The first ever Umrah catered for Deaf Muslims
The first ever Umrah catered for Deaf Muslims was organised by Al Isharah in April 2010. This was the first of its kind for the Deaf Muslim community across the UK. The group was welcomed by the mayor of Mecca and the Saudi based Deaf group.
All prophets was sent to benefit humankind in addition, they spoke the language of the people they were sent to.
As inheritance of the final prophetic legacy, it is utmost importance that the message can be accessed by all spectrum’s of society. As the prophet asked on the farewell pilgrimage, “Have I not conveyed the message?” The reply was “indeed we bear witness”. In essence the message is perfect and complete, however it is essential this is made accessible to every mankind in the entire world.
By making Islam accessible in sign language is a step towards us fulfilling this duty and passing on the prophetic inheritance.
