An Egyptian Iman Declares For Jesus Christ


Bahaa el-Din Ahmed Hussein el-Akkad (Arabic: بهاء الدين أحمد حسين العقاد‎; born 1949) is an Egyptian former Muslim imam. For more than 20 years, el-Akkad was a member of the fundamentalist Islamic group Da’wa el Tabligh, which actively proselytized non-Muslims but strictly opposed violence.

He also led a mosque community in Al-Haram, in the Giza area adjacent to Cairo. In 1994, he published, Islam: the Religion, a 500-page book reviewing the traditional beliefs and dogmas of Islam.

Bahaa later became disillusioned with Islam and began to question certain Islamic tenets. A theological discourse with a Christian led him to conduct an intensive study of Christian Scripture, after which he converted to Christianity in January 2005.

On 6 April 2005, el-Akkad was arrested by the State Security Intelligence (SSI) on suspicion of blasphemy against Islam. He was accused of “insulting a heavenly religion,” a misdemeanor under Article 98-F of the Egyptian penal code.

Although his release by a court in Cairo on 30 July 2006 was issued, the SSI deliberately ignored this decision and transferred el-Akkad to the maximum security Wadi el-Natroun Prison, where the majority of Egyptian Islamists sentenced for anti-government activities are incarcerated. He was finally released from prison on 28 April 2007, after having been held without charges for two years.
