Me Muhammadi. We Muhammadi.


Watch short film to raise funds. May no father have to face this situation.

Posted on Dec 19, 2010 07:22:28 PM

This is a short film that I did as a Director and Cinematographer to help Kauthar TV raise funds for films that will hopefully make society better… Had very little time to design and execute this project but my team and me really put ourselves behind this…
Cast: Adnan Jilani, Saleem Raza, Tamoor Ali, Akash, Erum, Kuku, Lily and others

This film highlights the fact that coming generations learn more from the media than from anything else and we as Muslims have nothing much to show in the audio visual media. We have books and speakers but there is a serious lack of programming and films that can inform and emotionally motivate younger generations to come closer to our cherished values. We are losing the battle in the information age and are failing to transfer Islamic values to the next generation. Things can go very wrong if this trend continues. Act now before it is too late.

Let us make sure that no father has to face this…ever.

O month of Ramadan, go bye slowly. I still have debts to be cleared.

Ae mahe Ramadan ahista chal, Abhi khasa qarz chukana hy…

Kuch khwaab hain jinko likhna hy, Aur tabeeron ko paana hy…

Kuch log hain Ujray dil wale, Unn sab mein piyaar basaana hy…

Aur khiza Raseeda aangan mein ab aman ka beej lagana hy…

Kuch Tauba karni baaqi hy, Aur Rabb ko humein manana hy…

Ae mahe Ramadan ahista chal, Abhi khasa qarz chukana hy.

Why will a billion people give up food and water for 30 days in Ramadan once again? Hadith e Nabavi PBUH inside.

Posted on Aug 20, 2009 08:47:51 AM

How is that for a following? About 1400 years back one person asked his followers to fast in a particular way, and billions of people ever since have followed these injunctions. How did one person make us give up our lunch? Why do millions of people go thirsty for 30 days – sometimes even in scorching sun?

We are so selfish – then how did we agree to give up some of the most critical things in our life – food and water?

We fast because we know that he (PBUH) speaks for us and our benefit. We have never ever seen him say anything that would harm us. He had kind words and prayers even for his tormentors. He only wished good for us and did good to us. We have experienced only good from the system that he gave us.

We give up food and water because we trust him when he says it is good for us. And we keep discovering that goodness even today. We believe everything that he says because we are sure about his truthfulness. When he says that we are the recipients of honors and rewards from Allah in this month we believe it. Because he PBUH is the beloved of Allah SWT and who would know better about Allah SWT, than his beloved?

So instead of talking about the approaching Ramadan myself, I will reproduce below some things said by the master PBUH himself :

O People! The month of Allah (Ramadan) has approached you with HIS mercy and blessings. This is the month that is the best of all months in Allah’s view. Its days are the best among the days; its nights are the best among the nights. Its hours are the best among the hours.

This is a month in which he has invited you towards him. You have been, in this month, selected as the recipients of the honors of Allah, the Merciful. In this holy month, when you breathe, it has the Sawab/thawab (heavenly reward) of ‘Tasbeeh’ (the praise of Allah on rosary beads), and your sleep has the thawab of worship.

More films on Tauheed – shorter versions this time.

Posted on Aug 4, 2009 07:07:48 AM

In my last post I embedded some of my longer (45minutes+) films on the topic of Tauheed. These films were made for broadcast TV quite some time back. This time I have embedded a title song from a silent film that I did (without dialogues). Also included below is a song from my feature length film and a short promo for the TV series ‘Deedaar’ that was based on Tauheed. These shorter versions are for the benefit of those who could not spare the 90 minutes to watch the two full stories that were embedded in the last post.

Films on Tauheed

Posted on Aug 3, 2009 05:18:24 PM

I have been asked several times if I have done any films on Tauheed or Monotheism or on the topic of Allah SWT. I know why they ask. Most or all films that you see on my youtube channel or on my site have some element promoting the love of the noble Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
To answer this question I can only say that all my films have Allah SWT as their focus since praising and discussing the creation is actually praising and discussing the creator automatically. If you praise my website you are actually praising me.

Nevertheless I have actually made many films on the topic of Tauheed or Monotheism. Tauheed was taught by the Prophet PBUH and in fact it was he who got rid of the scourge of polytheism and paganism which plagued the world before him.

Below are two of my films made exclusively on Tauheed. These films try to examine atheism, the concept of God and our relationship with Allah SWT.
