Seeking Volunteers to help with the Ummah Films

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

We often get emails from viewers that see the impact of the Reminder videos and want to help. We often get emails from those who are hearing impaired and want to watch the videos, but since they are deaf and there are no subtitles in English, they a have difficult time watching. I really didn't think these videos would take off the way they did so I didn't keep many of the scripts.

So if there are viewers out there who want to help us get these videos to the hearing impaired community, please email us InshAllah. The process is pretty simple. Just open up notepad. Watch one of the video and type what you hear InshAllah. In order to be consistent, start a new line with each cut so it will make it easy to subtitle InshAllah. Just contact the info@ummahfilms.com and let us know which video you're doing and when you think you can do it by. That way we don't have 10 people doing the same video :)

Many people, including myself, don't realize the gifts that Allah (swt) has given us (hearing, sight, etc.. until we lose it. If you do have the time and would like to help the Muslims and non-Muslims who want to watch these videos, please contact us InshAllah. info@ummahfilms.com

May Allah (swt) reward you for your efforts

let me work on the "Distractions During Salat". should hv it done by 27th july, inshaAllah.
(i think the idea to translate the subtitle to other languages might as well help to spread the message)

I like Taz's idea. If the subtitle for Eglish done, I like to translate to my language (Malay/Malaysia)

Walaikum Salam,

I just finished the $25,000 Muslim Wedding script. I didn't realize how much improv I did so it took a while.
The best way that worked for me was that I would goto YouTube and press play and pause after each line & then I would type it up. Then I would do repeat the process. Finally, I played the video at full speed once the script was finished to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Anyways its done and I sent it to info@ummahfilms.com so take that video off the list.

As salaam alaikum,

Here are the ones that still need to be done.

Why Islam
Pursuit of Cleanliness
Parent Negotiations
Fisibilillah Discount
Ramadan Reruns
Thats not Hijab
Who Hijacked My Religion
Culture vs. Islam
Seasonal Muslims
Muslim While Flying
Spouse Online

Ali, are there going to be subtitles on the DVDs?

I am going to take Why Islam, and work my way down the list, inshaa Allah. I don't know how long it is going to take since I have never done it before, but I think it shouldn't take more the a couple of days. Meaning that it would take 22 days for ME to finsih the other 11. I got one, ten left.


This is your chance to be apart of the dawah, and leave your fingerprint on this project, inshaa Allah.

May Allah'swt except all of our work and good deeds... Ameen!
