    Wow it's shocking how much this trailer has been edited using Horror's most cliche filming techniques to purposely resemble some kind of slasher movie. As a movie fanatic it's embarrassing how blatantly this clip has been doctored to portray a warped vision of Islam and a desperate attempt to propel the creator's biased agenda onto its viewers. An absolute dishonest and unsettling piece of anti Islam propaganda. BTW: the self harming in this clip has NOTHING to do with Islam (or Hajj), it is a cultural ritual associated with the Shia minority.

    Curse the people who made this film.

    Lol, yup it's obv an easy task hunting down non flamboyant brown gay men during Hajj i mean there are only like 3 MILLION people there, And what's with the graphic self flagellation bits?? Thats an exclusive Shia practice that has nothing to do with Makkah, Hajj or even the majority of Muslims

    This is the biggest pile of rubbish ever, may Allah guide the people who made the film and acted as the portrayal they gave was just complete lies.

    I think people who think 'being gay is a sin' must have a mental disorder. A perfectly logical person would assume the following, I had no choice in who i am attracted to, therefore its possible a gay person also had no choice in the matter. It's not a fucking choice retards, I'm a straight man and I can't suddenly decided to gobble a cock one evening, it doesn't work that way. Humans create so many problems for themselves, problems which shouldn't exist, if you just live and let live providing no one is causing harm to anyone, we could all get along.

    Don't be fooled by this trailer, his mixing shia matam and the peaceful hajj, it is FORBIDDEN in Islam to harm oneself! Even smoking is haram, thus how about wounding oneself??? That's so illogical
  • Ahmed 2016-07-05 05:24:34
    He has no interest in documenting anything other than to create a sister cinematic portrayal that is deliberately skewed for dramatic purposes to monetize from. Absolute rubbish.

    I'm Saudi Arabian AND a muslim i've been to mecca like a hundred times and it is SO not like this especially in 1:40 WHAT IS THAT muslims don't even do that i suggest people read about islam before they watch stupid movies like this. I just really don't understand why people try to make islam look so bad and so violent when islam is all about peace. And by the way you can't film in hajj BECAUSE of the crowds, so there is a reason for that.
  • MiMi 2016-06-27 03:51:45
    This movie is a shit and a big lie . Like what the hick ?? Going to Makkah is the most peaceful place no hitting no blood . That people hit there self don't belong to Islam ! The real Islam I mean . This movie should not be available becuz it's a lie . Stop hate Islam and believe what media says .. We don't kill gay ppl but we see it a sin ! A lot of ppl agree but we don't punched them for being gay .
  • ND aj 2016-06-26 13:45:01
    This is film is full of lies ! Mecca is nothing like what this film shows ! Mecca is peaceful and Hajj have no blood in it ! this film shows lies and twisted facts !

    The trailer is constructed in a hugely despicable way. I was very intrigued to hear his tale, as i accept LGBT community as a Muslim myself. Just this trailer is really off putting.
  • Adinda Safira 2016-06-20 01:27:29
    in 1:41 ,that is not the real islam,harming yourself (like smoking, cutting skin) is a sin.These kind of "worshipping" is usually done by the shia muslims who believes that every drop blood that comes out of you represent your sins getting erased (if im not wrong) which is totally NOT TRUE and NOT DONE IN MECCA. your sins can easily be erassed by wudhu, prayers and even stepping on the land itself(mecca)....so please dont go around hating on religions when you dont know the full story.If he (the gay person) wants to go and do the hajj,do so.And no one is going to kill him or anything.At most people are gonna be shocked and they probably gonna lecture him a lil bit. Mecca is a very sacred place so when you are there, whatever you think will happen, will definitely happen.This reinforce the importance of not badmouthing.

    just another evil religion!
  • Ros Li 2016-06-14 17:00:24
    people waited long years just to go to hajj.... allah had called you to the two beutiful city, mecca and madina....and you do this kind of act.. WAKE UP

    People who believe homosexuality is a sin/disease/influence-from-west etc. should first meet homosexuals and find out themselves if anything is wrong or not in them before blindly believing the religious texts. In many countries, homosexuals are living a free and healthy lives...they are doctors,teachers,engineers,politicians,actors,etc. and living as an openly married couple. They are moving hand in hand with heterosexuals.Its time that we move on and become a more inclusive society rather than a oppressive one.
