    Default Post Your Message of Support for 'Ali at-Tamimi

    One of the most saddening things constantly on my mind is 'Ali at-Tamimi and his case. Besides the sheer injustice of the whole thing, the dismal state of the da'wah scene in America makes one realize exactly how valuable Dr. 'Ali was in sustaining the presence of true Islam here. 'Ali would travel across the world to present and teach what others now charge big bucks for simply because this was his passion, and because Allah placed him on Earth as a source of benefit.

    Unfortunately, this source of benefit is now spending the rest of his life in an American prison cell (I ask Allah to change that), and as 'Umar Lee eloquently pointed out, "nobody gives a damn."



    While his appeals process takes its course, our options are limited as to how we can help. First, the most powerful force is supplication. Second, we can find the ways to send financial assistance to his legal team. Third - and this is the more immediate relief that we can provide - we can send him letters to show our support and help relieve his distress. I won't list all the narrations about relieving your brother's distress.

    What I will say is that he is no ordinary prisoner.

    He is one of our scholars.

    He is someone we all knew of.

    He is someone who cared about us.

    He is someone we all benefited something from, whether in person or through a recording.

    He is the victim of perhaps the greatest injustice a Muslim in America has been afflicted with.

    He is in a position where a message from the outside world can turn a depressed mood into a happy one.

    Let's make this a nice, long thread.

    Background:
    Dr. Ali Al Timimi is an American of Iraqi heritage. He was born in 1963 and raised in the Washington DC area. He received his doctorate in computational biology on the topic of "Chaos and Complexity in Cancer” and holds undergraduate degrees in both Biology and Computer Science.



    Al-Timimi also studied religious studies at the Islamic University of Medina where he benefited from the great Islamic scholars of Medina. Due to his passion for reading and research, he progressed quickly in his studies and became one of the few Muslim experts in the US in the field of Islamic Theology and Philosophy.



    For over 15 years, al-Timimi has delivered hundreds of Islamic lectures and workshops locally and around the world. His CDs, tapes, and books are sold and freely distributed over the Internet to thousands of people.




    The FBI raided Al-Timimi’s house in March of 2003. The government mentioned him in the Paintball indictment as co-conspirator number one. As a result of the media attention, Al-Timimi lost his job and was not able to find another job. After a long waiting period, the government indicted him in September 2004, almost one and half years after they raided his house.



    In an 11-count indictment, part of a government case in which 11 men were charged in 2003 as part of a "Virginia jihad network”, prosecutors portray Al-Timimi, 40, as the person who induced or motivated young men from the local area to join the Taliban. Such motivation constitutes 'material support' under the current 'anti-terror' laws.



    Dr. Al-Timimi was not indicted as a conspirator. However, he is facing serious charges that carry life sentence.

    La ilaha illallaah...I almost finished my letter and then my firefox crashed and I've lost it all. Subhanallah, Allah had not decreed that I write to the Sheikh tonight, and inshallah I'll do so in the morning.

    Excellent thread.

    Is it to be posted here and then delivered to the Shaykh?

    I would like an email too. Not the public forum, if possible.
