Catholic Priest Wakes Up From Coma After 17 Months, Converts To Islam


Jakarta | A catholic priest from the island of Java in Indonesia who has woken up from a 17 month long coma has converted himself to Islam after the man claims Allah spoke to him and showed him “the beauty of the heavens”.

The 87-year old priest from Spain has lived and preached on the island for more then 43 years and is fluent in Javanese and various dialects of the different ethnic groups of the island and is a well known and respected figure amongst all religious groups of the area.

The man who has suffered a cardiac arrest while helping local volunteers to fix the roof of his own church and fell an incredible two stories high has managed to survive and come out of his coma, in brittle shape, yet a changed man.

“I know nothing of Islam. Never once have I read the Quran but God spoke to me and asked me to follow him to the heavens and the Holy light shone through my entire being and behold the golden gates of heaven appeared before me and God told me his name and it was Allah” told the newly convert to a journalist of the Kalimantan Press.

The man who miraculously suffers no spinal injury should be able to walk soon, admits the physician who took care of him at South Jakarta’s Metropolitan Medical Centre. “This must be the strongest 80-year old I have ever seen. His bones should be smashed to pieces” ponders Jim Won May, who has practiced medecine for over twenty years. 

His conversion to Islam took most of his church followers by surprise, but interestingly enough, already half of his christian followers have showed interest in converting to Islam. “If Allah is the true God, I don’t want to be misled in the wrong direction on judgement day. I trust Father Eduardo. We all believe in him” explains one of his followers.

The priest who is still under medical attention has already ordered the construction of a new mosque and his followers are already hard at work to find the funds necessary for the task. “We owe it to Father Eduardo for all he has done for us” comments one of the devotees of the old catholic church, that is now for sale.

  1. Who cares if he knows nothing of the faith, Subhan’Allah, he is giving some serious dawah, which is more than a lot of us who know the Quran can say. I support this man in his quest, and may Allah (SWT) guide him to the sirat al mustaqeem.

  2. This is how, Alhamdulillah when ALLAH SuBaTAALA want to give (HIDAYAT) RIGHT PATH to whomsoever he wants and it is possible at any stage of life.

  3. Chapter (24) sūrat l-nūr (The Light)
    We have revealed illustrious revelations. God guides to the right path whomever He wants. Translated by Mohammed sarwer

    We have indeed sent down (in this Quran) manifest Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, lawful and unlawful things, and the set boundries of Islamic religion, etc. that make things clear showing the Right Path of Allah). And Allah guides whom He wills to a Straight Path (i.e. to Allah’s religion of Islamic Monotheism). Translated by Mohsin Khan

  4. Allah can never appear in front of anybody unless they deserve to see him! Allah does not just appear in front of somebody. The highest thing you can achieve or the best reward is to see Allah. He is the most beautiful you can see with your eyes. Last but not least, if you see god that means you are dead. You can’t see god and be alive at the same time. And only those who deserve it will be allowed to see god and those of people who regret the most is the ones who didnt do good deeds to deserve seeing the face of Allah. May Allah proctect all muslim and bring justice for us all. Ameen

    • Easy there, he said:

      “I know nothing of Islam. Never once have I read the Quran but God spoke to me and asked me to follow him to the heavens and the Holy light shone through my entire being and behold the golden gates of heaven appeared before me and God told me his name and it was Allah”.

      Where does it say that he saw Allah? He NEVER said it. He said that God spoke to him and the golden gates appeared before him.

      Also “Allah” is the word for “God” in Arabic, that means all religious who talks about God in Arabic will use the word “Allah”. God said that he was God (Allah) in Arabic.

      Another thing is that if Allah wants to appear then Hi does it, everything is done by Allah’s will.

  5. lucky man !
    the proplem is that many Christians and Jews think we call them to be muslims so we can own the world …. In Islam the concept is diffrent … in Islam , we are asked to notify others about the message of Islam then its your choice ,if you accept the logic behind Islam, you win .if not , it is you choice …. that is all … this is why vast majority of muslims around the world rejects ISIS extrem concept .

  6. As the saying goes “thousand ways to Rome”, we might say “million ways to Islam”. I’m sure every convert to Islam has a unique experience leading them to Islam.

  7. Allah Does what He Wants and Doesn’t have to give account of it to anybody. Nevertheless, the Prophet Muhammed (salallahu wasselem) indeed saw Allah-u Teala, as he came very close to Him in the night of the, there again Allah Does what He Wants.

    pROPHET MUHAMMAD said..Verily, an ignorant person (ie a person who does not know about islam) who is kind hearted n sicerely charitable is loved by Allah more than a devoted muslim who is stingy.

    • sakkal abdelilah, in Islam is strictly forbidden to say something that Muhammed pbuh has never said. Prophet pbuh said that Allah will support any leader that is righteous and just even if the leader isn’t a muslim. Allah doesn’t love more someone that denies Him more than a muslim that worships Him as one and the only God but is sinful. Thus this doesn’t mean that Allah loves that leader more than a muslim. Also it contradictory to say “a devoted muslim that is stingy” because a devoted muslim MUST give charity and help others otherwise he/she can’t be devoted. – See more at:

  9. Bible 2nd peter 1/16- 21 please read

    For we have not followed cunningly devised fables,when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory.This my beloved Son whom I am well pleased.
    And this voice which came from heaven we heard ,when we were with himin the holy mount.( read more)..

    • Hey! just a question, do you know how many time the bible has been modified? And how many version of the bible is there today?

    • J puthen- .Christian have been deceived by Saul to worship Jesus as divine! Thats the classic case of evil deceiving the very elect and ignorant masses like you.

    • Mr Jeff, Paul might be one of the greatest evangelist, he didn’t coerce anyone to worship Jesus. He was in fact persecuting the church in the early years of christianity until he was encountered by Jesus Christ and thereafter he converted to be a christian and preaching the gospel with the zeal he persecuted the church. The church didn’t just grow but the testimony of the faithfuls spread the gospel abroad.
