Salams,

This looks really awesome and will be released soon inshaAllah. People talk about Muslims needing heroes and people to look up to, this is definitely the kind of thing we need, spotlights on amazing ppl. I hope they make documentaries on more ppl like Imam Siraj, sr aminah assilimi etc.

Official trailer is finally out!!! Film releases Nov. 1st iA. It looks beautiful. Does anyone know how to donate to the Edhi foundation from abroad?? I'd really like to do that...

http://thedissolve.com/news/590-the-exclusive-trailer-for-these-birds-walk/#ooid=o4NzViZjouLO926BKj-38JlL48zhMt5-



    “Omar is a young runaway boy in Karachi, Pakistan, whose life hangs on one critical question: what is home going to mean for him? Is it going to be in the urban streets where he has made his life, an unstructured home for runaways, or the difficult rural family life he has been trying to flee? And might Omar find an answer in the hardened young man Asad, himself a former street kid and now an ambulance driver for the humanitarian Edhi Foundation who helps the children at Omar's orphanage return to their homes, often in dangerous territory and at great personal risk? A glancing, non-hagiographic examination of the work being done by humanitarian Abdul Sattar Edhi, often called ‘the Mother Teresa of Pakistan’ (seen fleetingly throughout the movie), These Birds Walk is both heart-wrenching and life-affirming, documenting the struggles of these wayward street children and the samaritans looking out for them in an ethereal, poetic story of resilience.”

Gorgeous imagery and unusual subject matter suggest this is a film to keep on your radar this fall. It opens in theaters on November 1. For more information, check out the film’s official website.

Wow, subhanAllah...may Allah bless their work.  The boy is so young but he knows Allah, speaking to Him and asking for his help.

We cannot all devote our lives to a single worthy cause, but we can each contribute even a little of our time, money, effort, and talents...inshaAllah. No child should have to live under such conditions...

Hope to watch the whole documentary, inshaAllah. Waiting for it..
Salam
