There are many, many testimonies of Muslims coming to Christ. Many Muslims have visions or dreams for some reason. I have spoken face to face with a Muslim woman who had a vision of Jesus in a near death experience when she almost died at the age of ten, and then had another supernatural encounter as an adult in which her son was saved from being hit (literally) by a bus. Visions and dreams are a consistent theme in the testimonies of Muslims who have converted to Christianity.

Fazale Rana grew up in a home with an intellectual, pacifist, and devout Muslim father, and a Catholic mother. His mother was not religious at all, but his grandparents were devout. He was introduced to Islam and Christianity, but science was his chosen path, and he put off any religious ideas as he entered college and embraced the evolutionary paradigm. Quite apart from any religious influence, some aspects of the evolutionary paradigm were not adding up for him. As pushed forward on the path of becoming a scientist, he followed the evidence where it took him.

Nabeel Quareshi became a very compelling apologist for Christianity, but he was raised a Muslim. His story is below. The following link provides a shortened version of his story.


A longer version can be found here.

Abdu Murray also is a formidable Christian apologist, though he was born into a Muslim Lebanese family. He was raised as a good Muslim and was passionate about telling people about Islam, but the Christians he spoke to challenged him to do a comparative study of the two religions. What caused him to make the drastic change? This is his story.

This woman was a Sunni Muslim studying to become a doctor, but a friend challenged her to compare Islam to Christianity. She sincerely wanted to know the truth, and prayed to Allah to know the truth. This is her story.

A Saudi Muslim came to the US thinking that he would convert Americans to Islam. He learned that not every American is a Christian, as he thought, but the real Christians stood out. He came looking to introduce Americans to Islam, but got introduced to Jesus Christ, and it changed his life.


Al Fadi was born and raised in Saudi Arabia near the Red Sea. He lived close enough to Mecca that he went there once a month to pray. The more he studied Islam and the Qu’ran, the more fundamental he become. He was very devout and began to look down on non-Muslims and Muslims who were not as devout. When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, Al Fadi wanted to go an fight. He was willing to die in jihad as a martyr, because this is the only way a Muslim can be assured of going to heaven. Fortunately for him, his mother intervened. Instead, he went to Islamic university in Mecca. In spite of this devout Muslim beginning to his life, Al Fadi became a believer in Jesus Christ and, not just a believer, but an apologist for Christ.

This is a very straightforward and clearly stated explanation of the Gospel and the difference between Shia Islam and salvation through Jesus from Hossein.

Kamal Saleem was a strong Muslim who was on a mission of cultural jihad for Allah until he had a car wreck, and a Christian doctor and others showed him the love of Christ. He was confused. They had a personal relationship with God who answered their prayers so he called out to Allah, but Allah did not answer. Because he doubted his faith, he felt he had no other choice but to take his own life, and then he heard the voice of God.

People who grow up with Islam and convert to Christianity have some of the most remarkable testimonies. They often have dreams and visions and encounters with demonic spirits that Jesus delivers them from. Here is another testimony of a young woman who experienced the powerful deliverance of Jesus.

Khalida, a young Palestinian woman finds freedom and love in Christ.

British Pakistani Afsar Ahmed shares his testimony about answered prayer, the love of Christians and consistent daily example of Scripture.

This is a good testimony of a relatively secular Muslim who learned about Islam and Christianity at the same time, and this is his journey of coming to believe in Christ, including good commentary on the differences between Islam and Christianity.

Naeem Fazal grew up in the Middle East in a devout Muslim family. After listening to a talk about the end times with his brother, Naeem expressed concern about what it meant. His brother, who had been looking into Christianity, said he thought Jesus was the only person powerful enough to protect him. Naeem prayed a quick, skeptical prayer. What he experienced next over the following days was supernatural. His life has been radically changed. 

This man grew up 26 years as a Muslim in Pakistan, but he disliked what Islam directed him to be. He came to fall in love with a Hindu woman, but he learned that Islam would not allow them to marry. In Islam, they taught that it was not important to understand, just believe. He could not accept that so he began to speak out. He became an atheist. He feared for his life. Then things changed.


A Muslim woman wanted to kill herself and her dying mother, but an evangelist came on the television the night she was going to do it. Her mother responded by calling, repenting and accepting Jesus. The woman was furious, but she gave Jesus a week to prove Himself after arguing for an hour with the televangelist.

A compilations of many Muslim testimonies

Ghalib was a preacher of Islam and a successful business man in Lahore, Pakistan.

Fatima was born in Iran to a Muslim family. She never felt comfortable in Islam. She tried to find God in Islam, but he was not to be found there. Something in her would not rest. She cried and cried, and then Jesus appeared to her in a dream.

Rose and Masoud grew up in Iran as Muslims, but Masoud did not have any joy or satisfaction. He couldn’t find the forgiveness that he sought. Every day he confessed his sins, but there was no relief from the heaviness. He began to lose hope. He continued with the religious ritual, but there was no life in it for him.

Rose also grew up Muslim, but she despaired of her own life. In desperation, she prayed and was filled with the love of God. she began to perform the Islamic rituals to show her gratitude, but the presence of God she felt that day was missing. Years later she moved with her husband to Canada where she met Christians, but she rejected what they told her because she thought Islam was the right religion. As time went by, the despair for life crept back into her life. She cried out to God, asking why God would not come down and experience human life so he would understand, not knowing that this is exactly what God did in Jesus! When she found out, it changed everything.

Sam Khan grew up as a Muslim. He said his daily prayers, but he found himself drawn inexplicably to Jesus. He even stopped praying for a time until his life began to fall apart. When he began praying again, he found himself drawn again to Jesus again. Then a co-worker he liked invited him to church. At first he thought “these Christians” were crazy. One day he finally prayed, “Jesus, if you’re the savior, you have to show me.” He did, and now Sam is a “completely different person”..
