Dua for our sister

Dua for our sister

(Left: Pre-2002, Right: Recent picture)

Our sister Aafia Siddiqui (May Allah assist her and protect her) had been held prisoner for many years without trial in the notorious Bagram prison in Afghanistan. She was being held there as a ghost prisoner known only as ‘Prisoner 650’. Her screams reached the ears of many ex-inmates and visitors to the prison, who all claim that the screams still haunt them today.

From the accounts of ex-inmates who state that our sister was being held in Bagram prison where she was gang raped and tortured to such an extent that she lost her senses.

One ex-inmate described her condition as follows:

“there is a woman from Pakistan. She has stayed for years in solitary confinement in Bagram prison among more than 500 men. She goes out to the bathroom, led by a non-muslim man, placing his hand on one of her shoulders and the other hand on her back, and her hands and feet chained together, and she is treated exactly in the same way as a man, even in her clothing, the red suit that the brothers wear in Guantanamo.. This woman stayed there until she lost her mind, until she became insane, hitting the door and screaming day and night, and those ones all they do is make it worse by calling her by her number 650, that’s the number she had in the Bagram prison. And she didn’t find a person to talk to. She is in solitary confinement, in front of her is a solitary room belonging to a man, on her side is a solitary room belonging to a man, and next to her is a solitary room belonging to a man. She didn’t find a woman to talk to, she only sees men. So the woman lost her reasoning and mind and she stayed in this condition for many years, probably no one knew anything about her”

And now after many years she has suddenly reappeared from almost out of nowhere, with the ‘devils from amongst mankind’ with their distorted and twisted lies claiming that she was on the run and has now been captured. Our sister who has been through so much pain and suffering has now been transferred to a prison in the US and is appearing in court to face ‘the long arm of American Injustice’.

Our sister, the mother of 3 children whose whereabouts are unknown, has had her honour and dignity stripped, her sanctity violated. Our sister has been humiliated and disgraced. She is the very woman who safeguarded her chastity out of the fear of Allah, but the beasts did not even spare her in this. They have treated her worse than animals, in fact even an animal is given more rights.

A sigh of helplessness…

We all might feel helpless to do anything for ‘Our sister’, but one thing that we all have the power to do is to raise our hands before Almighty Allah and make a dua from the deepest recesses of our hearts, from this moment on in all our prayers until she is freed from captivity, and pray for ‘Our Sister’ Aafia Siddiqui, that Allah(swt) frees her and other innocent prisoners like her from the shackles of oppression, from the tyranny and injustice of the evil people. We pray to the Most Merciful Almighty Allah that He(swt) restores her respect, her honour and her dignity, and we pray that Allah(swt) reunites her with her children and her family, and relieves our oppressed sister of her pain and suffering, and removes her grief and her sorrow, replacing it with firmness, fortitude and strength of mind, body and spirit, and that He(swt) pours into her heart peace, tranquillity and contentment, and gives her the forbearance to forbear this unbearable trial with steadfastness and a beautiful patience. Allahumma Ameen.

To make dua for her is our duty and it is the very least that we can do for ‘Our sister’ Aafia Siddiqui.

      May Allah swt free our sister, this breaks my heart. Lanat Allah on the opressors. May they feel the pain that they caused her and may her pain be removed and replaced with joy. May Allah grant her sabr and unite her with her children and loved ones. Shame on our leaders who have not done anything to free her.
