Usama Dakdok, an Egypt-born Christian, first learned about Islam while in government schools in his home country (as does every other student in a Muslim country). He furthered his university degree education at the High Institute of Social Work, Egypt, which included the study of Sharia (Islamic Law).
Because Arabic is his native language, he discovered upon arriving in America in 1992 that the commonly used English translations of the Qur’an were full of misrepresentations that minimized its violent teachings as revealed in the Arabic text.
Having an expert understanding of Islam, he deeply desired to reach out to Muslims in America with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. So, in 2001, he founded The Straight Way of Grace Ministry which has a two-fold purpose: to equip the Christian church to minister to Muslims, and to warn all Americans about the deceptive methods being used by Muslims to lead so many into the cult of Islam.
For over a decade, Usama has traveled extensively throughout America and Canada sharing the powerful message of “Revealing the Truth about Islam.”
Usama holds a B.A in Theology and a M.A. in Missiology from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
