Nabeel Qureshi, famous Christian evangelist and author, tragically passed away on Saturday, September 16th 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. This heartbreaking news comes only days after Nabeel took to his video blog to request prayers; doctors said he was entering his “final stages in life” and stopped cancer treatments.
His death was confirmed by Christian leaders and others close to Nabeel on social media. He will be greatly missed by his beloved wife and children.
In his last days of life, Nabeel continuously expressed the importance of trusting God’s will. As Christians, we know that God works all things out for our good (Romans 8:28), all things, even things that are hard for us to comprehend on earth.
