The Cost My Life on a Terrorist Hit List by Ali Husnain A Review

Born into a prominent Shia Muslim family in Pakistan, Ali had it all—prestige, security, wealth, social status. The Cost is the extraordinary story of his dramatic encounter with Jesus that would change everything.

That life-altering choice to follow Jesus would turn Ali from a typical teenager into a target of a terrorist organization based in his hometown—a target they would soon act on.

The Cost is the riveting and remarkable journey of a young man who left everything behind to follow the one thing he knew to be true. Through excommunication from his home and family, near-death experience, a miraculous healing, and a cross-continental chase for his life, Ali's faith sustained him while also compelling him to bring the gospel to Muslims—no matter the cost. This modern epic is a must-read for anyone who wants to be informed about the state of Christian-Muslim relations today, and inspired by just how much a single light in the darkness can make a difference.

Ali Husnain (name changed for security reasons) is a young refugee evangelist living in the UK. Ali plans to return to Pakistan, despite the fatwa issued against him, with the conviction that God is calling him to build a medical facility in his home town and preach the gospel with the very men who tried to kill him as a teenager.

 J. Chester is a writer living in England. He has written widely on international development, social justice and has a keen interest in bringing new stories to western readers

  The Cost My Life on a Terrorist Hit List by Ali Husnain is an amazing story. It is a true story of a young man who went to the UK to visit his family and became a Christian. He had an encounter with the Lord. He was stabbed and left to die because he talked about the Lord. He would have died if Jesus didn’t touch him and heal him.
  All through this book you read about the things his family and friends went through because he belongs to the Lord now.
  He had everything before he came to the Lord, but afterwards he lost all power, fame and fortune because he went back on the Muslim tradation.
  He was put on a hit list and by the grace of God he survived and escaped several times. It is an amazing story that will really show you at what depths some Christians in other countries/cultures have to endure for following Jesus.
  Highly recommended. This book is full of faith and action. Must read for all.
