You’re just being silly now. No he was not. Anyways, on to more important matters…
If you are a child of the 1980’s like my good self, then the movie The Karate Kid will mean a lot to you…
Mr Miyagi. Daniel San. Cobra Kai. Wax on. Wax off. Focus. Sand-a floor.
Good times indeed!
A few years ago there was a remake with Jaden Smith, son of Will Smith. This remake, whilst different to the original, is just as good in its own modern way. I saw the remake at the cinema with the wife and kids, and I remember a scene that I thought was rather Islamic in nature. Here is the dialogue from that particular scene:
Mr. Han: Kung Fu lives in everything we do, Xiao Dre! It lives in how we put on the jacket, how we take off the jacket. It lives in how we treat people! Everything…is Kung Fu.
If you read the dialogue again and replace “Kung Fu” with “Islam” then it still makes perfect sense. This is because Islam is indeed in everything a Muslim does, Islam is a complete way of life. It even advises us on how to put on our shoes, all in the hope of becoming a better person, all in the hope of trying to get closer to Allah.
Anyway, here is that particular scene. Enjoy!
