My name is Muhammadu J.adu Bello. I am the firstborn of Shehu Ibrahima Bello Adua (the chief imam of Aduani Central mosque, number 51 Osedi Road, Kano). I am a Fulani by tribe, and my mother is a Yoruba from Osogbo. I am the acting Chief Imam of Adua Central Mosque, by grace of Allah. I will become the next chief imam of the central mosque.
This is my encounter and testimony with the Lord Jesus Christ. I never believed Jesus or Christians; in fact, I hate Christians because I have been taught from childhood that Christians changed the gospel of Jesus Christ. If they had left it the way it was, everybody would have been a Muslim, so for this reason, I hate Christians. I don’t kill them, but I have nothing to do with them. I used to buy Bibles from gates, confess before a man of God before tearing the Bible.
Until recently, precisely on Monday, about 3:45 a.m., when I had an encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ.That was the 23rd of the Islamic calendar (25) of Ramadan, April 2019. I was praying and leading the people in the mosque, my uncle was present with 2 elders of the mosque with 7other members of the mosque located at Jumani Central mosque in Makurdi number 51 on the road leading to market. It is the biggest Mosque there just opposite Methodist.I was reading the first chapter of the Quran called “becuase it summarizes the whole 6620 verses in the quran”. When I got to verse 4 of the quran ( man reciting it in Arabic )allof a sudden a light from nowhere appeared very brightly that it filled the whole mosque. I have never seen such light because its brighter than the Sun.
The bright light was not bringing heat but rather cold because I could feel it on my feet even though the mosque was not equipped with air conditioning and the few fans present were not even put on. Right in the brightness of the light, the voice of a man spoke out to me. The voice spoke to me in Arabic, saying, “I should come out of them. ” The voice told me that I should come out of the Islamic religion, but I replied to the voice by asking who he was. I also told the voice that Islam is the right religion. The voice replied that Islam is not the right religion, and his mission is to bring me to the right part. He said he is the truth and light. I quickly replied that it was not possible because the voice was claiming to be Anobi Isa.
I said that if you truly are Jesus, Jesus cannot be the way, the truth, and the light; instead, Muhammed is the way. The voice said it’s a lie and that I should listen to him. That time has come; he wants to save me and use me as a platform of glory to deliver my Muslim brothers from the darkness of Islam to the light of the gospel. I replied to the voice, saying it’s a lie and that if truly the voice is Jesus, he should make himself visible; I want to see him.
The voice replied, saying I am not qualified to hear him, let alone see him. I replied, but people saw you, Jesus, when you were growing up. The voice said that was when I was not glorified, but now I am glorified, which makes me not qualified to see him. I replied, but I’m a righteous man. I fast every Friday and Monday, I am a Sunni Muslim ( most holy sect of the 73 sects in Islam), I don’t fornicate, and I give part of my salary to the poor every month. The voice said he could see that I was dedicated and committed, which is why I want to save you.
I said to the voice, if you are Anobi Isa, you should know that I am knowledgeable because my argument is based on the Quran, and you should also tell me what I used to ask God when I pray. I was amazed and flabbergasted when he told me all the things I have been saying to Almighty Allah for the past 10 years. Then I remembered that the Quran says it’s only God that knows the secret things in the hearts of men, but this Jesus knows the secret things of my heart. I am sorry, I want to believe JESUS CHRIST is GOD
I remember he saying that unless I am born again, I cannot see the kingdom of God. I said that that was a lie, and I’m not stupid. I am literate both academically and quranically. I studied in Accra, Ghana, and spent 15 years in Qatar to study the Quran (the interpretation and memorization of the Quran). What I said is nonsense, and it’s not possible to be born again. He said I should find out from the Christians what it means to be born again.
After this scene and everything had settled, I asked my uncle and the elders of the mosque if they saw any bright light (they are my witnesses). They said yes but did not hear any sound. I told them all that happened. I was instead told that the voice I heard was a demon and wanted to stop me from being ordained the chief imam of the central mosque, which was scheduled to happen soonest.
