In 2018, Al Jazeera covered the documentary The Honest Struggle, a story about Sadiq Davis, a former inmate who converted to Islam while incarcerated and is now helping fellow Muslim reverts re-enter society as they leave jail. When asked why he decided to convert to Islam, he mentioned that with the help of fellow Muslim brothers in prison, he studied the Quran and “experienced a sense of peace like he has never experienced before in his life”.
DD USA has donated hundreds of Qurans to the federal and state penitentiaries, jails and correctional institutions in the US. Through 2022, we have donated to Canaan penitentiary in Pennsylvania, El Paso County jail in Colorado, the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution in Delaware, and the Denver Sheriff Department for prisons in the city and county of Denver, Colorado. We also fulfilled personal requests for the Quran from inmates in Columbia River Correctional Institution in Oregon and Burleson County jail in Texas.
We hope to make Qurans more accessible for prisons across the United States. Do your part and donate a Quran or a box of Qurans, and through our efforts, Insha Allah we can help our incarcerated brothers and sisters find the light of the holy Quran in their darkest despair.
