By Tariq Mehanna, Written in Plymouth Correctional Facility Isolation Unit – Cell #108
Tariq Mehanna is a 27 year old
American-born Muslim Egyptian. Highly educated, he holds a doctorate in
pharmacy from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy. He is a devout,
tolerant Muslim who is not only respected in the local Islamic and
interfaith communities, but who also gives back to his community by
fulfilling the roles of brother, educator, mentor, scholar, and friend.
Tariq is described by those who know him well as humble, reserved, warm,
peaceful, charismatic, knowledgeable, and dedicated.
For several years Tariq has been a victim
of FBI surveillance and harassment. When Tariq refused to backstab the
Muslim community and be an informant for the FBI, they continually
threatened him before taking an opportunity to arrest him in 2008. While
Tariq was out on bail, FBI agents raided his home with an arrest
warrant on October 21st, 2009.
Tariq was arrested again despite the lack
of any new evidence since the prior apprehension. He is currently being
held in solitary confinement, facing accusations of aiding and abetting
terrorism. All of these FALSE charges have been fabricated by paid FBI
informants. We ask you to join us to support our brother until he is
released and home with his loving family.

According to the earliest sources,
compiled from the works of Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali, Ibn al-Qayyim
al-Jawziyya and Abu Hamid al-Ghazali. Taqwa is an abundant treasure, a
precious trait, an honourable substance, a great success. Those who have
Taqwa are the friends of Allah. Allah has promised them success at the
time of death and and deliverance from Hell on the Day of Judgment.

We present this study to those Muslim youth who are searching for a ray
of light in the deepest darkness that surrounds us, and who are seeking a
solution and a way out of the crisis that currently overwhelms us; in
the hope that it may be of benefit to them, in Sha’a Allah. (God
willing). The research for this work originally formed part of the
studies I undertook in Islamic Jurisprudence for the doctoral program at
Al Azhar University in 1392/1973. On the occasion of the Second
International Conference on Islamic Thought, held in Islamabad, Pakistan
in 1402/1982 on the subject of the “Islamization of Knowledge”,
material from this thesis was presented in a revised form.

Writing a will is a religious obligation
on every capable Muslim. It protects against many problems and conflicts
that could arise after a person’s death. This obligation is more
emphasized in the West: Failing to write a well-founded will may result
in the distribution of one’s estate in discord with the Islamic law, and
may lead to losses for some of the rightful inheritors. Because of
this, we have compiled:
1) Useful authentic information on writing wills,
2) Practical ready-to-fill will-forms, and
3) A brief overview of the Islamic law of inheritane.
Our hope is that, by this, we are
presenting to the Muslims in the West a much needed service, for which
we seek Allah’s accetance and forgiveness.
