Muslim Man Escapes Death, Wakes Up From Coma And Converts To Christianity

According to reports, a Muslim who suffered from a sudden brain aneurysm that left him in a coma has converted to Christianity after a miraculous recovery.

The young man, Karim Shamsi-Basha was reportedly in a coma for a month in 1992 but when he woke up, he began a 20-year journey that lead to him becoming a Christian.

His neurosurgeon told him he had seen very few people in his condition go on to make a full recovery and suggested that Mr Shamsi-Basha find out why he survived.


Mr Shamsi-Basha, who is a photojournalist, talks about how he practices Islam as a teenager; ‘I prayed five times a day. I walked to the mosque before sunrise. I fasted the month of Ramadan,’ he said.

When he was 18 he left the country, ran by the first Assad regime, to study at the University of Tennessee in the U.S. before working as a photojournalist at a local newspaper in Birmingham Alabama, getting married and fathering a son.

It was in 1992 when he was covering a fire at Independent Presbyterian Church for his local newspaper, that Mr Shamsi-Basha collapsed in its car park where he suffered a brain aneurism that could have left him paralysed.

He wrote a book about his journey, called PAUL AND ME, which includes chapters about Paul – one of the Bible’s best known figures – whose conversion to Christianity took place in the city of Damascus.
