Nabeel Qureshi's wife commits to continuing his online ministry

The wife of late American Christian apologist Nabeel Qureshi has promised to dedicate her efforts to continuing her husband's legacy through his online ministry.

Michelle Qureshi announced the plans this week in a YouTube video which was shared on Nabeel's social media pages.

Nabeel, who was a former Muslim turned New York Times best-selling Christian author, died in September at the age of 34 after a yearlong battle with stomach cancer.


In the video, which has almost 91,000 views, Qureshi first talked about the challenges of the administrative duties she's had to handle following the death.

She said she's happy that Nabeel is "in a better place" and doesn't have to "strive or work for sharing the Gospel because everyone in Heaven is seeing Jesus face-to-face".

Qureshi added: "But then that leaves us here. We are still here. People still need to hear the Gospel. Ministry still needs to continue."


"In this video, my main point to you is to let you know that I am committed to ensuring the continuation of Nabeel's ministry.

"I don't know exactly what that's going to look like but I do know we will take his resources and put those online in video form and share them through the social media and the websites that he had opened previously - Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Patreon."

Qureshi said although it is an exciting prospect, she knows it will be challenging because her number one priority is to take care of their daughter.

However, she said people are gathering around her to make sure this happens and asked people to partner with the ministry "as the Lord leads".


Nabeel stopped his speaking engagements with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries when he learned of his cancer diagnosis in 2016.

Instead, he started an online ministry which was comprised of video blogs about his journey with cancer, as well as about the foundations of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism and science.
