      haha cheeky !!!
      Umm .. I think its alright as long as it doesnt go over the limits .. Pornography ... Quran doest say anything about it ... Romans used to have theatres in those times .. so if Allah had to say smth about it he would have ... Acting is quite an old tradition .. !
      Sorry if i m souding stupid

                Light entertainment is allowed, whereas there are reserved views about love stories.

                    Sheikhpur (Shakespeare) bhai puts it very eloquently as follows:

                    "All the world's a stage,
                    And all the men and women merely players;
                    They have their exits and their entrances,
                    And one man in his time plays many parts,"

                    Play: "As you like it"

                      Based on the criteria set by Code-Red, I would say that there is nothing in Islam as per laws that would prohibit any one from acting. I will just give one example and I am sure that it will help.

                      If you look at the society in Madinah at the time of the Prophet (pbuh) one of the biggest social activity was reading poetry. Arabs were very proud of their language and always experimented with it and one of the ways they did that was through Poetry. Pre Islamic poetry traditions like the Muallaqat is an excellent example of the peak of Arabic poetry.

                      In Quran, itís a general perception that poetry is looked down upon, but not declared haram or anything near to that. But there are several Ahadith which are related to poetry, and there are several in which the holy prophet (pbuh) is even involved in these social activities where poetry was recited. Now the ahadith are pretty explicit about good and bad poetry and poetry which praises or lead to shirk or praising gods other than Allah.

                      Now this being said, Itís a historic fact recorded by many literature historians that one of the ways the Qasidah was read, was through two performers reading different parts of the Qasidah at one time. Keeping in mind the oral tradition of Arabic poetry, they use to recite the poetry as if they were not reciting but enacting the event it self. People still read parts of famous poetry in social gatherings in the same way even today.

                      So, In my limited, knowledge, based on the reading of Qasidah, I would say that acting is totally allowed as long as we know that in the process of acting we do not cross the limits set by Quran and sunnah. It means like you may not kiss a namehrum or so and so. But the bottom line is as long as this acting is going to help Islam, enhance our knowledge and especially if it will not disturb the moral fabric of our society then i think even the JI people will not object on it.

                      I assume we are all allowed to have our opinions.
                      Wa Allah u Aalum.

                      On a side note, we should be very careful in using the word Haram, since its only Allah who can declare anything Haram.
                      بِن دانا پانی میں جی لواں
                      بِن انَک میں جی نہ سکاں

                        Minime Bhaijan, is there a database that lists Haram Halal things? Is #2 pencil with eraser halal?

                        What exactly is the relevance of what went on in 7th century Arabia to what happens today?

                              I don't think acting itself is mentioned but things it involves such as mixing of non-related men & women, guys looking at unrelated women & girls looking at unrelated men and music are things which are obviously forbidden in traditional orthodox Islam, some even go further and are sensual or sexualy explicit.

                              I'm not saying I do or I don't watch films, I'm just presenting the traditional Islamic perspective.
