Muslim Converts To Christianity After Studying “Allah’s Laws”
The Spirit of God prompted this man to do something that Islam discourages all Muslims from doing: Asking difficult questions. But he listened, and it changed his life forever …
Qur’an Surah 5:101-102, “O ye who believe! Ask not questions about things which if made plain to you, may cause you trouble … Some people before you did ask such questions, and on that account lost their faith.”
Hadith, Sahih Bukhari 1:3:92, “The Prophet was asked about things which he did not like, but when the questioners insisted, the Prophet got angry.”

By George Thomas, CBN News – “Shahid is proof that God is moving powerfully across parts of Muslim-majority Middle East and North Africa.
Shahid (not his real name for security purposes), is from Libya and grew up a devout Muslim.
‘As every Libyan, when I was a little boy, I used to go to the Koranic school,’ Shahid told Leading The Way with Dr. Michael Youssef, a Christian television and radio ministry that broadcasts in more than 190 countries around the world.
Shahid spent 14 years of his life attending Muslim schools, where a strict interpretation of Islamic jurisprudence was taught. He became an expert in the Koran, even memorizing the entire Muslim holy book.
But the closer he examined the Muslim laws, the more he become disillusioned with what he read.
‘Islam was completely exposed with its hidden reality,’ Shahid said of studying Islam. ‘Little by little, I had serious concerns about Islam.’
To get some answers to his questions, he sought the advice of friends and family. But they told him not to question his faith. They even became hostile.
‘They told me there is a verse in the Koran that urges Muslims not to seek answers to questions about some things, as it may hurt them if they know the answers.’
The doubt. The questions. The inaccuracies of his faith tormented Shahid.
‘I lived in a struggle for more than four years,’ Shahid told LTW in a video produced by the organization.
Desperate and despondent, Shahid said he decided to abandon the faith of his childhood and become an atheist.
‘I got to a point when Islam had no part of my life, and religion ceased to exist and Muhammad meant nothing to me.’
It was around this time that Shahid came across Kingdom SAT, Leading The Way’s 24-hour satellite channel, which broadcasts across the Muslim world.
With the help of Leading The Way partners in the Middle East, Shahid secretly connected with Christians in Lebanon and Jordon and eventually was introduced to Jesus Christ.
‘I learned about who Jesus is and how to be a Christian. We studied how to live with Christ, fellowship with Him, and be part of the church.’
After several months of intensive Bible studies, Shahid said he ‘accepted Jesus’ salvation and got baptized.’
Inspired with revelation of God’s profound love for him, Shahid said he felt compelled to share his new found faith with his countrymen in Libya and others across the region.” Read more.

In every facet of daily life a Muslim’s conduct must be based upon a strict set of Islamic laws, called the Sharia, and anyone failing to follow ‘Allah’s’ burdensome edicts must suffer draconian punishments, non-Musims included. But take a look at the Islamic world today. Is it exemplified by peace and justice and social harmony because of ‘Allah’s laws’? To the contrary, the Islamic world is ravaged by war, by deprivation, by desert and famine and starvation and pestilences, conditions that are true both physically and spiritually, both literally and figuratively. Because of ‘Sharia lawlessness’ the ‘Religion of Peace’ is typified by widespread destruction and disparity, and any number of recent headlines bear this out all too well…” Read more.
