Actually the prison ministries are by NOI. A group not recognized by Sunni or Shi'ite. They were founded by a non-Muslim American in the USA in the 1930s. Although they do use the Qur'an and have adopted some Islamic practices, they do not accept Muhammad(saws) as the final Prophet and originally would not accept white Muslims.

I am quite familiar with the NOI, but thank you. I was not referring solely to the NOI.

True for many of the black convicts who became "Muslim" (and I will put it in quotes) years ago, but not true of the growing number of both black white convicts who become Muslim these days, such as Michael Finton.

Most of that prison outreach, btw, is a Wahhabi doctrine outreach.

I was unaware of any active prison ministries by any mainstream Muslims or the Wahhabi. But, it would be typical of Wahhabi/Salafi. I was hoping there was very minimal if any Wahhabi presence here in the USA.
