Gotham Casts Game of Thrones Alum Alexander Siddig as Ra's al Ghul

Gotham appeared to lose its biggest villain in the winter finale, when the Riddler vs Penguin battle came to a dramatic close. But a villain of epic proportions is coming to town, as one of Batman’s most cunning foes, Ra’s al Ghul, joins the cast in the final eight episode run of the season that airs this spring. Alexander Siddig, a well-liked TV actor from Game of Thrones, Da Vinci’s Demons, Atlantis, 24, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and more will step into the role of the nigh-immortal villain who in the comics seeks to make Bruce Wayne his heir as he controls the world from the shadows.

The role is a recurring one that will start later this season, and Ra’s will be seen as “pulling the strings” of everything going on in Gotham City, including the actions of the Court of Owls and other villains. To say it’s a big undertaking is an understatement. Interestingly, Siddig will be the first man of Arabian origins to play this Arabian character.

Typically in the comics, Ra’s al Ghul comes into Bruce Wayne’s life after he’s become Batman, but that was changed in Batman Begins when he became one of Bruce’s primary instructors, helping him to become the vigilante. We may see even more of a mentorship role between Ra’s and the young Bruce Wayne on Gotham played by David Mazouz. Gotham is using the “League of Shadows” instead of “League of Assassins” in the series - the former has been used exclusively in the big screen “Dark Knight Trilogy,” while the latter was the comic book original name of his organization, and was brought to live action on the CW.

The character has appeared in several media besides comics, most recently as a character on Arrow.

The official character description from Gotham’s producers follows:


As Bruce (David Mazouz) pulls the veil off the COURT OF OWLS, he finds the man pulling the strings is the enigmatic and powerful RA’S AL GHUL. With his past shrouded in mystery, Ra’s Al Ghul uses cunning and deception to lay waste to his foes. As the leader of an international criminal organization known as the LEAGUE OF SHADOWS, Ra’s Al Ghul will prove himself to be Bruce’s most dangerous adversary yet.

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ عَنْ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ :
( مَنْ صَامَ رَمَضَانَ إِيمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ ،
وَمَنْ قَامَ لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ إِيمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ ‏)

Narrated Abu Hurairah :
The Prophet of Allah (Allah blessings and peace be upon him) :
( If anyone fasts during Ramadan because of faith and in order to seek his reward from Allah, his previous sins will be forgiven to him.
If anyone prays in the night of the power (lailat al-qadr) because of faith and in order to seek his reward from Allah his previous sins will be forgiven for him.)

“I have boundaries, until I know I can trust someone”

“We can feel the vibration that comes from the candle flame, burning it way into our innermind, no blurry images, clear as crystal, we enter into the highest consciousness, on our journey back home, we possess the eagle’s eye, the eye that can see the invisible.” 

لَيْسَ مِنَّا مَنْ لَمْ يُحَاسِبْ نَفْسَهُ فِي كُلِّ يَوْمٍ

The one who does not take account of himself every single day is not one of us

—  Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (as) [Bihar Al-Anwar, vol 67, p 72]

Geomantic Tablet

Numerous divinatory arts have been practiced by Muslim societies across the centuries. Since God has absolute control of the universe and of all that we see and understand, omens such as dreams could be recognized as God-given signs.

The ‘Science of the Sand’ (ilm al-raml) is a divinatory technique that interprets a series of figures made of clusters of dots or lines. It can be used to answer all manner of questions from the fidelity of a spouse to the gender of an unborn child. This extraordinary and unique Geomantic Tablet made in Syria (639 AH / 1241–2), made of brass, silver and gold, offered an alternative way to produce geomantic figures normally traced manually in the sand.

You can see it on display, until next weekend, in our Power and Protection exhibition which explores Islamic art and the supernatural.

“Together we are learning to move from raw emotion and frozen muscles into a flow which emerges deep from within. We are learning to dance our prayers, bleed our words onto the page, laugh our images onto canvas, build our dreams in the world – to transmute and transmit the energy of the Feminine through our bodies and out into the world.”

Good men/women don't exist anymore?

Don’t worry about whether you will ever find someone good… Because you are not the one who will find them. He is. And everything in the world belongs to Him, everything is created by Him, everything is decreed by Him. He is Al-Qawee - the most powerful and He is Al-Kareem - the most generous. Don’t disrespect Allaah subhaanahu wa ta'aala by underestimating His power… His plan for you and doubting that He has prepared good.

Work on yourself and be the person that you want to meet - in every way.
You want your spouse to be consistent and attached to their prayers?
Work on that in yourself!
You want your spouse to be in control of their anger and be tolerant towards others and speak in a gentle manner?
Work on that in yourself!
You want your spouse to refrain from talking to any member of the opposite gender apart from you and the permissible ties?
Work on that in yourself!

It’s OKAY if you try and then fall off the wagon… Just don’t stop trying, keep fighting until you win the battle between you and your nafs.

Ask yourself. Would you marry the male/female version of yourself? Honestly…

Everything that you want. Everything you wish, dream, hope and pray for in a spouse… Work on that in yourself no matter how small it seems - make your motivation the concept that good men are for good women and good women are for good men.

If Allaah subhaanahu wa ta'aala holds to account even an atoms worth of arrogance, surely He won’t let slide an atoms worth of good effort from you.

Work on yourself, repent for your shortcomings and weaknesses. Ask for strength and firmness, and do not worry. Have good hope in your Lord that He will reward you with what you are seeking.

Make du'aa & ask Him not to make your spouse a source of stress, trials and sadness, but rather, a source of comfort.

Before you start thinking that good men and women don’t exist anymore…

Ask yourself…
Are you one of them?
Do you deserve one of them?

رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

“Our Lord! Grant to us from our spouses & our offspring comfort (to) our eyes, & make us for the righteous a leader.”

(Qur-aan 25:74)
