Bismillaah ir-Rahmaan ir-Rahiim,
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu,
For those who do not know me, I am a prisoner in America who was arrested for providing support to Harakat Shabaab al-Mujahideen in Somalia, threatening the creators of South Park for insulting the Prophet, salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, and for soliciting others to leave empty packages in public places to tie up law enforcement and bomb squads. In shaa-Allaah I am not going to comment on any of these things, because my case is not fully resolved despite my pleading guilty to them.
However, I can mention that the government here gave me 25 years as a sentence for these things, and in exchange for my guilty plea, they agreed not to give my wife any jail time so long as she left the country. She was charged with making a false statement to a federal agent, for saying I was not trying to go to Somalia, a charge which could have carried eight years.
Had she gone to trial, she could have been facing the equivalent of life in prison for such things as allegedly driving me to New York, using a mailing address on a passport form instead of a living address, and some things related to my charges on the South Park thing (even though I plead guilty to five years on this issue, the charges which were considered by the government would have totaled about eighty years for this one issue).
Had my wife gone to jail, even for a short time, our son Talhah would have been given to a Christian family, so we both plead guilty to prevent this. Despite these efforts my son is with my wife’s mother who is a non-Muslim, but in shaa-Allaah she should be bringing my son to my wife in Jordan soon.
Please make du’a for this. My son is one and a half years old, and was born shortly before Fajr on the day of ‘Arafah, 1430 H, wal-hamdu Lillaah. Al-hamdu Lillaah, one might think that these are all great difficulties, but these experiences teach us patience, and the Prophet, salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, has said that this is the best gift one can receive.
