    Unhappy MUSLIMAH IN PRISON - For Killing A Rapist (OP)


    MUSLIMAH IN PRISON
    For Killing A Rapist


    ..Eighteen Year-old Muslimah In Prison for Killing Rapist

    An 18 year-old in America has been charged of murder and is being held
    in a jail in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

    Hala Gabr, was just 17 and three weeks of turning 18, when her foster
    mother took her to Atlantic City, while she went into a casino. Hala
    was left by herself to see the sights. After a while, Hala called a
    cab to go back and meet up with her foster mother.

    The cab driver offered her $20. to have sex with her. When Hala
    refused, the cab driver pulled a knife on her and forced to a motel
    room where he raped her violently. Medical records proved that she was
    sexually violated. At some point during the whole ordeal, she hit the
    cab driver with a bottle and knocked him to the ground. As he went
    down, she reached for the knife and stabbed him 13 times.

    She hid his body in the bed under the mattress, cleaned up the room,
    drove off in his car and threw all of his belongings in a nearby
    stream. These items have been found, negating the prosecution's claim
    that she was stealing his belongings.

    Because she was so shocked by the whole incident, she got into a car
    accident, and was taken unconscious to a hospital. When she was
    revived, she fled to her father's house in Brooklyn (from where she
    originally escaped from abuse and thus put into a foster home). The
    police found her purse in the car and traced her there, where she was
    arrested.

    The rapist, authorities said, frequently picked up prostitutes and was
    known as a sxual predator in the Atlantic City area.

    Hala does not have a criminal record, and although she cannot get the
    death penalty because of her age at the time, she is subject to life
    without parole for 50 years. She is currently being held on $500,000
    dollars bail.

    We are urging the readers to make du'a for Hala in every prayer and to
    request that sisters write her at the following address:

    Hala Gabr
    Atlantic City Correctional Center
    5060 Atlantic Avenue
    Mays Landing, NJ 08330


    Jazakallah Khaire.

    The interesting thing about this, and probably the reason she was detained, is because she hid the body and did not notify authorities right away. If she killed him in self defense, she should have notified the authorities right away.

    As it looks now, it seems like she enticed him to the hotel with the promise of sex, murdered him and stole his money. That is probably why she was arrested.

    From what I know, she hasn't been convicted yet, and if there is evidence of sexual assault, she probably will not be convicted.

    But she really messed up by hiding the body, taking his stuff and leaving in his car. It doesn't look good.

    It is hard to use an insanity defense in the united states since the burden of proof in such a case shifts to the defense, the defense must then prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the defendant was not aware that what she was doing was wrong.

    This is very hard to prove in a court of law and temp. insanity please almost always fail in the United States.

    Imaad, I'm aware that temporary insanity and diminished responsibility are hard to prove in court, but they seem to be the only defences she has.

    Come to think of it, maybe she could use Provocation.

    Or something.

    Re: MUSLIMAH IN PRISON - For Killing A Rapist

    Assalamu alaikum

    Has any spoken to the sister? had any replies to letters?

    Do we even know if she exists? Before you all bash me, take this into consideration, this is something which is being emailed around, nothing has been mentioned in any sites, not even 1. Go ahead, type her name in google, and results from other forums will appear, the best excuse of a site I could fine was :

    http://www.ishipress.com/haila.htm

    Which has cheap music in the background.

    As muslims we are taught to confirm something, before passing it on...

    O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done.

    She could just plead not guilty and hope the jury believes her story. Thats about the only other option.

    Re: MUSLIMAH IN PRISON - For Killing A Rapist

    Got this in an e-mail:


    as salaamu alaykom wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatu

    A brother from New Jersey was able to find some more information
    about this sister(may Allah reward him).

    · Her name is Haila Gabr, some news outlets misquoted her name
    · Second this case is a few years old. He couldn't confirm when this
    incident occurred but knows that is not a new case.
    · She was moved from Atlantic City jail to New Jersey State Prison.
    · Her sentence was reduced to about 8 years.

    The brother was also able to get her mailing address just incase
    some sisters want to send her mail so as to comfort her especially
    during this month of Ramadan. They can mail her at:

    HAILA GABR
    NJ STATE PRISON
    P.O BOX 861
    TRENTON NJ 08625

    May Allah make it easy on her...
    Remember, if we show mercy to those on earth, Allah will shower His
    mercy upon us.. i hope some of you take the effort to write to this
    poor sister. may allah give her strength. ameen.

