An old friend has successfully completed a short film called "The Road." It is wonderfully funny and entertaining. I've attached a link to the website where it can be viewed.

I don't want to give away the content of the film, but I do want to take this opportunity to mention a couple Ahadith (reports of sayings or actions) of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). This came to mind while I was watching Owen's film:

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: The Great and the Glorious Lord said (to angels): Whenever My bondsman intends to corn it an evil, do not record it against him, but if he actually commits it, then write it as one evil. And when he intends to do good but does not do it, then take it down is one act of goodness, but if he does it, then write down ten good deeds (in his record). (Book #001, Hadith #0233) (Sahih Muslim)

Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab: I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for." (Book #1, Hadith #1) (Sahih Bukhari)
