Imam al Bukhari

is the ever-well-known Islamic scholar, traveller and Philomath whose collection of true ahadith ( words and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w, accepted as major source of religious law and moral guidance) called “Sahih ul-Bukhari” is the second important book for Muslims after Quran. Imam al-Bukhari collected more than 600 000 ahadith from thousands of Islamic scholars (Sheikhs) and selected only 7397 verified ahadith and put them together in one book, “Al-Jami as Sahih’. His biography includes an enormous amount of inspiring and touching facts and stories that would be a great basis for filmmaking.
The proposed film project will cover both history and contemporary life. The intriguing story of Hazrat Al Bukhari’s life, full of wisdom and unexpected moments could generate an amazing scenario for filming. Combination of historical episodes with shots of present day life through modern heroes and the situations they are facing, which could be juxtaposed with the life stories of Al-Bukhari and hadith he painstakingly gathered, will make the film attractive and relevant to a wider audience and not just the Islamic world
