New Ummmah Films series: "Ask Baba Ali"

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,


Whenever I go to an event, I often get the "Hey bro, I know you but you don't know me" comment and then we both smile :) It’s weird because viewers know me and my personality through the videos (yeah that’s really me) but I don’t really don’t know them until I meet them in person. In the process of the show becoming popular, we started to get more and more emails from viewers asking for advice on various issues. Maybe there asking me because they feel comfortable with me or maybe its because of what I said above (they know me but I don’t know them), which for some people makes it easier because there is no history between us and they’re pretty much anonymous. Honestly, I don’t know exactly what it is but what I do know is that we get lots of emails from viewers asking advise. And then it hit me…why not make a new videos series based on this concept? You know what I’m sayin’ :)

We’ll call the show Ask Baba Ali. It’s kind of like the Reminder series but it’s interactive because the questions comes from the viewers. Will this idea work? I have no idea. The success isn’t in our hands. All we can do is put in the effort and rest is in the hands of Allah (swt).

Since I’m not a scholar nor will I pretend to be one, I kindly ask you not to send me any fiqhy questions. These series is more like friendly advise videos InshAllah. Oh yeah, one more thing, please try to keep the questions short so it doesn't become a "question reading video" if you know what I mean

If you got a question you want to be submitted for the show, just email
ask@ummahfilms.com

To keep things consistent, please use this format:

Asalamu Aleikum, Baba Ali. I just wanted to say that I don't think it's appropriate for you to embarrass soemone else's efforts by saying at the end of your discription that there was a guy who wrote six pages and his wife this and that and etc etc. All you had to say was "Please try not to send too much info at once" or "try to keep the questions short." I think that would be much nicer. Now, if that guy who actually wrote all of that to u reads what u wrote, he's probably going to become displeased and feel dishonored by u.

May God help you succeed with the new videos.

Assalamu Alaikum

quick comment on the last post. I agree that it is hard next to impossible to guage other peoples sensitivities. All you can do is purify your intention and TRY to do whats right. Personally, I think Baba Ali covered his bases by being very general about that example. True that brother or his wife may see the comment but it was in no way insulting it just mentioned he wrote 6 pages etc and they obviously read the email however those types of email may not be suitable for the proposed project.
On the other hand MashaAllah I love the idea Ali. I hope that you allow your questions to be submitted by video as well as you may be surprised by the outcome. let us know if we can be of help Insha'Allah. Best of "luck" on this one.
Assalamu Alaikum

Walaikum Salam,

The email came from a non-Muslim who wanted to give his 2 cents about what he thinks of Muslims and yes, he wrote 6 pages. He mentioned in that email that he would continue writing but his wife advised him to finally stop and he did.

I don't think there is anything wrong or embarrassing about it. The point I was trying to make is to make the questions short so the videos don't become a "question reading video" if you know what I mean. I'm sorry if anyone took offensive with the example I used (it wasn't meant to be offensive).

Anyways, I will reword that part of the post.

okay well u have to take other ppl's considerations into play and just because u dont think it was offensive doesn't mean that no one else would. like i said, all u have to do is ask for short emails. its not that hard, BABA ALI. U used excaimation marks and it seemed to be pretty sarcastic.. so... thats all i meant by it.
