WASHINGTON: An animated film on the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) will
be released across the United States and Canada on 14 November to coincide
with Eidul Fitr.
The 90-minute movie called ‘Muhammad: The Last Prophet’ has been produced
by the creators of such animated hits as ‘The King and I’ and ‘The Fox and
the Hound’ for Badr International. It will be shown in theaters in 37 US
and Canadian cities from 14 November. Because of Islamic tradition
prohibiting the visual representation of religious figures, no images of
the Holy Prophet will appear in the film. According to Nihad Awad,
executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, “This is
an exciting opportunity for parents and children of all faiths to learn
more about a historic figure like the Holy Prophet.
