Ahmed was born in the province of Babylon in Iraq, in 1984. Starting from 2006 he studied mathematics at the university where he met Ameena. The following year they got married and the first two children, Fatma and Hassan, arrived. Since university Ahmed – from a Muslim family – has always felt a strong attraction for Christianity. The free and sincere dialogue with some Christian friends at university and with his Catholic neighbor has increased this great desire in him, a desire that his wife and his family have always shared. His big opening towards Christianity and his work for an American oil company made him feel in life danger so that he was forced to escape.
