“When I first came back to jail, it was something I couldn’t come to terms with. I blamed Allah for leaving me to myself. The more I read and understood the Quran with it’s hadith, fiqh, and tafseer, the more a new world started to unfold. I stopped dwelling in the seen, pitiful, materialistic, misleading universe and instead started to dwell in the unseen world of Islam and soon I felt like I was in Jannah. Today I don’t feel like i’m in prison, instead I feel like i’m just basking in the Qadr of Allah and his magnificent plan. Everyday I reflect on his sunnah and acts. I just feel like it’s me and Allah. I feel like he is truly Al-Walee, the protecting friend.”
Let’s write the next chapter of American Islam together
We envision a time when all prisoners who are Muslim or are interested in Islam can soundly learn the deen & succeed once on the outside.
We believe that this is a key to the growth and transformation of the American Muslim community.
