The internet is an expansive gateway of knowledge, which has resulted in more and more people using it as their primary source for understanding Islam. In the past a class, talk, lecture or khutbah may be heard by 200 or so people. Now thanks to YouTube that same speech may impact tens, If not hundreds of thousands of people spanning the globe.  YouTube is an exceptionally powerful tool because humans by nature are visual learners. Around 65%-85% of people define themselves as visual learners. This means they form perceptions more so from what they see than what they read. In a day and age where trying to reach the masses entails competing against very high end media productions, the need for us to look professional and produce quality material is very important. 
For this reason I encourage you to assist in the raising of funds to purchase some semiprofessional equipment for our brother Nick Pelletier, who is a recent graduate of the Islamic University in Medina, and is currently an imam at a mosque in Houston.  He  has ambitions of not only recording his weekly lectures, classes and khutbas, but also developing a website with daily videos for new Muslims, as well as complete courses in various Islamic studies.  
Many of us would love to be a means of guidance for someone. and the reward that such an act entails. Imagine being able to reach thousands of people with the message of Islam.  The prophet peace be upon him said, “Whoever guides someone to a good deed, he shall have the reward like the one who did it.”  You may not have the knowledge or skill to teach Islam to an audience, but your financial help with allow those that can, and insha’Allah you will carry the reward for their efforts. The following items are listed to breakdown the cost of starting this project:

1.      Two Cannon XF100 Professional Camcoders for $2,499 each.

2.      15' MacBook Pro with Retna Display, 2.8 GHZ and Turbo Boost, 1TB, and Final Cut Pro  for $3,398.99.

3.      Motion: Additional Editing Software for graphics, credits, introductions, and special effects  for $49.99

4.      Green Screen and Lighting Equipment $550

  Jazakallahukhayr,
