Islam is the state religion and much of society is based on Sharia (Islamic) law. Converting from Islam to Christianity is not officially recognised, leading to legal and property problems. Anyone who leaves Islam to become a Christian is banned from worshipping at places allocated for foreign Christians. New believers are also pressured by their family and community to deny Jesus.

HOW WE HELP
