Ali Ansari: Thanks to Ali Sina, my brother in Ex Islam
I send this message to you with mixed feelings in my heart (The feeling of grief and the feeling of partial freedom). Grief because I am a victim of a scattered family and Partial freedom because though I’m free from Islam, My Muslim friends won’t just stop hunting me. My name: Ali Mustafa Ansari was inherited from my grandfather, Late. Sheikh Abdullah Mustafa Ansari. I was born in the creamy province of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa where I lost three of my half siblings to ulcer (During 2001’s Ramadan). My Father, being a father of 13 and a husband of 3 was a traveling man so he barely had time for the family. My Mother and I broke out of our home at Ethiopia and we moved over to Pretoria, prior to her first Hajj due to the numerous quarrels we always had back there in Ethiopia which ended with a death threat coming from the most senior wife of all the three. The problem seemed solved at first until when we were visited by my Step Mother’s eldest son: Zakir alongside some of my other brothers with a very heart-rending news. “The people (group of leaders) of our region said that we (our whole family) were no longer worthy to share the same soil with them”. What was the reason for that sudden enmity? My brothers had no answer to it. It was near to half a year later we found out that My Father, after leaving for Sweden in 2004, came back an apostate. From what I heard, the people of our region, after hearing of my Father’s apostasy, tried to make him reconsider his decision but from the way thinks were, his decision was final so in agitation to that, we were ‘expelled’ from that region.
My Family’s expulsion seemed less steep to what we deserved (as the case may be) so all my father’s inheritance [as the first son of Late. Sheikh Abdullah Mustafa Ansari] was cancelled by my paternal relations with the help of the court. My elder brother Migrated to Nigeria and while the other wives of my father remained in Ethiopia, my Father seemed to be enjoying his stay at Saudi Arabia (Irony). My Father’s apostasy was more like a virus as its spread was very swift and vast (extending to his friends and a member of the people of our region). Atheism was my Father’s first choice but later became a Christian after living in the western part of the world from mid 2006 to 2011. I never considered living Islam for once in my life and It will never happen (at least I thought so because it seemed to be the only right religion in the world). I, 21, left my mother’s house in order to start a new life somewhere around North Africa.
I made new friends among the Moors and they were ‘quite’ peaceful to me [being their type, a Muslim]. The people of other religions were so few in number that you could count them with your fingers… I’m sorry if my story is boring to whoever that is reading it but let me go straight to the point: I came across a friend, a Christian, so isolated from the others as if shy. He was a very kind fellow but he found it difficult interacting with people dressed like mullahs. When we got to know each other very well, share things in common and so on, I came across so many things I have never known in my life. He even lent me his personal Bible which I had to hide from my Muslim friends for both my and his safety [Note: I also had a Bible when I was still in Ethiopia because sometimes I engaged in bitter arguments with many Christians]. One day, I took his Phone from the top of his desk and wanted to browser the Internet. Immediately I went to the browser, I saw on the history of sites visited: faithfreedom.org, Anwering-islam.com, and many others, of course I knew answering-christianity.com but what I saw in these two sites did not only debunk those ones in answering-christianity.com but it gave me a turn around on how I thought of my Role Model Prophet Muhammad. Worst of all, I came across SINA’S CHALLENGE AND UNDERSTANDING MUHAMMAD; not only were these damaging to my belief but they were even damaging to my health. After much research on what would debunk those proofs [on Sina’s web], I gave up my faith especially when I found on that the refuters weren’t really convincing and it had something to do with the Prophecy in John 16:2 and 2 Peter 2:1-3. Without much ado, My friend (name withheld) introduced me to one of His neighbours, an Evangelist and since then, I wouldn’t say I’ve been free (Though I am free from the bondage of Islam)I and My friend are really wanted in the place I live in Morocco [My friend even got arrested once]. My conversion took place between June 20, 2011 and July 29, 2012 [Considered in October 29. 2011]
Please my brothers and sisters, I have tested and tasted it: It seemed sweet when I was chewing it but as I swallowed it, it gave me the worst stomach upset a food could ever give a person; I even came to realize how far my Muslim friends could go just to make sure I pay for my apostasy. May God give you all the eyes to see the truth and may that pride and stubbornness that was in me be removed from you so that you may see that there is no truth in a lie and no lie and a truth.
I WITHHELD SOME VITAL INFORMATION LIKE: MY FULL LOCATION, MY FRIEND’S NAME, AND E.T.C. FOR SECURITY PURPOSES. PLEASE BEAR WITH ME
Ali Mustafa Ansari, now a Christian [Thanks to Ali Sina, my brother in Ex Islam]. Post my testimony on your site: I want the whole world to know
