Video Shows Muslims Seeking to Convert Africans to Islam: ‘Jesus Is the Slave of Allah’

Campaign-compressedA video compilation released by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) appears to show Muslims seeking to convert Africans to Islam, asking them to repeat the words, “Jesus is the slave of Allah and Mohammed.”

According to the organization, Egyptian cleric Wahid Abd Al-Salam Bali has been leading the efforts in Africa, traveling to predominantly Christian areas of Malawi, Uganda, Tanzania and Ghana. Bali claims to have converted over 4,000 people within a seven-day period in Malawi.

The video footage of various Muslims engaged in Islamization activities shows men altering the recitation of what is called the shahada, which is the Islamic creed. In addition to the customary, “I attest that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is his messenger,” the men seem to customize the declaration for Christians to renounce their faith.

“I bear witness that Jesus is the slave of Allah and his messenger,” the video repeatedly shows clerics asking professing Christians to repeat.

Moments into the footage, Bali is seen leading a group of children in the chant, followed by repeated exclamations of “Allah Akbar.” He teaches the children to hold up one finger as they recite the shahada, a Muslim gesture that signifies their belief that there is none but Allah.

The video also shows a young man being instructed by an Islamic cleric to remove his cross necklace and repeat the shahada.

“You will become a Muslim. You will pray five times a day with the Muslims. You should take off the cross, because this is only for Christians,” the cleric states. “Take it off right now.”

The man then rips the necklace off his neck, raises his finger in the air and repeats the Islamic creed.

A clip in the video called “Conquering a New Village” shows a crowd of Africans being addressed by a panel of Muslims who ask, “Who among you wants to join Islam?” The majority of hands are raised in the air.

“All of you do? In that case… Wait, these two don’t want to,” the cleric states. “Who wants to join Islam? Do you want to join Islam?”

He then leads the crowds in the shahada, followed by declarations of “Allah Akbar.”

The cleric, through an interpreter speaking into a megaphone, tells the African crowd that Muslims have come to help them because of its belief that the rich should give the poor, exciting those gathered.

“It is Islam that commanded us to come here, to resolve your problems, and to help you,” he says. “Because the Prophet of the Muslims, Muhammad, peace be upon him, says that the rich should give to the poor. That is why we have come to you.”

    I don’t see the problem. I saw no guns, no force, just Moslems convincing people to become Moslems. They have every right to do that, just as Christians have every right to convince people to become Christians. Yes, ultimately those that accept Islam will go to hell, but here on earth the truth—Christianity—can only be accepted voluntarily, which means everyone must have the freedom to follow whatever religious they so choose. As long as the battle is fought with only words, the truth can and will win in the minds and hearts of all who are truly seeking it. When Moslem pick up guns, knives and bombs and try to force people to accept Islam, that’s when they’ve crossed the line and should be fought.

    • Wrong, in certain islamic country, you could be jailed or tortured or may be murdered for just saying some words.. what a BIG liar are you

      • The Skeptical Chymist

        You have correctly identified the problem. The problem is not that the Muslims are seeking converts. All religions should be free to seek converts. The problem comes when force enters the picture. If a person can freely convert to Islam, he should be able to freely convert from Islam to something else, such as Christianity or atheism. Sadly, that option is violently opposed in much of the Middle East and much of Africa. Likewise, discussion of the good and bad in a religion (or in atheism) should always be permitted without fear of being labeled a blasphemer. All these ideas should compete freely in the intellectual marketplace of ideas. That is the important step toward religious freedom that was achieved in the West, but not in much of the rest of the world.

    Islam. Filling the void once again.
    Just as ISIS has done politically and geographically after Obama pulled out of Iraq.

    And with the once Christian nations of the West, incredibly, turning their backs on their own culture and traditions, and on the very God who has blessed them so richly and for so long, rejecting their call to “go forth and make disciples of all nations”, militant and aggressive Islam will take advantage of this inconceivable blunder by filling in the void here as well.

    ‘”You will become a Muslim. You will pray five times a day with the Muslims. You should take off the cross, because this is only for Christians,” the cleric states. “Take it off right now.” The man then rips the necklace off his neck, raises his finger in the air and repeats the Islamic creed.”

    Doesn’t sound like much of a choice, does it?

    “Who among you wants to join Islam?”All of you do? In that case… WAIT, THESE TWO DON’T WANT TO!,” the cleric states. “Who wants to join Islam? Do you want to join Islam?”

    Gee I wonder what the fate will be for THOSE two, down the road.
    If only we had some examples to go by….

    How interesting it has been watching the United States and Europe, prompted by the UN, commit suicide by irrationally resettling vast populations of specifically Muslim people ILLEGALLY, foregoing any kind of border control whatsoever while simultaneously taking away the rights and freedoms of their own citizens under the guise of ‘fighting terrorism’ and keeping you ‘safe’!? Mindboggling hypocrisy. Just incredible that they are getting away with it.

