Mustafa grew up in a very religious family in Morocco. He was very passionate about his Islamic faith because he wanted to grow closer to God. Because he had a beautiful voice, he would often lead the prayers in the mosque. But the deeper he went into his faith, the more disconnected he felt from God.
“I was leading and helping other people come to worship, but all I was finding was an emptiness in my life. There was a huge chasm between me and the one I was trying to worship.”
He started to question whether he was worshipping the true God.
In his search for answers, Mustafa began watching YouTube videos about inconsistencies and mistakes found in the Qur’an. He felt as if the scales had fallen from his eyes and that he was finally seeing things clearly.
“Once you look at these videos, if you’re a reasonable person, you cannot deny them. Just look at Islam and see.”
When he came to the realisation that Islam was not true, he felt freedom. He decided that he still believed in God, but that he didn’t follow any religion.
One day, while online, he came across one of Arab World Media’s ads and followed it to their website. He requested online contact and quickly got involved in long debates and discussions with two of the digital responders. He had lots of questions. The team answered them as best they could, helping him to understand, and pointing him towards the truth. During this time, he was also searching for answers in Hinduism. He felt like both Christianity and Hinduism were calling to him, and that both were about peace.
Eventually, however, he came to the conclusion that Christianity, not Hinduism, held the truth. After more time studying and praying, he accepted Christ to be his Saviour. He was recently baptised along with 18 other new believers.
