“WHAT I SAW WHILE I WAS IN A COMA”

 

THIS DAY, ETERNITY WITH GOD KNOCKS AT YOUR DOOR!

I want to tell you a short story about myself and irrespective of whether or not you believe me, be sure and know that what I mention in the next several lines, are the truth, nothing but the truth, so help me God!

 

On November 6, 1996 I fell into a diabetic coma. At the time I fell into the coma I became totally incapacitated. I was placed in the “Emergency Section” of the hospital and this is what transpired.

 

For approximately the first 24 hours I could see and hear even though the Doctors and the Nurses was unaware of this, I saw how they fought with every ounce of strength, knowledge and good will to keep me from falling from the semi-coma into what is called a “deep-coma.” A deep coma is what medical science describes as “never waking up again.” For the almost 24 hours or thereabouts the doctors and nurses did everything within their own power but the moment came when the line on the monitor stopped beeping and a “straight line” began to flow from left to right on the monitor. I saw the doctors along with the nurses activate all of the various machines that they already had connected me to. The very last thing I heard was when one of the doctors said, “We have lost him!” The very last thing I saw was when the doctor pulled the white sheet all the way up to my neck and in what I can only describe as a last good bye, heads bowed, they turned and walked away. Those were the last words I heard and the last sight of any human beings and then it happened.

With my body laying on the bed, hooked up to all of the machines, I felt my body jolting and what came next, was me standing at the side of the bed looking at my physical body laying on the bed with the penetrating view of the white sheet drawn all the way up to my neck. It was from that moment that the events that followed next you would find it hard to believe, but for me it is not about who believes or don’t believe, the fact remains is that I do believe and now even two months short of twelve years, I have never stopped believing.

 

In a brisk of a moment I found myself going downwards through a very dark passageway and I came to this massive gate. The gate was widely ajar and I walked in. It was dark but not what I would call complete blackness. The place had a dark dreary look and it felt very humid. As I continued to walk I could hear people screaming, weeping bitterly, bemoaning cries and then off to my left there was this massive contingent of people who were hurting more than they could possibly bear. From where I stood to where they were, I stood there just staring at them and it seemed apparent that although there were no physical barriers, they were trying to come towards me but they couldn’t. I saw hands reaching out in a grasping manner and they kept on saying, come with us, come here! It was a plea for help. Unfortunately, I myself could not go any closer to them than I was, that too seemed like I was restrained from going towards them. The cries, pangs and pines got louder and louder and then it happened. A man in a white-cream robe, sandals on his feet, shoulder length hair came and stood on my right side. He stretched out his left hand and said in the gentlest of voice, “come with me, you do not belong here.” With my right hand I grasped his left wrist and I looked up to see his face, but I could see everything of him, but never did I ever see his face. As we began to exit, the people’s cries became louder and louder and they went from pleas to anger and began to chant you will never make it, you will never make it! The man whose hand I was holding kept on saying, very gently, keep walking and don’t look back, keep walking and don’t look back. Though the loud chants were dissipating, I could still plainly hear it. We walked through some sort of tunnel that was pitch-dark and finally we came out from beneath the earth and stood on top of the earth. At the time we exited the tunnel and came on top it remained very, very dark. There was a blackness about the darkness that I have not the words to explain it.

The man stopped and he said to me, look ahead of you in that great distance and you will see light, and when you see the light, that is when I brought you into this world. Where we are right now, is presently your age on this earth, forty six years, two months and two days. He continued, we will walk and even though the path is dark, you must look to your right hand and your left, and on the right are the good things you have done in this life and you will feel peace, relief and happiness, but on your left are the things you have done that was wrong and that will bring you, sorrow, discomfort, anxiety, but when it gets too much turn to your right for relief and strength. Along this journey which was picturesque all the things on my right that I saw seemed to have been etched in my memory, for I was able to recall every moment with no struggle in trying to remember, it just came back to me like it was happening at that very moment. It was a long journey, the path remained dark but off to the right and to the left everything was lit so that I could see, but the light never reflected as we journeyed.

