"People before us passed us this Baton (Islam)," explains Imam Zaid, "and in the 20th century it was a hard leg of the race.... it was difficult to be a Muslim. But despite all the hardship, that baton was put in our hand... are we going to drop it or are we going to pass it on?"
InshAllaah, Imam Jamil Al-Amin will be 74 years of age on Oct 4. Please keep him in your dua's(prayers). May Allaah grant him good health,grant him exoneration and return him to his family, community and friends.
