Kamal Saleem: A Muslim Cries Out to Jesus

He heard a voice call his name and saw a vision of Christ. This was miraculous, because up until then, Kamal was a Muslim. Read Transcript


48% OF THE MUSLIMS IN THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE

MUSLIMS FIRST AND AMERICANS

SECOND.

OUR PURPOSE IS TO CHANGE

THIS CULTURE BECAUSE THEY'RE

INFIDEL, AND WHAT THEY'RE

DOING IS NOT PLEASING TO

ALLAH, AND WE ARE THE

SOLDIER OF ALLAH, WHO WILL

MAKE THEM DO IT.

Reporter: CAMAL SALINE

WAS BORN IN LEBANON TO A

DEVOUT MUSLIM FAMILY.

HE REMEMBERS SITTING AT THE

KITCHEN TABLE WHILE HIS

MOTHER TAUGHT HIM ABOUT THE

KORAN.

SHE SAID, ONE DAY YOU WILL

DIE FOR THE STATE OF ISLAM.

SHE SAID, IF YOU KILL A JEW,

YOUR HAND WILL LIE BACK AND

THE HOST OF HEAVEN WILL

CELEBRATE WHAT YOU HAVE

DONE.

Reporter: CAMAL WAS

SEVEN WHEN HIS PARENTS SENT

HIM TO MUSLIM TRAINING CAMPS

TO LEARN TO USE WEAPONS AND

ENGAGE AND KILL THE ENEMY.

AND THEY WERE TAUGHT

ANOTHER, MORE SUBTLE FORM OF

JIHAD.

WE WERE TRAINED FOR

CULTURED JIHAD, WHICH IS

SHIFTING JIHAD.

IT IS THE JIHAD THAT WILL

COME INTO YOUR WORLD.

Reporter: BY HIS 20s,

CAMAL WAS PICKED TO PROMOTE

ISLAM.

THE LIBERTY THAT YOU HAVE

IN THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA IT IS ANTI ISLAM.

SO AMERICA MUST BE CHANGED.

SO I MOVED TO THE BIBLE BELT

SPECIFICALLY.

THE BIBLE BELT WAS THE

STRONGEST OF THE STRONGEST.

THAT'S WHERE THE ASTOUT

CHRISTIANS ARE.

AND I WANTED TO TAKE ON THE

BEST OF THE BEST.

BECAUSE I CONSIDERED MYSELF

AS THE SWORD OF ISLAM.

I THOUGHT, I'M ANOINTED, I'M

UNIQUE, I'M SELECTED.

I'M COMING TO A COUNTRY AND

A CULTURE TO CHANGE IT, AND

I HAVE THE POWER OF ALLAH

WITH ME.

Reporter: IN THE EARLY

1980s, CAMAL ENTRENCHED

HIMSELF IN A SMALL

MIDWESTERN TOWN.

AND HE BEGAN TARGETING MEN

FROM A POOR AREAS TO RECRUIT

THEM.

BUT ONE DAY HIS LIFE WOULD

BE IN THE HANDS OF THE

PEOPLE HE HATED THE MOST.

THAT DAY I HAD A CAR

WRECK.

THE CAR WRECK WAS SO SEVERE,

I EJECTED OUT OF MY CAR AND

BROKE MY NECK IN TWO

PLACES.

HIS MAN CAME RUNNING TO ME

AND HE SAID, DON'T WORRY.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF

YOU.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TOING

ALL RIGHT.

THE AMBULANCE CAME AND

PICKED ME UP.

AND THE DOCTOR IN THE

EMERGENCY ROOM SAID, SON,

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF

YOU, AND EVERYTHING IS GOING

TO BE ALL RIGHT.

THE SECOND DAY I WAKE UP IN

THE HOSPITAL, AND THIS HEAD

OF PHYSICAL THERAPY, AND HE

READ MY CHART, AND HE TURNED

AROUND AND SAID THE SAME

THING WORD FOR WORD, "WE ARE

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF YOU."

Reporter: AS FIRST

CAMAL WAS FRIELT TEND

FRIGHTENED BY THEIR WORDS.

IN ISLAM, IF SOMEBODY

SAID THEY'RE GOING TO TAKE

CARE OF YOU, YOU BETTER

RUN.

Reporter: HE HAD

SURGERY, AND AFTER BEING

DISCHARGED FROM THE

HOSPITAL, HE NEEDED SOMEONE

TO TAKE CARE OF HIM.

CAMAL HAD NO ONE.

SO THE ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

OPENED UP HIS OWN HOME TO

THIS STRANGER.

IN HIS HOME, THEY PUT ME

IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ROOM.

I BECAME, LIKE, PART OF

THEIR FAMILY.

THEY DIDN'T SEE ME ANY

DIFFERENT.

NOW THEY HAD A BASKET SENT

FOR CAMAL, AND THEY PAID MY

HOSPITAL BILLS.

Reporter: AS HE

RECOVERED, HE BEGAN TO HELP

OUT AROUND THE HOUSE WITH

COOKING AND CLEANING.

THEY HAVE JEWISH FRIENDS

THAT CAME FROM ISRAEL, THAT

THEY SUPPORT, AND NOW I'M

HUGGING ISRAELIS AND COOKING

FOR JEWS.

I'M GOING, WHAT HAS HAPPENED

TO ME.

