Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet
This historical documentary on prophet Mohammed (scw) is made by American authors and religion researchers (at PBS TV) and posted at Youtube.
The Story of the Man
Who Changed The World in 23 Years and Continues to Influence It
Today. His father died before he was born, and his mother died when
he was only six. But sheltered by a powerful uncle, he made a good
start in life, established himself in a profitable business and
married well. Then, at the age of 40, he was transformed. A man who
could not read or write, he announced that he was the prophet of
God. His name was Muhammad, and in the next 23 years he would bring
peace to the warring pagan tribes of Arabia and establish the
religion of Islam, which today has 1.2 billion followers.
Three years in the making, Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet, travels in the footsteps of the prophet to the Arabian desert and the holy city of Mecca where much of Muhammad's story unfolded. But the film does not just stay in the past. Much of it's story is told through the observations of contemporary American Muslims, including a fireman at the World Trade Center on September 11, a second generation Arab-American family building a community based on Islamic principles, a Congressional Chief of Staff working for justice, and a refugee fleeing religious persecution, whose experiences in some way echo Muhammad's life. With some of the world's greatest scholars on Islam providing historical context and critical perspective, Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet is history in the present tense. It tells of intrigue and faith, bitter persecution and the birth of a holy book, brutal war and brilliant diplomacy in a desert environment where tribal allegiance was often the only protection.
This is an excellent resource for people seeking knowledge about the beginnings of Islam, as well as a better understanding of the millions of American Muslims who regard Muhammad as the Last Prophet. [Source: Youtube....]
