Introduction / History

This Muslim people group lives in Rajasthan, which was once a corridor where Islamic armies invaded the Hindu subcontinent. At some point they converted from Hinduism to Islam.


Where Are they Located?

The Muslim Nyaria people live in Rajasthan, a state in northwestern India where almost everyone is a Hindu.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Nyaria people are noted for their folk tales regarding their religious festivals and prophets. They often learn the Urdu language in their madrasas, Islamic religious schools.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Nyaria people are Sunni Muslims. They pray at the mosque on Fridays, but they also go on their own pilgrimage to Ajmer Shariff. Like other Muslims in India, the Nyaria people blend other beliefs in with their form of Islam. They look to charms and amulets to protect them on a daily basis, though they depend on Allah, the God of Islam, for eternal salvation.


What Are Their Needs?

The Nyaria people need to put their faith and hope in Jesus Christ alone, not in any religious system.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Nyaria in India.

* Pray the hearts of the Nyaria people would be stirred to hunger after God, to drink of living water.
* Pray for family-based disciple-making movements to soon transform Nyaria society, blessing them spiritually and economically.
* Pray for the Lord to move in the hearts of believers to give up their own rights and sacrifice their lives to see the Nyaria people blessed by the work of Jesus Christ, the only savior.
