Testimony of Desert Son (Islam)

I was born in Saudi Arabia as a member of a Muslim family. We were a very happy family, and I loved my relationship with them. I also felt very happy because I did all the things that God asked me to. I had learned one sixth of the holy Quran by heart and a lot from the Hadieth. When I was a teenager, I was an Imam for the mosque.

I was always very serious to do all that God ordered me to do--fasting during Ramadan, praying five times a day or more, Hadj and so on. I was, at that time, very desirous to meet God at the last day, even when I had no guarantee. But I had always hoped for this. My hope grew when I started to think about fighting in the name of God (Jihad) in Afghanistan. I was sixteen years old. My parents would not let me go because I was too young. So I decided to wait until I was old enough.

I always had love and respect for the Muslim people. There was no love or respect in my heart for the Christians, and the Jews were my first enemy of course.

Far away from God

After some time, the devil found his way into our home and our life, and my life became very hard. Slowly I drifted far away from God until the time that I believed in no God at all.

My life became busy. I had a very good job and earned a lot of money. Still I was not happy because I was afraid for the day that I would die. Sometimes a question came to my mind--will I be with God in heaven or not? And it was very frightening to think about this, even for seconds, that I would not be there. What about my future?

A little prayer

One day I had a big problem in my life. I was in my room looking through the window up to the sky. Then I remembered God, and I wanted to pray to him to ask him for help, but which God should I pray to. Allah? I was sure that he was very angry with me because I had not prayed for a very long time. Or Jesus? I knew He had done a lot of miracles in the lives of other people. Then I said, “Jesus help me!” I don't know why I spoke like this. I sat down on my bed and spoke to myself, “What is this stupid thing you just did?” Anyway, I did not expect anything to happen or the problem to go away. However, one and a half days later, my problem was solved! I decided to find out who this Jesus is. Is he God as the Christian people say, or is he a prophet, as I know from Islam? At this time, I left my country and went to Europe.

The dream

On the third day, my circumstances became very difficult for me, and I decided to go back to Middle East. During that night I had a dream. I was standing in a cross shape with a low wall around it. In my right hand, I had a big stack of white unwritten papers. I was standing at the cross beam, and I was looking to a small group of people who were standing at the top. They all wore long white clothing, but one of them was different. He was standing at the right side, and with his left hand he was leading the people through a door in the wall. Beyond the door was light, and I could not see what was in there. One moment I was standing in the dream, and the next moment I was seeing the cross from above. It was difficult for me to understand this.

When I woke up the next morning, I felt a very beautiful happiness in my heart that I never had before. And I felt a love in my heart and from inside my body a very special feeling. I felt also I just wanted to walk and to walk and to ask every one I met, do you know Jesus?

It was more than a great feeling. It was happiness that I had never known before in my life.

After one year of reading the Bible in an honest way, I understand now what happened to me. I found my way to God, the real God, the Lord Jesus Christ. I hope now for all the people I love, my family, my friends, and everyone also to change and begin to read the Bible in an honest way. I am sure that God will help them to find their way.

My life now

I feel love in my heart, and I am very happy to know Jesus. When I was a Muslim, I could never imagine that the Christians were right. After that, I found out how much God loves me, and I became a Christian. Yes, He loves me, He loves you, and He loves the whole world. Jesus Christ loved us, and He still does. And don't forget in the last day nobody can save us, only Jesus Christ.

Dear brother/sister,

Come to know Jesus before it is too late.

John 8:12

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

A God who cant save himself - Jesus
How he can save the people? there was a world before Jesus.
who took care of that world? who is the creator of parents of Jesus? is that jesus Himself? and he dead pathetic in the cross by suffering so much pain? is it? how a God can suffer pain? Do a God need to suffer all these pain?
Come to the right path brother .
Worship Allah.

Afsal,
God is all powerful and can, therefore, save anyone. God CHOSE do die on that cross. He could have stopped what was going on at any moment.
Think about something. We are separated from God by the evil that is inside us. Can we make ourselves perfect or remove the evil inside of us? No. The only thing that could remove that evil is death. But could we die for ourselves? Of course not - we'd just be dead. So if death is required, the only one who could possibly take that death is God Himself. But Afsal, you missed something. Jesus, God in the flesh, did not stay dead - He rose from the dead, proving once and for all that death and sin were defeated and He truly is God!

People, like Afsal, had always used human limited ways to reason things of Heaven. We err in that way, and Jehovah gave us His own description bit by bit in the Bible. We can never fully understand the majesty of God, it will take us eternity to do so. Let us pray for Afsal, so that he sees the Way, the Truth and the Life. Stay blessed.

Dear Karaz Bishara and all our Christian friends ...
I will greet you as Jesus peace be upon him and my prophet Muhammad peace be upon him teach me .. Peace be upon you or peace on you ...
I know the big difference between the ideas about God between Christianity and Islam ...Actually we believe in the God this is my opinion ... We worship one God ... who creat us , whom Adam ,Abraham,Moses ,Jesus and Mohammed peace be upon them all pray for and worship ... we can't forget the worship of Jesus peace be upon him to the only true God as he said ,so how some one will worship himself .... because he wanted as to follow him to worship the only true God ..not to worship him !!
with love :) :-)

Afsal,
You use human standards to reason about Jesus. Let me do the same. I am a True Believer in Christ Jesus and I believe He is God Incarnated. You believe in a god called Allah. My God GUARANTEES me a place in Heaven, for FREE if I only have FAITH i.e. NO GOOD WORKS ARE A PREREQUSITE. Here, on earth, He promises a peace that surpasses all understanding, I have it. He promises to give me all I need if I wait for Him, I have more than enough. He warns me of all the troubles before they happen and more. I do not fear anything including death. This is what I get from Jesus daily. What can Islam offer which is better than this? I do not need to help my Jesus with anything i.e. by killing for Him. He's got an army of angels to do that.

