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.


Priest Eduardo Vincenzo Maria Gomez weeks before his tragic accident

“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. 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 .

  2. 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.

  3. 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:

    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.
