In the 1980s, Nasser, a young Muslim paratrooper in the Jordanian army in Amman, displaced one of his vertebrae during a jump, and could no longer stand up on his feet. The doctors were able to do nothing for him. He was engaged to a young Muslim girl, a student at the school of the Sisters of the Rosary. The betrothed were both devastated. Nasser was sent to London where, after an unfortunate injection, he returned paralyzed for life. Back in Amman, the parents of the bride wanted the girl to break the engagement and Nasser himself agreed with them.

However, a friend of the girl, Sister L. of the Rosary, came to visit Nasser, and moved by the Holy Spirit, gave him a Miraculous Medal. Nasser kissed it and put it around his neck. Sister L. said, "What doctors cannot do, God will do, and he will heal you." That night, Nasser heard a voice within him: "Nasser, I am the Mother of Jesus, in His name, I have healed you, get up." At the same time, he felt two strong hands helping him up. He was cured. He awoke in the hospital bursting with joy and fully healed, to the amazement of the medical staff.

Nasser became a defender of Mary. Bishop Sinnaan, the bishop of Amman, was informed of the inexplicable healing and received Nasser’s request to become a Christian.
