Proverbs 28:8, ESV
A person who makes money by charging interest will lose it. It will end up in the hands of someone who is kind to the poor.

One of the things that Islamic peoples understand is that it’s wrong to cheat the public with high interest rates. In secularized America, there are places that offer “advances” to people’s paychecks that charge interest rates that rival those charged by organized crime networks. In Hindu India there are similar situations. Such situations multiply when people turn their backs on the ways of God.

Pray that the Momin-Ansari people will understand that there are areas where they agree with the principles of the Bible.

“This is a great day! I thank Allah for giving me wonderful parents, great teachers, and the privilege to have studied at G.M. Momin Women’s College, which has been awarded ‘The Best College in Mumbai.’” Rafia, a Momin Muslim, was addressing her fellow students and teachers at an appreciation dinner prior to accepting her masters degree in chemistry.
She continued, “I can honestly say that Momin Women’s College has given me confidence and self-reliance to meet today’s challenges. In a few weeks I will begin my studies to become a medical doctor. I’m so grateful!”
The 14,900,000 Momin-Ansari people live mainly in the cities of western and northern India. Some reside in Pakistan, and a small number of them live in the Terai Region of Nepal. Many are now successful entrepreneurs and professionals such as teachers, engineers, and doctors. Others are found working in the textile industry where their communities overlap with Ansari weavers. Education is important to them, and they are one of the few Muslim groups to promote higher learning among their women.

Pray that Momin Muslims will have contact with followers of Christ who will share His spiritual riches with them. Pray for them to come to know the Living Lord so they can have a life filled with the reassurance of His peace, joy and most important, His salvation.
