Resettlement and Rehabilitation
Over the past 25 years we have responded to Muslim Convert prisoners serving sentences in prisons across the UK and USA who have written letters seeking guidance, reading materials and general support. A restricted mandate limited our efforts to befriending and counselling through regular correspondence and by offering financial help, via zakat and sadaqah charitable donations post release as well as referrals to agencies designed to assist with resettlement opportunities for newly released prisoners. As a means towards developing further competence in this field we are currently engaged, in an advisory capacity, in research and in a consultative capacity relating to supporting Converts to Islam in Prisons and related issues. Our intention is to bring awareness to this growing phenomenon and to work alongside existing organisations that are supporting resettlement and sustaining and strengthening faith as a means towards positive future prospects in life.
