Hey Brainy...nice to see you on this forum...
I get what you are saying...about the lack of ayats hanging around the house and the prayers and religious stuff...And yes I agree the other dramas with families from other religious backgrounds do show them worshipping more...but I don't think we are missing out too much in QH.
If you think about it...Islam is more private and one on one between worshipper and God...Our prayers unless the men go to the mosque...are performed individually and we only have 2 festivals in the year...Eid-ul-fitr and Eid-ul-Adha. It'll be nice to see these celebrated on the screen when the occassion arises.
The drama on the whole though does depict an average muslim familiy's life and values quite well. I mean you do see Zoya praying to Allah for guidance before her Nikkah. And you do see Asad meeting up with Ayaan at a mizaar for solace. I'm sure other religious obsevances will be shown as needed...but perhaps the CVs don't want to make religion the primary focus.
I haven't seen more than an episode or 2 of Pakistani dramas...but from what I've seen...you don't see the characters offering their 5 daily prayers...but you assume that they do...because that's not what the drama is about...Am I making any sense?
heyy right back at ya. i guess it is more private but still.. everyone has their own opinion and this is mine. trust me, i don't want CVs to focus on religion, that will just tick me off; i just wanted some symbolism and ya, pakistani drama's aren't too hot in portraying islam either but they do have symbolism like prayers hanging in the house or the azaan will go off in some episodes. i'm not comparing pakistani/indian episodes. i was just saying i've seen the theme of halala in pakistani shows.
anyways it was just me venting and im over it. my opinion is still the same and doubt its gonna change but i'm over it. lol
