[COMMENT: Are "moderate" Muslims outraged? Are there no effective moderate Muslims? If the moderates will not stand up at the cost of their lives, then they are not moderate at all. They are Trojan Horses for the radicals to enter other societies -- like our own. Muslims attribute to God criminal intent and activity, which justifies their own criminal intent and activity. That is blasphemy, not worship. We must challenge them on the moral failure of their view of God.
Praise be to God for this wonderful testimony of a young woman who must have known that she would be killed for her faith in Jesus. Praise God that her brother left her in her room locked up -- long enough for her to put her final letter on the internet. See poem below -- which must have been on the internet also.
Pray to God that we Western Christians everywhere come to have the kind of faith and faithfulness which Fatima Al-Mutairi had. That a young woman could come to this kind of faith mainly over the internet is a testimony to the power of the Holy Spirit. Deo Gratia. E. Fox]
In August, Fatima Al-Mutairi, the 26-year-old daughter of a Muslim cleric, was brutally killed by her brother in Buraydah, Saudi Arabia, after she proclaimed her faith to her family. The Voice of the Martyrs contacts report Fatima’s fellowship with other believers was mainly limited to Internet forums and phone correspondence. "As part of her testimony to the family, she proclaimed that the way of Christ is the most pure and most holy way of all. After sharing with her family, she found her brother in her room with her laptop open before him," VOM contacts said. "Her laptop contained notes about her spiritual journey, which he was searching in order to find more evidence against her. Her brother locked her in the room for four hours, during which time she wrote a final letter on the Internet. Fatima was killed soon thereafter," VOM contacts added.
Prior to her martyrdom Fatima wrote a poem that shows her love for Christ and her desire to share His love with her family.
And We For the Sake of Christ All Things Bear
A poem written by Fatima Al-Mutairi before her martyrdom
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
For more around the world, this time Hindus killing Christians --
The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.
