The Salat or Salaat are Muslim converts from the Hindus. Salaat comes from the word Saliya which means stone. They are stone cutters by tradition.
The Salat were originally from Sindh and they migrated to Rajasthan. They speak Gujarati with words from Marwari.
The Salat are endogamous (meaning they prefer to marry within their group) and prefer to marry close relatives. They are involved in building mosques and temples. In addition to stone cutting, many are building contractors or do trading.
The Salat have a community organization that looks after them and it is called a Jamat.
* Pray that the Jamat will come to Jesus Christ and lead the other Salat to Him.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to Salvation too.
* Pray that gospel materials will bring the Salat to Jesus Christ.
