Is the movie dune based on islam

Boqorada

I Was Cheating In Prison..I Was Cheating ...
Watching the trailer I could see why you would say that, it did kind of have similarities to the cartoon the last prophet.

I want to see it just for Jason Mamoa.:stressed:

Apparently the book the movie is based on is heavily influenced by Middle Eastern cultures

It's a great film, I enjoyed it. Preferred it to the new 007 film that came out

Great movie and it has Middle Eastern/Islamic influence. Even using words like mahdi, jihad etc. But it’s not based on Islam.

Yeah but calling the guy Lihsan Al Ghaib (Voice of the Unseen) but in the movie they translated it as Voice from Other World

Felt iffy to me

Pretty much. Even the Emperor of the Imperium is called the Padishah Emperor. It's heavily influenced by Middle Eastern cultures. They even call the messiah figure that the main character is supposed to be the "Mahdi" at one point. But there are other elements in there too. The main character's family are basically Greek and supposedly descended from the ancient house of Atreus and are supposed descendants of King Agamemnon of the Mycenaean era. Just a lot of Mediterranean-MENA stuff jumbled up but I wouldn't say there is at all an actual Islam equivalent in the story, @Never Broke Again.

Read the books when I was a kid. The story is set around 30k years in the future, with mankind spread around the universe.

The Fremen, the people of the desert planet of Arrakis, originated from Egypt, and have a mixed belief system of Islam and Buddhism, and were called the Zensunni.

Frank Herbert, the author of the Dune books, must've been on some quality gear, to have thought that Islam and Buddhism are compatible enough for people to mix the two together.

They trashed it bad though, calling that scrawny cadaan kid the Mahdi, the whole spitting on the floor as a form of greeting, the whole thing was embarrassing :mjkkk:
