As salam Alaykium brothers and sister,

I wanted to see if there were any other deaf Shia on here?  I live in Washington DC and get pretty isolated because I have not met any other deaf Shia.  Maybe someone knows of ASL interpreted lectures online?

Forgive me if this is the wrong place to post.

Welcome to Shiachat :)

Are you looking for islamic lectures? Why don't you transcribe the video or audio lectures to text, or maybe look for lectures with subtitles? These would be more easily available than ASL interpreted lectures.

I do not find lectures with transcripts most of the time.  With subtitles if it is youtube the automatic subtitles are awful.  I do read a lot of books.

But why I want ASL lectures is because ASL is my first language.

wa 'alaykum assalam,

Do you read French by any chance? This channel as many long videos translated:

With English subtitles there are only a few that I know of, and the videos are unfortunately not very long (although there are still hours of footage)

This channel is mostly in Arabic, but there are still a couple of dozen short clips if you search

This is Adnan Ibrahim, he is a Sunni, but he says some interesting things:

@DeafShia

assalam 'alaykum,

Brother, if you had transcirpts, would you be willing to do the sign language for them?

Do you know International Sign Language?

I do not know ISL.  But I goto Gallaudet University which is a Deaf university and we have students here that are fluent in ISL.  I can ask them if they would be willing to help.  I am very happy to use the transcripts and create ASL videos though.  I will ask my friends today that know ISL.

But then how would you understand the videos?

Ok find out, and we can try and get this project off the ground insha'Allah

Do let me know if I can help in anyway.

Thanks, yes, I think that this will need to be a joint project as transcribing can take a while, but if several people do 5 minutes each things would go quicker insha'Allah

    • Oh actually I live in a little nowhereville, but it's part of a metro area that just crosses the million population mark. I might have voted wrong. 
    • May Allah bless you and forgive your sins, Tib Al-A’imma: http://www.duas.org/tibb.htm
    • سبحان الله The soul and body are separate of each other, Humans have free will, when they talk ill about Allah, they cannot harm Him, for it is their desire to do so. And We will turn their hearts and their sights, even as they did not believe in it the first time, and We will leave them in their inordinacy, blindly wandering on. Every Angel has a specific task, One obeys Allah alone, One causes the rain, One searches for people that remember Allah, One is upon the shoulders of a Believer for defending him against the Accursed Shaytan, And by Allah, They do not have senses like pain equal to us, But they are limited in knowledge, When Allah calls them for a task, They shall execute His will, But they can fall in misunderstanding the orders, like Iblees refused to prostrate to Adam, He did not prostrate because he felt himself far superior than a mortal of the essence of black mud fashioned in shape. I am not such that I should make obeisance to a mortal whom Thou hast created of the essence of black mud fashioned in shape. From this, you know that the human has free will, and it is Allah who guides whom He wills, And you shall understand that this life is a test, from your birth to the final stages of life, Where the Shaytan tries it’s last time to deviate you from the Right Path. And We have revealed to you the Book with the truth, verifying what is before it of the Book and a guardian over it, therefore judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their low desires (to turn away) from the truth that has come to you; for every one of you did We appoint a law and a way, and if Allah had pleased He would have made you (all) a single people, but that He might try you in what He gave you, therefore strive with one another to hasten to virtuous deeds; to Allah is your return, of all (of you), so He will let you know that in which you differed. For Allah has made this life a test for the people, He brought Messengers and Prophets to every Ummah, To notify of His Greatness and Mercy, But some wander blindly in their own ignorance, Ignorance in wordly desires, So much, that when the Heavens are shown to them, They believe these are clouds on top of one another.
    • Yes, bro: but surely all of that will be worth it, in order to have Unity?! Don't forget: We are all Muslims!
    • @Mosa Salam Mosa, We have not got any emails from you. Please let me know which email you have contacted. Thanks
