Jomblo Fi Sabilillah Synopsis

This film tells us the story of the friendship of 4 single men who are ‘Jomblo Fi Sabilillah’. In Islam we know Jihad Fi Sabilillah where as muslims we fight in the way of Allah.

Apart from that, social pressure is currently so strong that if you don’t have a girlfriend, it will be difficult to find a proper partner to marry and the urge from within becomes even stronger. For a single person, Fi Sabilillah, this is a form of test that sometimes he cannot face alone. He needs closest friends on the same frequency who give the best support and are not misleading.

The film centers on 30-years-old Ali. He has never dated at all. He also doesn’t have any close female friends. Apart from that, Ali also suffers from a phobia which is quite disturbing. Venustraphobia affected Ali quite badly. Ali can panic and be so afraid that he faints when he meets a woman. This is quite a torturous situation for Ali because his father, Babe Hasan, has forced him to get married within a month.

His father was very worried that his only son couldn’t fall in love with a woman and had a sexual disorder. Moreover, there are LGBT issues that are quite widespread in modern life. Ali then asks his fellow single closest friends for help to guide him in finding a soul mate.

During their time as Jomblo Fi Sabilillah, Yusuf, Imron, Anton and Ali always manage to take good care of themselves so that they don’t end up dating, let alone not being married. Meanwhile, Yusuf is also trying hard for his own love. Then he also persuades Anton and Imron to help Ali in various ways in meeting his future life partner despite his disturbing venustraphobia.
