In 2004, Al-Jamali visited Kanyakumari, the cape of South India, along with a close friend. While at the beach one day, tsunami waves, generated by by the massive magnitude 9.3 undersea earthquake off the coast of Banda Aceh, northern Sumatra, hit the shore.

“We saw them coming, but not thinking they would affect us on land, I made an effort to take photos,” he recalled. “Within seconds the waves battered the shore, wiping out everything. Thousands of people died.”

Al-Jamali and his friend were trapped in the waves, and the strong undercurrent pulled them under.

“Suddenly, I felt a strong and mighty man pick me up in his hands,” he said. “I really felt like a baby being carried by its mother. I could see blood stains on the man’s hands.”

The man told him, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me will live, even though they die; and those who live and believe in me will never die.” He then carried Al-Jamali to the shore, completely unharmed. Unfortunately, his friend was never found.
