Ummah Films on TV?
Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,UMMAH FILMS ON TV?
A friend on the Ummah Films MySpace page advised me to post up one of my videos on Current Tv last Thursday and I did. Basically, the top video of the site goes to TV. With over 2000+ videos on the site, I really didn't think we had a chance because only the top video makes it . Plus, the only way to become the top video, viewers have to give you more greenlights (votes) than another other video. Given the facts that most the viewers are most likely non-Muslims and they have misconceptions about Islam, at one point I thought I was wasting my time because maybe they wouldn't even give it a chance. Alhamdulillah people watch and liked it.
On Friday, when I check the stats, it showed that the video I uploaded, Muslim While Flying, had moved up to #41 and then to #21 on Saturday and #10 on Sunday. I was very suprised since it was the first and only video on that website. Yesterday, as I was driving home, I get a phone call from the TV station saying that they want to broadcast the video (Muslim While Flying) on their channel. They told me it reaches 40 million people. Amazing. Early that day, I thought it was cool that we past the 1 million mark (1 million people viewing our videos since June) but to jump to 40 million is even cooler :)
Anyways, we still have to do the legal paperwork so it won't probably air until a few weeks. All the success is ONLY because of Allah (swt). All we have to do is put in the effort and make du'ah. The rest is out of our hands.
