    I can’t express how thankful I am for your videos Mr.Al-Rawi. I pray to God that Insha’Allah (God Willing) your prayers will come true and you return to your old self soon. The process is long but it will happen one day. You are very strong, and inspiring! May God bless you and your family and all the other prisoners. Amen.
