Introduction / History

The Rahmani are a Bhat subgroup. The Bhat are known for their 'phakra' (speaking poetically in praise of others). They are mainly a landowning community. The Muslim Rahmani place themselves in the higher order of Muslim communities. Other communities may not agree.

What Are Their Lives Like?

During funeral practices, someone recites the kalima and verses from the Koran in the ears of a dying person.

What Are Their Beliefs?

Muslim Rahmani are Hindu converts to Sunni Islam, the religion of the Pakistani majority. The fact that there is little intermarriage between the Shia and Sunni sects within the community shows that they probably be resistant to any non-Muslim influence.

Prayer Points

Pray for the many the Lord will soon lead to himself among every Bhat people, including the Rahmani.
Pray this small community will be able to live in harmony with their neighbors.
Pray that Christ followers near the Rahmani will be prompted by the Lord to take the good news of Christ to them.
Pray for an unstoppable movement to Christ among the Muslim Rahmani people of Pakistan this decade.
