Hiding in the Light

Why I Risked Everything to Leave Islam and Follow Jesus

Be the first to review this product

"After four years of hiding my faith from my family, I knew that it was time. I wrote with shaky hands, 'Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I refuse to deny him....' There was no turning back now. I had to get out of that house if I wanted to live. Was this worth risking everything for? Yes."



In 2009, sixteen-year-old Rifqa Bary made national news when she ran away from her Ohio home, claiming that her father, an observant Muslim, had abused and threatened to kill her because of her Christian faith. The media storm pitted critics of Islam against its defenders, sparking national debate about the treatment of women and converts within Islam and how they should be protected.



A true story of a young woman's courageous decision to leave Islam and follow Jesus—no matter the cost.



In Hiding in the Light, Rifqa Bary recounts in riveting detail the events leading up to her decision to leave home and the chain of events that followed. Her story challenges us to consider what it means to sacrifice for faith and to ask ourselves how far we would go to live out what we believe.



"An extraordinary glimpse into the faith of a Christ-follower and the sovereignty of God. Rifqa's story informs, inspires, and empowers."Max Lucado, pastor and author



Fatima Rifqa Bary, native of Sri Lanka, moved with her family to the United States at the age of eight and converted from Islam to Christianity at age twelve. Still living in an undisclosed location, Rifqa's passions are prayer, missions, and people. She also cherishes long talks with loved ones over coffee and eating lots of chicken curry.
