Sound Vision has an amazing team of volunteers who do most of the work along with its small professional staff and a volunteer board.  Above a team of volunteers are working to get a mailing out. Some not pictured are actually sitting on floor getting the work done. Close to 300 people volunteers every year with us. Some give as much as 20 hours a week. Our board of directors includes some exceptional leaders. Two of them have been selected among the 500 most influential Muslims in the world. 

A quarter of a century ago, August 1988, to be precise, Sound Vision decided to do something a little different. And today, with a daily audience of 70,000, two million lessons, and thousands of articles later, it's clear that that decision changed the lives of both Muslims and non-Muslims the world over for the better.

Sound Vision will be celebrating its 25th birthday in 2013. We are inviting Muslim intellectuals, Nobel Laureates, and peace and justice leaders in America to honor us throughout this year.

Muslims continue to routinely complain about how the Western media misrepresents Islam and Muslims. However, we have rarely reaped the benefits of using this same resource to define and share who we are and our perspective. This is where Sound Vision comes in.

The Reach

  • Daily, Sound Vision reaches over 60,000 people
  • Our website, which is focused on how to live Islam in a hands-on, practical way, is among the top 59,000 websites of the United States
  • Our documentaries have been shown in 28 countries, including on 68 channels in North America

The Pioneer

  • Islamic software like Al-Qari has been featured by ABC News and Newsweek on its science page
  • Sound Vision’s award-winning Adam’s World children’s program showcases the first English-language Muslim puppet characters. These were created by a colleague of Jim Henson, of Sesame Street fame. Adam is to Muslims what Mickey Mouse is to Disney
  • Professionally produced Islamic songs in English were absent until we persuaded Yusuf Islam to sing and introduced Dawud Wharnsby Ali
  • America’s only Muslim daily radio show, Radio Islam on WCEV 1450 AM, has interviewed 5,000 guests, including three Nobel Laureates

Tips for Living Islam

  • We have produced 12,000 pieces of content on the applied aspect of Islamic living in the Western context
  • 600 Imams and 2,500 Muslim teachers benefit from our products
  • Sound Vision has assisted in high profile television programs for PBS, BBC, and the Discovery Channel

Resources for Family

Sound Vision has pioneered development of original, free, tip-oriented resources about living Islam in the Western context. It discusses topics ranging from holidays to parenting, women's issues to social services, and the reaching out by building relationships. We issue newsletters focused on the real issues parents, Imams and teachers face. This is why more people come to Sound Vision every day than the websites of most of the national Muslim organizations.

“Sound Vision, is a bit of Disney, PBS, Microsoft, and Oprah all rolled into one.”
