Feds: Detroit man charged with locking women in basement, giving them drugs for sex with men

Quiyemabi Summerlin is accused of running a sex trafficking operation out of the basement on a home on Detroit’s east side.

Quiyemabi Summerlin is facing charges of sex trafficking plus firearm and drug charges after authorities said they took down his operation last week following a months-long investigation.


A Detroit man has been charged after allegedly sex trafficking at least 10 different women. According to court documents, the women were locked in his basement, raped and beaten, and then were given plates of heroin and crack cocaine as he kept the money.


In April of 2019, the Southeast Michigan Trafficking and Exploitation Crimes (SEMTEC) Task Force started the investigation that ultimately led to the arrest of Summerlin. During an undercover sex trafficking operation at a metro Detroit hotel, a woman said she worked for a violent pimp with the last name of Summerlin. She said he lives in Detroit near Grosse Pointe and is known to be violent towards women.


Summerlin has previous felony convictions include concealing stolen property, receiving stolen property, and 3rd-degree criminal sexual conduct, and is required to register as a sex offender.

How Should Muslims Deal with Homosexuality

Dr Yasir Qadhi explains how a Muslim should deal with urges of Homosexuality and how we are expected to deal with the controversial topic.

‘I have the Legal Right to “Criticize Morally,” and I will not compromise on this issue, I do not believe this lifestyle is Spiritually uplifting and it will not bring a person closer to GOD; and I also believe that GOD will forgive those who repent.’

Is it the ‘worst cold ever,’ the flu or covid? What to know before winterHealth officials fear a potential collision with coronavirus infections

Health experts say Americans have built up less natural immunity against influenza because so few were infected in 2020. The comeback of common viruses including RSV brought toddlers, who were not exposed as babies, to U.S. hospitals with severe cases this year.

While a feared collision of infections remained at bay last winter, viruses will have more potential to spread this fall in venues opening up again. This has medical staff worried that flu and covid-19 admissions could surge together in the next few months.

Tippu Tip: Black Muslim Traitor/Slave Trader

As part of the large and lucrative ivory trade, he led many trading expeditions into Central Africa, constructing profitable trading posts deep into the region. He bought the ivory from local suppliers and resold it for a profit at coastal ports. He was also the most well known Slave trader in Africa, supplying much of the world with Black AFRICAN Slaves. Helping the European powers clutched at the African continent in a campaign of colonial and imperial expansion, Tippu Tip played a pivotal role in this period as an ivory-trader, slave trader and protector of European explorers.

Captioned, “Slavers Revenging their Losses,” shows a coffle of men, women, and children, led by Arab slavers; one of the guards is murdering a captive unable to keep up with the rest. These people were taken across Central Africa to the east coast of Africa. The engravings in this book are based on, according to the editor, “rude sketches” made by Livingstone. On June 19, 1866, Livingstone wrote: “We passed a woman tied by the neck to a tree and dead, the people of the country explained that she had been unable to keep up with the other slaves in a gang, and her master had determined that she should not become the property of anyone else if she recovered after resting a time. . . . we saw others tied up in a similar manner . . . the Arab who owned these victims was enraged at losing his money by the slaves becoming unable to march, and vented his spleen by murdering them” (p. 56). This is one of the best known and frequently reproduced images in the literature on slaving in Africa. Also published in: J. E. Chambliss, “The Life and Labors of David Livingstone” (Philadelphia, 1875), p. 435; “The Life and African Explorations of Dr. David Livingstone” (St. Louis, 1874), p. 87; and in Thomas W. Knox, “The Boy Travellers on the Congo” (New York, 1888), p. 419 –with the caption “Slave Caravans on the Road” — which is sometimes erroneously given as the primary source. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_Ocean_slave_trade#/media/File:Slaves_ruvuma.jpg

Prayer Schedule April / May RAMADHAN 2021

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.

All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds. The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) Master of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection). You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything). Guide us to the Straight Way. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor of those who go astray.

Quran | Al-Faatihah 1:1-7

Prayer Schedule April / May RAMADHAN 2021

Salat (Prayer) requires that a person read/recite “Al-Faatiha,” [chapter one] and any other part of Quran in prayer. These seven verses of Al-Faatiha are required. A very good choice to read in prayer along with Al-Faatiha are the four verses of Chapter 112 “The Purity of The Faith;” short [four verses] but very comprehensive in meaning, conveying the Uniqueness of Allah and the unity of belief in Him.

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.

Say: He is Allah the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begets not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.

Forbidden Times of Prayer

Muslim (1373) narrated that ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir al-Juhani said: “There are three times at which the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade us to pray or to bury our dead: when the sun has clearly started to rise until it is fully risen, when it is directly overhead at midday until it has passed its zenith, and when the sun starts to set until it has fully set.” 

The color Red used for the time of Sunrise is done so only to highlight the fact that prayers at this time are forbidden.
