Ketika Cinta Bertasbih

Apr 4th, 2008, in News, by

The film “Ketika Cinta Bertasbih” and not hurting the feelings of religious minorities.

In the wake of the success of the Islamic film Ayat Ayat Cinta SinemArt Pictures will shortly produce a screen version of another of Habiburrahman El-Shirazy’s novels, this time Ketika Cinta Bertasbih (When Love is Blessed by God).

The producers of the film are currently going about to important Muslim organisations like Muhammadiyah and others seeking advice on how to handle the Islamic aspects of the film.

On 1st April they met with Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) leader Umar Shihab, who advised producer Heru Hendriyanto and director Chaerul Umam to avoid SARA issues, things that might upset minorities in Indonesia or cause division.

Another MUI official present, Anwar Abbas, said the example of Ayat Ayat Cinta should be followed. When the character of Maria (Carissa Putri) converts from Christianity to Islam the saying by her of the Muslim profession of faith (syahadat) was not shown in the film – if it had been this would likely have hurt the feelings of Christian Indonesians, he said. antara

    I’m not sure what this one is all about… but if “Ayat Ayat Cinta” were about a Muslim converting to other religion, it would have been considered blasphemy.

  2. Jen says:

    I’m still waiting for a movie conveying universal values and acceptance of differences.

  3. Yugo says:

    From now on, we’ve to support any movies that promote sincere values to the society. The effect of movie as a powerful media as we knew has to be directed to the right way. πŸ™‚

  4. Mach Jabber says:

    At least they realize the sensitive issue. Thought they just passed on without even thinking about it.

    I still think that if there’s a movie about a muslim converting to Christianity (or whatever else) in theaters, we’d surely be seeing some white caped army in the streets hours afterwards.

    But anyway, good job on realizing it. Improvements!

  5. Oka says:

    I was very dissappointed with AAC movie because so many principles distortion from the novel. I hope this time the author won’t make the same mistake.

    Oka, I believe you’ll be a good film critic someday. I mean, just by looking at your range of film genre you watch all this time–from religious to porn–your knowledge about Indonesian film must be very rich.

    Care to elaborate more on the topic: Why religious film is better than porn film?

    I mean you didn’t say that porn film is bad, did you? Only that religious film is better.

  23. vanila says:

    okay i cant really comment on the values presented in the film KCB but if the soundtrack by melly goeslow (ketika cinta bertasbih) was adjusted to suit both the film and the audience who will be watching it, then i’d say whether you are a christian or a muslim (or from any other religion for that matter) you will hopefully enjoy the movie.

    and to the above.. does she really have to answer that question.. obviously Religious movies are better than porn..?! i dare say you learn alot more from religious movies rather than porn…

    one question. on the KCB site, they’ve said that they will launch the movie in australia as well. would anyone know if Perth is included? and also im interested in buying merchandise like their tshirts, but i live in australia, would i have to order?


  24. dhea says:

    sepertinya film ini bagus…
    walaupun saya belum liat, tapi meliat antusias masyarakat menanggapi novel dan filmnya sangat wahhhh

  25. Astrajingga says:

    and to the above.. does she really have to answer that question.. obviously Religious movies are better than porn..?!

    Yes, critically, not dogmatically.

    i dare say you learn alot more from religious movies rather than porn…

    Learn a lot from which relgious movies rather than which porn movies? There’re bad religious movie, and there’re good porn.

  26. Kodew says:

    I dont get too supprised reading most of comments saying this movie is great, best etc because some of my friends are ridiculuosly think that because the casts dressing up like arabs, the movie is totally a guidance to have a Islamic ‘pacaran’…lol….if we choose to follow the path that Islam forbidden ‘pacaran’ then there is no such thing is Islamic ‘pacaran’ πŸ˜‰
    In my view the movie is like many other love stories but since the setting and casts are ‘arabish’, then people overjudge it to be ‘religious’ or best movie ever.

    And onething is why by the occurence of this movie some people trying to uplift the status of this movie by comparing it to porn and horror? How about comparing it with other love story movies?? or other inspiring social movies which I believe have alot more inspiring quality than this movie?

    Maturnuwun πŸ™‚

  27. eta says:


    Excellent novelist, combination of special ingredients make it so in touch with our heart..
    Do wish to see this movie, sooner the better πŸ™‚


  28. Zakwan Zukri says:

    After ‘Ayat-ayat Cinta’,’Ketika Cinta Bertasbih’ is one of the Islamic movies that should be watched by all people,especially the Muslims.I think both movies are the best Islamic movies that I’ve ever watched in my life.
