Support Prisoners in Search of the Light of the Holy Household
2nd Chance Books for Prisoners Program
Some of the many benefits of this program are changing prisoners bad habits into good ones; achieving social reform by teaching the morals and ethics of the Holy Prophet and his Holy Household (pbut), molding leaders; producing better citizens who will be active in helping their communities upon their release, promoting awareness of the true teachings of Islam as taught by Prophet Muhammad (s) and his Holy Household (as) and to remove misinformation and misconceptions about Islam and Muslims from the peoples minds.
We would like to stress the importance of helping a fellow believer who is less fortunate than ourselves and to remember that Imam Ali (as) said in a beautiful narration
"Do not feel ashamed if the amount of charity is small because to refuse the needy is an act of greater shame"

2nd Chance Books in the words of Sayed Mahdi Modaressi
We receive hundreds of questions about Islam from prisoners throughout the United States. This year we decided to start compiling these Questions and Answers in book form to be published on Amazon for the general public as well as to be sent and distributed throughout the prison system. These questions were answered by one of the 2nd Chance Team members Shaykh Saed Ali Kulayni. Volumes 1 and 2 are available at Amazon.com and volume 3 will be coming soon, God-willing.
