An ASL poem devoted to Allah, inspired by Earth during my time in Costa Rica. I was in awe of Earth’s beauty while I was in Costa Rica, and it made me feel so close to Allah and I wanted to share it with you. I am a Muslim, and I am Deaf. I like to express my poetry / mi alma through American Sign Language. So, I wrote and performed “Allah Earth” in ASL, which I then translated into written English text. I took much of my inspiration from Sufi poets and Urdu poets, like Rumi and Faiz Ahmed Faiz.
Shot, edited, and performed by Sabina England.
