Firstly, an update for all friends and well wishers who are wondering why my posts are not as frequent as they should be in the month of Ramadan. Ramadan and pre-Ramadan was quite busy for me since I was working on two films for my dear friend Mukhtar ul Mustafa.

One film was titled ‘The Days of Darkness’ which portrayed the era before Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This story was told through the eyes of a mother whose daughter is taken for being buried alive. The short film highlights Read the rest of this entry »

Even good deeds will become worthless, while you remain unaware – Allah warns in the Quran.

Posted on Aug 26, 2009 12:50:31 PM

Unimaginable!!! Allah tells us in the Quran about one act that can nullify all our deeds!!! And that too while we remain unaware about it!!! Here is the Ayat of the Quran in which there is a great warning by Allah SWT:

Allah offers forgiveness to certain people in the Holy Quran.

Posted on Aug 26, 2009 12:22:36 PM

Since Ramadan is the month wherein the Holy Quran is recited most frequently, this Ramadan, I will try and put up a few posts based on some of the ayats of the Quran.

We try so hard in Ramadan to get our sins forgiven. We try so hard in Ramadan to get special rewards from Allah SWT. And Allah offers these two big gifts to certain people. It might surprise you that in the Quran, Allah offers forgiveness and great reward to people for a very simple looking act. What is that simple yet effective act of worship? In the Quran Allah SWT says:

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.

What is that image on the green flag?

Posted on Aug 4, 2009 03:27:42 PM

In one of my naat videos I have used a green flag with an image on it. This green flag represents peace and harmony in the story of the video as you can see in the video embedded further down in this post.

Till date at least 7-8 people have asked me what that image on the green flag was. Maybe they had never seen this image before or maybe the image was not clear enough in the video. This post is to clarify what that image really was.

That image was the image/impression of the highly respected relic of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) sandals. This relic and the associated impression/image represents the sandals that once touched the holy feet of the Prophet (PBUH). These sandals have also gone to the highest heavens when the Prophet PBUH went for Meraj.

Why use it as a symbol of peace and harmony in the video? Because the master who wore these slippers stood for peace and harmony. We print it on flags, we print it on paper. We kiss the paper on which it is printed and we venerate it. Just like we kiss and venerate the Quran which is printed on paper but which represents the blessed Quran that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad PBUH by Allah SWT.

We are impressed by that great person who prayed for those who stoned him mercilessly. The woman who chewed his dear uncle’s liver after having him killed got amnesty – and that too when this great Prophet PBUH was in total control of her city and could have her beheaded. And this amnesty was extended to many other people who were cruel to this Prophet of peace (PBUH).

We are so impressed that we search for relics and symbols associated with him. One such relic are the sandals shown in the video below. We are impressed with him and we are grateful to him. And hence we go to Medina to see the city where he stayed, to pay our respects to him, to thank him. Our eyes strain to see the signs and symbols associated with the life of this great Prophet. But alas these symbols have been destroyed. His place of birth has been converted to a building. Other symbols have been destroyed. We are shooed when we try to thank him in front of his final resting place. His mother’s grave has been bulldozed and gasoline was poured on it!!!

I dedicate this video below to that great mother who gave birth to the greatest creation of Allah SWT.
His sandals are dear to us, and his mother is dearer.
Very dear to us are his family – the Ahle Bayt (RA).

Watch the video below and enter and dedicate your comments for that noble mother of the noblest creation:

Wanted sponsors and co-producers for mega tv series and feature film

Posted on Jul 18, 2009 09:40:46 AM

muhammadi.me is now working on a mega television series and a 70 minute film for broadcast television. A feature length film for theatrical and DVD release is also on the cards. All projects are about human relationships and emotions and aim to promote love for the benevolent creation of the beneficent creator. All projects in pipeline aim to foster better relationships within the ummah of the noble Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and with people outside the ummah as was the vision of the great visionary who prayed for people who stoned him and forgave those who had hounded him and drove him out of his home to die in the harsh wilderness. His mercy was such that he granted amnesty to those who took shelter in the house of the woman who chewed his dear uncle Hamza’s (RA) liver after having him killed.

