Faith helped Glasgow stabbing victim to forgive his attacker, “I forgave him already”

Glasgow stabbing attack in a city hotel on 26th left six victims. One of them was  Max Aubin.

Badreddin Abadlla Adam carried out multiple stabbings in Glasgow

He remembers the terrible experience when the attacker, Badreddin Abadlla Adam, called him over and stabbed him twice.

I heard the guy (Adam) say ‘hey you’ and I was surprised because it was the first time he had talked to me. He didn’t talk to anyone. He said ‘Can I see you?'”.

“It was real quick, he slapped me, I started to panic and he started to stab me – two seconds, so quick,” Aubin explained.

“I felt something on my body but I didn’t see the knife. I went to go to the ground but he grabbed my t-shirt and tried to stab me again.”

“He stabbed me on both sides. I didn’t feel pain but when I saw the blood I realised he had stabbed me.”

“When I saw my blood I thought I would die. My eyes wanted to close. But in my mind I thought, if I close my eyes I will die, so I fought to stay awake.”

Faith that helps to forgive

Despite the hard moment he lived by the attacker, Aubin says that his Christian faith helped him to pray for the life of this man and also to forgive him.

“I thank the Lord every morning that I am alive. It was just a bad day. He is dead but I prayed for him. It wasn’t him, I think maybe he was sick. We have to forgive him. I am alive and once the doctor said I would be okay, I prayed for him.”

“I forgave him already.”
