Muslim Author Finds the True God

Chick Publications said There are an estimated 6 million Muslims in the U.S. They are here for a variety of reasons but they have one thing in common. They are all deceived by their religion. Mohammad Al Ghazoli, in his newly released book, Christ, Muhammad and I, writes: “I am someone at whose door a brother knocked and said, ‘have you read the Qur’an and Muhammad’s sayings (Al Hadith) in depth? After reading, I was stricken with a severe intellectual headache…” For ten years he wandered, giving up on the religion of his family. But he still felt that there had to be a God somewhere.
There is. A true God who wants people to be kind to all of his creations, not kill them if they have a slightly different opinion of religion.
“While I was lost as far as the Islamic religion is concerned,” he says, “a born-again Christian put a Bible in my hands, and said ‘Read.’” He opened the Bible haphazardly and his eyes fell on Matt 11:28: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” This teaching was so different from what he had been taught in Islam. Captivated, he read more. “Love your enemies…bless them that despitefully use you…do good to them that hate you.”
Isn't that better than Translation of Sahih Muslim, Book 19: The Book of Jihad and Expedition (Kitab Al-Jihad wa'l-Siyar) 19:4294 which says Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war .... If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. [A special tax that Jews and Christians must pay to live in a Muslim country. Followers of other religions are just killed outright if they refuse to convert to Islam.] If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them. [i.e. they must convert to Islam, pay a special very high tax so they can live as second class citizens, or die.]
All of his life he had prayed the standard Muslim prayer to be led in the right path—the right way. When Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth and the life,” Ghazoli responded: “Yes, He is the way, and I surrendered my soul to the Lord Jesus Christ, and, behold, everything changed. It seemed as though I entered a different valley—a green, wonderful valley. How beautiful it is for the soul to surrender to its God and Lord, Jesus Christ.”
