Director Statement

My purpose is to compare between a Deaf perspective and a Hearing perspective because at present it is well popularised of hearing reverting to Islam through the media e.g. television and online e.g.YouTube, especially the wider audience watch them, reason the are in demand is they want to know "Why" and "How?"

What about Deaf? The reason why I produced a documentary is to show the audience to see that Deaf reverts to Islam and for the wider audience including the Deaf audience as well, all have the same question "Why?" and "How?"