The journey was long, very long, very trying, there were moment of total weariness and moments of unexplained joy. As we were getting closer to the edge of darkness and now I could see even more clearly, not too far off in the distance I could see light in a way that I had never seen before. The man said with the same gentle voice, the screaming, cries and pain you heard before you will hear again and they will say to you, you will never make it, you belong with us, don’t listen to them, don’t let my hands go, just keep walking. No sooner than he stopped speaking I could hear the anger and rage, you will never make it; you will never make it. Now, we got to the edge of darkness and I stopped. The man said, don’t look back, don’t listen to them, put your left foot into the light and then put your right foot. I placed my left foot into the light and I lifted my right foot but before I could set it down, someone threw a dark bottle and it broke with some sort of black liquid and I stepped on it. I look down and I saw blood, lots of blood, and the man with me said, nothing is wrong with your right foot, just keep walking. At that moment we were now in complete light.

The man stopped and I stopped but I was still holding his hand. He said “this is when I brought you into the world in innocence” I want you to turn with me but do not let go of my hand. So we turned and now we were facing the darkness we had left behind, except the darkness was gone. The man said, you see in the distance that is where your life is at this moment, so now that you have seen good and bad, right and wrong, we will journey back to where you are at the present time and you must look again on your right and on your left, for now the good will be on your left and the bad will be on your right. I said to the man, Lord, I know now what I must do, let me just run to where you met me and I know what I must do. The man said, I will not force you to hold my hand, and I will not hold your hand, but you should hold on to my hand of your own free will and walk back with me. For when we get to where I met you, father Abraham will take over the journey. He said if you let go of my hand and run back as you want to do, you will continue to fall all the days of your life and perhaps at sometime, you may never be able to rise, but if you walk back with me, revisit the right and the left, I shall make you strong and all that is my “will for you in this life,” you will do, “for I shall never leave you nor forsake you!

So, we began the journey again and again it was happiness and pain, sorrow and joy, anxiety and peace but I kept on holding his hand tighter and tighter. We finally got to where the man, who I then knew for sure, was Jesus. He just vanished and standing in front of me was Abraham. Let me stray for a moment and explain something to you, I am not an artist in the sense of painting or drawing, but if I could, I would paint a perfect picture of exactly what Abraham looks like. Now, journey with me once more!

 

Abraham said, we must journey my son and without being able to comprehend how it happened, what happened next was, we were walking on the seashore, it was beautiful, the sea was calm, the sun was bright. Abraham said, in the near distance we will turn right, I shall tell you when. No sooner he finished the sentence, dark clouds appeared overhead, the sea became boisterous and the waves stood about twenty feet in the air, the amazing thing is that it did not break the shore line. Abraham saw that I was afraid and he said “nothing will happen to you, you belong to the Lord.” I remained afraid and it was just minutes when Abraham said to me, turn to the right and as we turned we came upon a child, a little girl about the age of 14, she had on clothing that looked like it was made of animal skin, dark brown in color, she had on sandals, dark brown in color, he hair was loose with a length that reached mid-way down her back, she was of light brown complexion. She had a staff in her right hand and her right hand was stretched out and in the manner that she was holding the staff, it seemed she was blocking the entrance behind her. I looked up at the child, she smiled, she pulled in her right hand with the staff; the entrance opened and behind her is what I can only describe in one word, Heaven!

This Heaven is different than what is described in the book of Revelations. There were no mansions, no streets paved with gold, but what was in this Heaven was, people, people of all color, races, children, women and men, the only difference was, no one ever had even the faintest hint of age on their faces or body. In this Heaven there was no sea, but unbelievable beautiful rivers and streams, the grass was green everywhere, it was beyond pristine. All the people, children, men and women were talking, laughing, and their kindness to each other was incomprehensible. When we entered this Heaven some of the people were cooking and during the time I spent there Abraham spent all the time talking to me. It seemed apparent that I could see the people but they could not see me, and what was also apparent was, I could see Abraham, but the people could not see Abraham.

