Riyadh: Iranian TV series Yousuf Al Seddiq (Joseph the Honest) being aired by some Arab TV satellite channels has been rejected by the Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) Academy of the Makkah-based Muslim World League (MWL).

The academy said the ban was made on grounds that the series violates an earlier fatwa issued by the academy prohibiting impersonation of all prophets including the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and his family.

Yousuf Al Seddiq TV series was produced in 2008 by the Iranian company Sima Film. It tells the story of Yousuf in the palace of the king of Egypt when the king's wife sought to seduce him to do an evil act.
