Every year we do this, and every year the number of years go up. May Allah hasten their release.
 
The 11th of January 2016 marked the FOURTEENTH anniversary since the opening of Guantanamo Bay, where your brothers became victims of immense torture, abuse, ridicule, isolation and discrimination. 107 brothers remain in this horrible situation (out of 779).
 
How would you cope?
 
Show these brothers they are not forgotten. They are not alone. They are heard. Give them a sense of belonging

**Please ensure that the letters are NOT politically approached. Also, if you could make them handwritten – the brothers would appreciate this more. Further, could you ensure that the letters are at least a page long – so the bothers have a real, heart-felt read of them inshaAllah to help lift their imaan and hopes**

DEADLINE: **WE WILL SEND THE LETTERS COLLECTIVELY ON THE 29th January 2016**
 
WHY SHOULD YOU WRITE A LETTER?
 
 
Reason 2) Bisher al-Rawi, UK resident who was returned to the UK in 2007 has recently explained how AI’s letters of support helped him:
 
“Amnesty, and what it stands for, is a torch of hope; that is how it was when I was in Guantánamo, when I received letters of support through Amnesty. In that lonely cell with nothing but emptiness to hold a photocopy of a letter or a card and read the words on it meant so much. They opened up the walls and gave me hope, and whispered to me: “You are not forgotten.”
 
And finally, Reason 3) I will leave you with the following hadith:
 
“A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfil his needs; whoever brought his brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection.” [Sahih Bukhari]
 
DON’T KNOW WHAT TO WRITE?
 
No worries! Send us an email at and inshaAllaah we will send you some samples to help start you off. Or just inbox any of us!! 🙂

Once again, immense gratitude sent to Andy for his hard work and providing us with an updated list each time!
 
Please provide a return address on the envelope.
 
WHERE DO YOU SEND THE LETTER TO?
 
On the 29th of January, please send your letter to:
 
Detainee Name
Detainee ISN
U.S. Naval Station
Guantanamo Bay
Washington, D.C. 20355
United States of America
 
Though we urge that these letters should be handwritten as they come across more meaningful, we fully appreciate that in some cases, this becomes rather difficult. Thus if you really cannot send this off yourself, please do not be diverged from writing. We can send it on your behalf. If it’s typed, send to or scan in a hand written letter and send it to us!
