More UF shirts? Shirt design is up to you

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,


The text looks a little warped because I tried to compress the file but on the shirt it will be excellent InshAllah.

The t-shirts have been sold out for a while now and my intention was just to get just one batch of shirts. Recently, I have been getting more requests to order more shirts so if people really do want them, then I'll order them. Otherwise, I'm not trying to get into the t-shirt business.

I believe simple is better. Above are some sample designs. On the left side of the page is what they will look like on a white shirt and the right side is what they will look like on black shirt. I figure $12 a shirt is a reasonable price for the shirts

Please answer the following questions:

A. Which design do you like?
B. Which color? white (left-side of page) or black (right-side of page)
C. What size?
D. T-shirt or Long Sleeve?
E. Is $12 a reasonable price (no extra charge for long sleeve and xxl size too)
F. Do you plan to order one or are you just like voting? haha

***NOTE: For those who are familiar with our store shipping is always a flat rate ($8 for USA and $10 for International), no matter how many items you order. Also, I send everything USPS Priority Shipping so you can get it fast InshAllah and there is no extra charge for priority. Thus, if you order to 2 shirts, a Mecca to Medina game, and a Season 1 DVD, its still $8 total for the shipping if you're in the US and $10 shipping if you live overseas and if your country excepts priority shipping, then by default it sent via priority.

JazakAllah khair for your feedback

salam - what is all this???? sorry to say brother but you are educating the people muslims and non muslims about Islam the way of our prophet and how this is the manual to be a better muslima and come close to Allah swt then why are u selling these flimsy t-shirts - making profit in the name of Islam in the name of Allah (SWT) not good brother you should seriously re consdier your stance and go back to just doing the documentaries -

May Allah forgive you for any worng you have done and rward you for your goodness


At November 16, 2006 4:58 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

moreover ... you are really making your audience who are mostly students very POOR we cannot afford these stuff and yet you insist to sell them how do they benefit us??? why shall one waste money on it - it be good if every profit you mnake give it to the poor to charity then that makes sense and we are happy to buy other than that NO! please understnad i am infuriated by all this t-shirt and writbands come one its JOKE! selling your dvd is was stretching the limit - i suggest you can make profit no harm in that but do post an article saying at least 50 per cent goes to charity - islamic relief :)

hope you act upon this as i have spoken to many and they are unhappy with all this.

Allah hafiz

A/B. For a white t-shirt Option 1 would look good . for a blak t-shirt option 4 would look good (i reckon)

C. make sure you have alot of small sizes (people always seem to run out of small sizes!)

D. how about tank tops so you can wear it as pijamas (promoting the web site at slumber parties)

E. pricing seems ok when converting to other currencies..but it wont hurt to have it cheeper ;)

F. i was just voting :) BUT as i was typing this comment the small voice inside my head wouldnt be quiet and is telling me to get one.

At November 17, 2006 12:55 AM, Blogger Baba Ali said...

Assalammu' Alaikum,

To answer your question and concern, 20% of all DVDs profits goes straight to the poor or orphan Muslims (no middle charity organization...directly to them). The rest of it goes to Ummah Films to make future films.

I have not made one penny off anything from Ummah Films nor do I plan to. Alhamdulillah Allah (swt) has put a roof over my head and food in my stomach so this project is NOT a business for me. I don't charge for anything I do for Ummah Films.

I constantly get requests for t-shirts but printing a few shirts is expensive. So I decided to post up the idea of printing shirts and to see if there are others who want them too. If people want them, then I will print them. The problem is that if we want a decent price, then a larger order has to be made.

One idea was to do "preorders" but I don't feel comfortable of selling something that doesn't exist (since the shirts haven't been printed). I try to follow Islam in all parts of my life, including business. Thus since I am in doubt regarding the fiqh issue of preorders, I decided to not go that route and instead just order the shirts and hope I just break even.

I asked for the "vote" to see who is interested. This will give me a better idea of how many of each size to order InshAllah. Last time I didn't do this and I ordered all L, XL, and XXL (no small or mediums). I'm learning by the comments so far, that small and medium are in demand.

Since I am not taking pre-orders, I have no idea who will buy and who won't and I don't want to boxes of t-shirts sitting in my closet. Thus to make sure I don't go negative, I decided to charge $12, which is still much cheaper than other Islamic shirts on the web. Also, as many sisters know, long sleeve is more expensive but I am keeping it at the same price eventhough it cost me more. Same with XXL.

If there is money made out of the shirts, it will goto Ummah Films for future projects. If no future projects happen, then it will be donated. I am not putting any money into my pocket whatsoever.

Please not that the game that I invented, Mecca to Medina, which can be found on this website and on www.muslimgames.com is a profit business and is not part of Ummah Films. I own the rights to that game but first order of games are owned by several investors.

your brother in Islam,

i prefer number 4 and 5.
but 3 is also quite simple.
i don't mind, any one of them, that will be great.

i like the shirt to be in black,
and, just if u can,
i want a big and long(not for a fat person but for a tall person) shirt, for sisters,
with long sleeve,
and about the design, for sisters,
i prefer it to be at the lower part (left or right), at the front of the shirt. you know, we are wearing headscarf, we can't see the design if it is at the upper part of the shirt, can we?

but if u can't, then it is ok, i won't mind at all.

$12 is moderate,
and i plan to buy, but no promise.

that's it.
i'm very proud of ummahfilms,
move on with ur dakwah,
for the sake of Islam!

ukhwah fillah abadan abada.
