Sometimes it is hard to explain to non-Muslims about the basics of Islam. Most of the time they can’t even pronounce the words or even remember them. But these words that we say everyday, “salaah, Allah, sawm” etc. are very important in our daily life.
Now imagine being deaf and how much of an issue this could become in today’s society where Islam is looked down upon and then trying to learn your religion. One of the issues is developing sign language for deaf Muslims for words and phrases related to Islam. Some aspects of it are developed but other’s aren’t.

This deaf sister is very active on Youtube doing Dawah via sign language. Truly amazing!
There are a few videos out there on Youtube where people translate the meaning of the Quran into sign language for deaf Muslims. It makes your grateful that you can hear but also stresses the need for more Muslims to do social work in this field since it’s one that is completely forgotten.
