economic reasons.

Ministry Obstacles

The Rayeen community may be somewhat uninformed as to why Christians believe Jesus is deity, the Son of God. Pray they will be shown the basis for this belief.


Outreach Ideas

Christian workers can carry the message of Christ to these people using stories from Scripture, and through the use of films and recordings.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may be no followers of Jesus among the Muslim Rayeen at present, but pray for those the Lord will soon lead to himself. Pray they will be joyful always, praying continually, and giving thanks in all circumstances. Pray they will clearly understand the basis for their faith, and rest in the finished work of Christ on the cross. Pray they will learn to live in the power of Christ's Spirit.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Rayeen community will be able to find employment opportunities, and be able to send their children to school.
