5. Basic Christianity

For some of ex-Muslims, it is important that the area where they live now, or where they originally come from, is not too closely identified to ensure either their own safety or that of their families. Others do not have great safety concerns and hencesa country name is given. Many of these believers from Muslim backgrounds are “online” and welcome your response. Those with emails are listed first in each category.  “A” after the name means the testimony is available in several languages, usually English and the native language of the convert. Most of the testimonies were written by former orthodox and practicing Muslims. Some came from a nominal or sectarian Muslim background.
