Question 43:Question Concerning Showing Hazrat Abulfazl’s Face in a TV SerialAccording to received information, Hazrat Abulfazl’s face is supposed to be portrayed in a TV serial. Is there is any juristic problem in showing his face on screen? Is it not opposed to his dignity and wouldn’t it lower his spiritual character in public mind? That is because people have a heavenly and splendid image of him in their minds and showing his face on screen may degrade him from heaven to earth?
Answer 43: Salamun alaykum There is no doubt that such an action would lower his ranks, especially when it is likely that these actors may have previously played roles in other movies that are completely against it, and this would result in degradation of such noble personalities. So it is necessary to avoid showing his holy face vividly on screen.
