Islam or Prislam The Choice is Yours in an FCI

I am not a criminal so being sent to a Federal Correctional Institute aka a medium security federal prison was a CRAZY experience for me in the beginning of my bid. I had never been convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony in my life, needless to say I was not used to being around the criminal community. (really it is a community with it's own codes and rules)

My Ex Cellie


Asalam 3leikoum wr wb

Alhumdulillah I was blessed to become cellmates with honestly one of the finest people I have ever met in my life. This man spends all his time studying what he sees as beneficial knowledge and helping any inmate that has a drop of discipline and self respect. I met this gentleman while he sat in the chapel watching Sheikh Hamza Yusuf videos. Subhan'Allah though he is not a Muslim he enjoys Sheikh Hamza and Khalid Blankenship. He has a vicious workout regiment and LOVES to study neurosciences. I only did a 27 month bid, my buddy here has a life sentence, and prison is a very grim place.
What is the point of me typing this post? Well, first of all he was my "big homie" meaning he was like my Consigliere. Second of all he is a true friend and an example of a very fine human being EVEN while being given an elbow (a life sentence). I am requesting that some of the intelligent brothers on my list become his pen pal or maybe try to have Sheikh Hamza contact him (my cellie did send him a letter before). Perhaps you can even send him reading material on neurosciences, cognitive linguistics, he read Minhaj Abadeen by Imam Ghazali r.A and likes him and Imam Muhasabi as well. I can no longer contact him or be in correspondence with him because my terms of probation forbid it. If you however are interested in cheering him up and prepared for his clever conversations, please inbox me and I will give you his contact info insha'Allah. May Allah reward you all with 'His' 'Mercy' for the mercy that you have shown humanity.
Barak Allah Feekoum,
Bro Yousef al-Khattab
