As-salaamu'alaikum and Ramadan mubarak!
I am so pleased to share this update with the many individuals who supported our effort to campaign for Imam Jamil to receive medical attention and to be transferred to a federal medical center. I have heard from Imam Jamil who has reported that he indeed was transferred on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, from the Florence, Colorado ADX to Butner FMC, in North Carolina. He would like to express his deep appreciation for the support he has received from individuals who made calls, signed petitions, attended meetings, wrote letters, offered public comments, and galvanized others to take action.
Within this past week, the Imam has had extensive examinations, from "head to toe." Additionally, this morning--July 23, 2014--he had the bone marrow biopsy. Although we will not receive the results for another two weeks, we are encouraging people at this point to continue sending letters and cards to the Imam, while he waits to receive the medical results.
I do intend to send personal letters of appreciation to individuals in the hope that I will not miss thanking those who made a difference in this campaign. Together we demonstrated that there are those who will see an injustice and act to expose and correct the wrong.
I also wanted to share that Imam Jamil has been able to keep his fast during Ramadan, which is yet another example of his strength and faith. May Allah continue to guide him and strengthen him.
Send letters and cards to:
