    Haris Durrani has a different reading. He contends that the story’s Islamic influences go deeper than mere set dressing and that despite its many issues, the story reflects a much more nuanced critique of colonialism and messianic authority — one deeply rooted in author Frank Herbert’s surprisingly sophisticated understanding of Muslim theology.

    Yet still, Durrani says, there is a lot to criticize. He points out that despite the Middle East-inspired setting, none of the major characters is portrayed in the film adaptation by actors from Middle Eastern backgrounds. It’s symptomatic, he argues, of Hollywood’s long-running reliance on Orientalist tropes and preconceptions. But a new generation of Muslim science fiction writers may be poised to finally change that.

    what? I am lost here  . are you guys talking about   Franklin Patrick Herbert Jr. (October 8, 1920 – February 11, 1986)?  that American science fiction author?? 

    Did Herbert  say that.,  his 1982  children book  God Emperor of Dune related or based on  science in Islam ??  and it is Islamic Science Fiction??

    Do not let silence become your legacy.. Question everything

    Podcast: Islam and Science Fiction
    Islam and science fiction have more history together than you might expect. In this episode, we speak with Jörg Matthias Determann about the many ways science has fueled the imagination of people in Muslim-majority contexts over the last few hundred years. In his latest book, he shows how artists and missionaries participated in "cultures of astrobiology," or the study of life on other planets. Exploring the ways that a variety of authors, artists, and governments have imagined a future with and for Muslims, Matthias shows that there are many overlapping and competing visions of Muslim Futurism.
