    An Unsung Hero - Major George Tillery #Justice4MajorTillery

    in Legal

    Frackville, Pennsylvania -- Major George Tillery is a Pennsylvania lifer who confronted SCI Mahanoy Superintendent John Kerestes over Mumia Abu-Jamal's deteriorating health. Elder Tillery told the Mahanoy superintendent to get Mumia to the hospital, stating "Mumia is dying." Major Tillery faces acts of retaliation daily as a result of seeking medical assistance for Mumia and others. Tillery has been transferred to SCI Frackville, placed in "the hole" (RHU), on false charges of receiving a letter with stamps concealing drugs. Stamps are taken off of mail at this institution before being distributed to inmates.


    "Major Tillery was retaliated against, moved from SCI Mahanoy and placed in "the hole" at SCI Frackville. He is accused of receiving a letter which tested positive for suboxone under a stamp. All stamps are removed from mail entering this institution. He has been denied adequate medical care, the rash on his body is getting worse and heat mixed with vapors that smell like gas is being pumped through the vent while the one window in his cell is sealed."  


    "...while at S.C.I. Mahanoy I was threaten by my unit manager Griffin stated if i kept complaining about Mumia or writing Grievances, she would Try and have me desinated a Muslim combatant." "... I have a Metal Food slot which the guards put a toilet brush on my food slot so i won't eat. They know on Ramadan you only get one meal. This happens twice a week. Plus my rash the same one Mumia had is getting worst.'

    QSI: The Seerah: Beginnings In The Madani Era; Ijtihaad In America

    in Education

    23: 52. And verily this Ummah of yours is a single Ummah and I am your Lord and Cherisher: therefore be regardful of Me.


          53. But people have cut off their affair (of unity) between them into sects: each party rejoices in that which is with itself.


    Mu'adh ibn Jabal states that when the Prophet (pbuh) sent him to Yemen, The Prophet (pbuh) asked:
    "What will you do if a matter is referred to you for judgement?" Mu'adh said: "I will judge according to the Book of Allah." The Prophet asked: "What if you find no solution in the Book of Allah?" Mu'adh said: "Then I will judge by the Sunnah of the Prophet." The Prophet asked: "And what if you do not find it in the Sunnah of the Prophet?" Mu'adh said: "Then I will make Ijtihad to formulate my own judgement." The Prophet patted Mu'adh's chest and said "Praise be to Allah who has guided the messenger of His Prophet to that which pleases Him and His Prophet."[Abu Daud]

    The headline caught my attention first. “Single mom goes from American Hustle to living her dreams in Abu Dhabi.” It was in the Huffington Post and the story was inspirational . 


    In 2013, her life in shambles, Tenai Benard packed up her three children and moved to Abu Dhabi.  According to the article, “Since their move to the UAE, the kids have grown and matured beautifully.


    After dealing with the reality of their parents' divorce they are excelling and currently attend an American curriculum private school where they are learning Arabic and French.”


    I knew immediately that I had to have her as a guest on my radio show.  She is the epitome of what this show is about. I don’t know if I could be so brave and will ask her to share her journey with us on this show.
