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.

Praise be to Allah and Congratulations,

The hardwork is really paying off, InshaAllah CNN or ABC may pick it up next and Allah knows how many people you can inform on the truths about Islam.

It is time for your first short film for Sundance :)

I SUPPORT YOU 100%...Ummah Films are in my duaas.

I love your films and I have been very excited to see your success. God is truly rewarding your hard efforts and faith. As a Mormon, I know the struggles of being misunderstood. God Willing, you'll reach out and touch more people and show the true and very beautiful side of Islam...oh and that Muslims do have a sense of humor.
PS, I find more than one of the Reminder Series to be relevant no matter what your faith is...like the $25,000 wedding. :-)

alhumdulilah that is so great. All praise is to Allah[swt]. What you're doing with Ummah films is really amazing, and it's reaching both Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Insha'Allah, we're going to have a screening of the blogs at my University, because I found it is something that people are genuinely interested in. Jazakallahu Khairun for putting a new spin on educating others about Islam. Wa Salam.

I am so proud!!!!
