Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
Al-Hamdulillahi Rabbi A’lamin
As Salamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu
Dear Amma, Abba and Family,
I just got your mail today. How are you all doing? Al-Hamdulillah, I’m doing good by the Grace of Allah Azz Wajaal. I pray to Allah that you all are doing good by His Care and Ni’mah.
This is our 19th day here so far. Last week they moved in the other Muslim from Marion who came here with me. Now we are cellies. Al-Hamdulillah. We used to be on the same range at Marion too. SubhanAllah, how amazing is the Decree of Allah, he arrived at Marion just a day before I did, and when Allah decreed, we left on the same day. Wal-Hamdulillah.
We go out for recreation on the weekdays for 1 hour. We just played ‘hand ball’ today. It’s when you hit the ball with the palm of the hand to hit against the wall, taking turns, one hit a turn.
As for the food here, by the Grace of Allah, Al-Hamdulillah, it’s better than Marion. We’re also allowed to get commissary, Al-Hamdulillah.
I’ve tried to find out about how long we’ll be here but they don’t know. They (prison officials) have mentioned that they think we aren’t going back to Marion, and Allah knows best. Anyways, from what I’ve heard is that Marion CMU is supposed to be a temporary “program” place or something, where after a period of time, they transfer the prisoners somewhere else. May Allah, our Rabb, put us in a place much better than Marion.
Indeed, He is the best of the Hakimin, Judges, Hasbiyallahi wa Ni’mal Wakil.
Al-Hamdulillah, here Allah has given me much time to read the Quran. Don’t send me any books- I don’t know how long I will be here, so wait until later, inshaAllah. May Allah, our Rabb, take us out of this place and bring us to a place much better than this, sooner and swiftly. Indeed my Rabb is Qareeb Mujeeb. Give my salams to everyone.
Wa Salamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu
