A Californian magazine published the results of a survey of over 600 ex-Muslims who now follow Jesus. “Although dreams appear to play a minor role in the conversions of Westerners, over a quarter of those interviewed emphatically confirmed that dreams and visions played a vital role in their conversion, and helped them in difficult times.”
The recurring white figure
“A follower of Jesus from Guinea tells of a person in white who appeared to him in a dream, calling him with outstretched arms. This sort of dream, in which Christ appears as a figure in white, is a frequent pattern in missionary work among Muslims,” according to the report.
A Muslim Malay saw her deceased Christian parents in a dream, celebrating in heaven. Jesus, in a white robe, told her “If you want to come to me, come!”. She realised that she had been trying to reach God for all her life, without success, and that God had now himself taken the initiative to reach her through Jesus.

“A missionary working among the Tausugs, the Philippines’ largest Muslim people group, reports that a number of faithful Muslims ‘saw Jesus’ in their dreams following last Ramadan.
