The Torn Veil is a remarkable story of Gulshan Esther. Esther was born to a wealthy and prominent family in Pakistan. She was crippled from infancy and for years sought healing in vain. At 14, her father brought her to England to see a specialist but the only hope they could offer was prayer. From England, Esther went on a pilgrimage to Mecca with her father and begged Allah for healing. Following her father’s death when she was 16 years old, Esther desperately called out to God. And for the first time, Esther sensed she was being heard. One night, Jesus miraculously healed Esther and restored her crippled arm and leg and told her to tell to people what He had done. Esther became a Christian and following her conversion, her brothers threatened to kill her. She was punished and she loss her inheritance and was jailed for a month. Today, Esther lives in Oxford and travels widely on speaking tours on which she discusses her book and answers questions about her faith.
- “When my American friend came to visit me in Egypt, I was still a Muslim. I took this opportunity to mess with his backpack to check out and see what ‘conspiracy’ this man might have in mind for me. You see, for us Arabs, everything is conspiracy, somebody must be plotting something averse to our good. So, going through his stuffs, I saw this book and it caught my attention. I got so glued to this book and sat on the sofa and read it at once. It was a story of a Muslim like I was and Jesus healed her in such miraculous way. Her faith was amazing and I felt so pricked in my heart that I screamed out to God, “Lord, where is the truth? Is it in Jesus Christ or in Muhammad?”. A few month later, the pastor announced, “Ibrahim, I baptized you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.” It felt such amazing and beautiful as if it happened yesterday. Now I was ready to renounce darkness and oppression and transfer to healing and true liberty. If you know any Muslim you want to introduce to Christ, this is the best testimony ever.” – Ibrahim, Goodreads
- “I believe every word of it, because I believe in the miraculous, and her story rings true to the many other stories of redemption and transformation I’ve read and heard. And her struggles are typical of her background. I will share this book with my Muslim friends.” – Anonymous, Amazon Review
- “One of the best testimonies I’ve ever read. A must for everyone..Christian and non-Christian alike. A great gift to be given to a Muslim friend…” – J. Tullis, Amazon Review
