    As-salaam ‘alaykum Warahmatullah,

    I have seen many many support groups/organizations that are working for numerous amazing causes, but this one is truly one of a kind and tops off many. Insha’Allah any thing I can do to support… I’m in!
    May Allah accept and reward the intentions and the good work.

  • Sabs

    I would love to join the transcription team. Please sign me up :) and may Allah reward everyone involved in this awesome effort!

  • muslimah

    let’s all learn sign language…how do u say Allah in sign languagE?

  • http://signlabs.org SignLabs.org

    @Muslimah: I am not sure if it is the same in all forms of sign language, but in BSL, the sign for Allah is closing your fist, elevating your hand around head level, and pointing your index finger towards the sky. Like you’re communicating the Oneness of God, whilst also indicating His Greatness above us all. One example of how the power of sign lies in its succinctness, masha’Allah.

  • Abu Eman

    Subhanallah I would see the reverts taking so enthusiastically to Islam and wonder on how Allah changes the hearts of those who take steps towards Him. And then this drive comes around – and makes you gasp at the sheer greatness of Allah. Here are people who did not hear the bible thumpers or hallelujahs in the christian congregations and neither did they hear that winning argument given by an Islamic scholar but yet they believe in Allah!!! How remarkable they are and how great is the glory of Allah SWT.

  • al-Qasas

    As salamu alaykum,

    Sister Maryam an earlier post I made describes the crux of the project, insha’Allah.

    If you haven’t already joined and are still interested please send us an email.

    Barak’Allahu feekum

    Salaamu alaykum wa rahmaullahi wa barakatuh

    Subhannallah! May Allah bless this ummah with the taqwa that is needed. May He reward those who strive in His cause and those that seek His pleasure in varying ways. The deaf brothers and sisters are truly our mirrors that are spoken about in the hadith, reminds us of the infinite Mercies and bounties that are bestowed upon us daily….may we be the grateful servants that we should be. Ameen.

  • Jamaaz

    May Allah reward you all!

  • zakariya

    We thank the Almighty Allah (SWT) that has blessed us with the opportunity to make the deaf understand without ears and the blind to learn without eyes. May the Almighty continue to guide and bless us. May Allah guide us here and the hereafter.

  • Young Anonymous Sister

    Mashallah, this was a very tghoughtful drive, and made me aware of the deaf muslim community, (the blind muslim community is well-known due to saut-un-nur). inshallah when i am older i will be able to donate monetarily to the drives, but for now its just comments and polls and surveys from me.
    Shukran.
    Btw, i think there should be a better intro to the website, as at first i didnt know what it was all about.(i thought it was just like a joke!), Also there should be a draft E-mail we can send out to others, because i don’t know what 2 write!
    Wassalam

  • caynan

    SubhanAllah great work is being done by fellow brothers and sisters in regards to promoting needed attention of the deaf muslims and blind muslims aswell. I will make dua for this drive and others drives that i hope inshallah i will be part of actively.

    Thanks for the info

    Al- Sami will hear all of our silence as Allah will know all the good we do for our Brothers & Sisters. Our hearts will open, insh’Allah.

  • DanyalLodhi

    Asalam Alaikum to my brothers and sisters in Islam,

    I wish I could donate some money, however, I’m only in the position to give some dua’s to all the muslims who are striving hard to spread goodness in this world. These people are working day and night behind the scenes, doing jihad, so that many needy people around the world can have a better life.

    So my Salams and Duas to all my muslim brothers and sisters who are striving hard. May Allah SWT unite the Ummah for the betterment of mankind. InshAllah.
