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."

I was a muslim too but have accepted Jesus as truth. I understand afsals points but add that Jesus died out of love when he could have saved himself suffering. He died for you Afsal. Ask Him to show you His reality and you will understand only dont harden your heart. Jesus is Love. Where is that in islam?
THE GREATEST LOVE IS TO LAY YOUR LIFE DOWN FOR OTHERS
If you can do that tell me.
All of u let us pray for Afsal to know Jesus

Quoting RONI:
I AM A CHRISTIAN. I TOO WANT O BE CLOSE TO THE LORD. SO FAR WITHOUT SUCCESS.PLEASE HELP ME.I WILL BE GRATEFULL TO YOU. THANKYOU


Please know that Jesus is Lord. The just shall live by faith. Live your life knowing that Jesus died on the cross and He rose again. Confess your sins daily and ask God to fill you with HIs Holy Spirt. Don't let the devil steal your joy. Just rest in His promises and talk to Him daily. Thomas, one of the disciples of Christ did not believe that Jesus rose again and he said that he would not believe until he saw with his own eyes. Jesus appeared to him. Have faith because faith is the substance of things not seen. Stop fighting it and live by faith, pray and talk to the Lord. Don't be looking for fleshy feelings of feeling God in your life. Live by faith and remember his promises. You are saved if you accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

I applied a simple historical method to know which book is the truth: the Quran states it was given TO CONFIRM the taurat and the injil...so applying dating of documents, what is written later cannot deny the earlier! Quran must confirm or historically it is a false document. Bible forever!

Christ could have saved himself from death on the cross at any point if he had chosen to do so. He chose instead to sacrifice himself according to God's will. He paid the price for our sins which is death. his sacrifice was prophesied throughout the Holy scriptures from the point God cast Adam and Eve from the garden and told the serpent he would bruise the heel of the son of man (Christ would be killed) but the Son of man would bruise the head of the serpent ( satan defeated by the sacrifice and resurrection of Christ). Pray that God will reveal the truth to you and not allow you to be deceived. He is faithful to save.

Philip said, "Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied."
Jesus replied, "Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don't know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you?"

Your father Abraham rejoiced as he looked forward to my coming. He saw it and was glad."
The people said, "You aren't even fifty years old. How can you say you have seen Abraham?"
Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I Am!" The people picked up stones to stone him. John 8:58

Jesus shouted to the crowds, "If you trust me, you are trusting not only me, but also God who sent me. For when you see me, you are seeing the one who sent me. I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark."

"No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!"
