Introduction / History

The Luwathiya Persians are also called Luwati. They are the largest Shia Muslim group in Oman. Most of them are supposed to have come from India though they are originally from Iran and called Persians.

The Luwati are usually wealthy and live around the capital Muscat. The poorer ones live in a walled section in Matrah and where strangers are not allowed in and which is the only no-go zone in Oman. The main mosque is here.

They speak the Luwati language which is Iranian. There are a few Luwati Christians but no church planting.


Prayer Points

* Pray that as the Luwati read the Koran they will want to discover more about Jesus, read the Bible and give their lives to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
