An Islamic Perspective
8 April 2014 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

The Jinn concept is a little misconstrued in this movie, leaving the Muslim audience a little confused about what we know about their exhistance. The film does offer good, wholesome entertainment, without having to use profanity, nudity , and the selling of sex. After watching the premiere on Youtube, I have had a change of heart as to my original feelings about this movie. I really liked what the director had to say about the making of this film. It seems he worked really hard and deserves a lot of credit. Muslims should support the work of other Muslims and we should encourage our children to be more creative and do what it is they love to do.
