As college students, we are well aware of all the worldly aspects in life that can detract us from our faith. Every day we face a struggle with materialism and spirituality, and many times, the former wins out. With constant distractions facing us in our everyday life, we need a perpetual reminder of our religion in order to stay in tune with life’s priorities. When making the short film Fajr, we wanted to remind people about how much of a difference making the right decision between materialism and spirituality can make. We wanted to show the world that religion is not a distraction, but an investment into one’s life.
