I simply love this tagline...from the movie...
There is always a way to be good again.
Allah ( swt ) is most compassionate, most Merciful. Yes, Ive watched the movie. And truth be told, I am still affected by the gory and sadness. The book was sad enough, watching the scenes made it worse. I cried like 3/4 of the movie. I just love little Hassan angelic face. I dont want to talk about it really . Lost in a malancholic Lalang. But Im still choked with this feelings.
Hubby said "its only Wayang" although he admit, it was a good story.
"Nay hubby Jan, Its not only wayang " I muttered...
Its depicts reality.. miles and miles away from our safe and comfy homeland, there lies orphans taken away being made into sex slaves and boys getting sodomised by men claiming they follow shariah. Its makes me glad Im living in this country.
Read the book, then watch the movie. If you're strong enough. As for me, Im not at all strong, Although I believe that Allah (swt) knows best.
I am worried how the kafirins who watch the movie might think of Islam. On one hand, the men are stoning aduterers, on the othe hand, they make orphans their object of desires. Islam is never cruel to orphans. Never.
I am praying ever so hard these days and Im am making supplications for the children in Afganistan and other war torn countries.
May Allah (swt) protect them and make them ahli Jannah. Ameen.
