Muslim Refugee Who Believed the Koran was 'God's Final Word' Embraces Christianity on His Deathbed, and Then, a Miracle

Leah Marieann Klett : Jul 12, 2017  Gospel Herald

While lying on his deathbed on the tent floor, the refugee told him, "I don't know if I'm going to be alive tomorrow or not, but your message is always in my mind. I want to go to Heaven, but I don't know how"...

[Gospel Herald] A Muslim refugee who once believed the Koran was "God's final word" and Islam was the "final religion eclipsing all preceding one" embraced Christianity on his deathbed—and was miraculously healed.

A ministry director working at a refugee camp in Turkey shared with Christian Aid Mission the story of a Muslim refugee from Raqqa, Syria. The man, in his 70's, was wary of foreign groups, as many people would come to take photos and videos of the refugees, but never provided any aid.

The director met the man at a site where refugees had erected about 100 makeshift tents. The refugee told him, "Everybody comes and takes a picture, makes a video, they register our name, but they never come back. You're one of them."

Two weeks later, the director returned to the refugee camp—with food, clean water, and other relief items.

"He saw me with the boxes we brought for them, and he was crying," he said. "He came and he hugged me. He said, 'We really thank you, you are the only man during the last two years that kept his word.'"

The refugee adamantly defended his religion, telling ministry director that Islam is the "final religion eclipsing all preceding ones, and the Koran God's final word."

After some months, the refugee fell seriously ill and asked the director to pray for him. While lying on his deathbed on the tent floor, the refugee told him, "I don't know if I'm going to be alive tomorrow or not, but your message is always in my mind. I want to go to Heaven, but I don't know how."

The director told him he had to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and God, and that He would forgive him and take him into the Kingdom of Heaven with Him.

"He started crying," the director said. "He said, 'I don't know if I can do that or not.' I said he could do it, and he called his brother, daughter and sons, and he said, 'I'm making a decision that I'm having Jesus Christ as God and Savior. I want you to come with me with that, believe it with me,' because in the Middle Eastern culture, whatever the fathers do, the rest of the family has to follow it."

The refugee repeated the director's prayer that Christ died on the cross for his sins, and he received Him as Savior and Lord.

Then, something miraculous happened.

"A week later, he became healthy," the director said. "So he's always teaching his family the Christian life."

The refugee's conversion experience is just one of...
