AllahuAkbar! Walhamdullilaah! This is perhaps the best news of the year!
Our Shaykh, Anwar al-’Awlaki (hafidhullah) has been released from the prisons of Yemen. For those who don’t know, Imaam Anwar used to live in the States for some time giving Da’wah and teaching the Ummah.
Then he traveled overseas and spread the Haqq regarding Hijrah and Jihaad fe Sabeelillaah in an amazing 15-16 hour lecture series (entitled “The Story of Ibn al-Akwa”) and 6 hour lecture series (entitled, “Constants on the Path of Jihaad”).
Imaam Anwar is also known for his other long series on the Sahaabah, the life of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassallam) in both Makkah and Madinah, the lives of all the Prophets, and much more. All of his series are in English.
Without a doubt, Imaam Anwar is one of the bridges between the Muslims in the West and the classical Islaamic sources which sprouted from the East, feeding us knowledge of the Shuyookh whom we never hear about – such as the Mujaahid Shaykh Yusuf bin Saalih al-’Uyayree, Shaykh Ibn an-Nuhaas and more – because of the cowardly scholars residing in the West.
