Read his awesome testimony here:
I’m Sajir by name, but I am also known by the name Shakir. I’m from Kannur (North Kerala), South India, I’m a former Muslim priest and now a full time committed faithful servant of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I was born on 01.01.1985. Born and brought up in a well committed Sunni and cultured family. We are five siblings, 4 boys and a girl, I’m the second one of them.
My father passed away last 15 years ago, mother is a housewife.
I’m a postgraduate student of a well-known Arabic college and the Islamic University of India called Jamia Nizamia Islamic Arabic college, at Charminar Hyderabad, South India.
I graduated and became an official Imam in June 2010. I worked in a Mosque as an Imam, in Malhar al deen da’awate Islam Arabic college and Mosque.
I studied in the Arabic college for 11 (eleven) years. From the age of 14 till 25. Now I’m 30 years old.
I have worked as Imam for a few months in Malhar Deen Al Islam Arabic college and Mosque, in Manjeshwar, Karargode district, South Kerala.
I had a special ministry also while I was in a certain Mosque i.e. to work among Christians and teach them, Islam, to convert them into it. That’s the reason I began to read the entire Bible and also started reading Islam and Christianity comparative studies books.
Later I found the truth that Jesus has been crucified and died and rose from the grave on the third day. I met a person called Rev K.K. Alavi, from Northern Kerala, who is a former Muslim and now a born-again Christian.
I met him in the month October 2010. My intention was to meet him to force him for reverting to Islam. The knowledge which I obtained from him really encouraged me to know Christ more.
I have found the truth and accepted Christ as my personal savior and Lord and I got saved on 10th January 2011. Also, I went to SIBBC Bible college for Biblical studies, I was there in SIBBC only for a year.
I have been baptized through Rev Cheriyan at SIBBC, Coimbatore on August 19th of 2011 in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit before a number of born-again believers. Furthermore, in June 2012, I joined the MA program at SAIACS Bible college, Kothanure, Bangalore.
I could not complete my studies at SAIACS for I did not have any sponsors to support me financially. I have started full-time ministry since March 2013 in various states of India and other few countries.
Jesus has paid the penalty of my sin and set a place for me in heaven. I thank and praise Jesus, for He has brought me out of darkness to the Eternal Light. I am seated in the Heavenly realms with the Lord Jesus Christ, Ephesians 2:6.
I praise God for He is using me for His Glory…!. Now I’m not with my own family instead, our Awesome God has blessed me by gifting me many families in Christ. I’m enjoying my life with the LORD always.
I have brought many souls to the right path through my testimony. Christian faith is lovely and amazing. It is an intimate relationship with the Lovely God, and we cannot compare Christianity with any other religions of the earth. Christian faith is pure.
