Alaa Mohs Abusaad
On October 22, 2018 Alaa Mohs Abusaad was arrested for attempting to provide material support or resources to a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.
Abusaad instructed an FBI undercover employee (UCE) how to send money to the mujahideen (soldiers for Allah). Abusaad introduced the UCE to a financial facilitator who could route the UCE’s money to “brothers that work with al Qaeda.” Abusaad confirmed this facilitator was very trustworthy because he helped her send money several times.
Abusaad told the UCE “(Money) is always needed. You can’t have a war without weapons. You can’t prepare a soldier without equipment.”
Abusaad also advised the UCE on how to send money in a manner that would avoid detection by law enforcement, including wearing a niqab, and using fake names and addresses when conducting electronic money transfers.
A few of the other precautions Abusaad relayed to the UCE to keep her from being apprehended by police includes: send money transfers from a grocery store and not a western union; practice saying and writing the fake name three times; only use the name once; send under $400 USD cash; and make sure you have the spelling of the receiver correct.
Abusaad confirmed the money being sent was “going to the groups that are killing the kufar.” Kufar is a non- Muslim.
The UCE was provided a name and address to send money to Istanbul, Turkey.
Abusaad explained, “Like for instance if he wants it to be Zakat money it can go to the widows of Mujahideen. Or if he wants it could be for weapons. Bullets. Clothing….Supporting a Mujahids family is like taking part in Jihad.”
Sura (Chapter) 9 in the Koran is the “sura of the sword.” Verse 9:60 states: “Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect zakah and for bringing hearts together for Islam and for freeing captives or slaves and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the stranded traveler – an obligation imposed by Allah. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.”
Specifically, category 7 – “the cause of Allah” is legally defined in sharia as: “Those Fighting for Allah. The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster, but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration. They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged.” [Um dat al Salik, Book H Zakat, H8.17]
Just a reminder CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) states on it’s website it gives 100% of their zakat to category 7 (those fighting for allah” / “fisabilillah”) – jihad or what U.S. law calls ”terrorism.”
In all of this it must be remembered that CAIR is Hamas, Hamas is a designated terrorist organization, and this is a war.
To win this war we must know sharia.
Zakat is legally mandated giving by muslims and is one of the five pillars of Islam. A day after UTT wrote an article about the legal requirements of zakat, a female Jihadi was arrested for assisting in financing soldiers for Allah.
Also worth knowing that President Obama publicly stated, “That is why I am committed to working with American muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat.” (Cairo, Egypt, 6/04/2009)
This is Islam. This is Sharia. Sharia kills. The war is here.
UTT continues to stand ready to train police to understand the threat and dismantle these networks at the local level.
