On July 23, 2014, at the Butner Federal Medical Center, Imam Jamil had a bone marrow biopsy to determine the presence of myeloma cells. Yesterday, Kairi and I visited with him at Butner, and today he was told by the Butner medical staff that the biopsy results revealed “some myeloma cells.”

He was told he needed to be monitored and tested every two to three months to determine if his condition has advanced to the full multiple myeloma stage. He would not remain at the hospital and could be monitored at another facility. The pre-cursor condition is called monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS).

This raises the issue that more than likely he will be returned to Florence ADX until he has another episode. The sunlight has helped him at Butner, but I still am worried about his weight loss and the fact that he would be moved out of Butner so quickly.

We are working tomorrow to contact Congressional reps, although many are away on vacations. The thought is that if he is moved back, it will be difficult to get him back out of Florence short of his becoming deathly ill.

We will have to go public once again with the BOP’s decision to return him to the same institution that failed to recognize his medical condition until public pressure was exerted. He needs to be close to medical providers who are skilled with monitoring his condition, and Florence ADX lacks that capability.

Meanwhile, we are working on obtaining his medical records from Butner, so that we can involve our physicians in evaluating the findings, making recommendations, and monitoring Imam Jamil’s condition.

Let us know your thoughts.

Attorney Karima Al-Amin is the wife of Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin. She and their son Kairi Al-Amin, also an attorney, can be reached at Al-Amin Law Group, LLC, 1000 N. Indian Creek Drive, Suite A, Clarkston, GA 30021, or email her at

  3. Ask the family of the Sheriff's deputy Ricky Kinchen , (who H Rap Brown murdered) if they want to see him released.

    I pray that H Rap Brown dies in prison – as his sentence demands. Life in prison without parole.

  4. It sounds very off for police officers to go to someone who owns the store for committing so called thefit. It sounds like self defense to me. Im sure H rap brown didn’t just start shooting soon as the police came in really. Putting themselves in the line of fire is part of the job im sure if H rap brown had been killed this is what they would have said and the officers would not have done any time. Double startdards and the white man always seem to come up with other rules to satisfy them. I pray Yah put everything in its porper place.

  5. The Weber also has three control vents in the base and also one in the lid circuit provide for a lot of bbq and also thinking about that you could be cooking.

  6. I would like to send Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin a gift of Islamic art. I’m an old soldier who was with him and his new York Court following the shoot out at the red carpet bar. I was blessed to have a few moments in his presence. I became an acquaintance and I believe a friend of William Kunstler.

    If he has already passed I’d like to send the gift to his son or wife.

  7. Fintan, I think he is still with us, having not seen anything in the news. I too would like to send a letter, but after looking at various articles, am not sure where to send it.
    I was about to mail it out to Butner, but have seen two other possible locations mentioned. Can someone update? Feb/27/2018.
