A Television Series that Reshapes the Public Conversation about Islam & Muslims in Canada
SUPPORT LET THE QURAN SPEAK THIS RAMADAN
Now more than ever, Canadians need God. We cannot be sure if (or when) life will go back to the way it was before COVID-19. While vulnerable individuals are being helped with food and income support, we have spiritual needs that need to be fulfilled too. So many of us are desperately in need of hope and faith.
At a time when religious institutions are closed, Let the Quran Speak (LQS) is readily accessible on TV and social media. We are equipped with the right tools and professional and religious know-how to provide guidance, reassurance and love for people who feel spiritually lost and helpless.
In mid-March, our producer retrieved our equipment from the mosque housing them. Dr. Shabir Ally and Dr. Safiyyah Ally then combined these with their own resources to set up studios in their respective homes. Our production team patiently guided them through the process of setting up and using the equipment. Dr. Shabir and Dr. Safiyyah now record interviews in their home and are striving to reach standards that are as close as possible to the high-quality viewers of LQS are familiar with.
But this isn’t enough. Our team wants to get back to doing what we do best: telling stories. We want to explore the ways COVID-19 is transforming our communities, religious traditions and family customs. We can share stories of hope and resiliency and care. We want to do this creatively, while respecting physical distancing and safety regulations. To do this, we need to continue transforming our production work.
Support LQS so we can purchase equipment, expand our editing work, and hire an animator to help us present our work creatively and professionally. Our work is Zakat-eligible and tax-deductible.
