Born in Cairo , Egypt into a prominent Muslim family of Lawyers and Following in the footsteps of his father and uncles, he too chose to become a lawyer.
Through the witness of his best friend, Tamir, he experienced the love of Christ and made the decision to give his life and service to the LORD.
He began the mission to bring the Christian community all the same legal rights as the Muslim community in Egypt . He began a ministry which in just 2 years grew to 24,000 Christians. The Egyptian Government did not tolerate this and Majed wound up in the torture section of the Abu Zaabel prison in Cairo .
During this time in prison, Majed underwent severe torture for 7 days in the underground prison, everything from shaving his head and putting his head and hot and cold water, hanging upside down, being burned with cigarettes and the miracle of the attack dogs silenced to being crucified on the last 2 and a half days with a mixture of salt and lemon to anoint his wounds. All this is because of his new faith in our LORD.
He eventually escaped and on a whirlwind journey fled to Israel where he was jailed for over a year because they weren’t sure what to do in this circumstance. Legally he could not stay in Israel but if they sent him back to Egypt he would be executed.
Through the intervention of Amnesty International & the United Nations Majed was released from prison and became a free man in Jerusalem , Israel .
