Ek Tamanna La Hasil Si Episode 12 – Interesting except some details.

Ohkay well the serial is getting somewhat interesting. I actually find myself liking it & don’t find it hard to watch at least once. The story is taking its twists & turns but I guess some of the content shown in the drama could’ve been sugar-coated or presented in a less dramatic manner.

Nadia & Mohsin got the time for themselves & got to confess their feelings. Nadia has taken a few steps to encourage Mohsin towards her & I guess it is a duty of every wife to do that. Mohsin seems to have rekindled the feelings he had for Nadia but oppressed them because of his mother.Β Khala’s help to Nadia took a toll on her & she had to pay the price but I must say the way Ramla & Ahsan tackled the situation was brilliant. I liked the scene where Ramla & Ahsan clearly mentioned in front of Mohsin that the way Nadia is being mistreated is intolerable & Ruqaiyya should stop.

Ruqaiyya has clearly told her neighbour that she is now willing to get Mohsin married again because Nadia couldn’t give her a grandchild till now. I feel some of the details in this drama are gruesome & could’ve been handled in a proper way with some lesser details because the way they clearly talk about Nadia & Mohsin’s relation is a bit awkward. Everyone knows what they are referring to so they can cut the part where they have to explain every time that what Nadia goes through & how a distance is maintained between the couple because of the Mother in law.

I really couldn’t believe when I saw the promotion of amulets (taveez). I really couldn’t stop wondering about the Hadith where it is clearly mentioned that the Women would be the dwellers of Hell in a greater number as compared to men & this is going to be the main reason because they would involve themselves in Shirk. I know many would not agree but I fail to understand that how can a man-written piece of paper improve someone’s condition or relation? Nadia took the paper & dipped it in the food so that her in laws would start loving her? This is totally beyond the concept of Quran Majeed & Sunnah, so why can’t the writers or the whole team involved in the making can point out about it & cut this promotion of Shirk out of their dramas. No doubt there’s a trend of literally buying the amulets these days in Pakistan but showing it on TV might encourage the people who already have a feeble iman on Allah. They on their own are showing the reality but to show it in a positive light that the in laws actually started loving Nadia because of the amulet is despicable. No no man can improve the condition of other fellow being let alone make others love him/her. I condemn & I hope that the drama makers stop showing such immorality in our dramas & I pray for those who seek help from others except Allah.

The preview of the next episode was interesting too & we saw Ali making some plans with his girlfriend so that Hira can take divorce from him & once again Nadia is going to be the target. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

    Zahra !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Salaam. Go girl. It's great to see you and I'm following you and your reviews diligently πŸ™‚

    I would just like to raise a point of interest here, please allow me. I don't think the directors are in any way promoting the use of amulets, talismans, taviz but rather, they are trying to portray the desperation of poor Nadia who will try anything to make Mohsin pay attention to her so that she can make her marriage work. They are trying to show the lengths people can go to.

    When people lack imaan in their Creator, they ultimately take to short cuts such as charms, taviz's and Pirs – which might work, but only in the short term as 'quick fixes' are always temporary and transitory.

    The drama is superb I think, albeit rather crude at times. The content is strong too sometimes but I think it is a very realistic description of the abuse taking place in our homes and society – We, the audience have to adjust, accept and learn from it. Poor Nadia.

    Wishing you and your nearest and dearest well, Zahra. Take great care. Lovin' your reviews πŸ™‚ Fi Aman Illah.

    Walaikum Asalam Brother.

    So good to see your comment that too a detailed one. πŸ™‚ Yeah, I agree to your perspective of the situation & I guess I mentioned it in my review too that they are showing the use of amulets in a positive way & no doubt she would do anything to make her marriage work but then doesn't it give the wrong idea about Islam to others in a sense that Muslims believe more on amulets than their Allah? I know there are a lot of people who actually believe in taveezaat & stuff like that but with due respect I'd say that I have never heard of any of such thing in our Hadith?

    I agree when you say that they're trying to show how desperate one can get but to make it more realistic they could've shown Nadia offering Namaz or reciting some Surahs or Ayats from Holy Quran because trust me that does work like a charm because in that case we're depending on Allah's words not a man-made amulet which consists of numbers written in rows & columns, how can numerology turn the fate of any soul?

    But apart from few points I actually like this drama a lot & enjoy watching it because no doubt it's something which we have seen before but the lesson it contains can be revised again & again. πŸ™‚ All the best wishes to you too. Keep commenting because I enjoy it. πŸ™‚

    I started following this drama really late but now I thoroughly enjoy watching it!
    Zahra, indeed you have raised an important point and while watching the drama I also immediately thought "what are these directors trying to portray about Islam?"

    Not many people understand the complexities of showing these kinds of acts, and these do lead to deviating some from religion especially who do not have much command of Islam.

    It was extremely thoughtful of you to write about his and may Allah (SWT) give us guidance and keep us away from such sinful acts.

    Being a muslim I totally condemn such idiotic acts being shown on TV, be it in desperation, fear, anxiety or harassment.

    Keep writing good stuff!

      Thank you so much Abeer for appreciating & understanding what exactly I was referring to. I feel it would've been a treat to see her offering prayers or praying directly to Allah about her situation but to stoop to such non-Islamic level & to show that amulets can actually bring luck to us is deceiving & could deviate people along with presenting a wrong picture about our religion Islam. Thank you once again Abeer, keep supporting. πŸ™‚
