In The Name Of God, Most Gracious, Most
We pray to Allah that you will receive our present concern as Muslims
striving on the foundation of Allah’s universal law and the
revelation Al-Kareem, Al-Quran.
We are Muslims; we place no title before or after. We are simply
Muslims. However, as a body of believers we stand as the El Tawheed
Nation. We have no formal school of thought. We follow the sunnah
of Allah and the ways of the prophets from the first to the last
and we make no distinction between one or another.
We stand firmly on the culture of the Prophet Abraham and we strive
in the likeness of his manner as Allah commanded the Prophet Muhammad.
And we submit to Allah in His universal order of divine truth.
By the grace and mercy of Allah, we have been blessed to understand
that the traditional hadith (written two hundred to three hundred
years after the death of the Prophet Muhammad) has been the cause
of wide spread division, inter-conflict, aggression, oppression,
outright assassination and bloody wars. We have come to understand
that these traditions have been like a cancer eating their way at
the Quranic fabric of the Muslim Ulemah, Muslim brotherhood and
the Muslims faith and trust in Allah and His supreme guidance and
universal application of the Quran.
We have come to understand that the traditions of the hadith barriers
is not the resolution to the multi-division of the Muslim Ulemah
and was never intended to be so.
We understand the tremendous courage
it took for Rashad Khalifa to bring forth the truth and stand unshakably
upon that truth for which he deserves respect and honor as a worthy
believer and servant of Allah. We pray to Allah that His grace and
His mercy, peace and blessing will be extended on the Day of Judgment
to our beloved brother, Rashad Khalifa.
El Tawheed nation is now being faced with the same task and difficulties
as our brother Rashad Khalifa. For we stand unshakable upon Allah’s
divine law. And as our brother, we too bring the truth about the
traditional hadith. We will not compromise the truth. For we understand
that the truth will prevail and that falsehood is bound to perish.
But there must be faith and trust in Allah and no fear in those
who would have us compromise the truth.
We have been attacked in prison by the traditionalist orthodox
sunni Muslims, slandered, and denied facilitation in the place of
worship to teach the “pure” teachings of the Quran and
Allah’s universal law. But we refused to be hindered. For
we realize that with every difficulty there comes relief.
We are reaching out to you our dear brother; for we have been
denied the means of the least available time to come together among
ourselves and to teach among ourselves. The chaplain (imam), A.S.
Muhammad, here at Avenal State Prison has used every available means
to block and hinder us in teaching the truth among ourselves, and
to those at the facility who wish to come and learn from the Quran.
This is only because we tell
truth about the traditional hadith and
its shady history. They will not even allow us to utilize rooms
in the chapel, which are not occupied. They say it will be sunni
teaching of hadith or nothing at all. We view such action as oppression,
compulsion and flagrant injustice.
We have been threatened directly and indirectly with multiple drastic
consequences if we continue to teach against the traditional hadith.
We have been vehemently warned that we will be placed in the “hole”
if we don’t cease our ways.
The chaplain/imam has boldly and erroneously accused me of being
an innovator and against the Prophet Muhammad because of the truth
that we bring forward against the traditional hadith and our unyielding
position in calling our Muslim brothers to the foundation of the
We have requested that the chaplain/imam allow us to respond to
the false allegations he has launched against us before the brotherhood.
He adamantly refuses to do so, yet continues to levy every despicable
and discreditable accusation against us without any Quranic basis.
We strongly believe it is incorrect and completely unjust under
the Quranic law to accuse anyone and not permit the individual or
the group of people associated with the individual to defend against
the charges. We trust in Allah in every conviction of our faith
that chaplain/imam A.S. Muhammad’s tyrannical leadership will
not triumph over truth and justice. Therefore,
