Pakistani drama Khuda Aur Muhabbat, starring Imran Abbas and Sadia Khan, was a massive hit. Now cashing on the success of the first season, the team has finally aired long-awaited season 2. But this time, the drama takes a step further from justifying ‘love’ under Islam to marrying jews.
Story of Drama Khuda Aur Muhabbat
Khuda Aur Muhabbat Season 2 starts where season 1 left us. Hammad (Imran Abbas) is heartbroken at the death of Iman and leaves the country to help himself recover. There, he studies economics and becomes busy in his academics. However, as the audiences could possibly anticipate, he falls in love with a Jewish girl at the university.
So this time, it’s not about falling in love with the daughter of an imam but it’s about what could possibly happen when your heart starts beating for a jew.
The solution that the drama will ultimately present is to convert the Jew girl to Islam and then marry her. That’s what Hammad is going to do this time. So be prepared for some controversies over this plot as Pakistani audiences have a lot of prejudice against Jews.
Controversy in Khuda Aur Muhabbat – Marrying a Jew girl
The story of converting a Jew to Islam to marry her is easily relatable to our society. The famous politician Imran Khan also married a Jew girl named Jamima Khan (after converting her to Islam). That’s the reason I’m predicting that this GEO TV drama is going to be a massive hit.
Talking about season 2, Imran Abbas told the press that the drama will begin with the same story, as seen in season 1 but as the story progresses, things are going to change amid new circumstances. Imran told the media that they shot the same episodes as in last season
“Khuda Aur Muhabbat Season 2 is a sequel as well as a prequel” Imran Abbas
Despite the similarities, season 2 will introduce new locations and entirely different cast, excluding the lead played by Imran and Sadia. This time, the drama has a technically improved production so the audiences will be treated to better cinematography, dialogues, and other aspects of drama production.
What Quran says about marrying Jews
Before this controversy moves to the headlines, let’s see what Quran says about intermarriage in Islam.
“Do not marry idolatresses (al mushrikāt) till they believe; and certainly a believing maid is better than an idolatress even though she would please you; and do not marry idolaters (al Mushrikīn) till they believe (hata yūminū), and certainly a believing slave is better than an idolater, even though he would please you. These invite to the Fire, and Allah invites to the Garden and to forgiveness by His grace, and makes clear His revelations to mankind so that they may remember.”Qur’an 2:221.
