Assalamu alaikum, It has been a few years since I have been on here, but I feel this warrants a post. A good friend and brother of my husband , Abu Taubah, is still in jail, without trial and his family needs our assistance. MashaAllah they have all been such a support to me since moving to the USA and are such wonderful kind, thoughtful people. They need to pay their legal fees as they have found a lawyer who is willing to take on the case, the courts have been far from helpful. We do not need to give a huge amount, if 20,000 muslims gave $1 each, they would be sorted. Far far more that 20,000 muslims have benefited from The Fiks family somehow of other. Even if you dont totally agree with what Abu Taubah says, he is still your brother in islam, he is still a teacher of Quran, his family and kids still have the right, as muslims to be supported by their brothers and sisters. The message from The Fiks family is as follows: URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Alhamdu-lillah there will be a very important court hearing for abu Taubah on May 30, 2013 at 9am. insha ALLAH. We are in desperate need of your assistance financially to hire legal help. After sitting down with a few attorneys other than the court appointed attorney who has basically been useless, we’ve found a Law Firm to take the case. They will be visiting abu Taubah on Thursday May 23 to speak to him in order to prepare for the court hearing. We need to raise money to pay for their services. They are asking for $30,000 to to start working with us and $20,000 if the case goes to trial. We are still talking with other lawyers to get a better pricing but the bottom line is, we need legal help in order to prepare for trial. Otherwise the court will eventually do whatever they please with our brother and teacher by sentencing him unjustly. May ALLAH subhaanu help us and make it easy for us to be victorious, ameen. We want to thank you all for your continued support and we pray that it is accepted by ALLAH ta’aala. Baarakallahu feekum for keeping us in your du’aas. Please share this information with other believers in order to increase the awareness. The information below is up to date if you would like to help towards this effort to raise money for legal services. ALLAH knows that you’ve been helping us with your funds and or your du’aas and you will see it insha ALLAH. We’re asking that you give as much as you can and make a greater sacrifice for the sake of ALLAH and his deen. Muslims around the globe have been unjustly imprisoned or killed while the world watches and refuses to speak out about it. Let us not allow them to continue that pattern by sentencing abu Taubah and taking him away from his family who is in need of his prescence at home to raise young muslims. I ask that ALLAH forgive us and you all for our weakness in imaan and that he make our feets firm in the deen, ameen. Jazaakumallahu khayran for taking the time to read this very important announcement. Wa salallahu ‘alaa sayyidinaa Muhammad wa ‘alaa aalihi wa saHbihi wa sallam. Wal-hamdu lillah.
