I’ve been telling you for about a year now that the book SEEKING ALLAH FINDING JESUS is a very good one, even an important one. HERE is the writer’s testimony about having been raised a strong Muslim and coming to Christian faith, which I think is important for people to hear and understand. The short video is very powerful. I hope you take the time to listen to Nabeel Qureshi, a Muslim who found Jesus by arguing for Islam with an ex-atheist-turned-strong-Christian.
When looking for more on Qureshi, I found the following interview. This one REALLY shows how he was raised as a Muslim to believe their faith was peaceful, etc., and how 9/11 impacted him and his community. He doesn’t believe Islam needs REFORM because, interestingly, he feels that “reform means going back to the roots.” He reminds us that the roots of Mohammed are not where anybody should want to go, but that Islam needs to engage and open its heart to Christianity. By the way, I’ve mentioned here over the last few months how I’m hearing from missionaries that Muslims are seeing Jesus in dreams. The information spoken about dreams and Islam in the following video blew my mind. He also talks about the terrible toll his having left Islam for Christianity has taken on what was his very close relationship with his family and their standing in their Muslim community:
VERY uplifting stuff. I hope you consider his thoughts and are encouraged by his amazingly strong Christian faith today, and how many Muslims he says are leaving Islam. That’s one terrific young man.
Happy first Sunday of the year!
