I wrote about the vicious and deadly assaults against Christians in Nigeria here and how westerners cannot fully understand what these martyrs are going through.
This video published by the Voice of the Martyrs USA profiles Suleiman Abdulai, a Nigerian Christian who converted from Islam. His Muslim family urged him to deny Jesus’ name and even tried to kill him before finally disowning him. Although faith in Christ cost Suleiman his family, worldly possessions and reputation, he gained everything by taking up Christ’s cross.
It is eye-opening to see how he describes the mentality of the those practicing Islam in Nigeria.
The video opens with this statement and lays the foundation for the whole interview:
“When you persecute or kill a Christian, there is a place for you in heaven with Allah, so this makes every Muslim want to fulfill their desire to do what the Koran says… it is part of the worship of Islam.”
