JazakAllah khair for all the viewer's support!
Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,
Of course all success is only in Allah (swt) hands but its up to us to put in the effort. When I first decided on doing the Reminder videos, I wasn't sure how people were going to react because I wanted to cover issues that weren't discussed. For whatever reason, people would discuss these subjects in their circle of friends but never in the public arena. Maybe because it is politically incorrect, or not appropriate, or maybe there just wasn't a forum to give your 2 cents about these subjects. Well, the forum is here now and anyone can comment and can do so even anonymously.
That being said, I just wanted to say JazkAllah khair for all the viewer's support. Each time a new video has come out, those who support the ideas behind Ummah Films have helped us promote and market it via posting the videos on their websites, blogs, myspace pages, etc... Even though I write, film, & edit these reminder videos, I only play a small part of all this. The real effort is from all of YOU who have helped spread these messages to all over the world and I wanted to say once again, JazakAllah khair.
I also wanted to thank everyone for supporting UF by buying the UF products. As you know, both the DVD and Shirt sales are going towards helping us with making our first two short movies InshAllah. We have been keeping a record of what is going on with each project on our blogs (see links on the right side of the page) so you'll be in the loop. How many times have you been to a fundraiser and then you wonder were the money went? Wouldn't it be cool if each organization was asking for funds, they would keep a record of what's going on with that project? For example, if the local people were raising funds to open a Masjid, it would be nice to be kept in the loop on what was going on with building that Masjid. Sometimes, months or years go by and then you ask yourself...uh..what happened to the "new" Masjid?..you know what I'm sayin'? I wanted people to know what is going on with UF and its projects This filmmaking thing is new to all of us and we're just learning along the way so JazakAllah khair for being patient with us.
Remember, no matter how much success we have in this life, the real success is seeing the fruits of our efforts on the Day of Judgment (that is if Allah (swt) accepts our efforts).
