Christ Miraculously Shields Islamic Convert Against Persecution.

Christ Miraculously Shields Islamic Convert Against Persecution.

Maheen* (Not real name) had always been an observant Muslim. He was given a Bible by a team of Free Bible distributors and Underground House Church. He took it home and just kept it in his room, but did not care about it.
Maheen* went to sleep at night. An angel came to him, touched his shoulder and said, “Read Acts 26:23 from the Holy Scripture which you received.” He thought it was a strange dream and went back to sleep.

A short time later, the angel touched his shoulder again – this time more firmly — and said, “Get up and read Acts 26:23 from the Bible. It is a verse for you.” Still groggy and half-asleep, it was difficult for Maheen to process what happened. He decided to ignore the unusual dream and go back to sleep.
A third time the angel appeared while Maheen slept. This time, the angel nudged him strongly and said, “Get up and read the Bible as I said.” This time, Maheen bolted out of bed, frantically grabbed his new Bible, and began to read from the Book of Acts:
“That Christ was to suffer, and that by reason of His resurrection from the dead He should be the first to proclaim light both to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles.” (Acts 26:23).
The striking visitation, the power of God’s Word, and the Holy Spirit brought Maheen to his knees. He acknowledged his sins before God and accepted Jesus as his Savior and Lord.
Maheen* became a strong believer in Jesus Christ. But his wife Muneera*(not real name) did not believe in Jesus Christ. Maheen tried to convince her several times about the need of Salvation, and also the importance of reading and meditating on the Bible, the Word of God. But Muneera did not even listen to him because she was influenced by her brother Siddhiq*, (not real name) who is an extremist, working in Saudi Arabia.
Maheen was baptized. Actually he was waiting to be baptized for a long time, because he wanted his wife Muneera to be baptized with him. Finally, he got baptized without His wife.
Muneera informed her brother and immediately he landed from Saudi Arabia. He wanted Maheen to return back to Islam. He tried to carry him to Saudi Arabia by offering him a great position. Also he offered a big house and property to Maheen. But Maheen said plainly:
“The Lord Jesus is far… and very far above any of the offers of this world. I may be killed, but I will never deny Jesus, for He is my Lord and Savior who granted me eternal life.”
This provoked Siddhiq and his gang. They brutally beat him in front of his wife and locked him in a dark room. They did not provide him with proper food and facilities. They did not even allow his wife to see him at all. For 17 days he was locked in the dark room.
Everybody thought Maheen will change his decision and return back to Islam. But they noticed he became stronger in the faith of Jesus day by day. So they took a decision to save Muneera from her husband by killing him.
For her it was a rude shock. Because she never expected the thought of killing would come from her brother and father. She personally prayed to God, the Almighty. While she was praying she saw Heaven and the Lord Jesus sitting on the throne. Maheen was at the palm of His (God’s) right hand, praising Him along with the angels and washing human souls with the blood which flowed like a beautiful stream from the heart of Jesus Christ. Muneera tried to reach her husband Maheen, but she could not. Because there was a big gap in between Heaven and Muneera. In fact, she had seen a bridge in the shape of a Cross over the gap; but it was taken back to heaven when she attempted to enter the Cross. That’s why ‘she could not go to heaven to reach her husband.’
Muneera confessed with tears, and accepted the Lord Jesus as her Savior and prayed for Maheen not to have any harm.
Then she telephoned the leader of the Free Bible distribution team and Underground Church – the group who gave her husband free bible and also where he attended church service. She explained to him all the details. The Leader was also a convert from Islam facing such kind of experiences. He reached the place and met the believers first. There were few Christian believers who were converted from Islam. They prayed together and approached a politician. By his help they met a senior police officer and the police forcely released Maheen from the dark room.
That same evening, a mob gathered with weapons under the leadership of Siddhiq to attack the church leader.

Immediately, some of the local people, who are secret followers of Jesus Christ hid him from the spot of the attack to another house. He believes that he was protected by God because of the prayers of the children of God.
Now Maheen and Muneera have two children. A boy and a girl. They are involved in the Gospel work with “Bibles For Mideast”, distributing Bibles freely and establishing house churches in the Middle East.
There are thousands of secret believers in the Middle East. They are thirsty for the Word of God.
“Bibles For Mideast” is an underground ministry that distributes Bibles freely and establishes house churches over there. The middle east population is Approximately 500 million and we pray to our Lord to supply enough Bibles.

“It is a great task. We work very secretly. We worship secretly. We collect Bibles for distribution also in a secret way. We are in need of supports, but we don’t get it. So very often we go for laboring works and earn for our lives and for the team”, Maheen and Muneera said.
