Syed Talha Ahsan was arrested under the Extradition
Act 2003 two days ago (Wed 19th July). This brother
masha-Allah was a role model to our youth. He was a
regular at Tooting Islamic Centre Masjid and well

Talha and his family need our utmost support at this
testing time. Yesterday it was Babar, today it is

it is a few lines or a card or a picture drawn by your
kids. Even if it a few verses from the Quran or a
hadith reminder. Tell him he is not forgotten, tell
him you are praying for him, tell him Allah will look
after him and his family.
His address is
Syed Talha Ahsan
This ten minute deed could be the deed that saves our
faces from the Fire on the Day of Judgement, when we
