A staunch Muslim in Iraq who hated Christians had a very personal reason for wanting to learn more about Islam. Mahmod Mohammed* was happy to see the arrival of ISIS in northern Iraq in June 2014. Three months later, ISIS militants seized his home and turned it into a weapons storage site. When he tried to resist, they beat him and took his wife. He never saw her again. Because the militants had a Koranic rationale for everything they did, Mahmod resolved to learn more about Islam.
