Introduction / History

The Pahlavani are of the Persian people cluster. They are found in Afghanistan, mainly in the Chakhansoor Province.

Their primary language is now Dari, shifting from the Pahlavani language.

The Pahlavani are primarily Shia Muslims. There are few, if any, Christians or churches among them and there are currently no Christian resources translated into Pahlavani. However, there are many resources available in the Dari language.
