Somebody brave decided to do something about the rising problem of Adultery among Muslims.

Posted on Jan 24, 2010 03:17:46 AM

I am impressed by brother Zamir Afzal’s sincere concern for Muslim brothers and sisters across the world. He saw people falling prey to indecency and fornication. Post marital affairs are rising above all danger levels. He decided to do something about it.

He searched online, found me and gave me the task of making a film that would remind and warn. It was a challenge to do this film. It had to be decent and it had to scare people away from adultery.

I felt that my prime task here was to be able to engage audiences and make the fear of punishment feel real. I have tried and have just finished this film. Am doing the English subtitles for the film now. You can however watch a trailer of the film without subtitles below. The full film with English subtitles will be released by brother Zamir Afzal of www.nooreislam.tk

Promiscuity and Post Marital Adultery – A curse of our times. Watch new film to address this issue soon.

Brother Zamir Afzal of www.nooreislam.tk recently gave me a mandate to produce a film for him. His goal was clear – he wanted me to make a film that would move people away from the great sin of Adultery. He felt that the issue of adultery especially post marital adultery was becoming so common that the ummah seems to have forgotten the ill effects of this act. He wanted to bring the effects of this major sin to the forefront.

Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alayhe Wa Aalehi Wa Sallam has forbidden this act and warned us that this act takes man (and woman) into the pits of darkness – in this life as well as the hereafter. We have listened to the warner who has always saved us by warning about things that we may not know. We have always benefited from following this warner and the giver of good tidings.

The challenge in this film was to show the effects of ‘Zina’ or adultery and yet remain within the realm of visual decency. Another challenge was to try and scare people away from this act – even those who do not take afterlife seriously. We have tried to do this by showing real life situation in an elevator instead of showing afterlife in a traditional way. We felt that real life situations like getting stuck in an elevator scares people more than traditional situations which they have chosen to ignore or have become immune to.

I have just finished shooting the film and have gone into the post production phase. I should be able to put up the trailer of the film soon. The full film will be released worldwide by Mr. Zamir Afzal of www.nooreislam.tk

It was a good effort by brother Zamir to attempt to tackle a burning issue of the ummah. May Allah and his Habeeb Sallallaho Alayhe Wa Aalehi Wa Sallam be pleased with his noble effort and grant him success in his mission to spread the divine message. May Allah bless us all.
