Why Did Muslim Leaders Want Her Dead?

Mariam Ibraheem had a ‘fatwa’ issued by the top Islamic leaders in Sudan, demanding that she be killed for refusing to deny Jesus and accept Islam.

Mariam was born to a Muslim father in Sudan and by law she was expected to be Muslim. When the authorities found out that she was a Christian, they demanded that she accept Islam. When she refused, she was sent to prison with her infant son, beaten while pregnant, forced to undergo female genital mutilation, sentenced to 100 public lashes and death by hanging.


Mariam’s story is a powerful testimony of a courageous young mother who was willing to face death rather than deny her faith. Mariam fearlessly stood against the powers of Islam in Sudan and saw the miraculous hand of God move.

Mariam will be speaking in Dallas, Texas, on October 22-23 at the BTJ VOICES OF THE PERSECUTED CONFERENCE. This is an intimate event with only a few tickets available. Meet and spend time with Mariam, as well as Brother Yun and Isaac Liu from China, Naghmeh Panahi from Iran, and Esther from North Korea, as they share about lessons they learned while walking through persecution.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
