In 2014 God appeared as Allah to Amin Ahmed Khalil and asked him to become His Imam or Teacher. Khalil, who had never even been to a mosque before, was at first hesitant, and began his mission quietly and cautiously by obtaining a copy of the Qur'an from a local library. But Khalil's character changed over time and he became fearless in the proclamation of his identity and his ideas. The book he wrote, Brief Thoughts About a New Islam contains 97 epigrams that are monumental in their quality because they are both revolutionary and timeless. This is a book for quiet contemplation and spiritual counsel; but it is also dedicated to the martyrs for a free Islam who are ready to live and die in defiance of repressive regimes and the Islamic clerical establishment.
Martin Luther said, "It is neither safe nor wise to violate conscience. Here I stand; I can do no other, so help me God." Amin Ahmed Khalil fully expects to receive the fatwah of the Ayatollahs of Iran because he published this book. Khalil accepts Allah's call in the spirit of Martin Luther, who would have chosen to die rather than recant and renounce the books that could restore Christianity to the teachings of the Apostle Paul and Jesus Christ.
