So I think the time has come that I stop talking about islam this and Muslim that. Deaf Read readers apparently don't want to hear about my endevors on completely translating on my own the entire Quran? Fine. Deaf first. i get it. Let's stay equal, after all we are all deaf. Are we? i go back to my first post, you read it right? oh you didn't? Ah, see that's why.
Recently I read about a person being attacked by the words of another person, and basically the comment was that the post writer was not deaf because he could "hear" his cell phone ring (the blog was talking about notifications of flight delays and such). The poster wrote back to the person and said that the cell was on vibrate and he felt it, and answered it.
It's things like this that really disgust me about people's judgment. That, and feeling like I have to be deaf first and Muslim second. Right now, being in this town, there is little to no activity, yet my heart is strong.
When I first started learning to sign, my teacher said I had a gift, and I didn't' believe her. I only believed her when people praised my signing ability. At my great-uncle's death, the preacher had worked with the deaf and knew I had a good heart he told me. It left me wondering where to go.
I see that even though I put my heart and soul into just one blog post, people don't' get it, and i don't' understand why. Deaf have been oppressed for ages, yes, and I'm trying to do something about it. Deaf Muslims in particular have been kept from their religion just as some deaf have been kept from their culture and language. So I tried to help them by the translation.
I guess I expected too much. You guys aren't' Muslim, why should you care about a translation of a book you could care less about? *sighs* I don't' know where I stand in the blogging right now. I was just trying to be helpful.
