Nabeel Qureshi, ex-Muslim turned Christian apologist, died in 2017 after a year-long battle with stomach cancer. The 34-year-old left behind a wife and two-year-old daughter.
Qureshi published three books, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity, and Answering Jihad: A Better Way Forward, and No God but One: Allah or Jesus? A Former Muslim Investigates the Evidence for Islam and Christianity.
Qureshi made the official announcement of his cancer diagnosis August 2016.
“This is an announcement that I never expected to make, but God in his infinite and sovereign wisdom has chosen me for this refining, and I pray he will be glorified through my body and my spirit. My family and I have received the news that I had advanced stomach cancer and the prognosis is quite grim,” he said in a Facebook post.
Qureshi continued to share the gospel and updates on his treatment through videos on his social media page.
In the last video before his death, he said he hoped he leaves behind a legacy of love.
“As you consider my ministry, I hope it leaves a message of love, of peace, of truth, of caring for one another,” he says. “Our God is a God of love.”
David Wood’s best friend at college was Nabeel Qureshi, a Muslim. Initially, David did not know much about the Muslim faith but over four years and considerable research into the Quran and even some Hadiths as a result of discussions with Nabeel, David become sufficiently knowledgeable that he was able to convince Nabeel that Jesus was who He said He was, the Son of God and that Jesus mission on earth was to provide atonement for mankind’s sin with His own death on The Cross. Nabeel not only became a Christian but went on to write two best selling books: Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus and No God but One: Allah or Jesus?
This is the most amazing testimony I have ever heard. You have to listen to listen to this interview. It will show you that God is at work in all of us regardless of who we are and what we have done.

David was used by God over a four year period to bring former Muslim Nabeel Qureshi into His Kingdom. Nabeel is the author of the New York Times bestselling No God but One: Allah or Jesus?, the follow-up to his bestseller Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, the only book ever to win Christian Book Awards for both “Best New Author” and “Best Nonfiction.”
Two men that have both gone to be with their Lord and Saviour. One of them from an Anglican family in a Hindu culture, the other from a Muslim family. One is Indian, the other Pakistani. The world would have them to be enemies, but Jesus Christ made them brothers.

Whether we live to be 34 like Nabeel or 74 like Ravi, may we fight the good fight, keep the faith and finish the race as they have done! Brothers who ministered powerfully together and testified of the One who gave them new life, eternal life. Both remained steadfast in their suffering with cancer. And as of today both are now in the presence of Jesus, together once again! I praise God for the lives and testimonies of these two men. Many are in the Kingdom of God because of their efforts. I for one, have been blessed by many of Ravi’s dissertations. Heavens gain is our loss.
