There are many Arab groups and Arabized tribes in Sudan, but one of them stands out. It is the Awlad Hassan. Their ancestors were Yemeni merchants who controlled the desert trade routes hundreds of years ago. Later the Awlad Hassan imposed themselves on the local Berber peoples in North Africa. Instead of speaking a Yemeni form of Arabic they now speak the same Sudanese Arabic language as the other Arabs in this country.
The Awlad Hassan live as successful businessmen and merchants in Sudan. They are deeply engaged in the commercial activities of the cities in Sudan and South Sudan.
The Awlad Hassan have deep roots in the Islamic religion. At this point in time, they would not consider a different way to viewing the world, nor would they turn away from the religion of their ancestors.
The Awlad Hassan community needs to know that they desperately need Jesus Christ, the only savior.
Pray for the end of violence between the tribes of Sudan.
Pray for a spiritual hunger and thirst among the Awlad Hassan people that will lead them to find the Savior.
Pray for Holy Spirit directed workers to go to them with the gospel.
Pray for a Disciple Making Movement to sweep through all Awlad Hassan families.
