Nabeel Qureshi, famous Christian evangelist and author, tragically passed away in September of this year at only 34 years old. Nabeel was best known for sharing his beautiful journey about converting from Islam to Christianity.
In his quest of seeking Allah and studying the Muslim religion, he was eventually drawn to Jesus. His book, “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus,” highlighted his story of conversion and became a New York Times Bestseller. Additionally, he served God by writing other Christian books and publicly discussing his faith in various media appearances.
Years after his conversion, Nabeel was diagnosed with rare a form of stage 4 stomach cancer on August 24th, 2016. The troubling news came on the exact same day that he was saved 11 years prior.
After more than one year of fighting for his life, while continuing to serve God in his greatest struggles, Nabeel died as a result of his cancer. His wife, Michelle, has of course been grieving these past few weeks, but as a woman of strong faith, she is committed to continuing her husband’s ministry.
In a YouTube video which has been viewed over 40,000 times, Michelle poured her heart out to the world. She was very transparent, revealing that she misses Nabeel dearly, but is also very overwhelmed with taking on the responsibilities her husband once had.
Ultimately, she’s very happy that her husband is finally at peace and doesn’t have to carry these struggles with him to Heaven. She joked, “Nabeel totally got the good end of the deal on this one,” reminding her followers that there’s no worries or bad concepts in Heaven.
Michelle ended the video with assuring her commitment to continuing Nabeel’s ministry, “I don’t know exactly what that’s going to look like, but I do know that we will take his resources and put those online in video form and share them through social media and websites he had open previously.”
Regardless, first and foremost, her responsibilities as a mother to their daughter Ayah comes first. She also invited others in the community to partner with their ministry if they feel it is a part of God’s Will.
