This woman is about to be executed for converting to Christianity

Call to action!

Your prayers and phone calls to Congress are needed to save a pregnant female physician, Dr. Mariam Yahya Ibrahim, who has been sentenced to death by the government of Sudan.

Why?

Because Dr. Ibrahim, though born to a Muslim father, married a Christian man in 2011.

Mariam IbrahimThe 26-year-old woman, who is eight months pregnant and has an 18-month-old son, was convicted of apostasy – or renouncing her Muslim faith – by a court in Khartoum. She is also charged with adultery for marrying a Christian man.

Judge Abbas al-Khalifa ordered her to abandon her newly adopted Christian faith and return to Islam.

Like St. Joan of Arc, the brave woman calmly told the judge: “I am a Christian and I never committed apostasy.”

So the judge ordered that she be given 100 lashes, then told this brave Christian martyr, “We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged to death.”

A government spokesman said the ruling could be appealed in a higher court. “Sudan is committed to all human rights and freedom of faith granted in Sudan by the constitution and law,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Abu-Bakr Al-Siddiq said. He added that his ministry trusted the integrity and independence of the judiciary.

Blah. Blah. Blah.

Outside the court, around 50 people held up signs that read “Freedom of Religion”, while some Islamists celebrated the ruling, chanting “God is Greatest.”

“The fact a woman has been sentenced to death for her religious choice, and to flogging for being married to a man of an allegedly different religion, is abhorrent,” said Amnesty International.

White House National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said in a statement Thursday evening, “We strongly condemn this sentence and urge the Government of Sudan to meet its obligations under international human rights law” and to respect the religious freedom guaranteed in Sudan’s constitution. Blah. Blah. Blah.

  2. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this important post. I will also include her in our Divine Mercy Chaplet right away. We do pray for all persecuted Catholics and Christians of all other denominations throughout the world on a daily basis. I will also ask St. Joan of Arc to intervene and help her.

     
  3. I applaud this lady for her courage, and she must have a clear mind: She has her mind and her heart focused on eternity. Not possible without Grace. I will keep this lady in my prayers.

    I can do more to help, I know; how can I best present the case when calling (out) Congress? I’m looking into the archives of Sudan’s sanctions to learn what can be changed, but without hurting the nation, economically or otherwise.

    This is all a big new world to me, so I don’t mean to sound callous; I just want my understanding to be fully in the right when fighting for what is right

     
  7. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for the Petition information. It is signed. I took a copy of your post and brought it with me to the Divine Mercy chaplet and I showed it to Our Lord Jesus Christ (her picture) in the Blessed Sacrament. I continue to pray for her and her family, for her safety, freedom and security.

    But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
    Jesus Christ

    We are all over this with the weapon that isn’t carnal “Prayer”.

  10. Good news!

    After huge international pressure was brought on the Sudanese govt, Meriam Ibrahim will be released in a matter of days.

    A Sudanese govt official Abdullahi Alazreg announced the decision to the BBC, but Ibrahim’s lawyers said they do not believe the offer is genuine, and is a ploy to silence the growing outcry.
