Greetings from your servant and younger brother in Christ, Youcef
To: All those who are concerned and worried about my current situation.
First, I would like to inform all of my beloved brothers and sisters that I
am in perfect health in the flesh and spirit. And I try to have a little
different approach from others to these days, and consider it as the day of
exam and trial of my faith. And during these days which are hard in order to
prove loyalty and sincerity to God, I am trying to do the best in my power to
stay right with what I have learned from God’s commandments.
I need to remind my beloveds, though my trial has been so long, and as in
the flesh I wish these days to end, yet I have surrendered myself to God’s
I am neither a political person nor do I know about political complicity,
but I know that while there are many things in common between different
cultures, there are also differences between these cultures around the world
which can result in criticism, which most of the times response to this
criticisms will be harsh and as a result will lengthen our problems.
From time to time I am informed about the news which is spreading in
the media about my current situation, for instance being supported by various
churches and famous politicians who have asked for my release, or campaigns and
human rights activities which are going on against the charges which are
applied to me. I do believe that these kind of activities can be very helpful
in order to reach freedom and respecting human rights in a right way can bring
forth positive results.
I want to appreciate all those are trying to reach this goal. But on the
other hand, I’d like to announce my disagreement with the insulting activities that
cause stress and trouble, which unfortunately are done with the justification
(excuse) of defending human rights and freedom, for the results are so clear
and obvious for me.
I try to be humble and obedient to those who are in power; obedience to
those in the authority that God has granted to the officials of my country, and
pray for them to rule the country according to the will of God and be
successful in doing this. For I know in this way I have obeyed God’s Word. I
try to obey along with those whom I see in a common situation with me. They
never had any complaint, but just let the power of God be manifested in their
lives, and though sometimes we read that they have used this right to defend
themselves, for they had this right, I am not an exception as well and have
used all possibilities and so forth and am waiting for the final result.
So I ask all the beloved ones to pray for me as the holy Word has said. At
the end I hope my freedom will be prepared as soon as possible, as the
authorities of my country will do with free will according to their law and
commandments which they are answerable to.
May God’s grace and mercy be upon you now and forever. Amen.
