Muslim Men Are Encouraged To Marry Christian Girls

The Muslim minority in Rwanda (5%) are very active in providing social care, for example, schools and health centres, visiting people in hospital, feeding the poor and vulnerable, providing low-interest credit, and hospital-visiting, Although Islam was mainly found in the towns previously, newly built mosques are appearing at 5km intervals in rural areas. Muslim young men are encouraged to marry Christian girls, who then convert to Islam. Five hundred young Rwandan Muslims were sent to Arab countries to study Islam in 2008, thus creating a strong cadre of well educated Muslim leaders that was previously lacking. Pray that Rwandan church leaders may be alert to Islamic strategies in their country and that Christians may be well grounded in their faith.
