A Muslim woman who was almost killed by her father after dishonoring his family finds Jesus Christ after hearing His audible voice from Heaven.
Former Muslim woman
Aisha shared her story of how she felt no peace in her religion and how Jesus supernaturally encountered her in CBN News’ “Soul & Stories.” She was born in Amman, Jordan to a devoted Islamic family. Her father was abusive and she constantly felt condemned by her religion.
At the age of 17, her family moved to the United States. There, she was looking for “love” and got pregnant at a very young age. She knew that what she did would dishonor to her family’s culture and that her father would be obliged to kill her. Fearing for her life, she aborted her baby. She suffered from the shame of her decision for years.
Aisha also experienced depression and suicidal thoughts. She knew that in her religion, her sins are unforgivable and that she was “hated by Allah”. While crying out to Allah for forgiveness, a supernatural thing happened, she heard an audible voice from heaving saying the name of “Jesus.” She then turned her prayers to Jesus.
“That was the first time I felt any sense of peace, was when I prayed to Jesus,” she recalled.
After years of being condemned in her religion, she found truth and forgiveness in Jesus. As she sought deeper about Him, she discovered that Jesus was full of compassion and mercy for women, contrary to what she experienced in Islam.
“You saw Jesus walk up to women with an element of tenderness, and you know, the woman at the well, the woman who had a bleeding disorder, Jesus called her ‘daughter,’ and that was huge for me to read because in Islam women aren’t regarded highly at all,” Aisha says.
