Fathima Rifqa Bary

click here for: August ’09 – Healing Prayer Newsletter – ( I will also send it out the regular way…)

Below is a prayer request for this girl, and any other girls like her.
Please pray for Rifqa Bary.

Full name Fathima Rifqa Bary

Age 17 (she just had her birthday)

From Ohio – just ran away to Florida seeking religious asylum. Her life could easily be at stake, if the Florida courts send her back to Ohio. She says her father threatened to kill her because she converted to Christianity. She did this secretly a few years ago, but he only recently found out. She says he is bound by his faith to kill her for this. Quotes below give this a context. Even though there are indeed peaceful Muslims, others do take the letter of the law quite seriously:

“When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed. In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representative) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.” — ‘Umdat al-Salik o8.1-2

“Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.” — Muhammad

There are many cases of this, even in the United States. Tuesday morning at the SRW class, Devi mentioned we can see the old ways of Kali Yuga clashing against the new expansive vibrations of Dwapara Yuga.  The technology of Dwapara Yuga brings things out into the open, through e-mail and videos, etc. It exposes these things to the Light.

This girl is pleading for her life. May the blessings of God, Christ, Guru be with her now.

Her attorney, Rosa Gonzalez, informed Central Florida News 13 such threats are common in the United States.  The lawyer stated, “She says her life is in danger and she could be killed in an honor killing.”

This is a complex topic… Europe has seen a sharp rise in “honor killings” over the years. It is unfortunate now to see this “dark ages” scenario here in America.  There have been other cases, which is why I am taking this girl seriously, and ask for your prayers…

A report compiled by the Council of Europe warns that the killings of women by family members to protect their so-called honor is far more extensive in Europe than previously believed… to learn more click here: “Number of Honor Killings in Europe Higher Than Thought

    Apostasy from Islam
    By Nonie Darwish
    If you convert you die.

    Few Americans know what is going on inside the Muslim world and what it portends for them. The fact is that, most Americans are subjected to much of the same misinformation with regard to Islam that I grew up with inside the Muslim world. Thus Americans are in the dark attempting to formulate their strategy to defend themselves against the threat of terror, domestic jihad and Sharia. While they get ridiculed for being ‘Islamophobes’, the Muslim world itself is undergoing a huge and painful awakening…
