Usama Dakdok was born in Egypt and raised in a Christian home as the son of a Baptist pastor. He became a Christian at the age of 11. Going through Egyptian schools Islam was a mandatory subject. He furthered his knowledge of Islam by studying Islamic law in college. He came to the U.S. in 1992 and several years later in 2001 he founded the Straight Way of Grace Ministry. He travels throughout the United States equipping the saints to be effective witnesses of Jesus Christ to their Muslim neighbors as well as ministry to Muslims directly. Usama has conducted a full comprehensive English translation of the Qur'an and he has recently released a two-volume set of books, "Exposing the Truth about the Qur'an: The Revelation of Error".
This Crosstalk was an open forum program that allowed listeners to obtain the truth about the Islamic faith from an expert on the topic. Questions asked included:
--Where does Al Qaeda fit in with the two groups of Muslims, namely
the Shiites and Sunnis?
--What is the movement in America known as "Chrislam"?
--Why does the Allah of the Qur'an seem to have the same attributes
as Satan in the Bible?
--Muslims have a tradition known as honor killing. Why don't we
hear more about these deaths in America?
