Muslim man sets out to kill Christian convert cousin — but something incredible happens instead

A story of redemption

A Muslim man in Egypt set out to kill his cousin who had reportedly converted to Christianity — but the man's life was changed once he saw the way his cousin was living his life through the salvation of Jesus Christ.

What are the details?

As reported by Open Doors USA, the family of "Mostafa" ordered him to venture out of his small Egypt village and into Cairo in order to kill his Christian convert cousin, "Mohammed."

When Mostafa reached the city, he snuck into the Christian church where his cousin was worshipping.

However, instead of being filled with rage at his cousin's renouncing of the Islamic faith and his conversion to Christianity, Mostafa found himself filled with peace and wonder while he listened to the moving prayers and songs of the service.

Mostafa approached Mohammed when the service ended — but to learn more about Christianity, and not to raise a hand against his cousin in violence.

"I came all the way from our family's village to spy on you and see if you had indeed become a Christian," Mostafa said as he began to weep. "I should inform your family about what I saw, but I just can't. I think the choice you made might have been the right one. Can you tell me more? Why did you leave Islam for Christianity?"

Mohammed graciously took Mostafa back to his home, where the two men discussed the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

That very night, Mostafa dreamed of Jesus on the cross, imploring him to turn away from sin.

"I did all of this because I love you, and I want you to be free from your sins," Mostafa said Jesus told him in the dream.

When Mostafa awoke the following morning, he told his cousin what he'd seen — and then the two men began praying fervently for Mohammed's salvation.

"I planned to kill my cousin, Your follower," Mostafa screamed. "But now I am prepared to give my life for You myself!"

Mostafa was baptized the next month.