We have secured funds for the 70 minute telefilm from friends and relatives but still awaiting funds for the mega TV series and the feature film. We invite you all to participate in our projects as sponsors and/or co-producers. Anyone can participate and for any amount big or small. You can also pitch in by giving us ideas, scripts, shooting locations, logistical support, distribution support and any other support that you can offer.

Help us spread the true message and the vision of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who was a mercy to all mankind. Share this post and let others know about this project too. Participate in these projects and invite your friends and family to participate too. For more information please contact us via our email contact@muhammadi.me

To watch our short films you may visit our channel on youtube – www.youtube.com/muhammadidotme
May Allah send his blessings on Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his family and his companions.

Will any creator be happy if you belittle his greatest creation?

Posted on Jul 6, 2009 10:01:44 AM

Some time back I was trying to cast an actor for the role of an ashiq -e- Rasool in a naat video and had called some actors for an audition.

When I briefed one particular actor on the role that I was casting for, he refused to audition for that role. I was shocked to know the reason – that actor did not want to be seen as an adorer of the prophet (PBUH) !!!! That misled and misguided actor felt that naat or praising the Prophet (PBUH) was equivalent to shirk or polytheism!!! Hence this post.

Let us celebrate humanity and cherish the greatest creation of all – Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Posted on Jul 6, 2009 08:57:12 AM

Some time back I had posted a question to readers across the world as to what they think about Islam minus Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). I received many emails in response to this and a few comments too on the blog. Today I would like to discuss one very interesting comment in response to my post.

The reader VbPax commented as follows:

This version of ‘Islam’ (minus the Prophet PBUH) has also strategically removed all ‘human’ elements from the true religion of the Prophet (SAW) equating all human values with shirk and bidah. In their zeal to discredit and disrespect the Prophet (SAW) they have effectively created norms and ideologies that teach disrespect for everything human and that too in the name of Tauheed!!!! This is not the Tauheed taught by the Prophet (SAW)

The so called ‘Islam’ minus Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is inhuman and unfit for humans.

Islam minus Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is …. (Complete this sentence)

Posted on May 9, 2009 02:50:06 AM

This post is not mine – it is yours. In the comment section below the post, please complete the above sentence and let the world know what you think of such an Islam. Please be concise and brief in your comment (preferably within 70 words). Also no swearing and cursing – we are muslims – we are followers of the person who was never impatient. We are followers of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who even prayed for his tormentors. This is your chance – let the world know what you think. Below is a brief backgrounder for this issue.

Over the last few years there was a serious attempt to create an Islam minus the holy Prophet (PBUH). Books were published, speakers were hired, a TV channel was also started to trumpet this heinous version of this so called Islam. With billions of dollars behind the movement, it succeeded in recruiting some muslims.

The hallmarks of this movement were clear – Play down the importance of the Prophet (PBUH) using all means possible. Some of these means are given below:

Allah u Akbar – Allah is great. How great is great?

Posted on May 4, 2009 12:14:47 PM

Long ago when I heard the muezzin say Allah u Akbar in the call for prayer (adhaan) I wondered – how great is this great? I really didn’t know. I kept wondering. The answer evades me and I am going mad wondering. Every time I uttered ‘Allah u Akbar’ I wondered ‘How great is my Allah?’ Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t say thank you. It is shirk.

Photograph of Masjid e Nabawi - taken with my mobile phone
I am a film director/producer and whenever my production goes on air I spontaneously phone people who financed the production as well as the key people who helped me in the production to thank them. I also remember the day I completed my studies, I went to my parents and kissed their hands and wept in gratitude for having given me the opportunity to learn and do what I wanted to do. This is what I was taught by my great teacher Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). To be indebted and to thank people who have helped me in any way.

There is another great debt on me of the person who sacrificed all that he had so that I may be liberated and happy. He smiled and continued his mission while people stoned him and forced him out of his town. He taught me what I did not know and worked tirelessly to establish a system that my family runs on today. He taught me to respect my elders and treat others with kindness.

My parents, myself, my wife and child all felt greatly indebted to that great man and hence we all decided to travel to Medina to thank him. Read the rest of this entry »
