Movie Reviews

Great Mistake
Paul | 07/30/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The video does make a mistake in caying that Muhammad learnt religion from christians and jews. It does go into history of islam and the caliphates. A good intro to the topic. The prophet Mohamed Peace upon to him didn't learn from Jews and Christians; Jews and christians of his Time didn't say anything. This video is propaganda of Jews and christians."
Well explained, though Euro-centrally based history

"This video is a very good video, providing a good historical framework of the religion. Though the video is dated and is obviously a remake of 1970's film, it still provides a wonderful explaination of Islamic history.Though it occassionally gives inaccurate information, (ie claiming Prophet Muhammad learned about Monotheism from Christians and Jews during his travels) the inaccurancies are not as significant as the information it does give about ISLAM. Since it is a Western based historical account, the video holds some Eruo-centric assumptions, but is a wonderful example worthy of being an introduction to non-Muslims, since it is not published by Muslims, but rather non-Muslims.I was quite surprised by it's depth since it went way beyond the Arab cultures. I encourage others to consider this video in their resource library."
If you want to learn Islam. do some where else

"The video is a sole propaganda against Islam by the producton house which made it.
They dont even admit that Muhammad ( Peace be upon Him ) was a prophet.
Its totally baseless and useless effort. looks like a work of fiction then history."
Find another video

"I'm not Muslim, and don't know as much about Islam as other reviews seem to. What I do know is that this is not a very interesting video. I got it to use with 6th graders studying the origins of Islam. I found only about a 7 minute segment which was usable in a classroom setting. The rest was very tedious and just plain boring. (I usually show 15-25 minutes of documentary video, which is all that holds their attention at that age. But it was hard to get then to sit through just 7 minutes of this.) I got rid of it after using it one year, and have ordered a PBS video on Islam which will hopefully work out better."
