Jihadist Gives His Life To Christ:
“We Used To Worship In Fear. Now Everything Has Changed”

A former Jihadist who has fought on the frontlines with a militant Islamic group
has opened up about how he ended gave his life to Christ. Bashir Mohammed
was actively involved with Islamic militants in the Syrian Civil War. “Frankly,
I would have slaughtered anyone who suggested it,” he told a reporter for the
Times of India. So what caused his change of heart?
Well, one day he found himself peering through binoculars at Syrian government
soldiers executing their prisoners, and he suddenly realized there was no difference
between him and the enemy. He deserted al Nusra and fled with his wife to Istanbul.
At this time, he was still a follower of Islam, but that was about to change. His wife
Rashid became seriously ill, so Bashir did the unthinkable and allowed a Christian
cousin living in Canada to have his prayer group life up prayers for her over the phone.
His wife recovered within a few days, and Bashir’s heart began to change towards
Christ. Bashir asked his cousin to introduce him to someone who could tell him more
about Christ. After many long conversations with a missionary Bashir was close to
renouncing Islam to follow Jesus.
Then came the incredible dreams. Rashid dreamed that a character from the Bible
miraculously parted the sea; Bashir dreamed that Jesus gave him some food. “There’s
a big gap between the god I used to worship and the one I worship now,” Mohammed said.
“We used to worship in fear. Now everything has changed.”
