Muhammad was raised in a very devout Muslim home with a family that believed their purpose was to build mosques and spread Islam everywhere. As a leader in the mosque he would organize small groups that prowled the streets looking for Christians. Muhammad said that they would attack Christians that were on their way to church and he himself had even attacked a Christian once with a knife. But all of that was about to change after a visitation from the Lord.
One night, while sleeping, a voice came from heaven and told Muhammad to come out of darkness and follow him. Muhammad knew that it was the voice of the Christian God and when he told his mother about the dream she refused to listen and kicked him out of the house. Muhammad had grown up in a strict Muslim family and at first this caused him to disobey the voice and not follow God. Then he had another dream but this time God expressed anger and said "Muhammad you will leave this place of darkness and follow me". Once again Muhammad refused to obey the voice but became very ill; leaving him unable to eat, walk or talk.A heavy burden had come over him and he went from hospital to hospital seeking treatment but could not get healed.
