“And they planned and Allah (also) planned, and Allah is the best of planners.”- Surah Aal-e-Imran: 54.
SubhanAllah, the more I read about this case the more I am amazed at the utter lack of justice this brother faces. InshAllah, I think I want to get more people on board with the letter-writing campaign to support his re-sentencing, which was initially set at 30 years of imprisonment. The Qadar of Allah (swa) is supreme as the ayah above so clearly states. May Allah (swa) make this injustice of Br. Ahmed Abu Ali a means for his purification and may his ranks be raised in Jannah! Ameen.

A beautiful recitation of the last few ayahs of Surah Al-Furqan by Ahmed Omar Abu-Ali.
