One of the great scholars once said, ‘If the kings of the world knew what was in our hearts (of faith in Allah), they would fight us for it.” Br. Babar,your iman and patience through this trial has been an example for all to follow. I pray that Allah (SWT) puts the Jannah in your heart in this world and grants you the highest level of Jannah in the Hereafter. Allah (SWT) will take care of you and your family, so do not worry for Allah (SWT) promises, “…And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, then He will suffice him…” (Surat At Talaq, Ayahs 2-3)

However, it would appear that injustice has instead prevailed. We continue to pray for Brother Babar and the whole family, and Insha’Allah the truth will be revealed for Allah is not unjust.

“Young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice]:
Be mindful of Allah and you will find him in front of you. If you ask, ask only Allah and if you seek help, seek help only from Allah. And know that if all the nations were to gather together to benefit you, they would benefit you only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you, and if they gather together to harm you, they would harm you only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you. The pens have been lifted and the pages are dry.”

Secondly, I am getting more concerned every day about where my own country is heading. I have in the past considered this home of mine to be one of the most just political systems in the world. Indeed I gave 15 years of my life serving this country in its armed forces, 3 years of which were spent on active service. Recently, whilst working in Bradford I saw at first hand the warmth and kindness of Muslims and was gradually drawn into this beautiful deen.
Since then I have become aware of the absolute negative attitude of the authorities towards the Muslim. Like others we are not all perfect but appear to be judged by infamous deeds from an insignificant proportion of extremism in our ranks, which may or may not be just. I am not qualified to judge these events and know that all of us will eventually be judged by Allah(SWT). I am not totally cognisant of the charges laid out for Babar Ahmad nor does this site address that. However, it appears to me that the British authorities cannot make a case against him, as I am sure they would if they felt he had broken the law, and they freed him. Therefore, if he has not been convicted of any charge, it is my understanding he is not guilty of any offence. What is really intolerable is how this so called democratic government, of the mother of all democratic parliaments, can accept an agreement with another country to hand over its own nationals to them without having to show proof of any wrongdoing. Furthermore, if what I have read is correct, it does not work the other way round! Is this true? Someone please clarify that point for me. So I am totally disgusted that someone who has been basically cleared of wrong doing can have this done to them.
Thirdly, I understand that the charges relate to funds being collected for the organisations fighting foreign aggression on Islamic soil. Am I right in believing that in the case of Afghanistan, it was not so long ago that the Americans themselves sent money to their anti soviet hero, Osama Bin Laden, to a C.I. A. Organisational Front which they themselves codenamed “Al Quaida – in English the Base” (does this sound like a real jihadi Arabic name? don’t think so). Funny how things turn around. The prime Minister has been known to have the odd cup of tea at number ten with other notorious and formerly classified terrorists such as Martin McGuiness of the IRA. Does this mean that in the future when other events take the world stage, that Babar Ahmad can look forward to a cup of tea with the Prime Minister and be offered a ministerial job? Well maybe not.
I am so shocked by the draconian laws and measurements, which are slipping into this land, that I feel I can no longer stay here and will be looking to move elsewhere where I know where I stand, even if the new country does not have democracy. At least I will know how I stand but will not feel persecuted and can lead a good and decent life in the servitude of Allah(SWT) amongst my brothers and sisters. I am embarrassed to be an Englishman!
May Allah(SWT) be with you Babar Ahmad and all your family and friends that are affected by this miscarriage of justice, may we as Muslims forget our cultural differences and stand united against these ridiculous measures and other injustices against our religion, the true religion.
Best wishes from your brother in Islam,

Why have the police team who tortured him not been prosecuted? Has Tony Blair’s govt lost its mind?
