... Muslims Respond to the Death of Nabeel Qureshi
I have to admit - I have been knocked around by Nabeel's death more than I expected. It's taking some time to work through it. And I never met him! How hard it must be for those who were close to him.
I put this entry here because, human nature being what it is, there will come a time when he will fade from my mind. But the death of such a man should not be allowed to pass by without taking the opportunity to learn as much from him as we can. All human life is valuable to God, but there are some lives that cause us to aspire to something higher and greater. Nabeel Qureshi's was such a life and it is appropriate for as many as will, to take the time to reflect on a worthwhile, fruitful & challenging life. Certainly as a follower of Jesus Nabeel's life is one of real challenge to me and I need to take the time to reflect & learn all the lessons I can from him.
Below is a 16 minute video from Dr David Wood on the various Muslim responses to Nabeel's passing. Some are kind & gracious, but unfortunately, many reflect the values of the prophet of Islam and are disparaging, cruel and vile. This is a useful study for those of us who seek the best for Muslims will they may only ever regard us with contempt & reject us. But if we seek to follow and grow to be more like Christ, then this is our avenue.
Brace yourselves for the foul language, the experience is worth it.
