As an outcome of worldview and the foundation of a school of thought, the style of life deals with human practices. The style of life reads through the ontological foundations and ideology (oughts and oughts-not) of any school of thought. Our individual and social practices are formed according to our ideology (oughts and oughts-not) which in turn depends on our views in ontology. Consequently, the relations managing individuals and societies of any school would vary according to the ontology of that school. Considering its ontological foundations, Islam has suggested a set of systematic oughts and oughts-not for humankind to walk through those strategies to reach the goals of perfection and transcendence. A religious comprehensive view dependant on the intellect, Holy Scripture (the Qur’an) and mysticism is the only method to offer some relatively harmonious understanding of religious sources, and some confidence in putting that understanding into practice. From among Muslim thinkers in Islamic studies, mention can be made to Ayatu al-allah Jawadi Amoli whose original and rich works, including Mafatihu al-Hayat (the Keys of Life), prove to be valid references for the study of the style of life. Ayatu al-allah Jawadi is one of the best and greatest knowledgeable Muslim scholars in different fields of Philosophy, Shari’a and hadith, and mysticism.
Modern media, in particular cinema and TV, as one of the most efficient and significant means, can be used by the scholars of any school of thought to analyze teach and introduce their ideas. The principles and constituents of art and religious media pave the way for Muslim scholars to introduce the Islamic style of life. Knowing the constituents of religious concepts as the contents in the structure of films as the form helps us present the religious style of life. It is possible then to represent the style of life in the form of film; however, there must be sound understanding of the constituents of represented contents in the film and a logical relation between the form and content.
