Letters From the Incarcerated

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the name of Allah, Most Graceful, Most Merciful.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous donation of the Submitters Perspective. We want to assure you that this literature will be made available to the Islamic population on the compound. The staff and Men here at Madison Correctional Institution are very grateful to you for providing these bulletins to enhance the spiritual growth and development of these men. Please keep Madison Correctional Institution in mind for any other materials you may wish to donate.

May Allah richly reward your efforts to ensure the spread of His word, especially to those who are presently incarcerated

As-salamu Alaikum:

As always I pray these few lines find you blessed with the grace and mercy of Allah.

I received your wonderful gift of Quran, Hadith and Islam. May Allah reward you for your good deeds. The

Final Testament has made profound changes in the way I worship.
Initially I experienced internal and external opposition in implementing a “hadithless” style of worship. But after a year with the Final Testament and Submitters Perspective, my level of spiritual enlightenment (submission) has increased dramatically, all praise to Allah.

I pray Allah continues to bless your efforts.

La ilaha ella Allah wah tahu la shari kalah [There is no god except Allah, and He has no partners]

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Diin-Allah

...I was very touched by the “Prayer of Submission” and I am not one to become emotional when alone. I have been here 12 years and looking at 7 more. As you can see though I have a new address. I consider them all temporary, even though it’s a possible seven more. However, insha-Allah if the address changes again in the next 90 days, I will notify you. If there is anything I can assist you with here (mainly legal and financial research), please allow me. Though I have a B.A. in radio-TV and film, there is not much I can do with that here. Please continue the dawah that you are doing with the avliya of Allah.

Wa alaikum Salam

Abdur Mateen


Truth will prosper in due season, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that there is no one greater than Allah, the Lord of the worlds.

As-salaam Alaikum


I humbly pray that all is well with my fellow Submitters. I write this letter today to thank you for sending me your monthly bulletin of International Community of Submitters. They bring great enlightenment into my knowledge of Islam. I ask that you please continue to send me the Submitters Perspective. Please keep the knowledge growing. May Allah be with you.

(Abraham and Ismail prayed together:) ...Our Lord, accept this from us. You are the Hearer, the Omniscient. Our Lord, make us submitters to You, and from our descendants let there be a community of submitters to You. Teach us the rites of our religion, and redeem us. You are the Redeemer, Most Merciful.
