Children's and YA lit also has:
The Shadow Speaker by Nnedi Okorafor-- Ejimafor "Ejii" Ugabe
Habibi by Naomi Shahib Nye -- Liyana
Shabanu: Daughter of the Wind By Suzanne Fisher Staples -- Shabanu
Samir and Yonatan by Daniella Carmi -- Samir

Mitali Perkins's Sameera Righton may or may not qualify for this list -- born Muslim, I'm pretty sure she's being raised Christian, but there are Muslim/Hindu conflicts in her romantic life, so it's not entirely irrelevant to her.

These are not all unproblematic, but that's what fic is for, right?

There's a good slate of picturebooks but I think those are less what you are looking for. And a fair amount more books, but many of them I don't know.

scaramouche: Dorothy's ruby slippers (ruby slippers)
From: [personal profile] scaramouche
How about the various film/tv adaptations of One Thousand and One Nights?

The only one I know well is the 2000 Hallmark film Arabian Nights, which incorporates a fair deal of Islamic culture, and the main characters are clearly Muslim. A personal highlight for me was when the genie of the lamp says الحمد لله when he grants a wish for Aladdin.

There's also a main character on a very popular Israeli soap called HaAlufa (and by popular I mean it was the hottest thing on primetime), Jalal Kassum. I've never watched the show (I'm not much of a soap person) but I've seen him all over in ads and clips and whatnot and I do know he's a Muslim character (who has an affair with one of the Jewish characters).

So, um. There's him, if he counts for the purposes of this list.

Dani Reese, the main character of the TV show Life, has an Iranian mother. I'm pretty sure we don't know what her religion is and she "celebrated" Christmas like everyone else, but she does speak Farsi in one episode, and the actress who plays her is also half Iranian. :/

Also, if you're okay with Israeli films -- there are a bunch, but The Band's Visit is from 2007 and is relatively known abroad too, with a bunch of awards from Cannes and lots of English dialogue. Muslim characters include Lieutenant-colonel Tawfiq Zacharya, Haled, and the rest of the band members.

I also forgot I bookmarked a website devoted to Islam and Science Fiction (http://islamscifi.com/).

devilc: Jupiter in her wedding tiara with the word "imagine" (Default)
From: [personal profile] devilc
Fiction Movies:

My Beautiful Laundrette, although it's never (IIRC) explicitly stated that Hussein family is Moslem, being that their culture is Brit-Pakistani, it's a safe guess Also: Canonical M/M relatonship and a woman character with an important role.

Land of Plenty, while it's not canonically stated that Hassan and Youssef are Moslem, it's probable given they're Pakistani ex-pats. (This movie is a huge critique of moslem=terrorist, mindset btw.)

Hurt Locker does show some terrorists/insurgents, the most developed Iraqi charaters, "Beckham" and Prof Nabil are not.

Documentary:

Inside Mecca -- a great documentary about several very different people and their pilgrimage to Mecca.

The Eagle, Danish TV show has Nazim Talawi as a member of the otherwise traditionally Danish cop team.

Also, since I'm here and it's not on your list: in Vikram Seth's A Suitable Boy (Historical/realistic novel) there's a number of Muslim characters, particularly the Khan and Durrani families, and Hindu/Muslim differences are a continuing theme.

Can I suggest Deeba Resham, the hero of China Mieville's YA book 'Un Lun Dun'?

It's never made explicit, but given her name and the fact that her brother's called Hass, it seems fair to suppose she's a Muslim Londoner, of Pakistani extraction?

Because I've been exposed to this amazing show only recently, on Parashat HaShavua there's Manar and Amir El Nashaf who are main characters and are Muslim and various friends and family (as recurring characters).

There's also the Israeli film Ajami where most of the characters are Muslim, with main characters including: Nasri, Omar, Malek and Binj.

Tariq Ali's Islam Quintet (Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree, The Book of Saladin, The Stone Woman, A Sultan in Palermo, Night of the Golden Butterfly)has a number of Muslim characters.

Amitav Ghosh's Sea of Poppies has Azad Naskar (Jodu), his mother, and his father's extended family. I also think some of the Lascars are Muslim, but I don't have the book handy to check.
