Give children back their mothers

Posted on Sep 2, 2011 11:37:48 PM

This was the goal of Al-Haadi Musalla of Toronto – the sponsors of my last short film ‘Rishta’ (The Bond). The theme of the film is the important debate on working women and the story/script was provided by the sponsors.

The idea was not to prevent all women from working but rather the film looks at the ‘collateral damage’ resulting from the thoughtless pursuit of the ‘perceived satisfaction’ of being a working woman.

Some women do need to work for economic reasons but that is not the case with all working women.

There is a perceived emotional satisfaction of being a career woman but that needs to be weighed against the losses that occur in the family life. We need to fix up our priorities.

Many children have lost their mothers and their family lives because both parents are focused on their work and careers. We need to think whether this great loss is worth the emotional satisfaction of a career.

Can this satisfaction be achieved by women by being more socially active instead of taking up a career? Can a man leave his job instead and focus on his children? Will a father sitting at home for the children be able to substitute the loss of a mother for the children? This film raises these questions that we all need to sit and answer – for the sake of our children…

This film was sponsored for the isaale thawaab of the Marhoomeen mentioned at the end of the film. Please pray for them and for all those who participated in the making of this film.

Chaining an elephant. Watch this new film and pray for the sponsors.

Posted on May 18, 2011 11:38:03 PM

Baby elephants are chained with a purpose that will be clear in a moment. As babies, they are unable to break these iron chains. These baby elephants try and try to break free from these chains but ultimately leave hope after continuous failure.

When these babies turn into full grown Elephants they are so powerful that they can break these chains with the slightest effort. But they don’t!!! The Elephants think that the chains cannot be broken! They have been trained to think that way from childhood. It is their thought that has made them slaves forever.

If Yazeed had his way, we too would be slaves forever. But Maula Hussain Alayhis Salam intervened. Maula Hussain broke all our mental shackles that enslaved us. Fear and hopelessness are the weapons of tyrants but Imam Hussain Alayhis Salam gave us hope and showed us what fearlessness really meant.

He sacrificed so much. He and others from the family of the Holy Prophet Sallallaho Alayhe Wa Aalehi Wa Sallam were kept thirsty for days and were slaughtered by the butchers of Yazeed. But Aqa Hussain was the grandson of the noble Prophet and his father was Ali. He practically demonstrated what the Prophet and his family stood for.

He showed us the way in a manner that we can never forget. He is a shining example for us so that we may never think that we cannot escape slavery – so that we may never be like those mighty but uninspired Elephants who have been trained to surrender their freedom.

We recently did a short film on this issue for Al-Haadi Musalla of Toronto. This beautiful concept and story was written by brother Siraj Ali of Al-Haadi Musalla and we did our best to put this on screen as effectively as possible.

The film was sponsored for Eesaal e Thawab of Marhum Yakubali Sabowala, Haiderali Virani and Salim Virani.

I request all viewers to recite Surah Fatiha for them and pray for them and the sponsors. The sponsors have spent in the way of Allah so that the message of the Prophet and his AhleBayt AlayhimusSalam reaches world audiences through the powerful audiovisual media. May Allah bless them for this. Ameen.

Watch ‘Such TV’ Channel IDs – Designed and executed by

Posted on Apr 27, 2011 10:15:57 AM

These channel ids are a part of a channel id campaign that we designed and executed for our client M/s Such TV – a new channel that was to be launched shortly.

The campaign was designed based on the brief given to us by the client and what we understood to be the vision of the client about where they wanted to place their channel in the minds of people. The channel was to be promoted as a young and fresh channel that is unique in its approach and programming.

Their approach to programming was to be ‘values based’ something that was missing in the existing TV channels on the block. There were some key unique propositions that the channel was focusing on, and our campaign was designed around these unique focus points.

Below are the 5 channel ids:

I will not sleep with my boy friends…

Posted on Feb 10, 2010 05:39:39 AM

“I will not sleep with my boy friends any more. I did not know what I was doing.”

This is what a sister from the US had to say after watching my latest film on adultery. The film was well received by world audiences and I have been receiving dozens of emails since the release. Most of them were full of appreciation and thanks and some of them were explicit in saying what effect the film had on them. I am putting down some of the response below.

One email from a brother says:

Brother IBRAHEEM, I hope that you are happy, healthy and everything is fine. So, today’s morning I visit my favorite website ( to see any updated video. So, when the website is open I found a new post named  New film on adultery released! Watch it online. So, I start viewing the video of on above mentioned. When I complete see the two parts of this amazing short-film. I think I have a chance, so that I am cancelling to meet my girl-friend.  Please keep me in your prayers. And ALLAH (SUBHAN WATALAH) may bless you to keep continue your prestigious work.

Yet another one said:

Thank you for the film. It opened my eyes. I will definitely be more careful now onwards…

One brother from UK said:

Amazing film… a very tough topic/issue to tackle. These kind of issues are pretty common in the UK, and we need to push this film to all those people and get the message across.

Well done brother Ibrahim, you have once again donea good job. Thanks brother Zamir at Noore Islam, it really was a brave attempt.

There were many more emails and some comments too. The credit of course goes to brother Zamir Afzal who gave us such a theme to work on and financed the project. His support and ideas were invaluable to us in the production of this film. I hope to do more work with the co-operation of brothers and sisters in future.

Thank you all for the tremendous response. Keep writing to us. You can email me on or you can add comment on my posts.