Abraham talked to me about life, about things that were going to happen and after many, many hours I exited Heaven without Abraham. According to my count this has now been the third day in the coma, but I couldn’t be sure. Then what happened next was, I seemed to have fallen into a trance and in that trance I saw President Clinton in the White House. He was doing things that he shouldn’t be doing and I also saw disaster ahead of us. It is not that I won’t, it’s that I can’t go into the details about the disaster and President Clinton. I saw many other things which I will write about in the near future but I need to exit the coma in order to reveal to you something that may be the most important thing I can ever say to you.

 

As I mentioned above, I fell into the coma on November 6, 1996 and I awoke on November 13, 1996. When I woke up the doctors were absolutely astonished, shocked may be a better word. The first thing someone said to me was, “You are a miracle man, you are lucky, medically, you were not supposed to wake up” After an exchange of a few words I requested to see my medical file and to be left alone. They brought my file and they left the room. I opened the file and specifically looked to see the records that pertained to the time I fell into the coma until I awoke. What I did see was that on the third day into the coma, the doctors wrote their medical opinion, and it stated, “It is impossible for Mr. Ali to wake up from that coma, because medical history has no record of anyone awakening from a minus zero blood-sugar coma.”

I fell into the coma on November 6, 1996 but I had cancer surgery scheduled for November 7, 1996 at a different hospital. I was diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer and the Oncologist and the bone marrow specialist had determined that the “root” of my cancer was lodged in the marrow of my spinal cord. They had told me that surgery removing the tumors (lumps) would not stop the cancer, but just slow it down. We had tried through hundreds of good-hearted people who wanted to donate their marrow to me, but we could not find a match. Thus, the decision to have the surgery without being able to replace the marrow was based on the fact that my white blood count had reached 17,500. This part about my cancer is important in order for me to put everything into perspective for you.

 

Thus, after coming out of the coma and knowing all that I had seen, even before medical proof, I had made up my mind that I wasn’t going to have the cancer surgery because I knew I no longer needed it. After three different sets of blood tests, my white blood count had fallen below the 5,000 marker. Subsequently, I was advised by medical people that I should have the surgery to remove the lumps in my upper left arm, my chest and my leg, to this day I refuse. I unequivocally stated that during the coma I had held the hand of God even though I did not see His face and I knew that divine intervention took place, but when I made that statement to the medical people, they said, if God did heal you, why are the lumps still there? I have said and will always say, even with every last ounce of breath, God left the lumps as a reminder to me.

Now going back to what I saw in the coma, I wrote an 18 page letter in which my wife, one friend and a Pastor read it. The letter was straight to the point about impending disaster. My wife did not want me to send the letter because she said, “They will think you are crazy and on the other hand, if anything should happen, they will blame you for it. My dear brother in Christ, Mike and the Pastor said to me, “You must do what God wants you to do.” So, my wife did send the 18-page letter early in 1997. She sent it Certified Mail via the US Postal Service. I received the confirmation from the US Postal Service acknowledging that the Justice Department did receive the letter. About a week subsequent to their receipt of the letter, I received a letter from the Justice Department and it was a short letter. They wrote, “Dear Mr. Ali: Thank you for your letter. We have read it and placed it in our files.” I can tell you that they did not throw it away, but the file they placed it in was perhaps the one that reads “Another Nut Case.” Three weeks subsequent to the letter about the impending disaster, I wrote 12 pages to the Justice Department about what I saw President Clinton was doing. Again, my wife opposed, the Pastor and Mike took their same position as before. The letter was sent. I got the confirmation and another letter from the Justice Department with about the same statement as the first letter they had sent.

 

I remember today as clearly as I did when the scandal broke about President Clinton and my wife had said to me, “Please do not dream anything about me, do not see anything in the future about me, just don’t even think about me!” And subsequently, the disaster that I wrote about did take place. Now, as I said before I can’t talk about that, but what I can say is that more than half of what I saw in the coma has come to pass, and the worst is yet to come. The world can avoid the impending disasters that lay ahead for all of us, but it will take the hearts of men, women and children to turn once more not to religion, but to God. I will stop here and just go on to two things.

