Introduction / History

The Nalband of India live in Haryana, western Uttarh Pradesh and the Punjab. The word Nalband comes from the Persian and Urdu meaning manufacturer of horseshoes.

The Nalband are Muslims. In Haryana they speak Haryani. In the Punjab they speak Punjabi. The Nalband of Punjab and Haryana marry each other. In the Punjab there are Sikh influences.

The Nalband are not landowners and their traditional work of horseshoe manufacturing has lessened. Most work as laborers.

In Uttarh Pradesh the Nalband speak Urdu. They marry with the Saifi too.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give the Nalband dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that when they read about Jesus Christ in the Koran that they will want to learn more about Him from the Bible and this will lead them to salvation too.