Reporter: WHEN CAMAL

WAS ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF

HIMSELF AND RETURN TO HIS

APARTMENT, THE DOCTOR HAD

ANOTHER SURPRISE FOR HIM.

HE SAID, THIS IS THE KEYS

TO THE HOUSE.

AND HERE IS AN EXTRA KEY.

THIS IS YOUR NEW CAR.

WE JUST WANT TO BLESS YOU.

YOU CAN COME ANY TIME YOU

WANT.

SO I GO TO MY HOME, AND I GO

TO MY COLD PLACE, AND I

HAVEN'T BEEN THERE IN

MONTHS, AND DUST IS THIS

THICK.

AND I JUST GE GOT TO SETTLE

THIS ISSUE WITH MY GOD, TO

KNOW IF IT IS REAL OR NOT.

SO I WALK INSIDE.

I SHUT THE DOOR, AND I GO

RIGHT IN THE EASTERN WINDOW

AND I FALL ON NA MY KNEES,

AND I CRY TO MY GOD.

ALLAH, MY LORD AND MY KING,

WHY HAVE YOU DONE SUCH A

THING TO ME.

I'M OKAY WITH THE CAR

WRECK.

I'M OKAY WITH ALL OF THIS.

BUT WHY DID YOU PUT ME AMONG

CHRISTIANS.

I'M CONFUSED.

THESE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS,

THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH

THEM.

THEY DON'T WANT TO KILL US.

THEY'RE NOT THE SAME THING

THAT I LEARNED ABOUT THEM.

ALLAH, THESE PEOPLE HAVE

RELATIONSHIP WITH THEIR

GOD.

THESE PEOPLE, THEY CALL OUT

TO THE GOD AND THEY ANSWER

THEM.

I WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOICE.

I WANT TO HEAR YOU LOVE ME.

IF YOU'RE REAL, SPEAK TO

ME.

I WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOICE.

GUESS WHAT ALLAH SAID THAT

DAY?

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Reporter: CAMAL FELT

THAT BECAUSE HE QUESTIONED

HIS FAITH THE HONORABLE

THING TO DO WAS TO END HIS

LIFE.

SO I WENT TO REACH OUT MY

GUNS AND PUT IT IN THE RIGHT

PLACE AND CLOCK OUT.

I HEARD THE VOICE.

THE VOICE KNEW ME BY NAME.

HE SAID CAMAL, CAMAL, WHY

DON'T YOU CALL ON FATHER

ABRAHAM AND ISAAC AND

JAMES.

I FELL ON MY KNEES, AND I

CRIED OUT WITH EVERY FIBER

IN ME.

GOD, THE FATHER, ABRAHAM, IF

YOU ARE REAL, WOULD YOU

SPEAK TO ME.

GOD, THE FATHER OF ABRAHAM,

IF YOU ARE REAL, I WANT TO

KNOW YOU.

WELL, GOD THE FATHER OF

ABRAHAM FILLED THE ROOM.

HE HAS HOLES IN HIS HANDS.

HE HAS HOLES IN HIS FEET.

HIS NAME IS JESUS.

I SAID TO HIM, WHO ARE YOU,

MY LORD?

WHO YOU ARE?

HE SAID, I AM THAT I AM.

I SAID, I'M A SIMPLE MAN

WITH A SIMPLE MAN.

WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO ME?

HE SAID I AM THE ALPHA, I

AM THE OMEGA, I AM THE

BEGINNING, I AM THE END.

AND I AM EVERYTHING IN

BETWEEN.

I HAVE FORMED YOU.

I HAVE LOVED YOU BEFORE I

FORMED YOU IN YOUR MOTHER'S

WOMB.

RISE UP, CAMAL.

RISE UP.

YOU ARE MY WARRIOR.

YOU ARE NOT THEIR WARRIOR.

I SAID TO HIM, MY LORD, I

WILL LIVE AND DIE FOR YOU.

HE SAID, DO NOT DIE FOR ME.

I DIED FOR YOU SO THAT YOU

MAY LIVE.

Reporter: THAT DAY

INSTEAD OF TAKING HIS LIFE,

CAMAL GAVE IT TO JESUS.

HE NOW HAS A NEW MISSION AND

TRAVELS THE COUNTRY,

CHALLENGING MUSLIMS TO

QUESTION THEIR ALLEGIANCE TO

ALLAH.

MY HEART'S DESIRE IS TO

REACH OUT TO MY BROTHERS AND

SISTERS, THE MUSLIMS OUT

THERE, 1.5 BILLION MUSLIMS,

THEY ARE LIVING OUT THERE,

AND THEY HAVE NOT TASTED

THAT FREEDOM AND THAT

FREEDOM IN GOD.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN

20 YEARS SINCE CAMAL LEFT

THE ISLAMIC FAITH.

EVEN THREATS OF VIOLENCE AND

DEATH CANNOT STOP HIM FROM

SHARING HIS STORY.

HE IS REAL.

IF YOU NEVER EXPERIENCED GOD

BEFORE IN YOUR LIFE, IF YOU

NEVER TASTED GOD, AND IF YOU

THINK YOU'VE GOT NOTHING TO

LOSE, WHEN YOU ARE SITTING

IN YOUR HOME, WHETHER YOU'RE

A MUSLIM OR NON-MUSLIM OR

CHRISTIAN OR WHATEVER YOU

ARE, CALL ON GOD, THE FATHER

OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB, SAY

SPEAK TO ME.

I WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOICE.
