Muslims in Media Statistics

Al-Jazeerah: 6 Million Muslims convert to Christianity in Africa alone each year

According to Al-Jazeerah’s interview with Sheikh Ahmad Al Katani, the president of The Companions Lighthouse for the Science of Islamic Law in Libya, In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity.

Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Every year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity in Africa alone so you can imagine the worldwide numbers. How many others of them convert to Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism or just plain atheism? MILLIONS.

After reporting this Al-Jazeerah has since removed the interview and details but we got the screencap from the original story.

.

Islam, SVM News, 1 January, 2007: Millions of Muslim converts to Christianity celebrated Christmas throughout the world. According the reports of the various missionary organizations and news medias.
.
The Salem Voice Ministries evangelizing Muslims in  India and many other Muslim nations. There are about 500 evangelists  ministering among Muslims  in different African, Middle East and Asian countries. A vast number of Muslims finding the truth and attaining Salvation of Jesus Christ day by day.
.
‘More Muslims converted to faith in Jesus Christ over the past decade than at any other time in human history. A spiritual revolution is underway throughout North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia. As a result, a record number of ex-Muslims are celebrating Christmas this year, despite intense persecution, assassinations, and widespread church bombings’. These are the words of Joel C. Rosenberg, the author of the New York Times best selling political thriller.
.
He said, he and his wife and kids were lived in the Mideast for three months. During that time, he had the privilege of interviewing more than three dozen Arab and Iranian pastors and evangelical leaders throughout the region. The picture they paint is one of Christianity being dramatically resurrected in the region of its birth.
.
More than 10,000 Muslims accepted Jesus Christ as their personal saviour throughout India during the last year. The Bible Society of India publishing thousands of New Testaments for the Muslims with their own terminology and vocabulary in different Indian languages and Tazi language. Pastor Paul Ciniraj Mohamed, the Director of the Salem Voice Ministries is one of the key persons of the Bible translators of the Bible Society of India to reach the Gospel to the Muslims. He is in the midst of persecution. Recently also he was threatened by the extremists to count down his days along with the whole family.
.
In Iraq, more than 5,000 Muslim converts to Christianity have been identified since the end of major combat operations, with 14 new churches opened in Baghdad, and dozens of new churches opened in Kurdistan, some of which have 500 to 800 members. Also, more than one million Bibles shipped into the country since 2003, and pastors report Iraqis are snatching them up so fast they constantly need more Bibles.
.
Thousands of Muslims turned to Christ and worshiping Lord Jesus in Morocco, Somalia, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Maldives.
.
Around a million believed in Jesus over the past decade in Egypt. The Egyptian Bible Society used to sell about 3,000 copies of the JESUS film a year in the early 1990s. As per the figures taken from the Millennium campaign in 2000, they sold 600,000 copies, plus 750,000 copies of the individual cassette tapes (in Arabic) and about a half million copies of the Arabic New Testament. Ramez Atallah, the General Secretary of the Bible Society of Egypt informed Pastor Paul Ciniraj by email. “Egyptians are increasingly hungry for God’s Word,” he said.
.
‘Last Christmas, I had the privilege of visiting the largest Christian congregation in the Middle East, which meets in an enormous cave on the outskirts of Cairo. Some 10,000 believers worship there every weekend. A prayer conference the church held in May 2005 drew some 20,000 believers’, Rosenberg told.
.
There were only 17 Christians from Islam in Afghanistan on 2001. But there are more than 10,000 believers at present. Every week dozens of baptisms being held there.
.
In 1990, there were only three known Christians in Kazakhstan and no Christians in Uzbekistan, but now more than 15,000 in Kazakhstan and 30, 000 in Uzbekistan. There were only 500 Christians in Iran on 1979, but more than one million Iranians believing Jesus Christ today, most of whom meet in underground house churches.
.
In Sudan, more than one million have converted since 2000, and some 5 million have become Christians since the early 1990s, despite a radical Islamic regime and an on-going genocide that has killed more than 200,000. Seminaries are being held in caves to train pastors to shepherd the huge numbers of people coming to Christ. Why such a dramatic spiritual awakening? “People have seen real Islam, and they want Jesus instead,” one Sudanese evangelical leader said.
.
In December 2001, Sheikh Ahmad al Qataani, a leading Saudi cleric, appeared on a live interview on Al-Jazeera satellite television to confirm that, sure enough, Muslims were turning to Jesus in alarming numbers. “In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity,” Al Qataani warned. “Every day, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Every year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity.”
.
Stunned, the interviewer interrupted the cleric. “Hold on! Let me clarify. Do we have six million converting from Islam to Christianity?” Al Qataani repeated his assertion. “Every year,” the cleric confirmed, adding, “a tragedy has happened.”
.
One of the most dramatic developments is that many Muslims — including Shiites in Iran and Iraq — are seeing dreams and visions of Jesus and thus coming into churches explaining that they have already converted and now need a Bible and guidance on how to follow Jesus. This is the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy of Joel, “in the last days, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days….And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.” (Joel 2:28-32).
.
Within few years all of the Muslim nations will come to Christ by the work of the Holy Spirit. Satan knows it, that’s why he tries to discourage and destroy the Christian workers and the believers through the persecution and brutal murdering. But our Lord Jesus will have the final victory. Pastor Paul Ciniraj said.
.
Idris Salahudeen, the Pastor of the Salem Voice Ministries said, hundreds upon hundreds ordinary Muslims believing Jesus and secretly converting into Christianity by seeing brutal behaviour of fundamentalists towards Christians. Maybe this torturing is a purification of nominal Christians to have more faith and courage.

