Kamal Saleem* experienced the trauma of a car accident when his neck was broken in two places and then was shocked that his Christian surgeon invited him to recover in his home. The love from the family, the children praying for him and calling him Uncle Kamal, etc., had left him confused. The Christians that he considered infidels had overwhelmed him with their love.
Kamal recovered and returned to his own home. He sought Allah, crying out to hear from him, and all he heard was silence. Kamal felt that because he questioned his faith, the honorable thing to do was to end his own life.
Kamal shared, “I went to reach for my gun, and suddenly I heard a voice. The voice was so real; it was kind, gentle and meek, like a father’s voice. The voice knew me by name and said, ‘Kamal! Why don’t you call on the Father of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob?’ I fell on my knees and put my hands to the heavens immediately as I heard the voice. I cried out with every fiber within me, ‘God of Father Abraham, if You are real, would You speak to me? I want to know You.’ Well, God of Father Abraham came to the room and filled the room with His glory. His name is Yahweh; the Lord is one. He has holes in His hands. He has holes in His feet. His name is Jesus. I said to Him, ‘Who are you, my Lord? Who are you?’ He said, ‘I am that I am.’ I said, ‘I’m a simple man with a simple mind. What is that supposed to mean?’ He said, ‘I am the Alpha. I am the Omega. I am the beginning. I am the end. I am everything that is in between. I have known you before I formed the foundation of the earth. I have loved you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Rise up! Rise up, Kamal. Come. You are my warrior. You are not their warrior.’ I said to Him, ‘My Lord, I will live and die for you.’ He said, ‘Do not die for me. I died for you so that you may live.’”
That day, instead of taking his life, Kamal yielded it to Jesus and had a total transformation! It is 36 years since he left the Islamic faith, and even threats of violence and death cannot stop him from sharing his story. Through his ministry, KoomeMinistries.com, Kamal now has a new mission for Christ, traveling, speaking, and challenging Muslims to question their allegiance to Allah. Thousands, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, have responded to the call of salvation. Kamal shared, “My heart’s desire is to reach out to my brothers and sisters, the 1.9 billion Muslims who have not tasted the freedom in God, and see them receive His amazing love!”

A loving God is calling Muslims to Him. We are at the middle of Ramadan, and because they sacrifice during the day with no food or water, they become weary. Today we declare to Muslims, “Rise up from your weariness to God’s true call on your life! Receive the salvation of the Lord today!”