    And it begs the question, why?

    Why WOULD you want to send continuous waves of Muslim populations into predominantly Christian cultures in communities and nations that are already financially bankrupt and completely incapable of supporting these vast populations of foreign cultures?

    Why wouldn’t you simply resettle them in neighbouring oil rich Arab nations that share the same culture and are so much closer and therefore much more inexpensive to transport?
    Hmmm….yes, it doesn’t really add up, does it? Must be a very good reason why our NWO friends are going to so much trouble and expense. Wonder what it could be…

    Whatever their goal, the end result can be clearly seen before our very eyes:
    The worldwide decline and replacement of the Christian faith with another. By design.
    Just like the Bible told us would happen.
    Now who do we know that has been trying to do just that for over 2000 years?

    And people don’t believe that there’s a real Devil.
    You have to give credit where credit’s due folks.
    He’s been working his tail off! Er, so to speak.

    Gee I wonder, what’s the rush? 🙂
    What a time to be alive! We’re so close…

    • Jolanda Tiellemans

      You know Muslims have been here in some nations of Europe since 711, never did any of them try to convince me to join their religion. Christians on the other hand tried several times.

      • afchief

        That’s what Jesus told us to do. We will not force you to accept Jesus. Muslims will force you or kill you.

        • Jolanda Tiellemans

          Was there any mention in that video about when you don’t join we kill you? And again, I know Muslims and they never forced me to join their religion, they respect my choices, just like I respect theirs. Yehova witnesses are at my door every weekend, I can’t walk in town without finding a Christian trying to convince me to join their religion. You where saying?

          • Josey

            Jehovah witnesses are not followers of Christ Jesus

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Nope, but christians do, right? I was just pointing out that Muslims never tried to convince me to join their religion, cause you claimed they do. You claimed that christians are not convincing anyone to join their religion, I pointed out they do. And you come with the lame response, ‘Jehova witnesses are not followers of Christ Jesus’.

          • afchief

            John 3:3 (NASB) Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            And still no answer to my question. Throwing around verses is something you people do when you don’t have a answer. I really shouldn’t be surprised anymore.

          • afchief

            Even though many Muslims regard terrorists who kill in the name of Allah as criminals, they cannot deny that Muhammad also killed in the name of Allah. What example of Jesus do Christians emulate which has them confused with terrorists and criminals?

            Each year, thousands of Christian homes and churches are torched or bombed by Muslim mobs, and hundreds of Christians, including dozens of priests, pastors, nuns and other church workers are murdered at the hands of Islamic extremists. The so-called justification varies, from charges of apostasy or evangelism, to purported “blasphemy” or “insulting” Islam. Innocent people have even been hacked to death by devout Muslims over cartoons.

            Yet, there is little if any violent retaliation from religious Christians to the discrimination, kidnapping, rape, torture, mutilation and murder that is routinely reported from nations with Muslim majorities. Neither is there any significant deadly terrorism in the name of Jesus, as there is in the stated cause of Allah each and every day. Muslim clerics in the West do not fear for their safety as do their Christian counterparts.

            The “Christian world” and the Islamic world contrast sharply in other ways as well, from the disparate condition of human rights and civil liberties to economic status. An astonishing 70% of the world’s refugees are Muslims – usually seeking to live in Christian-based countries.

            While Western societies take seriously “scandals” such as Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo (where no one has actually been killed), Muslims routinely turn a blind eye to their own horrible atrocities, even those committed explicitly in the name of Allah. The Muslim world has yet to offer a single apology for the hundreds of millions who were consumed by centuries of relentless Jihad and slavery.

            These sharp differences are almost certainly rooted in the underlying religions, which begin with the disparate teachings and examples set by Jesus and Muhammad…

            Theocracy (in the form of Sharia) really is the the explicit goal of Islamic teaching, whereas Christianity leaves room for the separation of religion and government (Mark 12:17, John 18:36). Terrorism really is an expression of devotion to Allah (here’s an example) – and not just criminal activity or warfare by disinterested parties with a nominal religious identification (ie. “born a Catholic”).

            If threatening people with eternal damnation is considered distasteful, then Christianity has far less to be ashamed of than Islam, which not only alludes to the terrible fate awaiting unbelievers in nearly every other chapter of the Quran, but includes vivid descriptions of torture at the hands of a psychopathic god.

            The two religions contrast sharply even in their positive aspects. The morality of the Qur’an is amateurish and frustratingly obscure for those trying to compare it with what is contained in the Bible. Most of Islam’s holiest book is devoted toward distinguishing and heaping abuse on unbelievers. There are no verses that promote universal love and brotherhood. The few verses that are sometimes held up as examples of tolerance and peace generally require separation from textual and historical context.

