As Thousands of Muslims Observe the Hajj, Christian Brother A Remains in Limbo

The hajj, an annual Muslim pilgrimage, is a vibrant six-day event this year, with pilgrims organized into color-coded groups following a strict schedule. Only 60,000 Saudi residents are allowed to participate because of the pandemic.

Saudi Arabia may have banned foreign visitors, but nothing can stop the Holy Spirit.

“It’s during times like the hajj, or Ramadan, when our Muslim friends around the world are,” Greg Musselman with Voice of the Martyrs Canada says.

“God is doing a work in our Muslim friends’ lives, and we just pray that we’d see many, many more come to know Jesus.”

The same God who breaks spiritual strongholds in the Muslim world can save “Brother A” from danger. This persecuted Saudi Christian is in serious trouble, but details are hard to find.

Advocates say there’s a purpose to the secrecy. “We have to be careful; we [don’t] want to cause our brother any more harm than he’s already gone through,” Musselman says.

“He is under a lot of pressure right now [and] we’re watching this case very closely.”
