Brother of Osama Bin Laden to Produce $1 Billion Movie on Prophet Mohammed

by THE GLOBAL MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD DAILY REPORT December 21, 2012

Gulf media are reporting that a Doha-based company owned by a brother of Osama Bin Laden is producing a $1 billion dollar movie on the life and teachings of the Prophet Mohammad. According to the Gulf News report, Global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi is serving as an advisor to the film: 

December 19, 2012  A $1 billion epic movie on the life and teachings of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is set to be produced by Doha-based Al Noor Holding. The media company said that the movie endorsed by Islamic scholars, including Yusuf Al Qaradawi, the Chairman of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, would be in seven parts and would be produced according to the highest international standards using the most sophisticated technical and audio-visual systems. The company on Monday said that the team of experts has finished writing the scenario after overcoming a series of artistic and dramatic challenges. The approval of leading Muslim scholars was necessary for the company to move ahead with the movie production. ‘We are aware of the fact that this (film) is a difficult and a challenging task,' Al Noor Holding said in September. ‘This is why we have consulted many famous Islamic scholars, among them Dr Al Qaradawi, who will guide us on the Sharia aspect of the film.' Under strict Islamic laws, prophets cannot be depicted on screen or in print and the movie will be no exception. However, his companions will appear in the movie screen, in a decision that breaks with long-held views that their status among Muslims does not allow their depiction or embodiment on screen either. At the media opportunity in Doha on Monday, Al Qaradawi said that he conducted his own research and that he consulted with 30 senior scholars on showing the Prophet's companions in a movie. ‘Following the studies and the consultations, I have come to the conclusion that there was nothing wrong with showing the companions in dramatic work,' he said. ‘I used to oppose the idea as we have formed our own cognitive image and characterization of the prophets and companions and that we should not distort them with human images. However, following long researches and studies, I realised that we have been excessive in our approach and that there is no text or reference in the Quran or in the Prophet's Tradition and Sayings that does not allow it,' he said in remarks published by Qatari daily Al Sharq on Tuesday.

According to a profile on the Al Noor Holding website:

Established in 2007 in Dubai, Al Noor Holding Investment LLC is a United Arab Emirates-based development entity. The company is majority-owned by its Chairman, Sheikh Tarek M. Binladen. The Name "Al Noor" is Arabic and means "light". Hence the term Al Noor City can be translated as "City of Light".

According to a wide variety of sources, Tarek M. Bin Laden is a brother of Osama Bin Laden who is related by their common father.

Qaradawi, a virulent anti-Semite is often referred to here as the most important leader of the global Muslim Brotherhood, an acknowledgement of his role as the de facto spiritual leader of the movement. In 2004, Qaradawi turned down the offer to lead the Egyptian Brotherhood after the death of the Supreme Guide. Based in Qatar, Sheikh Qaradawi has reportedly amassed substantial wealth through his role as Shari'ah adviser to many important Islamic banks and funds. He is also considered to be the "spiritual guide" for Hamas and his fatwas in support of suicide bombings against Israeli citizens were instrumental in the development of the phenomenon. A recent post has discussed a video compilation of Qaradawi's extremist statements. A post from August reported that  Qaradawi had been included as part of a list of Islamic scholars to be appointed to an Egyptian national board of senior Islamic scholars (Ulema). Al-Azhar is considered to be the main center of Islamic and Arabic learning in the world.

The Gulf News article further cites Nihad Awad, the leader of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), who claims that "round 750 movies with negative messages about Islam or Prophet Mohammad were produced by Hollywood in the last decade.
