October 23rd hearing update
During the hearing it was confirmed that the government did spy illegally on Dr. Ali Al-Timimi and failed to turn those calls before the trial as required by the law. However, the judge surprisingly and mistakenly ruled against Dr. Al Timimi regarding these conversations in the following manner:

Crazy Day…

This morning my back was hurting A LOT so I called my doctor to schedule a mid day appointment.  Alhamdulillah, he was available to see me at 11:45 so I dipped out of work at 11:30 to get over to his office…..

Masha’Allah, my doctors a really cool guy.  His name is Dr. Shaykh and he’s old school like a mug (uses a typewriter, etc.) but alhamdulillah he knows his stuff (at least from what I can tell) and I trust him.

So there’s this Muslim brother at the office I know. Alhamdulillah he had accepted Islam a few years ago and whenever I see him we talk about the quran and sunnah; we even went to salatul jumuah together a few times. Masha’Allah, he has a very pleasant personality, always smiles and is well liked. We even played basketball together after work….

Yesterday the police showed up at the office and arrested him. My initial thought was that he had probably done a hit-and-run (get in a car accident and dont stop to exchange information) or something like that, but apparently he had been on trial over 14 years ago for a murder charge- and mind you that currently he’s only around 32 years old. During that trial there wasn’t enough evidence to indict him on any charges and he was let go. About a year ago they reopened the investigation and discovered new evidence, and from what I’ve read it says they have enough evidence to indict him on murder in the first-degree.

What should I think? He’s my brother in Islam, but if the charges are true, shouldnt he pay the time? SubhanAllah, its just so unbelievable- it almost feels like something out of a movie.  And I feel even worse because he just got married recently and was telling me how happy he was….

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The greatest reward comes with the greatest trial. When Allaah loves a people He tests them. Whoever accepts that wins His pleasure but whoever is discontent with that earns His wrath.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2396; Ibn Maajah, 4031; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.

قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم : ( إِنَّ عِظَمَ الْجَزَاءِ مَعَ عِظَمِ الْبَلاءِ ، وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ إِذَا أَحَبَّ قَوْمًا ابْتَلاهُمْ ، فَمَنْ رَضِيَ فَلَهُ الرِّضَا ، وَمَنْ سَخِطَ فَلَهُ السَّخَطُ ) رواه الترمذي (2396) وابن ماجه (4031) وصححه الألباني في صحيح الترمذي .
