Domestic Abuse Drives Muslim to Pray to a New God


We believed in the five pillars of Islam. Our family was very, very strict Muslims. We believed in making prayer five times a day. My father was very serious about us studying the Koran and us knowing what it said. Listen, it was demanded of her as a child when Misha Wesley heard the Koran read aloud. Misha obeyed because she wanted to please Allah and not anger her father. I was very proud to wear my headdress and my khimars even as a child. I felt kind of superior. But despite his religious fervor, Misha’s father was physically and sexually abusive. My mom was so helpless. She had no one to help her. One time I saw my mom and dad fight each other. She would throw weights at him to fight him back. It was a very violent upbringing. I remember one time laying next to my sister and my father as he sexually abused her. It as so painful. This was my normal. Please, please, please– Girl, you wanna sleep? (sister screams) The perversion and violence in her home made Misha question Allah’s power and care. And I really began to doubt Allah a lot but I felt the urge to pray to God and not Allah. I don’t know why I said that I just asked God, “Please help my sisters “so they won’t get beat by him no more.” And I remember crying and I remember praying that prayer. The next night, police pounded on their door and arrested Misha’s father. He was charged with robbery and attempted murder and sentenced to 10 years in prison. To Misha, it was a sign. I kept praying that way because I knew God would answer. To get help from other relatives, Misha’s mother, her daughters, and young son moved to New York City. However, there was never enough money to support them. So, in her early teens Misha shed her khimar and her dignity to help pay for her family’s food and rent. I started stripping when I was 15 years old. My mom did not have any idea. And it was fast and it was easy and I needed that money. I stopped believing at all, didn’t care about any God, any Allah. I was living fast and I was loving it. Two years after Misha’s father was paroled, he died. Misha followed her mother and sisters to Alabama where they had relocated. Still in high school, she met Larry and fell in love. After graduation, they married. There was a genuineness about him. There was realness. He was so loving. I think he filled that void that I really wanted, that someone to love me. At times Misha went to church with Larry’s family and cousin. People were worshiping together, men and women together. Being raised as a Muslim, not having men and women together, I thought it was strange. [Narrator] Misha wasn’t excited about church, but rather a secret relationship. She left Larry and committed adultery with an older man. I saw my father be promiscuous and I thought it was okay while he was married, so I figured, you know, why not, why not? Misha and Larry got back together to try and work through the betrayal. Larry’s cousin started posting sermons on her Facebook page about Jesus. One day in her car Misha stopped and listened to a post that overwhelmed her. I don’t know how long I was out, I just don’t know. But I know that I was out and that day my soul was saved because in the prayer she was saying, “Surrender, say it, surrender, I surrender.” And I kept telling Jesus, “I surrender, I surrender, “I surrender, I surrender, Jesus.” It was like a fear washed over me, not like a fear that I was scared of the dark, but a fear that was heavy, and I felt all over me. It was no longer God, it was Jesus and I surrendered to Him that day, fully, totally. Because I said it with my mouth, with my heart, with my mind, I meant it. Immediately, Misha felt deep sorrow for those she’d harmed, especially Larry, and forgiveness towards those who had wounded her. It added more pain in my heart to see Larry in pain, to see Larry hurting the way I made him hurt. And I actually looked at it and I said, “I caused this.” Everybody who offended me or everybody who did anything to me, He told me to pray for them, let them go. All Misha’s desires and priorities changed too. I started to want and desire His Word. I was reading the Bible more and more. I was in the Word more and more, I was hungry. But now, because I take the Word, and I apply the Word to my life, to my family, to those around me, to the children I minister to, that’s the difference. We have peace, we have love, and I remember the Lord always told me, “I will never allow violence to be mentioned of “in your land ever again.” And there’s no more violence. Jesus gave me something that I never had. He was the father. He is Abba, Abba Father. He was the father I was seeking from other men, even in the strip club. He was the good, good father that I desperately wanted to meet and I needed. (upbeat inspirational music)

    THE SAYINGS OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD ( PBUH )

    01 ) What actions are most excellent ? To gladden the heart of human beings , to feed the hungry , to help the afflicted , to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful , and to remove the sufferings of the injured .

    02) Once a man approached the Holy Prophet Muhammad ( pbuh ) and said , " O Prophet of Allah ! Advice me how to lead a good life ? " The Holy Prophet replied , " Be kind and decent to others " .

    03 ) Heaven lies at the foot of your mother .

    04 ) Do good and serve your mother , then your mother , then your mother , and then your father .

    05 ) He who believes in Allah & the last Day should either utter good words or better keep silence .

    06) Gabriel continued to recommend me about treating the neighbours kindly and politely so much so that I thought he would order me to make them as my heirs .

    07 ) Be Patient

    08 ) Allah's blessings will depend on the Parents' blessing and Allah's wrath will depend on the wrath of both parents .

    09 ) Looking at your parents with kindness brings the reward of an accepted pilgrimage .

    10 ) The seeking of knowledge is obligatory for every muslim .

    the gospel of John, which is the latest gospel which is the only one that portays jesus as a pre-existing divine being, but the first three dont, please read New York Best Seller Book "How Jesus Became God" by Bart Ehrman. for for logical argument sake, when jesus was praying to God in Marks Gospel, if trinity says jesus and God are one, was God talking to Himself? if jesus and God are separate and you worship Jesus, you are committing polytheism which violates the greatest commandment [Mark 12:28-29], if jesus and God are one, was God the talking to Himself??

    Ezekiel 9:5-6 New International Version (NIV)

    5 )As I listened, he said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion. 
    6) Slaughter the old men, the young men and women, the mothers and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary.” So they began with the old men who were in front of the temple.
    ###########
    Genesis 19:30-38 New International Version (NIV)

    Lot and His Daughters

    30 Lot and his two daughters left Zoar and settled in the mountains, for he was afraid to stay in Zoar. He and his two daughters lived in a cave. 31 One day the older daughter said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man around here to give us children—as is the custom all over the earth. 32 Let’s get our father to drink wine and then sleep with him and preserve our family line through our father.”
    33 That night they got their father to drink wine, and the older daughter went in and slept with him. He was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up.
    34 The next day the older daughter said to the younger, “Last night I slept with my father. Let’s get him to drink wine again tonight, and you go in and sleep with him so we can preserve our family line through our father.”35 So they got their father to drink wine that night also, and the younger daughter went in and slept with him. Again he was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up.
    36 So both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant by their father. 37 The older daughter had a son, and she named him Moab[a]; he is the father of the Moabites of today. 38 The younger daughter also had a son, and she named him Ben-Ammi[b]; he is the father of the Ammonites[c] of today
