Iran: Update on Ismaeil Maghrebinejad


On 27 February, Ismaeil was given a two year imprisonment for "membership of a group hostile to the regime."


On 9 May after the judge requested a retrial, Ismaeil was given an extra year for "propaganda against the state." He was hoping for a shortening of the trial at least, but has unfortunately been given this news.


All of this is on top of an addition 3 year sentence that he was given in January.

Pray that:

The Lord will comfort and strengthen Ismaeil and his family despite the disappointment and grant them His peace

The Lord will give the lawyer much wisdom as he prepares for the appeals

The Iranian judiciary will acknowledge the insufficiency of the evidence for Ismaeil’s supposed “crimes” and acquit him in the appeal hearings

Those determined to prosecute Ismaeil on account of his Christian faith will be convicted of sin and repent of their wickedness
