One of Indonesia’s most phenomenal films, Ayat Ayat Cinta is a religious love story based on a best-selling novel of the same title by renowned author Habiburrahman El Shirazy. Beautifully showcasing a very positive viewpoint of Islam, the film has been received with thundering applause, countless tears and standing ovations nationwide, promising to be the most talked about film in the history of the Indonesian motion picture industry.
This tale centres on Fahri, an intelligent Indonesian who earns a scholarship to complete his graduate degree at the esteemed Al Azhar university in Cario. Innocent, pure and brave, the usually shy Fahri finds himself surrounded by four beautiful, distinctly different women who develop feelings for him. Fahri considers Maria, a shy Coptic-Christian neighbour, as one of best friends but he devotes his love only to Aisha, a German Turkish student in Cairo who haunts Fahri with her beautiful eyes. After a brief courtship, the two are married, resulting in three broken hearts. Nurul, a daughter of a cleric, accepts her fate. Noura, an abused Egyptian neighbour turns against Fahri and accuses him of rape while Maria sinks into depression and illness. As Fahri faces daunting decisions, the controversial topic of polygamy is explored but all the while, the audience is compelled to marvel at his undying loyalty to the true ideas of Islam as he ultimately makes the choice of a lifetime.
