Salam Brother ALi - That was a great way to wrap up the series. A great lesson for all of us, no matter what age we happen to be. Once again, may your efforts be rewarded and much thanks for this series. All the best with the movie and whatever other future endeavors you choose. Take care. Peace

Ameen. What a great note to end it on. I have tried to start things in the community before and the number of people who show up at the planning meetings is always much greater than the number of people who show up for the actual work. We have to get past this if we want success for this ummah.

Here's a great big TAKBIR!!! for the people who are actually doing things rather than just talking about them. Which (of course) I think includes of you at Ummah Films. Masha'Allah.

Salama bro

I think your point is current. Only real thing I've got to add is that people need to be aware that money is not the only thing they can put into the community to help each other out, it can be the knowledge from your job etc, time to volunteer and help local groups. Thank you for the videos. Hopefully I did not sound like I was moaning!

Take care all and remember smile.

salam alikum
very great video
always people complain but are not able to see further than their nose.
i advise you to take a look in www.bilin-village.org
it's a palestinian village where people choose to fight in a very intelligent way instead of spending their time to complain.
please take a look, Allah subhanahu may show inshaAllah how lucky you are and how it is important to do things by your own means because no one will do it in youur place.

Bismillaah

As Salaamu 'alaykum all,

JazakAllaah for such an entertaining clip! And of course, it hits bull's eyes. I used to complain too, until i realized that if everyone is like me, the world will never change. So, i change! Alhamdulillaah.

InshaAllaahu ta'ala, i pray that you have more videos to come!

Salaams

hey! WHy complain about the complainers?
Make an excuse for them aswell bro... maybe they havin a bad day, maybe they been accosted by the "Haram Police", maybe they got good reason to correct you too (maybe they do have more knowledge).

what U say is true though, just tryin some charity.

It's kind of funny because within some of the UF team this is still an issue...at least with the forums team--well actually it's probably just me whose doing the complaining

Very true indeed. We should all play our part and make a difference rather than complaining about stuff.

Jazakallahu khairan kasiran.
Peace be upon you :D

Hi Baba Ali,

I saw this opportunity for film makers and I was thinking it might be of use to you! This is for Barack Obama supporters by the way. Basically, you make a 30 second ad in support of Obama, and upload it to youtube, a panel of judges choose the best video, and your ad gets aired nationally on tv. You also get a prize of $20,000 in film equipment, and of course name recognition for the ad. I thought this would be a great opportunity for talented film makers like yourself to get the name out there in the mainstream while you're in the process of making "Tomorrow Never Comes." The deadline for submitting your ad is April 1st, 2008. Please check out the official contest site:

I hope you consider the contest :)

I think we could win awards in complaining. Anyways someone mentioned free food in the masjid. I notice anytime there is free anything in the masjid, a bunch of people who otherwise never come are there. And guess what they do when they are there? Complain about the food, arrangements, bathrooms etc. It is very annoying, and they

Salaam! Brother Ali, I feel the same but I would like to point out that sometimes when people complain it is really just to feed their egos, to help them feel better than another. That is my take on people who complain. Might I add also your videos are great, when are more coming?