            The difference between Christianity and Islam starts at the top:

            Muslims are told that their prophet Muhammad – a slave-owner, sexual glutton, thief and killer – is the most “beautiful pattern of conduct” and “example” for mankind to follow (Qur’an 33:21), as well as the “exalted standard of character” (Qur’an 68:4).

            Christians are told to emulate Jesus – a pacifist and servant – and “walk, even as he walked” (1 John 2:6). Unlike Muhammad, who ordered military assaults against Christians, for example, Jesus told his followers not to resort to violence and to pray for one’s enemies.

            These two men could hardly have been more different in how they lived or in what they taught others. Why should we not expect starkly contrasting legacies – from the conduct of their closest companions to the livability of modern-day countries influenced by the predominance of one founder’s teachings over the other?

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Why is it so hard for some christians like you to give a straight answer? My question. Is there any mention in the video about ‘if you don’t join we kill you’? Simple question. It won’t
            be so hard to answer if you have seen the video, right?

          • Laurence Charles Ringo

            Do you think it’s possible,just maybe,that threatening to kill someone who won’t embrace your idealogy might NOT be a good selling point,Jolanda? I mean, are you SERIOUSLY expecting any proselytizing video to actually say that? What’s wrong with you? ?

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Yeah yeah all Muslims are bad and will kill anyone who won’t convert to their religion.

          • Michael Falsia

            Muslims don’t teach convert or die because they have a doctrine of subjugation and submission which relegates non Muslims to a lower class within their societies and imposes a tax on infidels who are not free to openly talk about their faith let alone engage a Muslim with the claims of Christ or any other belief! Second Muslims have historically forced conversions at least outwardly during many of their campaigns of conquest even as the Prophet did in the Arabian peninsula. Third Muslims did not conquer parts of Europe by proclaiming the Muslim faith by moral suasion and encouraging people to read the Koran? Egypt was taken by force as was Afghanistan formerly a Buddhist country. When they were the conquerors they imposed Islamic law even though at times their rulers were somewhat tolerant of other religions but not without the restrictions mentioned above. As Muslims are not in the majority and do not possess imperial power here in America or modern Europe the consequences for infidelity are hard to grasp. Should they become the majority you will see what this faith really looks like? Most Muslims do not care about converting others because they pass on their religion by generation and sheer force of numbers and cultural domination. Muslims believe that every human is born a Muslim and does not know it due to all of the chaos and religious confusion the world has experienced throughout history. Hence the call and mission of the Prophet whose teachings teachings are expressed in an exclusive Islam knows no such thing as separation of Mosque as it were and state? They don’t openly witness because of this racial and cultural component which is pa. Although they are or at least some are imitating the Christian doctrine of evangelism as you see in the video. Africa has some of the most radical elements of Islam and is doing its utmost to compete with Christianity. Once you accept Islam you are under sharia law except in those countries where Islam does not rule over all society. The purest form of Islam you will see is in Saudi Arabia where wives can be beaten for disobedience and executed for adultery! Muslims spread their faith by demographics and internet resources in today’s world and that is what happening right now. If you think Jehovah’s witnesses are bad don’t ever speak blasphemously against Mohammed in a heavily populated Muslim area? It will be a lot easier to live among JW’S then Muslims who won’t tolerate liberalism or the notion of free speech as we enjoy it now? The false Christian empires of old Europe is dead and gone but the ambitions of the Islamic state are alive and well. Just ask the Christians in Sudan’s Nuba mountains.

    • Josey

      I agree and it’s sad for those who were afraid for their lives that only two out of all of them made the right choice. But I also think the NWO elites with the rise of the antichrist will not stand for any religion not even Islam but he will want their worship and there will be a NWO religion for all as the Bible has predicted. Too bad for all you who claim you are atheist for soon you will bow down either to a antichrist, the man of sin and take his mark and be damned for all eternity or you will wake up repent and bow down to the true Christ, the Lamb of God, King of Kings, the Lord Jesus whose name is above every name given under Heaven and earth and most likely be a martyr for Christ but gain eternal life.

    “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
    Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
    Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.”

    Islam is the most popular Lie against the Truth currently, but it isn’t the only one. The biggest Lie is the false religion which masquerades as Christianity, which many people have fallen for and practice as though it is Truth. The Lie comes in many flavors, but all of them mask their true nature.

    Only those who know the Son of God hear His Voice and follow Him. For those of us who know the Truth, there is no threat from any religion, for we are seated in heavenly places in the LORD and are taught of the LORD. The offer is to all, but only a few will accept, as the LORD has already spoken.

    Hear the Word of God, believe the Word of God, and you will receive the Faith to save you from Sin.
