Transcription

My son is deaf with additional disabilities. I do know a number of deaf Muslims cause I work with a small non-profit organization called Global Deaf Muslim. So, I’m connected with a lot of deaf Muslims in the community through my son, this just kind of opened up a whole new world for me that I didn’t even know existed. And basically, they follow what they see. And as they get older and more mature and understand, you know, someone who can communicate with them fluently can explain to them why. But, basically they follow what they see. It’s just taught visually. Deaf people learn everything visually, through pictures, through modelling, through of course, sign language. Masjid An-Nur is the first masjid in Minnesota to have sign language and interpreted sermons.
