This prompted Al-Nabawi to send a message to his fans on his Facebook page, in response to what he described as a “smear campaign.”
The following is the text of the message:
In the name of of Allah the Merciful..
(I am not used to talking about something about the scenes of my profession during implementation in order to work mainly, because I know that people are busy with what is most important.
I apologize this time and it will be the last because I owe it to the public and my family, and to this great profession, and because I am subjected to a deliberate smear campaign that has no basis for what you claim in every letter on social media and through some technical magazines and some websites that publish news about me, and these news are all completely bare of health. . I make it clear that I did not and do not agree with the methods of advertising on the streets, on social media, and any media that is read, audio or written.
I informed Mr. Al-Producer of my disapproval, who in turn informed me that this propaganda was not carried out by his company and that he knew nothing about it and that it would be corrected immediately and unfortunately it has not happened yet.
I have spoken a lot with Mr. Captain, the cast, about my severe misrepresentation, and that I do not agree to any propaganda that was published permanently, and that my contract does not provide for this, but quite the opposite.
My contract contains full respect for the one who is greater than me, art and age … and has full respect for my art and my name .. as well as the principles and customs that do not agree to that as well ..
The respected producer promised me to implement the advertising materials for his company to correct the image and all the errors that occurred .. I hope, God willing, that will happen soon. Just as the Honorable Mr., the Captain of the Actors also promised me.
In the end, I say to those who blame me for love, or those who have longed for hatred, good or bad, there are certainly greater officials than me for correcting the inverted pyramid, because no one can alone. And since no one is responsible alone, it seems to me at the moment that it is clear that retirement is the solution.
So as not to leave room for gossip .. There are no personal differences between me and all my colleagues.
I hope everyone will be careful before he makes any word without verifying its authenticity so as not to harm people wrong.
The word is a trust that God will hold us accountable for .. And so as not to leave room for gossip, the facts will be published successively .. and everything will be announced to the public at the time ..
Peace and love for everyone and every year and everyone is fine ..
