The family of Abdulrahman and Anwar Al- Awlaki Statement to the Press
During the last period we have avoided any interaction with the
press regarding the unlawful assassination of Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki. One
journalist rightly called it a “political stunt unworthy of the American nation”. Anwar was never a “militant” nor was he “the head of Al Qaeda
external operations”. Anwar was an American citizen who had not been
formally charged with any crime, and no evidence was ever presented.
However, this statement is about his son, Abdulrahman. We watched with
surprise and condemnation how several prominent American newspapers and
news channels twist the truth calling Abdulrahman as an Al Qaeda
operative and falsely and misleadingly stating his age as 21 year old.
Abdulrahman Anwar Awlaki was born on August 26, 1995 in Denver Colorado.
He was an American citizen raised in the U.S. until 2002 when his
father was forced to leave the U.S. and go back to Yemen. Since then,
Abdulrahman has lived in Sana’a (Yemen’s capital) until several weeks
ago, when in mid September he left his mother a note stating that he
missed his father and will go search for him in Shabwah governorate –
his ancestral homeland. About a week later his father was assassinated
on September 30 2011. He stayed in Shabwah with his relatives and has
been intending to go back to Sana’a within days. On October 14th 2011
Abdulrahman, along with some of his tribe’s youth have gone barbecuing
under the moonlight. A drone missile hit their congregation killing
Abdulrahman and several other teenagers.
We ask you to visit Abdulrahman’s Facebook page: Abdulrahman Al-awlaki
to see the “lethal terrorist”, “the 21 yr old Qaeda operative” the US
government is claiming they killed. Look at his pictures, his friends
and his hobbies. His Facebook page shows a typical kid. A teenager who
paid a hefty price for something he never did and never was.

Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 2482 Narrated by AbuHurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him)
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) used to say, " O Allah, grant me benefit in what Thou hast taught me, teach me what will benefit me, and increase my knowledge. Praise be to Allah in all circumstances. I seek refuge in Allah from the state of those who go to Hell."
Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah transmitted it, Tirmidhi saying this is a tradition whose isnad is gharib.
Transliteration:an Abi Hurairah (radiya Allahu anhu) qaal:
qaala Rasul Allah (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam):"Allahumma infa'ni bima 'allamtani, wa allimni maa yanfa'oni wa zidni 'ilman, alhamdulillahi alaa kolli haal, wa a'odtho billahi min haali ahlil naar."
