My God Will Provide

A Christian man who lost his job after refusing to convert to Islam is currently in hiding after receiving death threats. Asif, who was a valued supervisor at a garment factory, used to lead 10 coworkers in prayer before work every morning. In 2017, the factory owner approached him and told him to stop the prayers. Instead, Asif gave him a Bible to read so he could learn about Christianity. Several months later, the owner brought an Islamic cleric in to persuade Asif to accept Islam, but Asif refused. This year, the owner tried to force Asif to offer Muslim prayers with him, but Asif still did not give in. Finally, in August, the owner gave him an ultimatum: Accept Islam or lose your job. Asif replied, “My God will provide me with everything,” and the owner fired him. Pray for Asif and his family, who had to leave their home after receiving death threats. Pray also that Asif will find a new job.
