He was a convert to Christianity from the Ahmadi movement within Islam. With his father in the U. Navy , he moved many times as a youth before settling in Virginia. Qureshi also studied Islamic apologetics and engaged Christians in religious discussions. After one such discussion with a Christian at Old Dominion University, David Wood , the two became friends and began a years-long debate on the historical claims of Christianity and Islam.

Being just a couple of years younger than him, I cannot help but think about my own life and wonder about the kind of legacy I would leave behind one day. One of the things about Nabeel that has deeply impacted me was how he faced death.
