Introduction / History

An alternative name for the Momna is Momin, which in Arabic means a true follower of the faith. The Muslim Momna were Hindus before conversion to Islam. Most live in Gujarat, a state of India that borders Pakistan, but a small number are in Pakistan’s Sindh Province. These Momna people speak Sindhi.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Most Momna are farmers. They have their own caste association which governs the community.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Some are now Sunni Muslim and others are Shia, which has created a rift within the community. To make the rift even worse, there is also a Wahabi group of Momna. These three religious subdivisions generally live in three different locations. People do not often marry across these subdivision lines. The three religious subdivisions are in turn made up of several clans.


What Are Their Needs?

These Muslims have almost no way to hear about the wonderful grace of Jesus Christ.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Momna in Pakistan.

Pray for peaceful relations between the Sunni, Shia, and Wahabi sects within this people group. Pray that this will be the decade where there is a massive movement to Christ among the Momna community, both in India and Pakistan. As far as we know there are no followers of Christ among them. Pray for workers.
