What makes Ummah Films different?
We provide a Halaal (Islamically permissible) alternative form of
entertainment with a positive message. Insha' Allah (God willing),
we hope to change the negative stereotypes of Muslims and make films
that Muslims (as well as others) can relate to. For Ummah Films,
Islam will always comes first so therefore, we will not compromise
for the sake of being "artistic" or otherwise - no naked
people, no cursing, no Haraam (prohibited in Islam) period. Unlike
other artists, we do not think that you have to mock Islam or Muslims
to be funny and to us, that type of approach is not funny at all.
Instead we try to use humor to the nonsense actions Muslims do to
bring attention to it and so people will remember.
How come you guys don't have any advertisements
on your site?
Ummah Films is not a business where we will ever be remotely involved
in selling anything Haraam. We are afraid that if we added "Google
Ads" or anything similar to our site to generate funds for
future projects, that Google or other sites might try to sell Haraam
stuff. Thus out of fear of Allah (swt), we have decided not to go
that route. Alhamdulillah (praise be to God), we have both shirts
and DVDs to sell, so if we raise funds from these items, then we
use that profit to make future projects Insha' Allah.
Is it true that all women in your
movies will be wearing Hijab, even the non-Muslim actresses?
Yes. We want to provide a positive role model for women. Today,
the role models for women are your typical "Barbie-like"
image and many women think that they have to look like that to fit
in. Islam gave women honor and we are tired of seeing Muslim women
on TV shown in an inferrior way. Anytime you turn on the TV and
you see a sister in Hijab she is either crying, being oppressed,
etc. We want to change this image Insha' Allah.
I have an idea for a future project.
Who can I sent it to?
We are always open to ideas so please email your ideas and suggestions
What does Ummah Films saying about
We completely condemn terrorism. Islam and Terrorism have nothing
to do with each other. Unfortunately, many people do not know this.
How can I support Ummah Films?
You can buy a T-shirt, a DVD, comment on the blog, and most importantly
tell your friends and family about it. The ultimate goal is to be
successful on the Day of Judgment, so we want to collect as many
good deeds as possible Insha' Allah. Each film and video has a positive
message so that we can all benefit from and if you benefit from it,
then we have accomplish our goal Insha' Allah. So please let others
know so they can benefit from it as well!
