Taqwa and Knowedge for Deaf Muslims

The Uttrujj Foundation have tried to address the need for Islamic education and knowledge geared towards deaf Muslims through their "Taqwa and Knowedge" course which is aimed at supporting Muslims with sensory impairments.

This video asks some of the attendees of the course what they thought about it. It makes for insightful and moving viewing.

This course is taught by Shaykh Abdul Aziz Ahmed who is a teacher specialising in supporting children with Additional Support Needs in mainstream schools in Scotland. He has been involved in publishing, translating and editing Islamic journals and books.

The foundation are also trying to raise funds to run the course with their "Supporting Muslims with Sensory Impairments Appeal", you can find out more here and donate here.
