Egyptian activists interacted via Facebook with a video that included a religious error in the events of the movie “Banat Al-Layl”, which was shown for the first time in 1955.
The late artist Hussein Riad appeared in the film, speaking to the artist Madiha Yousry: “God Almighty said in his dear book, Heaven is under the feet of mothers, and this in itself is the greatest honor for the mother,” which sparked widespread controversy, as this sentence has nothing to do with the Qur’an.
Dr. Magdy Ashour, advisor to the Mufti of Egypt, explained that “Paradise is under the feet of mothers,” a saying that falls under what is known as “the impact,” noting that there are some hadiths that carry this meaning.
The scene aroused the indignation of the followers, as some of them see that this is a “distortion of the Holy Qur’an.”
Some activists also expressed their sadness about this scene, given the “lack of religious culture, and the dissemination of false information that many people can believe, given the spread of art and the strength of its influence, and that the people were drawing their culture from it at that time.”
The movie “Girls of the Night” tells the story of a poor girl who is forced by difficult life circumstances to work as a dancer. One night, a sailor takes her to his house and then assaults her before he disappears from her life.
After a while, she discovers that she is pregnant, and then she meets the simple worker Hussein, who falls in love with her and decides to help her get rid of her bad past and marry her, but Hussein’s family refused to marry their son because of the bad reputation of the bride.
The film stars Madiha Yousry, Kamal Al-Shennawi, Hend Rostom, Hussein Riad, Thoraya Hassan, Hamdi Ghaith, Salha Qassin, and Thoraya Helmy, and is directed and written by Hassan Al-Imam.