Using the same human standards you used to make your point, I am gonna use the same. Jesus, My Lord and Saviour, GUARANTEES me a place in Heaven, to share His chair in Kingship, to become a judge to have riches and places beyond my wildest imagination. These are GUARANTEED not maybes or possibilities. Here on earth, I feel loved by Him, protected, I have peace that surpasses human understanding. He gives me more than I need, always. I do not fear anything including death. I do not have to pray in a language I do not understand, I do not have to do anything to impress Him, I am guaranteed these thing FOR FREE. My part is to have faith in the One who loved me so much that He died, so that I can have all life, all beauty and everything. Also, I only need to change my sinful ways as a result of the grace He will supply for that change if I open my heart to receive it. NO RELIGION CAN MATCH WHAT CHRIST JESUS GIVES US. He is God incarnated for ALL that believe.

Roni, Accepting Jesus as your Savior is the first step. To grow in faith and develop a personal relationship with Jesus you must read the Bible. Read it daily and pray for understanding. When you come to Christ with a sincere heart and a desire to be close to Him, He will draw near to you. James 4:8. Jesus has given you everything you need to be close to him. If you want a personal relationship with Jesus, it is up to you to make the effort. It is similar to making and being a friend in real life. If you want a friend, you must first be a friend. If you are a friend of Jesus, you will want to get to know everything about Him.. How much time do you spend reading the Bible? He will reveal Himself to those who earnestly seek him. It could be that you are still trying to live your life on your own rather than surrendering your whole life to Jesus. Give God the best part of your day, spend time in His Word, and your relationship with Him will grow. Make Jesus #1 in your life.

Roni, Its been about 2 years since your question. Are you close to the Lord now? Jesus taught us, "ask and ye shall receive". If you don't feel close to the Father, then talk to Him about that. Ask Him--tell Him you want to be close to Him, and to show you anything that stands in the way. The Bible says, "How much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him". Ask Him to fill you with the Holy Spirit. I have found that God meets me and changes me when I am real with him--if I don't feel like praying, I talk to Him about that!

Roni,
1. Are you born again? That comes by repenting of your sins and believing that Jesus died on the cross and rose again. I say this because many claim to be Christians, but have never actually become true Christians.
2. Are you filled with the Spirit? If you are not filled with the Spirit, the solution is simple--ask. "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" (Luke 11:13)
What you need is to be close to God. The solution: "Ask, and you shall receive." Talk to God about how you don't feel close. Ask Him to show you how to be close! Ask him to show you if there is anything hindering that closeness. And listen. He will guide you.

Your part is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and to repent of sins, and ask. God gives you the Holy Spirit, new life, wisdom, and works in you to will and to do his good pleasure.

we are like lost sheep, as fatherless children, we need to return to the father, who we offended in the past, and sees God in the name of Jesus asks the Father to forgive your sins, that He will accept you as his son, and He is faithful and just accept you as their prodigal son, leave your past life and you get ready to live a new life for Jesus Christ

You can pray for your Muslim friends, give them the holy Scriptures (we supply free Gospels in Arabic/English) , and look at them through the eyes of Christ.

Lovely testimony there. I'm deeply moved and challenged by such testimonies as I am aware that it is not easy to convert fro Muslim to Christianity. It shows me more and more that God is @ work, I was born and bread Christian but I learn new amazing things about how , God is able to do exceedingly more than we can ever imagine. I want to leave u my fav verse.....ps23 The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want... Call unto Him and He reveal Himself to u, stay blessed

Dear Christian friends ....
why did Jesus peace be upon him never say I am the God or worship me frankly ? I hope you will find one sentence in the bible Jesus peace be upon him said it frankly ....
Tell me where it is ?
I can tell ... you will never find it ..
He said he was the way to God ,and of course that true ,any prophet at his time sent by God will be the only way to God ,,,
So he said the truth but you want to understand different ..
Think about that please and read the bible by your eyes and understand it and test it by your heart ..... don't follow other ideas you have Brain as they have .... and you love God as they love ...
The bible is between your hands , just read it and you will be exactly the Christ follower...
To be continued ...
With love (:

Dear Christian friends ...
I want you to read Matthew 24:36
"but about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father"
Why did Jesus peace be upon him said that ... the God must be all knowing ? Correct??!!
That because the father is the only almighty ,all knowing and true God ...
To be continued ..
With love (:

When Jesus Christ came here as a man he was in our weak flesh. He was still fully and equally God but the bible says He became lower than the Angels (Hebrews 2:9) because he was here in this world he was in our timeline. When Jesus Christ is in heaven He is with the Father, outside of time. But since he was here on the earth in the same flesh as us He became submissive to God the Father. 1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
