An Update on Imam Jamil
We haven't consistently heard from Imam Jamil for a few months because the prison had been on lock down due to a murder. When he did manage to call, it was uncertain how long he would have or if he would be able to call again due to the rolling lock downs during the murder investigations and search for the gun. During one of his calls, Imam Jamil expressed his disapproval of groups like Al-Ummah commercially exploiting his image and likeness without permission. It was particularly concerning since Al-Ummah had reportedly broken its Bay'ah to Imam Jamil without informing the public. He signed off on a letter representing his position.
Imam Jamil had called in during the Riyadah in July in North Carolina. In the call he emphasized that the bedrock of a strong community is in its commitment to Islamic principals. He quoted Umar ibn Khattab, a companion of Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him), stating, "There is no Islam without community, there is no community without leadership, and there's no leadership without allegiance."
In the limited time available, the Imam left an impactful message for all: adherence to Islamic principles, righteousness, remembrance of the Creator, and good behavior are all determining factors used to take measure of the health and longevity of any community. Just before the Imam’s call ended, he made the request of the Imam Jamil Action Network (IJAN) to officially handle the defense fund.
On July 15, Imam Abdul Walee's home caught on fire while he was at the masjid. His family is safe and Imam Walee was forced to setup in a motel. He is now in a second motel at the time of publishing.
May Allah make things easy for our brother. Please make sure to support him in whatever way possible. Here are his Cashapp details:

Qur’an, baby items, clothes, and toiletries, etc… are needed.
Make sure to keep him and hos family in your dua'.
IJAN and the New Dar-ul-Islam Movement Clarified
The Imam Jamil Action Network (IJAN) is the political advocacy arm of the political/legal campaign to free and exonerate Imam Jamil Al-Amin, the former H. Rap Brown. The leadership of IJAN, with its Amir Bilal Sunni-Ali and its Deputy Amir Imam Luqman Al-Sadiq, are members of the New Dar-ul-Islam Movement. Please note, that it is not a requirement to be a member of the New Dar-ul-Islam Movement or even Muslim in order to support or join IJAN.
The New Dar-ul-Islam Movement is a National and International movement that recognizes Imam Jamil Al-Amin, the former H. Rap Brown, as its Amir. Imam Jamil Al-Amin has appointed Imam Isa Abdul Kareem as his acting Amir in his stead till his return from being a falsely charged Political Prisoner.
The New Dar-ul-Islam Movement will also be hosting a Boys Summer Camp from Monday, July 3rd, through Friday / Jumu’ah July 7th; located at William Umstead State Park in Raleigh, NC.
The New Dar-ul-Islam Movement, in conjunction with IJAN, is hosting the Imam Jamil Riyadah™ Retreat. To be held Saturday, July 8, 2023, at William Umstead State Park in Raleigh, North Carolina. Saturday, July 8, will be a full day of workshops and reports presented by both IJAN and the New Dar-ul-Islam Movement.
There will also be a basketball 🏀 tournament on Sunday July 9th from 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM at the Islamic Association of Raleigh (IAR) in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The New Dar-ul-Islam Movement and IJAN are both very aware that the National Community known as Al-Ummah is hosting an event that they also call the Riyadah in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Friday July 14-16th, 2023.
Al-Ummah used to be the national community under Imam Jamil Al-Amin. IJAN used to be part of it until three years ago. Al-Ummah claims to have officially broken its allegiance to Imam Jamil Al-Amin in March 2002 following his conviction and sentencing to life in prison without the possibility of parole. During the entire span of time of approximately 18 years that this position was held, Al-Ummah never publicly announced it, nor communicated it to its own body, or to IJAN . Yet Al-Ummah continues to commercially exploit the Imam with their public usage of his name and image without his authorization. Al-Ummah also does not recognise the acting Amir whom Imam Jamil assigned to take over in his absence. Due to these reasons, IJAN and Imam Jamil himself are no longer affiliated with Al-Ummah.
This is a sad case. We sincerely hope that Al-Ummah returns to recognising Imam Jamil as its Amir, reestablishes baya’ah, and acknowledges the acting Amir that Imam Jamil has assigned. Despite this internal division that has slithered its way into the Islamic movement by way of the forces of Shaytan, we hold to the fact that we all remain united as part of the general body of the Ummah of Muhammad Ibn Abdullah, (Peace be Upon him), i.e the worldwide Muslim Ummah/community.
Furthermore, while Allah is sufficient as disposer of our affairs, it is the position of Imam Jamil Al-Amin and IJAN that the utilization of his name and likeness without his permission is haram as it is based in deception and misleading the public. We will work with Kairi Al-Amin, attorney for Imam Jamil, to explore all legal avenues available to prevent the unauthorized commercial exploitation of the Imam’s name or likeness.
We pray that this Fitnah be resolved quickly and that the bond of brotherhood be restored stronger and more unified than before. We also pray that this notice clarifies the issue of the two Jamaats as well as the two events.

Imam Jamil, Give Us Some Information and We’ll Let You Go
The Conviction Integrity Unit recently visited the Imam at the Penitentiary in Tucson. Certain details have been made scarce, however, during the visit, government agents accompanied the unit to make an offer to the Imam. The offer was, give them information, and they would let the Imam go. His reply was that he was gone awhile, so he had no information for them.
The Confession, will it be Televised?
October 4th, 2022, saw a rally in front of the CNN building in Atlanta. The call was for CNN and corporate media in general to air the confession of Otis Jackson, the one who committed the well known shootout. The rally saw a fair turnout and outreach, some police intimidation, and a “promise” from employees at CNN that the confession will be aired. The days leading up the rally, reports were heard that CNN was trying to gain access to interview Otis Jackson in person.
Let the Movement Go Forth
The New Darul Islam Movement has gone international and is now in Africa. Coming in 2023, the Movement once again sponsors the Riyadah, this time to be in New York right after Eidul Adha.

The FBI’s COINTELPRO remains one of the darkest chapters in our nation’s history. For decades, the FBI carried out covert actions and dirty tricks against social movements. COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program) included among the program’s many targets, organizations such as the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the anti-Vietnam War movement, and individuals such as Martin Luther King, Jr, as well as local, state, and federal elected officials.
There’s a bill in Congress that will open up the FBI’s files. HR 2998 would require full, public release of the FBI’s COINTELPRO files. This historic bill is an important step to reconciling with the FBI’s continued legacy of undemocratic abuses of power.
Please help us make history and expose FBI dirty tricks. Please write your member of Congress today to ask them to support this bill and to support efforts to broaden it to cover the full scope of FBI files.
