The witness. A film on namaz and punishment of the grave

After the huge success of his earlier film (Aik Mauqa), brother Zamir Afzal has once again sponsored a film that reminds us of that stage which we have not yet seen or understood fully. Death is a fact but it is so strange that we need to be reminded about it. Death is a reality that nobody can deny. Brother Zamir gave me the topic for this film – “Namaz and Adhaab-e-Qabr”.

He wanted to remind us all about the reality of death and about our salah/namaz before it is too late. He wanted to use the audiovisual medium of film to do this emotionally and effectively. He wanted the film to be a stark and dark reminder about the consequences of ignoring namaz. We then took his vision and tried to transform his vision into a film that can be watched, enjoyed and remembered by audiences for a long time to come. The film is now almost complete and we have named it “The Witness” or “Gawah” in urdu. It is an urdu language film with subtitles in English.

The film is almost done and the trailer will be launched here soon. After the official launch by brother Zamir, I will be posting the video on my youtube channel and on my website too.

Our creative team has packaged brother Zamir’s vision into an interesting story about a couple who disagree on ideologies. The husband is a TV anchor person and has a lot of female fans. The wife starts seeing things and persons in her house. Is it her imagination? Is it her jealousy? Or is she suffering from a mental illness like her mother?

The picture in this post is a poster that we designed for brother Zamir Afzal who is planning a massive campaign and distribution of this film on broadcast TV and DVDs. We have plans to distribute “The Witness” in film festivals too. Brother Zamir’s vision is to get this film the widest audience possible and he is going all out to make this possible.

May Allah bless him and other brothers and sisters who participated in this grand project. Please pray for the successful launch and distribution of this film and also for all those who took part in this film. Remember me in your prayers too.

  5. Quran Tutor Said,

    Importance of Quran Education For Muslims
    Holy Quran is the base of every Muslims life. He/she has to set his/her code of conduct according to Quran to become a true Muslim and not just a namely Muslim. This is not tough at all, but what it requires the most is Quran Education. Quran education is an important phenomenon under discussion especially amongst the people living in western democracies.
    Quran education does not mean only education of Quran reading but it encompasses much more than that, Tajweed being the most important of all. Quran education needs deep devotion, time, dedication, and above all, you need to have a specialized teacher for this purpose, since not every nonprofessional can be a Quran Tutor.
    For this purpose, there are many companies offering online Quran education to the people living in the western democracies, who do not have access to the Quran teaching institutes there. They can benefit from these virtual institutes, which not only save their money, but time and energy of travelling to far areas as well.
