Christian Girl Burnt Alive by ISIS Tells Her Mother Before Dying in Her Arms: Forgive Them

After ISIS took over the city, they came to a house of Christians and demanded they pay them or leave. When the mother asked the ISIS militants to wait a few seconds because her 12-year-old daughter was in the shower, they set fire to the house. The young girl, who had horrible burns, told her mother to forgive them before dying. This story has gone all over the world.

She was faithful to the end.


May she rest in peace.

Oh that we could all die for our faith so bravely and with such forgiveness.May God forgive her murderers as she requested, (and her angel never forget their faces…)

This girl is beautiful. I know I would not have the strength to forgive like that.

God truly bless her, rest in peace.

This speaks volumes to the love of Christ for the world…love and forgiveness in the worst of times…Prayers for this mother mourning the loss of her daughter and all of our other brothers and sisters in Christ. Lord bless them with great courage. We pray for the coversion of many in this region.


Eternal rest grant into her, O Lord, and perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.

Canonize her now! :(:thumbsup:
