Phoenix Seminary graduate Al Fadi was born a proud son of Saudia Arabia. He felt privileged to be raised in the center of Islam. By the age of fifteen, he set out to train for jihad with the goal of joining Osama bin Laden’s ‘fighters for god’ and ultimately giving his life to promote Islam, so that he could assure his entrance into heaven.
God had a different plan for Al Fadi – one that brought him to the United States and an encounter with Jesus Christ.
“I looked at the Quran, compared it to the Bible. I looked at the person of Christ, and after six months I fell in love with this Jesus. I could not resist the compelling evidence…The God of the Bible loved me and sent His Son to die for me. The god of the Quran never did that for me. The Holy Spirit just gave me the courage to get down on my knees and pray, and ask Him to become my Lord and Savior.”
Now, Al Fadi is on a new mission. Equipped with a Master’s of Divinity in Biblical Communication, he is seeking to reach the Muslim world for Christ. Today, he serves as the Director of the Center for Islamic Research and Awareness. He is a recognized expert on the teaching and challenges of Islam, as well as a regular guest on numerous English and Arabic television and radio shows.
