The Tablighi Jamaat is a Muslim missionary movement that seeks to inspire nominal Muslims to follow the Islamic faith more devoutly.
Each year, especially in South Asia, members of the group convene at large international gatherings for prayer and teaching. Although meetings were called off this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, followers of the movement had already gathered at some locations throughout South Asia. Many caught the virus, and some were stranded in foreign countries.
Pray for Tablighi Jamaat members who are recovering from the coronavirus and who are quarantined far from home. Pray for peaceful relations between Hindus and Muslims in South Asia. Pray that, as they seek God, members of the Tablighi Jamaat would be receptive to dreams and visions of Jesus.
