Morocco's Supreme Ulema Council Strongly Condemns Content Of Film 'The Lady Of Heaven'
Rabat, June 12 (TNA) The Supreme Council of Ulema has strongly condemned the content of the film 'The Lady of Heaven', expressing its categorical rejection of the blatant falsification of established facts in Islamic history.
"The Supreme Council of Ulema has taken cognizance of the overall content of the film recently produced under the title "The Lady of Heaven" and has noted that the person who wrote the film belongs to a Shiite current. He was stripped of his Kuwaiti nationality for his extremist ideas and that the film is a blatant falsification of the facts and contains a heinous act that cannot be accepted by Muslims, namely for the incarnation of the Prophet, peace be upon Him.
The film dared, it went on to say, with loathsome partiality, to use the person of Fatima Zahra, may Allah's blessings be upon Her, the daughter of the Prophet, peace be upon Him, for purposes that are contrary to the spirit of religion and the reality of history.
Those who are behind this film seek fame and sensationalism, promotion of their production, and the achievement of the largest number of viewers, by hurting the feelings of Muslims and stirring up religious sensitivities, the statement added.
For all these considerations, the Supreme Council of Ulemas, which was chaired by King Mohammed VI, strongly condemned the content of this film and expresses its categorical rejection of the blatant falsification of established facts of Islamic history. This falsification of facts, which is detrimental to Islam and Muslims, is rejected by all peoples, because it does not serve their higher interests among nations, especially in these times.
