Friday Khutbas in ASL
The deaf people have long felt isolated as most of Islam, Quran, and prayer teaching/education is done orally through lectures, Khutbas, and halaqas, and such information is seldom available in sign language, making it difficult to educate deaf Muslims about Islam. Deaf Muslims, thus, cannot benefit from the mosque and its programs unless there are interpreters available. IANT addressed this growing problem in the deaf Muslim community and introduced live ASL translation of their Jummah khutba, bringing deaf Muslims to the mosque, and being amongst their hearing brothers and sisters comfortably.
We are so happy to reconnect with the deaf community by sharing the weekly Khutbas in ASL. We hope this will give you a deeper understanding of the wisdom behind Allah’s words. We pray that you continue to draw strength and gain knowledge from Allah’s book. We hope you benefit from these Khutbas in ASL. Please share with your deaf and hard-of-hearing friends and family.
