Thanks to my Christian Faith Family and dearest friend Chilkuri Sushil Rao from The Gospel Truth Newspaper,
Here is my testimony
This staunch Muslim of Pakistan was asked to join ‘Jihad’ but instead chose Jesus who he saw in a vision.
Ahsan Nabi Khan of Lahore, Pakistan was urged to join Jihad. He was a hardcore Muslim. Khan openly showed his hatred towards Jesus and Christians. But one day, he saw Jesus. His life changed. The 32-year-old had a miraculous change of heart and now proclaims the name of Jesus. He faces threats but he is not scared. Life wasn’t easy for Khan before he found peace in Jesus Christ. “I suffered from mental disorders since September 11, 2001. Doctors diagnosed it as schizoaffective disorder. I felt helpless, and could not concentrate on work, had anxiety of going into hell, of starving to death because of joblessness,” he recalls. Being the staunch Muslim that he was, Khan urged people to accept Shariah. Several times he even broke the TV set at home because he considered it ‘immorality’. So strong were his views that he even, burned his grandfather’s wall photos as he saw them to be ‘haraam’ and ‘idolatory’ in Salafi Law. “I had intolerant views about Jews and Christians,” he says. And a time came when he was invited to join Mullah Omer in Jihad. He, however, did not. But Khan wanted to live as per the Koran. That meant quitting several jobs. Life became tough. “Completely failed, depressed, hopeless, I finally attempted suicide by swallowing many doses of a medicine,” he says. But he was rushed to the hospital. He even had to be periodically taken to the mental hospital for his behavior.
“There I used to shout out verses of Koran loudly criticizing the claim that Jesus Christ is Son of God, until I met real Christians there. I saw Jesus movie, I discussed in chat online, until one day I dreamt of Jesus coming as Emmanuel down from heaven as ‘God With Us’. This was 2011. After getting baptized on Sunday, September 11, 2011, my whole attitude on life changed. No Jihad. No War. No Shariah. Love. Tolerance. Hope. Suffering with Patience. And Healed in Christ Jesus from all mental disorders,” Ahsan Nabi Khan explains. Doctors and family also vouched for the fact that he had become completely alright. But standing up for Jesus was has not been easy. “I have faced death threats in offices and universities, discredited, ignored, and denied. But I still believe in Jesus, walk the talk with Him and stand up for my principles. I will never be the same again,” he says.
