Guantanamo Bay may be off the radar screens, with some people actually believing the place has been closed down simply because Obama had promised to do so within a year of his presidency but, how can the men held there for so many years simply be erased from our memories? The campaign against the US prison may not have achieved the ultimate goal of acquiring justice for all the prisoners but, it has ensured that the men of Guantanamo are not forgotten. At least that's what it should have done.



A practical part of any campaign is to engage those whom it affects most - in this case the prisoners (and their families).

A letter can literally go a long way in helping to relieve the ordeal of men who have been incarcerated in the world’s most notorious prison for close to a decade, without charge or trial in any fair or recognised legal system. After years of neglect, torture, abuse, cruel and unusual treatment the remaining prisoners at Guantanamo Bay still have no light at the end of the tunnel. Their strength and resilience has been in their faith, whilst their patience has been tested to the extreme.



Writing a letter to them might not secure their release or replace their lost years but, it can give a person who feels abandoned by the world a little solace and hope. Testimony from released prisoners bears witness to that:



Former Guantanamo prisoner and Al-Jazeera journalist, Sami Al-Hajj, said: "There were very few moments in Guantanamo that would give us joy. One of those moments was when we received letters from our families; but we were even happier knowing that some - who we didn't even know - had written to us for no other reason than to show their support and care for us."



Former Guantanamo prisoner and Cageprisoners' researcher, Feroz Abbasi said: "The odd letter from a person I didn't know in the outside world gave me a lot of strength, particularly because I felt we had been abandoned by the world - especially the Muslim world."



Former Guantanamo prisoner and Cageprisoners director, Moazzam Begg, said: "Letters and messages of support and solidarity are just as important now as they were when we first received them, even when they were heavily redacted. In a place where all hope of justice seems so far removed letters from unseen faces and unknown names are a breath of fresh air and a ray of hope."



So, please remember the prisoners in your prayer and follow through with actions that might bring a little smile to those who have undergone unimaginable tribulations over the years.

Narrated 'Abdullah bin Umar: Allah's Apostle said, "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 fulfill his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) 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 Bukahri]



Your efforts will neither be wasted nor go unappreciated. May Allah reward you with the best.
