We had a ‘Muslim Deaf Community Stall’ for the 2nd time ever at the NSW annual Deaf Festival 2018.
A few years ago, I went to the deaf festival for the first time. I still remember I was the only visible, Muslim person wearing the hijab.
A few people came up to me and asked me questions like “why do you wear that on your head” and what do you eat?”
I realized that more awareness and understanding is needed in the Deaf Community about Islam and Muslims.
Last year, we were lucky to be asked by the Deaf Society to have a stall to promote understanding about Islam and we had so much fun.
We also felt like we had to have another stall this year and continue raising awareness.
This year, at our stall, people were able to try dates, try on Islamic clothing such as hijab and men’s caps, and ask us any question they have.
Thank you to my friends who helped set up this stall, despite many issues and hiccups along the way.
It was also nice to catch up with many friends in the Deaf Community, make connections and see more Muslims attend the festival.
Allhumdillah (All praise be to God) for another successful event.
