In the early 2000s, Al-Kawari worked with Al-Qaida operative Mustafa Hajji Muhammad Khan (a.k.a. Hassan Ghul) (QDi.306) and Qatari Al-Qaida facilitator Ibrahim 'Isa Hajji Muhammad al-Bakr (QDi.344) to transfer money to Al-Qaida in Pakistan. At that time, Al-Kawari also obtained a fraudulent passport for Hassan Ghul, which Ghul used to travel to Qatar with Al-Kawari and Al-Bakr.
