Despite being diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer, Nabeel Qureshi, a Christian apologist who converted from Islam, spoke this last weekend at a suburban Chicago church. Well, kind of. Since he couldn’t be at the church in person, Jim Nicodem, senior pastor of Christ Community Church in St. Charles, IL, went to visit Nabeel at his home. The result is a powerful 45-minute, taped interview where Nabeel talks openly about his current situation and about his journey to faith. By listening, not only will you better understand Islam and your Muslim neighbors, you also will gain a better understanding of the Trinity and the Christian faith. Watch and share — and please remember to pray for Nabeel’s healing.
Followers of my blog will probably recognize Nabeel for his appearances here and on my podcast:

1 thought on “Nabeel Qureshi Speaks About His Cancer Diagnosis and Journey from Islam to Christianity”
To begin with, Nabeel Qureshi was not a Muslim he was a Qadiani, or otherwise known as the Ahmadiyya, a deviant sect that only began in the late 19th century. The Qadianis have been consistently denounced by mainstream Islam as heterodox for their belief that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a Prophet and the promised Messiah. He never once addressed the issue of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. How can someone be a Muslim when they did not believe Muhammad was the last Prophet. He knew he had to promote himself as “ex-Muslim” or “former Muslim” to gain popularity and money from Christians.
