Holy Land Foundation Trail Verdict - Du`a' Needed

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu 'Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, the Almighty. We ask Him to send His peace, blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad, his family, companions and all those who follow his way till the end of time.
On December 4, 2001 the U.S government shut down the largest American Muslim charity organization – The Holy Land Foundation (HLF). Since July 16, 2007 five HLF officials have been on trial in a Dallas courtroom. They were falsely accused of supporting "terrorist organizations" while they were actually feeding, clothing and educating the impoverished people of Palestine . For more information please visit and

The Muslim Student Association – West (MSA West), a coalition of Muslim student groups from across the west coast, would like to express their support and solidarity with those on trial and their families. After 19 days of deliberation, a verdict has been reached and will be announced on Monday October 22nd at 10am. We'd like to sincerely ask everyone to use these next couple of days to make du'a and supplicate to Allah, the Almighty, asking Him to confirm the innocence of these men, that justice prevail, and that they be returned home safely to their families. We have complete faith and trust that Allah will answer the call of those who call on Him sincerely. As He says,

"When My servants ask you about Me - I am indeed close (to them); I respond to the prayer of every supplicant whenever he calls on Me: let them, then, listen to My call, and believe in Me, so that they might follow the right way." (2:186)

Please spread the word about this issue. Use this blessed day of Friday and make announcements after Friday prayers asking everyone to make du'a (supplications to Allah).

We ask Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala (Exalted is He) to reunite our brothers Ghassan Elashi , Shukri Abu Baker, Mohammad El-Mezain (Sheikh Abu Ibrahim), Mufid Abdulqader, and Abdulrahman Odeh safely with their families, to grant them patience, perseverance, justice and victory. Ameen.

"No, We hurl the Truth against falsehood, and it knocks out its brain, and behold, falsehood does perish! Ah! Woe be to you for the (false) things you ascribe (to Us)." ( 21:18 )

Could you also make a prayer for our US troops and the Iraqi people? Please keep them safe and insure them victory against those who want to destabilize the country for vicious political and religious ends
