Bismillaah ir-Rahmaan ir-Rahiim,
18th September, 2012
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatUllaahi wa barakaatuh,
I would ask that this short piece be translated and spread around to the Arabic, French, and Urdu websites, and that it be printed out and passed around at the protests in the various lands in the coming days, in shaa-Allaah. The people need to know about this, because it exposes the true face of America.
The War on Salaah
Bismillaah ir-Rahmaan ir-Rahiim:
My name is Abu Talhah Zakariyya al-Amriiki (legally “Zachary Chesser) I am a Muslim prisoner in America, who has been arrested in the War on Islaam, the American Inquisition. I am in a unit which is known in the media and elsewhere as Guantanamo North, because it is used to house many of the Islaamic cases, and the only reason they even have non-Muslims in this unit is to prevent lawsuits over discrimination. What I am about to relate is part of the hidden war on Islaam being waged by the United States. They cannot possibly justify it as anything but an assault Islaam, because it has nothing to do with jihaad, politics, terrorism, or whatever word they want to use for what they supposedly claim to be fighting.
Yesterday, during the Maghrib prayer, a number of inmates and I were praying together. One of the guards came in upon us, and when we were finished he took down our names. He then went to write us all incident reports as a retaliation over the protests on behalf of the Prophet, sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. When they write us incident reports, they take away our ability to communicate with our families for long periods, and they do other things which are very painful for the brothers here. In this unit, they have banned Muslims from praying together, because they want to suppress Islaam.
This same guard is the one who wrote me the incident report for praying which was published by the Senate’s top counter terrorism advisor Seamus Hughes, and he has also assaulted a Muslim inmate, who has lung cancer and cannot even lift twenty pounds, by throwing a padlock at him while he was sleeping. Now he has come and he wants to sever people’s ties with their wives and children before the upcoming ‘Iid, all in order to defend a person for mocking our beloved Prophet, sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.
However, these anti-Islaamic policies which are a part of the American Inquisition are not limited to this one guard. In the year and four months I have been in Guantanamo North, I have received four incident reports for praying, and I have been sent to isolation twice for speaking about it in the Senate report which was published on me. I was also sent to isolation for trying to have a religious question answered. I spent three months in isolation and I have spent four other months without being able to communicate with my family due to being accused of praying. Now, I am likely to face another three months without communication with my family, just because I am fulfilling a basic obligation which every Muslim attests to.
I am not the only one who has gone through this. Many brothers have received incident reports for praying, rolling their pants above their ankles, fasting, and other religious activities. We do not engage in violence, drugs, or other things which the regular criminals engage in, but we receive the most penalties out of anyone for doing nothing but peacefully obeying our Lord.
It is not enough that they have thrown us in prison, taken from us our parents, brothers, sisters, wives and children. It is not enough that the older members of our families are dying without being able to see their children and grandchildren. It is not enough to lock someone in a small space for decades. No, they have to take our prayer, our fasting, our religious books, our copies of the Qur-aan, everything that involves serving our Lord… they have to take it.
Al-hamdu Lillaah, I will have a lawsuit against these people soon, although I am waiting to receive a fatwa about whether or not it is permissible, so at least when they reject our right to pray, unless Allaah wills, the whole world will see how their arguments against the prayer have nothing to do with security and everything to do with their hatred of Islaam. At the sister unit to our facility one of the brothers already has a lawsuit about to be ruled on, exposing that facility, so in shaa-Allaah I will have one to expose the people here shortly.
Please spread this message, and do not let the issue slide. Call on the real Muslim rulers to pressure these people to leave us alone in the worship of our Lord. In the upcoming protests, please carry signs demanding they let the Muslims pray.
And I praise Allaah, the Lord of all that exists.
