Dismembered Arab Sheikh Raised from the Dead After Visiting an Orthodox Convent - newspaper

A dismembered Arab sheikh raised from the dead after visiting an Orthodox convent - newspaper
damned
Moscow, February 3, Interfax - "One of the Saudi Arabia sheikhs ‘rose from the dead’ after visiting Panagia Saidnaya, an old convent near Damascus, the Trud daily writes on Friday.

After being killed and quartered, this man was sewed up anew with the use of some technology unknown to humanity, the newspaper says referring to medics who analyzed this unique occurrence.

The US military medics, who also took part in the expertise, came to the conclusion that it was a result of ‘the UFO interference’ and classified this information as secret.

According to the newspaper, the sheikh and his wife could not have children. They decided to go on their last journey together to Syria to venerate local Muslim shrines. One taxi-driver there advised them to visit the Sidnay Convent with its miracle-working Icon of the Mother of God, which often helped to childless families.

The sheikh promised to donate 80 thousand dollars to the convent and to give 20 thousand dollars to the driver if his prayers were answered. Nine months later, his wife gave birth to a hair. Happy sheikh went immediately to Damascus to fulfil his promise, came in contact with the driver and asked him to meet him at the airport.

The driver came with two ‘bodyguards’. On its way to the convent the car suddenly turned into a deserted place and the three men made a short work of the sheikh by cutting off his legs, arms and head. They took his money and jewels and put the remnants of the poor sheikh into the boot in order to drive him away to a safe place.

After a few kilometers the car suddenly stalled. A man who was driving by offered his help, but it was rudely rejected. But this Syrian felt something was wrong and called to the police, who came and caught the three accomplices unawares.

They all experienced an even greater shock after they opened the boot. The motionless and blooded body suddenly began to stir, then revived and stood up slightly rocking. The first words he said were: ‘This same Panagia has just finished sewing up my neck here…’

After this declaration, the driver and ‘his bodyguards’ went out of their mind."

Re: Dismembered Arab Sheikh Raised from the Dead After Visiting an Orthodox Convent - newspaper
This is the account from the Orthodox church. The "technology unknown to humanity" is what is meant by a "miracle."

"The Miracle in Syria"


Compiled by Archimandrite Nektarios Serfes, Boise, Idaho USA


In December 2004 a Saudi Arabian man, a Moslem, appeared before several new agencies to relate the following incredible event he experienced and which changed his life (this story appeared on TV, the Internet, radio, and was circulated in newspapers, magazines, and pamphlets throughout Saudi Arbia, Syria, Palestine, and evidently in all neighboring countries.

Some years ago, this man married a very rich Moslem woman but sterile. As the years passed, and despite all their efforts and significant medical expenses with many doctors, they remained childless. The man's parents suggested to him that he marry a second woman, while upholding his initial marriage (as the local laws permits up to four concurrent marriages).

Being exhausted, worried, and downhearted, he did not accept his parents' advice but rather chose to vacation with his wife in Syria. There, they hired a limousine with a driver who would serve as tour guide fro all their site-seeing excursions throughout Syria. As the vacation progressed, the driver noticed that the Saudi Arabian couple was experiencing bitterness, pain, and grief. Having gained familiarity with the couple, the driver cautiously asked them whey they appeared to be so unhappy-was it perhaps because he was not conducting the tour to their satisfaction?

The couple confided to the driver that the source of their unhappiness was their inability to have children. The driver who was also a Moslem, then told them that in Syria the Christians, specifically the Orthodox Christians, have a monastery named Panagia Saidraya (Arabic word meaning Our Lady) and that many people who can't have children take refuge to Her miracle-producing icon. They go to the monastery and there they are given to eat, the wick form the lamp which burns before the miraculous icon. And then the "Mary" of the Christians gives them according to their faith, what they wish for.

Becoming excited, the Saudi Arabian and his wife asked the driver to take them to the monastery "Saidnaya" of "The Lady of the Christians" and said that if we have a child, then I will come back and I will give you $20,000.00 US and, I will give the monastery $80,000 US. So they went to the monastery and did as they were instructed. Later they returned to their homeland and after some time the wife was found pregnant. In a few months she gave birth to a charming baby boy. It was truly a miracle of Our Lady Theotokos.

Now, as soon as his wife gave birth the Saudi Arabian man wanted to return to Syria to uphold the promises he had made. Upon his return he called the same driver and asked to be picked up at the Damascus airport. But the driver was cunning and wicked and he persuaded two of his friends to go to the airport with him to pick up the rich Saudi Arabian man and to take his money and kill him. So they picked up the rich man at the airport and he, as they drove, without realizing that they had planned to kill him, told the friends of the driver that he would give them also $10,000 US each.

These men still not satisfied, deviated from the route to the monastery and went to a deserted place and proceeded to slay the Saudi Arabian man and to cut off his head and other parts (hands and legs) of his body into pieces. Blinded by passion and overcome by the horrific act that they just committed, they put the man's remains in the trunk of the car rather than just leaving him there. After taking his money, watch, and all that he had, they proceeded to find another deserted place to discard the remains.