  5. The fruit of Islam and its false prophet is being laid bare for all to see, How can any human being continue to be duped by it is beyond me. May the power of the Holy Spirit working through courageous pastors and laypeople continue to bring more of these people to Jesus, the way, the truth and the life. Beautiful.

I grantee there is no ordination certificate or any legal paper signed by any government official in Egypt he can bring-and he is not Bishop nevery ordained by the Coptic church!! This is a game from AlJazera channel to cover the news regarding Muslims converts in Africa. Sham!on Aljazera News!! Any way the Qur’an teaching them to lie to advance the Islam (Taqua)

      • Maybe you need to know Islam first. Muhammad (pbuh)a is not the only Prophet in Islam. Jesus, moses Abraham etc, these too are our prophets (pbut). That shows the sincerity of our beloved prophet(pbuh) . When he talks , he talks facts that is what is expected of a Prophet. He could have chosen his daughter, Mother, wife as the chosen women above all nations. He didn’t. He had no choice and so it was Mary the mother of Jesus .you might Wana read chapter MARY in Quran. If he was a lair(nouzbillah) He would have told people he would come back. But he dint. He said the Truth for he was truthful. Jesus (pbuh) in has to rule this world. That’s was the prophecy for the Messiah was supposed to fulfil which is why even Jesus (pbuh) is regarded as imposter by Jews coz the Messiah prophecy remained unfilled. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) makes it clear to muslims that he will come to fulfill the his prophecy, that Jesus our Prophet, will come back, fill the world with justice, set his throne in Jerusalem, remove cross out of Christianity (in other words salvation thru crucifixion doctrine will be abolished as it was never true). May Allah make me serve him and make me clean the dust of the feet of our beloved prophet Jesus (pbuh). But you know what.. Thus whole article is an example of ur blindness. You won’t be able to see. Anyways, Thanx for promoting Islam. That’s what the videos above are doing.

Says in Bible in Jeremiah 29:23 “You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart” Start having a look at what God said in the Word of God, Gospel of Matthew is a good place to start. I’m not sure what you want to convert from and to, but as a Christian, I would recommend going to a Church (which is alive), and also reading Bible with people from there and chatting with them.

  12. The videos.. One saying muslims becoming Christians.. It’s a recording.. Claimed to be from aljazeera. The second video which as we can see is from aljazera,it is a video and not a recording. it shows a coptic Christian scholar bishop Maximus acknowledging Islam growing fast and shattering christianity into pieces. Even proving evidence. I think any wise man between these two videos above can figure facts out of trash.

    • Religion, unlike politics is not about numbers but the truth. Therefore, a seeming majority may be swimming in the wrong direction unless they know the truth. So I think the argument should be more about eliciting the truth rather than numbers which are like shifting sand. In any case, it doesnt matter how many Christians or Muslims there. In the end everyone will be judged according to their deeds here on earth. However, if Islam drops it’s sword and stance against apostasy, we may see a more level ground. That is if numbers would make any difference.

  17. Do you think Jesus would lie? If know then believe in what he said in John 14:6 “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

    And why was this only prophet jesus (according to muslims) born in this world without sin(human intervention). why did he perform miracles? and why was he raised to heaven without death (as per quran, jesus was raised by angels and some other apostle took his place)

    And why do you think someone who was messenger of god, he believed in god and his power, but afraid to die on the cross? (as per quran he requested his fellow apostles to replace him)

    And why does some one who has reached heaven needs to come back and live the rest of the life to die one day?

    Why do you think god gave him power enough to give life to someone who is dead? but he didnt give this power to adam, moses, abraham and all the others in line.

    Do you think god is not mighty enough to calm some one who is blaspheming or claiming himself deity status if it wasn’t god’s will?

    Why does this child born in 2 days speak about him how he came into this earth?

    Why did jesus didn’t have wife and kids if he was a prophet like others?

    why do you think the christians belief jesus died for them on the cross?

    Probably everyone should try to find answer for these questions and then find more to understand what are all possibilities of truth.

    We all love god and that’s the reason we are arguing or debating.

    All the places i have read or heard, a muslim always speaks that we are servant of god. but in bible i only see that we are children of god. No master loves his servants as a father loves his children. Jesus was the bridge between the father and you. God was so loving that he gave himself (jesus) for all our sins. Because death is the only punishment for sin. God wanted all of us to give the forgiveness but some had to take the punishment and Jesus was the one who took it for all of us. That’s what a christian believe.
