Usama Dakdok was born in Egypt and grew up in a Christian home.Through his education in a government school he learned about Islam, like every other student in a Muslim country. He came to America in 1992, and upon finding out that there were many Muslims here, he decided to embark upon a ministry to those individuals.

As we approach Good Friday, Vic thought it would be appropriate to have Usama share his thoughts regarding how Muslims feel about Jesus. As Usama explains, Muslims don’t believe Jesus died on the Cross. They believe Jesus was a great prophet, but as a prophet, Allah would not allow him to be killed by the Jews.

According to Usama, 87% of Muslims haven’t read the Koran, therefore when witnessing to them, they may say they believe certain things that they claim are in the Koran when in fact, they aren’t. In response he has taken the Koran and translated it into English for Christians to use in their efforts to witness to Muslims.
