We would like to share this news, for the tremendous mercy and compassion shown by Sidi Abdul-Munim Jitmoud and his family, in the name of Islam. For being an example for all humanity of the reality of what Islam really is, and being an example for all of us.
Also for being a news that afflicted us very closely, since one of his son Ahmed Jitmoud, our brother, lives in Spain and is married to a Muslim Spanish woman. And after seeing his father, we understand where his nobility of character comes from.
May Allah give Salahuddin, rahimullah, the benefit of all good deeds of the one who inspired by his father, implement this compassion and mercy in his life and actions on the path to Allah. And may Allah fill the hearts of all his family with patience and sweetness. Amin
Abdul-Munim Jitmoud, Salahuddin Jitmoud’s father, Rahimullah (May he rest in peace), who was murdered while working, has starred in an exciting scene in a US court, forgiving and embracing the man sentenced to prison for participating in the death of his son. Last Tuesday, during the reading of the sentence, Abdul-Munim Sombat Jitmoud ended up embracing the accused, Trey Alexander Relford, who could not do anithing but cry of emotion.
Jitmoud claimed that he forgave him because that was the spirit of Islam. “Islam teaches us that God will not be able to forgive someone until the person who was harmed has forgiven him,” he said. “The door of opportunity for God to forgive him is open … So, come close to Him. You have a new chapter to lead a good life,” he told Relford in court.
Salahuddin Jitmoud’s father, rahimullah, said he forgave the defendant “in the name of Salahuddin and his mother,” who died two years before his son. In response, Relford told the family: “There’s not much I can say. I’m sorry about what happened that day. I can not do anything to return it to you. ” “I am angry with the devil, who disoriented you and tricked you into committing such a horrible crime,” Jitmoud told Relford. “I do not blame you. I am not mad at you. I forgive you, “he sentenced before embracing him.
After hearing the sentence, Jitmoud explained to CNN that he whispered in Relford’s ear do “good deeds” when you get out of prison and that I trusted that “Allah is forgiving.”
