This is a true story of a man from Bangladesh named Abdul. Read about how a dream from Allah changed a Muslim’s life.
“He Would Never Denounce Me”
I had a happy and comfortable life in Bangladesh. I had a great house, job, and wife named Rosnita. One day I would exchange my success for marks on my back.
The constitution of Bangladesh promises freedom of religion. However, there has been an increase in cases of government persecution of non-Muslims. While working in a government position, I witnessed a man named Abraham sentenced to death because he started following Isa Al-Masih.
I asked Abraham, “Why don’t you denounce Isa Al-Masih?”
His reply shocked me, “I cannot denounce Isa Al-Masih because He would never denounce me!”
I tried to convince him to renounce his faith to be saved, but he refused.
Persistent Faith Awakened My Heart
Two days later Abraham was tortured with chains. One of the chains even crushed his skull. But Abraham just prayed to Isa. He had total peace. This touched my heart and gave me the desire to know Isa Al-Masih.
A few months later a Western man named Stuart approached me asking for directions. I asked him if he was a missionary. He answered that he was a follower of Christ.
Stuart and I became friends. We often discussed our differences in philosophies and beliefs. We started studying the Bible and Quran together. We found major discrepancies about Isa Al-Masih and salvation between Qs 4:157, 5:75 and John 1:29, 1 Corinthians 15:12-14.
Dream from Allah Changed A Muslim’s Life
I had difficulty sleeping while I wrestled with who Isa Al-Masih is. I wanted to accept Isa as Allah but couldn’t because of my upbringing.
One night I had a dream about Isa Al-Masih. He asked, “Who will you trust?” I immediately woke up and answered, “Isa, I trust you.” I finally found true peace. Email us if you want eternal peace from Isa.
Trials That Brought Peace
After my boss discovered my belief in Isa, I was fired and thrown in jail. It took one year for my wife to learn I was in jail and sentenced to death.
I was imprisoned for four years, but I maintained my new faith. I received many severe beatings. One time I woke up in a hospital in Dhaka with 14 broken bones and 32 lacerations. Finally, I was released from jail. But all the beatings left scars on my back.
New Life Full of Peace
I began a new life with Rosnita. At first, she wasn’t ready to follow Isa, but my faith touched her heart. Eventually Rosnita became a follower of Isa Al-Masih!
I might have lost some time in jail, but I gained eternal life. I never regret this path chosen for me. Although treated like a criminal, I am righteous in Allah’s eyes. My suffering was a small price to pay to be cleansed of my sin (Isaiah 53:5).
Please email us if you want to know Isa Al-Masih.

I gree you all my people in the Lord.
My question is this: Is Isa Jesus?
If yes then he’s in PARADISE.
Because in our Lord Jesus Christ our sins are taken away and another life has been giving to us.
Jesus said : He’s going to prepare a place for us and moreso he said in his father’s house are plenty of mansions.
Thank you for your comment.
Isa Al-Masih is Jesus Christ. He is in heaven now prepare a place for us, His followers, and He will come back and take us with Him (Injil, John 14:2-3). Whoever believes in Isa, his/her sins are forgiven and will be saved from punishment in hell and will have eternal life.
Because we are delivered from punishment in hell, we can live in peace, no more fear.

O you bro, reread the bible again, become Isa he was Muslim according to the Bible checks those chapters *Shahada-(Mark 12:29), *salat- (Matthew 26:39), *zakah- (Hebrew 10:25), *Fasting- (Matthew 4:1-1), *Hajj- (84:5-6). Please come to the way were Jesus being “Islam”.
Thank you for your comment.
First of all, the Bible and Quran are written differently. In the Bible, context is very important. It’s incredibly important not to take verses out of context otherwise the meaning will be changed.
For example, Mark 12:28 is a question asked to Isa and 12:29-31 is Isa’s answer which is about loving God and loving your neighbor as you love yourself as the greatest commandment.
In Matthew 26:36-46, Isa is getting ready to be taken to the cross for our sins and he is praying to God, His Father.
May I ask you, when you said Jesus was a Muslim, in the verse you quoted, Jesus was praying to His Father (The Father God). Does this mean that you acknowledge The Father God whom Jesus prayed to in Matthew 26:39?
“Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
The cup Isa was talking about was having to crucified for the sins of all the world.
In Hebrews 10:19-25, is an appeal to experience Isa’s power. Being ready for the Day. This Day is the day of Isa’s return. These passages are about encouraging godliness and love to each other.
Can you embrace a belief that came 600 years after you left earth?
Jesus lived in this word until 33 AD. Islam came about 600 years later.
Jesus came from God to this world to save humans from the punishment of sins. When He was 33 years old, He died on the cross and rose again in 3 days. He went back to heaven. Whoever believes in Jesus will be saved.