 

First, I have sent you an enormous amount of spiritual writings. With God’s help and the help of a handful of people we have sent you everything possible that does not deal with anyone’s religion but Almighty God. God is not a religion, Jesus is not a religion. Look through the New Testament and find one place where Jesus embraced any religion, He did not! Look through the Old Testament and see if any of the Prophets or the people who followed God, embraced religion, no they did not. Religion is not bad, but its inception was by man and as such man manipulates for his own avarice, for mammon and to put fear into people, but God is not fear, God, love, truth and providence is “indivisible.”

Here is what I can tell you about Heaven:

   The glorified weep no more, for all outward causes of grief are gone. There are no broken friendships, nor blighted prospects in heaven. Poverty, famine, peril, persecution, and slander, are unknown there. No pain, distresses, no thought of death or bereavement saddens. We weep no more, for we are perfectly sanctified. No “evil heart of unbelief” prompts us to depart from the living God; we are without fault before His throne, and are fully conformed to His image. Well may we cease to mourn who have ceased to sin.

 

   We weep no more, because all fear of changing is past. We know that we are eternally secure. Sin is shut out, and we are shut in. We dwell within a city which shall never be stormed; we bask in a sun which shall never set; we drink of a river which shall never dry, we pluck fruit from a tree which shall never wither. Countless cycles may revolve, but eternity shall not be exhausted, and while eternity endures, our immortality and blessedness shall co-exist with it. We are forever with the Lord. We weep no more, because every desire is fulfilled. We cannot wish for anything which we have not in possession. Eye and ear, heart and hand, judgments, imagination, hope, desire, will, all the faculties, are completely satisfied; and imperfect as our present ideas are of the things which God hath prepared for us that love Him, yet we know enough, by the revelation of the spirit, that the saints above are supremely blessed.

 

    The joy of Christ, which is an infinite fullness of delight, is in us. We bathe ourselves in the bottomless, shoreless sea of infinite beatitude. That same joyful rest remains for us. It may not be far distant. Ere long the weeping willow shall be exchanged for the palm-branch of victory, and sorrow’s dewdrops will be transformed into the pearls of everlasting bliss. “Wherefore comfort one another with these words”:

  God gave me the strength to write about parts of what I saw in the coma, it is my hope that each and everyone of you will find rest for your souls, that when our time comes or the hour of our loved one comes, either they can say of us or we can say of them;

 

The Lord’s people shall also enjoy light in the hour of death. Unbelief laments; the shadows fall, the night is coming, existence is ending. Ah no, crieth faith, the night is far spent, the true day is at hand. Light is come, the light of immortality, the light of a Father’s countenance. Gather up thy feet in thy bed; see the waiting bands of spirits! Angeles waft thee away. Farewell, beloved one, thou art gone, thou wavest thine hand. Ah, now it is light. The pearly gates are open; the golden streets shine in the jasper light. We cover our eyes, but thou beholdest the unseen, adieu, beloved, thou hast light at even-tide, such as we have not yet.

My hands are washed from the blood of all those with whom I have been communicating, If at the end of your sojourner’s days you are separated from God, from hereon in, that is between you and God. Revisit my writings and you will see, I never once invoked religion, but all I sought to do is to guide you as God has guided me and that you “accept His free Gift of life!”  People reject the fact that God humbled Himself, came down and walked this earth, allowed Himself to be beaten, mocked, nailed to a cross and die for us, because people more often than not say, “God does not have to humble Himself” Look at it from this perspective, if you know your child were going to die and you could give that child your heart so the child would live, would you not do it? Thus, if we, a fallible and imperfect people can lay down our life for our child, how much more would our Father in Heaven do for us? One thing is for certain, God gave us free will, He will never retreat on that, so for the people who say, a loving God will not put anyone in a place called Hell, they are right, God will not put us there, but if we end up there, it is because we made the conscious choice to reject the fact that God did say, “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life,” and that He did pay a price that we could never ever pay, and that is He died for us so that we can have life and not just abundantly, but eternally.

 

May the Lord guide you in all that you do, may He cause His face to shine upon you, may He place salve upon your eyelids so that the scales that blind thee from seeing beyond this world would be removed, and that your spiritual eyes would be open from the things of this world that passes away, to the world that is eternally bliss.

 

God Bless,
