An Appeal from Imam Musa

As-salaamu 'alaikum,

Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah was assassinated on October 28, 2009 in Detroit, Michigan, by the FBI. It is our duty at this time, as freedom-loving Muslims, to support Imam Luqman's family and community.

It is related by 'Abdullah ibn 'Umar that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, "Every Muslim is a Muslim's brother. He should neither harm him himself nor leave him alone when others treat him unjustly, (but try to help him). Whoever will fulfill the need of a brother, Allah will fulfill his need; and whoever will remove the distress of a Muslim, he will find a distress of his removed on the Day of Requital; and whoever will hide the shame of a Muslim, his sins will be hidden on the Last Day." (Muslim)

Masjid Al-Islam (DC) is now in the process of raising funds to assist our brother's family. Please send all donations to: Masjid Al-Islam Imam Luqman Fund / 4603 Benning Road SE / Washington, DC 20019. We will deliver this money directly to the Imam's family. Please resend this e-mail to everyone on your mailing list. For more information, please call me.

Imam Abdul Alim Musa
