Aynallu people live in central Iran.
Lives of Aynallu people are completely absorbed and dictated by their Islamic religion. They live in tribal groups and are accountable to tribal heads.
Aynallu people in Iran are completely Muslim in their beliefs. They believe that Allah spoke through his prophet, Mohammed, and taught mankind how to live a righteous life through the Koran and the Hadith. To live a righteous life, they must utter the Shahada (a statement of faith), pray five times each day facing Mecca, fast from sunup to sundown during the month of Ramadan, give alms to the poor, and make a pilgrimage to Mecca. Muslims are prohibited from drinking alcohol, eating pork, gambling, stealing, slandering, and making idols.
Although the entire Bible, audio recordings, and the JESUS Film exist in the Azerbaijani language common among Aynallu people in Iran, they remain unreached and unable to benefit from these resources. Who will tell them? Although the true church of Jesus Christ is growing rapidly in Iran, Aynallu people are not yet part of that growth.
