“Allah Earth” a new short film which I shot and performed in Costa Rica. Islamic Sign Language Poetry, inspired by Sufi poets and inspired by my love for Allah and being awestruck by the beauty of Earth. I am a Muslim, and I am Deaf; I like to express my soul  through American Sign Language, so I wanted to combine Sufi Islamic poetry and ASL together. I was inspired by great Sufi and Urdu poets, like Rumi and Faiz Ahmed Faiz.

Please watch in 1080 HD. Closed Captioning is available for Deaf viewers who are not fluent in American Sign Language.