    The same thing would have happened if the woman was non-Muslim.

    This isn't a religion thing, this is an 'action' thing.

    Right or wrong, she was arrested for her actions.

    Re: MUSLIMAH IN PRISON - For Killing A Rapist

    To be fair, I remember all those women getting locked up for being guilty by proxy, example their boyfreind (of all of 2 weeks) was a drug dealer and they did not realise, the boyfreind got busted and the girlfreind got life for involvment in drugs, and these women were all types of women, black, white ect.
    sadly American law is most unjust.

    I know this has happened, but is it as wide spread as you say? Can you cite a few cases, I'm interested...

    Re: MUSLIMAH IN PRISON - For Killing A Rapist

    Imaad_deen
    There was a movie made about it, but I can't remember the name, if you some research you will discover the crazed laws of USA.

    I wrote to the sister Hailah, And elhamdolelah I recived a letter from her today mashallah !
    I sent the letter recorded delivery to her, coz you know how letters can get 'lost' in the post, ahem !

    Well mashallah the sister is very very brave, she was so happy to get a letter from another sister, especially in ramadan ! and I was so happy to get her letter in this day of Eid !

    She says that she accepted a plea bargain of 10 years with 85% , basically means she is up for parole in dec 07, parole does not mean though she will be free for sure.
    Her spirit seems very high and her Imaam seemed intact elhamdolelah !
    She wanted to know all about this thread on this forum , this girl is clinging to allah, was very touching to read her letter.
    She says when she gets out she wants to help other muslims that are locked up . mashallah.
    Her exact words, were 'she wants to do everything possible to aid the muslimeen!'

    Look how she is thinking and yet she is locked up in that hell hole, may allah bless her !

    Well she knows of nobody campaigning or highlighting her case in UK, so im going to write back to her and get more details inshallah and make a decision on if it will be benefical to start a campaign for her, Im sure it will.
    To atleast put pressure on them to release her in her parole of dec 07
    Anyone who will be interested to help please pm me your email address's for future reference, particulary anyone who can make and design a website.

    If she is in usa, I dont think any organization in UK would be of any help. Although there are a few organizations that takes up the case of muslim prisoners (I think there is one for prisoners in Guantanamo), the most prominent one in USA is CAIR. There would at least be some exposure if CAIR takes up a case. But for some reason, they havent done anything about this sister, although they were intimated. It surprises me why no one (not even the family) is willing to even help her. It's good that she is responding to mails. I have seen quite a few websites made for such cause and I honestly have no idea how a website would be of any help.

    wa alykum asalam warahmatulahi wabarakatuh.

    i think this is because she doesnt have a proper family, Allah u a'lam but the article said her 'foster mother' had gone to a casino and the girl was going to meet with her again. so from that plot - it seems as if her foster mother may not have proper been into islam if she was gambling/going to a casino, yet at the same time because she is her 'foster mother' - it doesn't seem as if she would care that much because its not her real mother.


    Allah u a'lam (Allah (swt) knows best.)

    Re: MUSLIMAH IN PRISON - For Killing A Rapist

    Abwan brother, don't be so pessimisitic,I think we should be optimisitic we have ALLAH on our side after all.
    Yes caged prisoners (www.cagedprisoners.com) could possibly be of help should a english side campaign be started for her.
    I can think of LOADS of things to do, and a website will help highlight it, get an online petition for example, and put her letters on the site ect.
    And Im sure IHRC will be interested in her case inshallah.

    She has not mentioned anything about her case or family, but if you look back to the case how she ended up in the postion she did.
    She was more suprised to get a letter and say a million thankyous and talk about Allah before she mentioned what happened.
    so Im gonna ask her for more details ect, inshalah.

    Atleast write to the sister and send your thoughts, even if its a thinking of you card.

    Re: MUSLIMAH IN PRISON - For Killing A Rapist

    There are a couple of websites already having her story and updates and If I am not wrong, there is also a low profile organization trying to get some help for her and others in prison. And from what I have read people (at least a few) have visited her a few times (although not regularly).

    It would require a lot of convincing for a big organization like CAIR to take this up and probably more for people to donate for such a cause. It would help if they get a clear picture of what had happened. One news article honestly would be of little help.
