Faith Behind Bars - Shia Islam In American Prisons

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is a must watch documentary! SubhanAllah, may Allah protect and bless these people and their families. Indeed they are true followers of the ahlulbayt A.S, more than I will ever be. May Allah continue to give them baraka and strength to do what they are doing. It is these types of people who are truly getting the world ready for the Imam A.S. SubhanAllahI pray that all those in prisons inshAllah find the truth and become better human beings and solve all their issues inshAllah. Even in prisons the wahabi/salafi are spreading misinformation and lies about Shia Islam in Prision....May Allah swt guide them.

 

After a life of crime, Mateen at a young age discovers Shia Islam whilst serving time in one of the harshest American prisons. Meanwhile, Ibrahim rediscovers Shia Islam whilst growing up in the harshest ghettos of Washington, D.C. This is the amazing story of how they came together to begin their mission of spreading Shia Islam through American prisons. Simply unmissable.

 

(wasalam)

You know, people always complain how we Shias dont have any books translated and what not, but I think it is far from the case. May Allah bless our scholars beyond infinity and may Allah raise them with our Prophets and Imams A.S inshAllah. They are and have done so much for us. Without them we would not be where we are today. They have saved countless lives whether be it in faith, philosophy, social, economic, or political knowledge. Videos like these prove the significance of our scholars and our deen. SubhanAllah, when they spoke how they received a letter from a man doing life in jail, how he was bought to tears when he read the story of Imam Hussain A.S and how he learned about its significance and the purpose of our Imams, and that he wanted to learn more about this faith and to struggle and change even at that stage of his life.. Like can you fathom that? A man serving life for God knows what, yet in his heart, the ahlulbayt a.s even then!!! resonates with him. It is indeed haq that Allah swt has innately given us all the truth and goodness.

May Allah bless them, but don't you think al-Kafi should have been translated fully ages ago, and some of the hadith books of the older scholars, a lot of them should be fully translated by now?
