Director's Statement

I decided to make this film to show a different narrative of Islam which is unfortunately not very well seen. I've read the Qur'an and I believe in it's inclusive and universal message. A message of Tolerance, Love, and Compassion. Ablution will shed the light on the journey of a young Muslim American man trying to make room for love in a religiously intolerant place.
