Muslim father forgives man involved in his son’s murder
Trey Alexander Relford was sentenced to 31 years for his part in the murder of Salahuddin Jitmoud, a Muslim delivery driver, in 2015. However, an astonishing scene ensued in the courtroom as Abdul-Mumin Sombat Jitmoud, the victim’s father, forgave Relford during the hearing.
“Forgiveness is the greatest gift in Islam,” Abdul-Mumin Jitmoud said during the hearing, which lasted for almost three hours.
“Out of something that is so tragic, there is really something beautiful here that is beyond really all of us,” public defender Shannon Brooks-English said.
“It’s a testament to Salahuddin that his family is able to forgive,” said Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Kathy Phillips.
This act of forgiveness however, took everyone by surprise.
