Meriam Ibrahim’s Islamic Relatives Trying To Return Her To Jail

Luke 21:12 “But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.

The Islamists family members of persecuted Christian Meriam Ibrahim are attempting to get the death sentence against her reinstated by trying to prove she was “born a Muslim.”

The family contends that because she’s a Muslim, her marriage to a Christian man is illegal under Sudan’s Sharia Law.

The lawyer hired by the family says they are going to ask Khartoum Religious Court to review the case and declare Meriam Ibrahim “belongs” to the men in her family.

Ibrahim is in hiding at the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum with her American husband and two children.  She has been unable to leave the country because of the government’s special police charging her with using illegal documents to leave the country.

Ibrahim’s lawyer Mohanem Mostafa said that the court has not officially notified her of the lawsuit but that he believes the court will dismiss the case.
