When a man prayed that God would reveal Himself, he didn’t expect that his entire Muslim family would encounter Jesus in a single night.
A Muslim Family
Amin shared how a simple question, “Why does Allah need me to pray in Arabic if he is God?,” led him to ask God to reveal Himself—a prayer that led to an amazing chain of events.
He grew up in Iran and was born into a Muslim family that faithfully served Allah. They followed the religious practices and Amin prayed at least five times every day. He was doing it out of fear. He said that “behind the spirit of Islam is the spirit of fear.”
But when he was 17 years old, his journey with Jesus started.
Muslims pray in Arabic because Allah is an Arab, and for some reason this didn’t sit well with Amin.
Jesus Appears To The Entire Muslim Family
One day, when Amin was bowing to pray, a question came to his mind: “Why [is] God asking me to talk to him in a language that I don’t know? If you are God, you must know that I am a Persian. If you are God, you must know that I am not an Arab. Why are you asking me to talk to you in another language? And also, you want me to repeat the same thing every day. I’d get bored if you told me the same things.”
It was a simple question that led him to ask God to reveal Himself. He said, “God, if you’re alive, show yourself to me.”
Muslim Family Dreams About Jesus
Amin stopped praying to Allah and waited for something to happen. He was waiting for God to show up. Seven days later, he had a dream.
“But not only me. My mother, my sister, and myself on the same night. We did have the same dream about Jesus Christ. I heard my mom and my sister were in the other bedroom. I ran away to them, and I said, “What’s wrong with you? Why are you crying at this time of the day?” And they said, “We had a dream about Jesus,”” Amin recalled.
He said that he had a dream about Jesus, too. They just wept.
“I don’t know for how long, but I kept crying. And I said, “God, what do you want to show us?”
“Jesus Is Not Only A Prophet”
Their family had no previous knowledge about Jesus because the Bible is not available in bookstores in Iran.
But God sent someone to give them a Bible.
One of their friends knocked on the door, and then he put a Persian Bible on the table. And he said, “I am sent by God to share this Word with you.”
Because of these two encounters and after reading God’s Word, Amin realized that Jesus was not who he thought He was.
“I want to tell you that Jesus is not only a prophet. Jesus Christ is the Word of God,” he said.
