1295_270” May the Lord Jesus guide you, Oh Muslims
And enlighten your hearts that you might love others
The forum does not revile the Master of the prophets
It is for the display of truth, and for you it was revealed
This is the truth which you do not know
What we profess are the words of the Master of the prophets
We do not worship the cross, and we are not possessed
We worship the Lord Jesus, the Light of the worlds

We left Mohammed, and we do not follow in his path
We followed Jesus Christ, the Clear Truth
Truly, we love our homeland, and we are not traitors
We take pride that we are Saudi citizens
How could we betray our homeland, our dear people?
How could we, when for death – for Saudi Arabia – we stand ready?
The homeland of my grandfathers, their glories, and odes – for it I am writing
And we say, “We are proud, proud, proud to be Saudis”
We chose our way, the way of the rightly guided
And every man is free to choose any religion
Be content to leave us to ourselves to be believers in Jesus
Let us live in grace before our time comes
There are tears on my cheek, and Oh! the heart is sad
To those who become Christians, how you are so cruel!
And the Messiah says, “Blessed are the Persecuted”
And we for the sake of Christ all things bear
What is it to you that we are infidels?
You do not enter our graves, as if with us buried
Enough – your swords do not concern me, not evil nor disgrace
Your threats do not trouble me, and we are not afraid
And by God, I am unto death a Christian – Verily
I cry for what passed by, of a sad life

I was far from the Lord Jesus for many years
Oh History record! and bear witness, Oh Witnesses!
We are Christians – in the path of Christ we tread
Take from me this word, and note it well
You see, Jesus is my Lord, and He is the Best of protectors
I advise you to pity yourself, to clap your hands in mourning
See your look of ugly hatred
Man is brother to man, Oh learned ones
Where is the humanity, the love, and where are you?
As to my last words, I pray to the Lord of the worlds
Jesus the Messiah, the Light of Clear Guidance
That He change notions, and set the scales of justice aright –

And that He spread love among you, Oh Muslims.”

                                                                                            

 

 

Very beautiful letter, isn’t it?  I think if you understand the conditions under which this letter was written it may have more meaning for you.

Fatima was a 26 year old former Muslim girl who gave everything for her newfound Saviour.  In fact, she gave her very life.  When she told her family, I can only imagine with horror the events that led up to her brother cutting out her tongue.  She was then locked in her room where she wrote these last words on her laptop.  When they came to get her, it was to take her to her death, where she was burned alive.  Burned alive because she loved the Lord Jesus Christ.  The one that so many of you like to call “a fairy tale”. 

Last time I checked, nobody gave their lives for the Three Little Pigs.  Or Sleeping Beauty.  Although that is how I like to think of Fatima now, like  sleeping beauty.  However, I am romanticising there, because she is not asleep.  She is now with the Saviour, glorified and perfected for all eternity.

For all of you out there who like to leave your nasty little remarks and call us names and do all the dreadful little things you like to do, I present to you Fatima Al-Mutairi.  A martyr for the Christian Faith.    A young lady who was not afraid to give her very life for The Lord Jesus Christ.

As Jesus hung on the cross, he said “Forgive them Father, they know not what they do.”   

As Fatima awaited her death, she wrote a love letter to the very ones who were to kill her.

Do we believe in some “Sky Wizard”?

I believe that Fatima could answer that for you, but she is otherwise occupied right now.
