I Am Sick Of Killing – ISIS Sheik Embraces Christianity


“Many Muslims look at ISIS and they look into the Koran and they say, ‘Wait a minute. If that’s Islam, I don’t want that. I don’t want to do that; I don’t want to be that.'”

On 15 February 2015, 21 Christians were beheaded by the Islamic State group, which shared the graphic footage online.

As Islamic State fighters continue to slaughter Christians and others, especially in the middle east, some of their members are reportedly having encounters with Jesus Christ.

A Middle East missionary named “Julian” says a sheik who served as a jihadist teacher for ISIS has turned to Jesus Christ because he became “sick of the killing.”

Muslim Scholar Converts to Christianity, Says Bible Has Authority Over Qur’an

The Operation Mobilization missionary shared the story with Todd Nettleton on the Voice of the Martyrs radio show. Julian said the sheik was traveling home from Lebanon when he asked a taxi driver for a Bible.

“The taxi driver knew a Christian in Beirut who was very happy to give the guy with the beard a Bible and then, ‘Sir, would you like to tell us why you’re looking for a Bible?’ And his response was ‘I’m from Saudi. I’m a sheikh,’ which means a teacher of Islam,” Julian recounted the story. “‘I’ve been in Syria teaching the ISIS fighters jihad 101,’ the theology and the practice of jihad. ‘I’m sick of the killing. There must be something better than this.'”

VOM’s Nettleton explained, “He had come to see that the violence of ISIS was not the path to peace. He was tired of it; he wanted something else, and so he was interested in having a Bible. “

The story of that Saudi sheik is the latest of several reports about jihadists either converting to Christianity, or desiring to learn more about the faith.

A growing number of former Muslims around the world report coming to Christ after having a dream or vision of Jesus. ISIS members are no exception.

For instance, Julian told of an ISIS fighter who had a vision of the cross, and then stumbled onto a Christian website. That terrorist later became a believer after meeting a Christian in Turkey.

Nettleton said he believes Julian’s accounts are credible.

“He’s a worker with decades of experience in the Middle East; he’s lived there; he speaks the language; he knows the culture, knows the people. So, it’s reputable because of his credibility and because of OM’s credibility,” Nettleton said.

“But it’s also a credible story because it’s consistent with what we’re hearing from that part of the world from our own VOM staff as well as from church leaders and other Christians there,” he added.

And just last month, a Youth with a Mission (YWAM) field worker told the story of an ISIS fighter who enjoyed killing Christians. He left Islam for Christianity after Jesus appeared to him in a dream, CBN News reported.

ISIS is also having an unintended impact on some other Middle East Muslims.

“And it’s not the effect necessarily that they want. What it is forcing Muslims to do is it is forcing them to examine their own faith,” Nettleton explained. “Many Muslims look at ISIS and they look into the Koran and they say, ‘Wait a minute. If that’s Islam, I don’t want that. I don’t want to do that; I don’t want to be that.”

  1. Glory be to God for this report. Christian in every part of the world should hold on the faith. sorrow may endure for a night but Joy comment in the morning. very soon Jesus will take them over. And we will reign with Him at His coming.

  2. I am really amazed to know the mighty works of Lord Jesus for heathen, especially our brotheren muslims. May all the people of this World have salvation, for God is merciful and it is my desire & prayer that let everyone come to Jesus, for He alone is truth, the way & the life. Greatly encouraged to read the testimonies and whoever reads may also experience tremondous transformation and glorify the Lord Jesus.

  3. Comment
    Amen,as a Pastor,this is good news to me and surely Glory to God for His work in Muslims.No one is too sinful to get saved.Gods grace is sufficient!

  4. Our Lord Jesus be magnified! He will yet do many more, because it is His Nature – going about doing good, no matter the cost. He is still going to the highways and hedges (where He found Paul of Tarsus, you and I) looking for all others that are ordained for eternal live, irrespective of race, religion, gender, etc. Be sure not to miss your day of visitation, because some (Jesus’ own nationals) missed it in time past, and blindness in part came upon them until now.
    But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. Hebrews 3:6‭-‬12 KJV

  5. To God be the glory for the good news. Let us continue to pray for the conversion of souls in our world. God can appear to them in the vision and dreams of the night. John 6:44

  6. I blessed the name of our Great God of wonders for these cheering news coming from predominantly Moslem community. So that non will have any excuse for going to that place of horror call hell.