Then on the National highway, their car broke down and stopped in the middle of that road. The three men got out to determine why the engine had stalled. Then a passerby stopped to help them but they, afraid that their terrible act would be discovered, pretended that they did not need any help. But as the passerby motorist was leaving, he noticed blood dripping from the rear of the vehicle and he called the police to investigate because the scene and the three men looked suspicious. The police came and they saw the blood under the car and on the pavement so they ordered that the trunk be opened.

Well, when the opened the trunk, lo and behold, the Saudi Arabian man lifted himself out, obviously and amazingly alive and in good health, saying to them "Just now this PANAGIA finished stitching my neck, right here (showing them the area of his Adam's Apple), after first stitching up the rest of my entire body". Seeing this, the three criminals immediately lost their minds-becoming like mad. The police handcuffed them and as they were being taken away to an asylum for the insane, the criminals started raving that it could not be possible that the Saudi Arabian man whom they killed, beheaded, and dissected could yet be alive.

The Saudi Arabian went to a medical facility to undergo examination by doctors and medical examiners who confirmed and attested that the stitching was done very recently, thereby validating the miraculous event. The stitches were, and still are, obvious. When the Saudi Arabian came out of the car's trunk, he had the appearance, literally, of just having been refabricated (put back together) to which he continuously confessed that they PANAGIA had rejoined his body and resurrected him with the help of her Son.

Immediately after this, the Saudi Arabian called his relatives to come to Syria and they all went together to the monastery of Panagia Saidnaya and offered up prayers, praises, and glorification, and instead of the initial gift of $80,000 US (which was promised), he gave $800,000 US to the Theotokos.

Today, as this man relates the details of that overwhelming miracle, he starts his narration with "When I was a Moslem this happened to me" this indicating he is not longer a Moslem, as neither is his family.

This miracle stunned with awesome surprise the entire Arabic/Moslem nation and all of the Middle East.

Re: Dismembered Arab Sheikh Raised from the Dead After Visiting an Orthodox Convent - newspaper
Here's some info on the church in Damascus, Panagia Saidnaya.

The word "Panagia" means “All Holy”. Usage The word "Panagia" is a title for the Theotokos (Mother of God/Jesus)

"Saidnaya" means "the Lady of the Christians"

Saydnaya- A Marian Shrine

Saydnaya in Syria is the second most important Christian pilgrimage in the Middle East after Jerusalem, in terms of the number of visitors.The increase in its importance and popularity is due to the numerous and unlimited miracles which occur upon the intercession of Mary, Our Lady, The Mother Of God - Theotokos.

Saydnaya contains an icon of The Virgin Mary and the child Jesus painted by St. Luke the Evangelist in the 1st century A.D. The Icon's name is "Shaghoura" which means "The Famous One".

The story of the church and monastery which were built in Saydnaya on top of a high mountain in Syria date back to 547 A.D.when the Emperor Yostinyanus and his army were camping in the area, preparing to fight the Persians. He spotted and followed a deer to the top of the mountain, where he discovered a badly needed water supply, a large spring of fresh water for his thirsty army. Suddenly the deer changed into a brilliant icon, and he heard a voice requesting him to build a church in honor of Our Lady.

The church contains several old and precious manuscripts and icons.
An interesting story happened when Saladin was fighting the Crusaders in the twelfth century A.D. His hungry troops invaded the monastery of Saydnaya and took possession of all food supplies and provisions found there. However, upon loading the provisions on horses' and camels' backs, the horses and camels refused to move no matter how hard Saladin tried. Eventually, he had to unload all food supplies and return them to their rightful owners before he could move on.

Another interesting miracle happened with my own grandmother who lived in Saydnaya in the early part of the twentieth century. Olive oil was a major food source for the nuns at that time, and the huge pots of clay were quickly running out of the precious golden liquid. No supplies were left for the nuns in that difficult year. As my grandmother was in the storage room investigating the matter, she witnessed the miracle of the filling up of jars with pure olive oil out of nowhere, which was indeed the hand of God saving the day and alleviating the suffering of the nuns.

Mansour Mouasher, the photographer who took the pics in the 7:23PM post, also has a gallery of his other pics of the Mid East. They're very good. Though you might like to see them too.

If the alleged miracle is true then the ex-Muslim and his family would certainly not want their identities revealed in any way for their own safety.

A Muslim may never leave Islam once they've taken the oath to Allah. If they do, the Koran exhorts other Muslims to kill them.

From the Koran: (Surat An-Nisa 4:88,89)

"....But if they turn back (from Islam), take (hold of) them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Aouliya (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them."

This verse means that if a person says the Islamic Shahada (creed): "I testify that there is no God but Allah, I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah," he cannot change his mind. If he does change his mind, he will be executed or beheaded as has happened many times in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and other Islamic countries.

After the alleged miracle the man and his family converted to Christianity. This gave them a death sentence where they live in Saudi Arabia where the Wahabi sect is in power. Wahabi's are in the extreme fringe of radical Islam.
