Former Muslim Terrorist Converts To Christianity After Seeing Jesus In A Dream, “The Bible Became My Weapon”


Ephesians 6:12-17, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God … and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God …”

Unlike the sword of jihad, this is the one and only Sword that he’ll be blessed to live and die by

Psalm 70:4, “Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; And let those who love Your salvation say continually, ‘Let God be magnified!’”

Luke 2:25-30, “… there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout… It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: ‘Sovereign Lord, as you have promised … my eyes have seen your salvation …'”

By Carey Lodge, Christianity Today – “A former Muslim cleric who converted to Christianity after meeting Jesus in a dream was abandoned by his family and brutally beaten. He now says his faith taught him how to forgive.

In an interview with World Watch Monitor, Tofik (not his real name) described his training as an extremist Muslim cleric in West Africa. As a young man he was taught to hate Christianity, and he and his fellow pupils ‘went to the nearby town and met believers. We beat them and then attacked the church.’

‘Our teachers would tell us every time there was a new church in town and we were told to go and attack the people and destroy the church. So that’s what we did,’ he explained. Many students burnt Bibles, but Tofik says something stopped him from joining in. He even kept a Bible for many years, not knowing why, though he says he ‘now understand[s] it was God holding my hand’.

After further training in Saudi Arabia, Tofik returned to his hometown and became a prominent Imam, leading the construction of 16 new mosques. He forbade the preaching of Christianity, but eventually became got involved in an interfaith tree-planting project. It was around that time that he had a dream about Jesus.

‘There was an incident in 2002 where I had a vision from the Lord early in the morning around 3 am. In the vision I saw Jesus very clearly telling me to follow him,’ he said.

‘I asked the person who was calling me to follow him, ‘Who are you?’ He said, ‘I am Jesus Christ’.’

After going back to sleep, he saw Jesus again. ‘Jesus appeared saying ‘It’s Me, follow Me. When you follow me you will pay a price, there will be persecution in your life, but in the end you will be victorious. I am with you,” he recalled.

Tofik converted to Christianity and began attending church, but his family were too afraid to join him. He was considered ‘as good as dead’ by the Muslim community, who destroyed his house, set it on fire, and stole his cattle. Tofik then planted a church in the compound where he lived, which caused such outrage that he was beaten and almost killed.

    That Muslim heard a voice behind him saying: this is the way walk ye in it. That is why he kept the bible. That opened up his mind to receive Jesus in the dream.

    To be sure, the name, Saul of Tarsus comes to mind! Off hand, I can’t help wondering how many Bible-believing Christians were converted to izzlam as a result of seeing a vision of allah–ahemm–I mean SATAN???
