Aisha grew up in a family that hurled condemnation on her as she dealt with the shame of being undervalued as a woman in the Islamic culture.
And when she made a series of decisions, including becoming pregnant and getting an abortion at 17, she knew she faced death for dishonoring her family.
In the deepest and darkest moments of her despair, she cried out to Allah – but then she heard an audible voice and you won’t believe what it said.
As she begged Allah for help, Aisha heard one word – “Jesus.”
It was at that moment she shifted gears and began to cry out to Jesus, asking Him to reveal Himself to her.
And like our faithful Lord always does, He answered her prayers, and gave her a newfound sense of peace.
Always feeling shame and fear when going before Allah, Aisha recalled that when she prayed to Jesus, she experienced a supernatural peace – something she had never felt before.
Amazed by His grace, she wanted to learn more, so she dug into His word.
“All throughout scripture you see Jesus gravitate towards sinners and the outcasts,” she says.
“It was really interesting to see the tenderness that Jesus had toward sinners and outcasts whereas in Islam there would be shame and condemnation and literal death in certain situations.”
With a new heart, Aisha began seeking Jesus fervently and developed a heart and appetite for Scripture.
But while she walked in her newfound freedom in Christ, she still faced danger as her strict Muslim family was hostile towards Christianity.
But then, a miracle took place.
Her father was on his death bed and Aisha felt compelled to share the Gospel with him.
To her amazement, right before he died, he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior!
This amazing transformation shows the power of God to perform miracles in the lives of those who are faithful.
And this incredible story is just one of many that reveal the ways God is working all over the world in the hearts of Muslims.
While many people are hostile to Christianity, God reveals His power by changing the hardest of hearts and softening them towards Him.
In fact, many Muslims in remote areas of the world have reported supernatural dreams and visions they’ve had of Jesus.
Those who previously lived a life of violence and hostility towards Christianity have left their former ways and are now warriors for Christ.
We must continue to pray for Muslims all around the world – that God will continue to reveal Himself to them and show them the truth.
If you have a Muslim friend or coworker – don’t stop praying!
The power of God is alive and active, and He can use you to bring them into His kingdom.
