Movie Reviews

Terrific introduction for some and a teriffic refresher for
Thomas E Dembinski | Abu Dhabi, AE | 07/29/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The message is terrific introduction to the life and times of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). Few media vehicles serve as both an introduction and a good quality refresher on this cornerstone time period in Islamic history that is both entertaining and informative. Highly recommended for those who enjoy period pieces and those seeking knowledge on the life and times of the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)."
Touching and Sensational
F. Tanvir | Chicago,IL USA | 05/10/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great moving film. The first disc is the English (the original version); the second disc is formatted in Arabic. The menu is a bit abysmal, knowing that the standards in the dvds today require a cinematic background in the menu. Other than that, the movie is truly an inspirational and moving work of brilliance. Great acting combined with great and accurate cinematography about the beginnings of Islam."
Your first step...

"This movie is your first baby step if you like to understand and learn what really ISLAM is. The second step will be reading Quran and trying to associate what Allah is telling you with today's political/social/religious events. You are going to find extremely striking similarities between what you read and what you see/hear in today's world. And, also, you'll find out how much Islam has been twisted in practices in today's so called "Islamic nations", and certainly it's been a fashionable trend since 09/11 that many neo-con based media bashes Islam with unfounded allegations."
