“In Islam, liberty, freedom, and monarchy are idols that must be brought down. The liberty in the United States and western nations is anti-islam, so America must be changed. I moved to the ‘Bible Belt’ specifically, wanted to take on the Christians, the best of the best, because I considered myself as the sword of Islam. I thought, ‘I’m anointed. I’m unique. I’m selected. I’m coming to a country and a culture to change it. I have the power of Allah with me.’” When Kamal Saleem* made this statement, he did not know God’s destiny for him.
In the early 1980s, Kamal entrenched himself in a small Midwestern town. He began targeting men from more impoverished neighborhoods to recruit them to the Muslim faith. But one afternoon, his life would be in the hands of those he hated the most.
“I was going from one place to another to do recruitment, and that day, and I had a car wreck. The car wreck was so severe, I ejected out of my car, landed on my neck, and broke my neck in two places. This man came running to me and said, ‘Don’t worry. We’re going to take care of you, and everything’s going to be alright.’ The ambulance came and picked me up, and I was taken to the hospital. The orthopedic surgeon in the ER looked at my chart and said, ‘Son, we’re going to take care of you, and everything’s going to be alright.’ Then the head of physical therapy came in, read my chart, and said the same thing word for word, ‘We are going to take care of you.’”
At first, Kamal was frightened by their words because these men were all Christians. “You see, in terrorism, if they say [that], you better run.” Those who had spoken to him and said they were going to take care of him and everything was going to be alright, had no idea he had come to the nation to destroy their very way of life.
In Day #12, we will reveal that before Kamal ever knew Jesus, our God provided for him, met his needs, and opened his spiritual eyes.

Proverbs 19:21 declares, “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” Pray that God will override the personal plans of the 1.9 billion Muslims, reveal His purpose to their hearts, and give them the courage and strength to respond to His will for their lives.
