    Happy Birthday Rifqa!

    I wish you all the best for your future!

    Love & Greetings from Europe

    Very Happy Birthday Rifqa! Remain strong in the Lord as we continue to pray for you. I’m a youth pastor and I’ve never seen a young woman as dedicated to Christ as yourself. Romans 8: 28 says that in all things Gos works for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. You have that calling, and I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that God will deliver you from this and yours will be a powerful testimony to the awesome grace and power of God.

  3. Tom Bernas says:

    Happy Birthday, Rifqa . . .your patience in the Lord is a model for us all and hopefully will be rewarded with His great favor! We think of you and pray for you often, and will continue to do so. Peace.

    Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday to you, dear Rifka
    For months I have been following your story. As a woman I am so
    proud of you to have the courage to stand for what you believe is good and right for you. Women have a lot to learn from it in this age where they are so often denied the right to be who they really are. You are an inspiration and I thank you for that.
    I wish you the very best in whatever you do and above all I wish you to be safe all along the way.
    With love from Geneva, Switzerland

    HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RIFQA!! You have been through so much, yet have remained steadfast for Jesus. My church and friends and I have been praying for you and will continue to do so.

    Happy Birthday Rifqa! I have been praying for you and I pray that you will truly find that “everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for my sake, will receive a hundred times as much in return and will inherit eternal life.” Matthew 19:29

  9. Allen says:

    Happy Birthday Rifqa!!!
    Jesus is with you and was with you!!! You are free now, but not free from persecution; God told us “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” (2 Timothy 3:12 kjv)
    But may God bless you with the baptism with the Holy Ghost.

    Keep Jesus first and live for him; you’ll go far. Be a witness and reach the lost!!! Jesus’ return is very near!!!

    James 5:8 “Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.”

    Happy 18th Birthday, Rifqa.

    Take a year to recover in a Christian community and then apply to go to college.

    May YY bless you and keep you
    May YY make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you
    May YY lift up His countenance upon you and give you SHALOM!

    Always in our prayers. We are so proud of you, Rifqa.

    1st John 4 verse 4 …. the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world – don’t be frightened.

    love kate b and family xxx

  22. Fred McKinney says:

    Happy birthday, Rifqa! :-) I’ve been keeping up on your story via periodic messages on Facebook and been praying for you. The late contemporary Christian singer Rich Mullins (1956-1997) said it best — “Our God is an awesome God”. Your courage and your commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ, especially at such a young age, never ceases to blow me away, and what blows me away even more is how He’s protected you as well as healed you. Is the Lord awesome or what?

    With love,
    Fred & Rebekah in St. Louis

    Belated Happy 18th Birthday!

    “The LORD repay your work, and a full reward be given you by the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge.”

    Happy Birthday, Rifqa! God Bless You. Keep as strong as you are, you are very courageous. You will be rewarded in Heaven.

  36. taylor says:

    Rifqa, happy birthday. I’m not an ex-muslim, but I am someone who’s had to break contact with an insane mother and father, and I pray for you every day. (Heck, I’m close by, so I even called Children’s Services to see if I could foster you at one point.) I’m so glad this ordeal is finally over for you. I pray that God will continue to strengthen and heal you, body-mind-soul-spirit-will-emotions. May you be blessed and surrounded by a new family in Christ. I know how hard it is, but we’re all rooting for you!

  37. Steve Ferrel says:

    A very special and happy birthday to you Rifqa. Thank you for your courage and faith. The Lord is faithful.

  38. Mona M. Bonaparte says:

    Happy Birthday, Rifqa. You have been in my prayers for months, and now we celebrate the goodness and mercy the Lord our God has bestowed upon your life. The Lord Jesus stated directly: “…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.(John 10:10)” Thank Him for your salvation, and congratulations on your gift of freedom—enjoy it to the full.

  39. Beth A Blair says:

    Rifqa, I am blessed to call you a sister in the Lord! I pray that on this day and all following for the rest of your life you are blessed beyond belief. I ask the Lord to give you peace that passes all understanding to guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus, joy unspeakable and full of glory, and the treasure of friends to uplift you and bring you comfort and encouragement! Happy, HAPPY birthday to you!!!!

    Happy Birthday Rifqa, Although I was raised a Catholic I am also a Sri Lankan so I know the strict up bringing you have endured. Congratulations on all you have accomplished and I hope you succeed in the battle with cancer as well. Thanks for bringing to light a nasty truth that most people wont say about the islamic society. All the best for your future!

  48. Hello Rifqa,

    The Lord God is watching over you. Happy Birthday.

    I am so blessed to see you so full of His love, in spite of what you have been through.

    As I was praying for you Sunday(our church has been in intercession for you for the last year), I witnessed the power of God so strong that it brought tears to my eyes and my heart reached far in love for you. I believe that you stood up for Jesus and Jesus will stand up for you. I truly feel you will beat this cancer thing. God has put good people in your life to help you. Bless His Holy name.

    We have done our best to seek prayer for you from others in our area and I am blessed to see someone else in our vicinity cares for you. We are in Compton, Arkansas (very close to Kingston, Arkansas).

    Our church believes in prayer cloths for healing. We find this example in the Bible. Let us know if you would like one. People in our church have gotten healed, and people in our church have not gotten healed. I just know God heals. I have seen it and I have been healed of a documented brain tumor. I pray you know Him as you Healer as well as your Savior.

    Islam is something we are very concerned about. Most people are. We know your concerns are valid. We are still concerned for your safety. We will pray for the salvation of your parents and family.

    In Him,

  49. Feven says:

    A Scripture for you Rifqa:

    14 In righteousness you will be established:
    Tyranny will be far from you;
    you will have nothing to fear.
    Terror will be far removed;
    it will not come near you.

    15 If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing;
    whoever attacks you will surrender to you.

    16 “See, it is I who created the blacksmith
    who fans the coals into flame
    and forges a weapon fit for its work.
    And it is I who have created the destroyer to work havoc;

    17 no weapon forged against you will prevail,
    and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
    This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
    and this is their vindication from me,”
    declares the LORD.

    Isaiah 54
