Mohd. Saleem was born into a wealthy Muslim family in Pakistan, grew up in Saudi Arabia and lives abroad now. He asked many questions on the meaning of life: Why am I here? Where did I come from? Is there really a God and if so where is He? Why doesn't He talk? One day while surfing at an internet cafe in a Middle Eastern country, he searched for Jesus. "Who Is Jesus?" and got lots of web sites. He was amazed that he could search about Jesus Christ on the internet! He kept coming to this web site often and so began his spiritual journey of faith in Jesus Christ. Jeremiah 29:11 declares "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."God has been faithful to Mohd Saleem.
4 The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue,
to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning,
wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.
5 The Sovereign LORD has opened my ears,
and I have not been rebellious;
I have not drawn back.
6 I offered my back to those who beat me,
my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard;
I did not hide my face
from mocking and spitting.
7 Because the Sovereign LORD helps me,
I will not be disgraced.
Therefore have I set my face like flint,
and I know I will not be put to shame.
8 He who vindicates me is near.
Who then will bring charges against me?
Let us face each other!
Who is my accuser?
Let him confront me!
9 It is the Sovereign LORD who helps me.
Who is he that will condemn me?
They will all wear out like a garment;
the moths will eat them up.
