demanding ban a film on the life of the Prophet Muhammad SAWW
« on: September 03, 2015, 07:24:50 PM »
Prominent Sunni Muslim scholars are demanding that Tehran ban a film on the life of the Prophet Muhammad that was released on August 27, though it is expected to break box-office records in Shi'ite Muslim Iran.

Scholars at Egypt's Al-Azhar, the most prestigious institute of Sunni Islam, said they are not satisfied with elaborate precautions taken by the director of Muhammad, Messenger Of God to avoid depicting Muhammad throughout the 171-minute movie, the first in a planned trilogy of films that focuses on the Prophet's childhood.

Majid Majidi, the Oscar-nominated director, deferred to Islamic strictures by not showing the boy-actor's face on screen and showing him only from behind, or only his shadow.

"This matter is already settled. Shari'a prohibits embodying the prophets," said Professor Abdel Fattah Alawari, dean of the Islamic theology faculty at Al-Azhar.

"It is not permissible in Islam [because an actor] has contradictory and conflicting roles; sometimes we see him as a blind drunk, sometimes as a womanizer...and then he embodies a prophet... This is not permissible," he told Reuters.

have you guys seen how they use what look like a transvestite model to portray Rasulullah shallallahu alaihi wasallam? This thing is a non issue for shia. They dont care.

There was an old movie called "The message" I watched it and it was good. In that movie we never see the Prophet (saw) rather you see a stick at one point which isn't an issue. It seems though that in this new movie the Prophet (saw) is being portrayed or played by some actor, this we do not accept at all, even if it's normal for Iranians to draw his pictures in their shrines and temples yet we do not permit it, not even his finger peace be upon him.

For the time being, I just hope the movie does not contain major inaccuracies, as you all know the Shiites are the last people to know anything about the Seerah, they don't even have any sources, it's most likely that the writer//director simply used popular Sunni books of Seerah and hopefully no fairytales from Shiite books. 
عَلامَةُ أَهْلِ الْبِدَعِ الْوَقِيعَةُ فِي أَهْلِ الأَثَرِ. وَعَلامَةُ الْجَهْمِيَّةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ السُّنَّةِ مُشَبِّهَةً. وَعَلامَةُ الْقَدَرِيَّةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ السُّنَّةِ مُجَبِّرَةً. وَعَلامَةُ الزَّنَادِقَةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ الأَثَرِ حَشْوِيَّةً

Religion = simple & clear
