“O ye who believe! Seek help with patient Perseverance and Prayer: for Allah is with those who patiently persevere. And say not of those who are slain in the way of Allah: ‘They are dead.’ Nay, they are living, though ye perceive (it) not. Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere—who say, when afflicted with calamity: ‘To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return’—They are those on whom (descend) blessings from their Lord, and Mercy, and they are the ones that receive guidance.” (al Baqarah, 2:153-157)

“Say: ‘Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector’: And on Allah let the Believers put their trust. Say: ‘Can you expect for us (any fate) other than one of two glorious things—(martyrdom or victory)?...” (al Tawbah, 9:51-52)

The Prophet of Allah (saw) is reported to have said: “He who equips a warrior in the way of Allah (is like one who actually) fights and he who looks after the family of a warrior in the way of Allah in fact participated in the battle.” (Muslim)

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “Who sought martyrdom with sincerity will be ranked by Allah among the martyrs even if he died on his bed.” (Muslim)

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah, nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihad, died the death of a hypocrite.” (Muslim)

If we didn’t try a little to support our brothers and their families, then we should certainly be regarded as munafiqs (hypocrites). We feel sorry for the little that we can do. We were not Muslims following the Sunnah during Malcolm’s time, but now, we understand our duty to our martyrs and our leaders who’ve been unjustly jailed and isolated. On February 21, 2010—the 45th anniversary of the martyrdom of Malcolm X—help us help them and their families! For those who love and understand the importance of this cause, but will not be able to attend, please send your contribution to: Masjid Al-Islam / 4603 Benning Road SE / Washington, DC 20019. Your donation is tax-deductible. Our Tax ID number is: 94-3062482.

P.S. For those who will be attending, join us in also celebrating our newly opened center of strategic planning and work in Washington, DC: the Islamic Institute for Counter Zionist American Psychological Warfare!

* Dinner will be served. *
