Hollywood has released a movie called Noah, supposedly depicting Prophet Nuh (Noah) alaihis salaam. There are several reasons why Muslims have a problem with such a film:
1. Portrayal of a Prophet
1.1. This is not allowed as it detracts from the respect for the Prophet.
1.2 The actors are not in the position to portray such great personalities.
1.3 Viewers start to intertwine the character played by actors, looks included, into their imagination of the Prophets. When reading about the Flood of Nuh alaihis salaam, viewers will imagine scenes from the movie.
2. False Information
2.1 By and large Hollywood movies never stick to the truth. In fact the producer of the movie Noah, a self-professed atheist, says he is proud of the fact that he’s taken a story inspired by God’s word and turned it into something so secular.
2.2 The Bible stories of the Prophets that form the basis of the movies, are riddled with lies and depict the Prophets in an unsavory light. An example is Genesis 19:30-36 which twists the story of Prophet Loot alaihis salaam.
3. Sex and Nudity
3.1 No story, not even that of the Prophets, escapes the Hollywood addition of immoral scenes. IMDB’s parental guidance on the film Noah notes scenes where Prophets are depicted in immodest scenes.
Rather read the story of Prophet Nuh alaihis salaam in authentic books and the Quran.
