A Message to the Ummah from Ustadh Abu Taubah

14 Dec

Alhamdulillah wa kafaa


From Abu Taubah to everyone:

As Salaamu ‘Alaykum wa Rahmatullah.

I’d like first and foremost to thank everyone for continuing to show support through these difficult times. And I would like to encourage and remind myself and everyone else to continue to be patient.

Recently I sued the prison for their treatment that amounts to torture and now it looks like they are retaliating against me. I have been placed into isolation again. This time with no writing utensils, all of my books have been confiscated (including my mus-Haf). They said that they would return it, but when, they don’t know. I have been placed under a general investigation. Along with this lawsuit against the prison, I have served the prosecutor, FBI and attorney general with a lawsuit. These are two civil cases that I have been implementing because of my religiously biased arrest and incarceration.

And I would like the people to write the two judges in these cases and encourage them to honestly investigate the allegations being made by these lawsuits.

There is an attempt on the government’s side to charge me as a terrorist. But I think it is clear to everyone what my da’wah has been from the start. This is to learn the Arabic language, the Qur’an and the ‘usulu fiqh so that you may learn how to apply the Qur’an. I think by now everyone should know how dangerous this idea is viewed by some non Muslims. I just want to reiterate the point: read at least a Hizb a day and try to understand it according to the basics of the sunnah. That’s it, that is my da’wah.

I may not be able to contact you all as much as I would like to, until this is all over. But it doesn’t mean that you are not in my du’ah.

Again I thank you all, over and over, [who] make this easier for me and my family.

Salallahu ‘alaa Muhammad wal Hamdulillah.

    Ameen thumma Ameen
    Why have you not posted about the twitter campaign on Sh. Nasr Alfhd. Is it because you are against Sh. ahmad?

      ..وعليكم السلام و رحمت الله و بركته

      No sister Sara, by Allah we love the Shiekh dearly, may Allah honour you and increase you in good. It is only that we are currently understaffed and are having to sacrifice some efforts as we address preexisting projects or requests from families and prisoners. Please ask Allah to give us Tawfeeq in these endeavors and to accept from us and our brothers, sisters and their families our striving.

      If you point us to a something regarding the campaign we will try to post something here and in other media as well.

    السلام عليكم و رحمة الله

    Would it be possible for you to draft a template letter containing the details of the Ustadh’s treatment in prison so that we can sign or personalize and mail or email?

      … وعليكم السلام و رحمت الله و بركته

      We are planning on drafting a separate Action Alert to attach to the letter. Insha’Allah we’ll have it up in the next few days. Also as far as we are aware as of the second of December the Ustadh was cut from all communication, so please keep him and his family in your
      sincerest adiyah.

    gazakum Allahu SWT khayr.
    This is the information:

    On Tuesday 18 December 2012 there will be an online Twitter campaign in effort to release the noble Sheikh Nasir al-Fahd as well as many other Islamic scholars who are languishing behind bars – we ask Almighty Allah to hasten their release.
    To take part, all you have to do is send a tweet and message of support (it could be anything you desire, like “Free our scholars from Saudi jails”) with the hashtag: #Free_Nasr_Alfhd at the following exact time: 5pm New York, 10pm UK or 9am Sydney. Please note, the Sydney time is Wednesday morning 19 December.
    For more details please see the banner below:

    Thank you.
