Free Audiobook: ‘Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus’ by Nabeel Qureshi

Historically, Islamic doctrine reveres Jesus as a prophet but denies that He

  1. was the Son of God
  2. claimed to be divine, or
  3. even died on the cross (let alone be raised to life).

To claim that Allah somehow became human (e.g., believing that Jesus is God) is the utmost blasphemy — the unforgivable sin of shirk (Surah 5.72).1

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus takes readers on the captivating spiritual journey of a devout Muslim apologist, the late Nabeel Qureshi (M.D.) — a former critic who became a Christian apologist after examining the evidence critically.

Reading Qureshi’s book was not only incredibly informative concerning responses to common Islamic counterclaims (e.g., “the Bible has been corrupted”, etc.), but also concerning the incredibly high stakes for almost any Muslim who converts.

This book gave me a greater understanding of Islam and greater empathy for Muslims. I was literally in tears at the conclusion of his story…2
