This is the epic story of the prophet Mohammad, whose holy revelations defied a pagan society and changed the world forever.

  • And now it Begins, The Story of Islam

    By M Bahareth
    A cinematic grand masterpiece with Oscar nominees to tell the story of the prophet Muhammad ( peace be upon him ) with accordance to islamic teachings by not showing his face or body part. This masterpiece explains the suffering injustice and prosecution the first muslims went through just to preserve their faith. This is a true story and the truest of all. It is in my opinion that this movie should be free for all mankind to watch. The real teaching of the prophet as it was stated in this movie. Discard all the misconceptions and watch islam in it's birth. The best way to understand someone is to learn about him. This is a chance to know about 1.4 Billion people on Earth , that is 29% of the population in our planet. I keep on watching this movie twice every year both in arabic and english versions in Ramadan & Hajj Times. Why do we fast ? Why do we do our pilgrimage? And why we are Muslims ? To find out more just watch this movie.

  • Can't see

    By Asantekamill
    A movie where the main protagonist's face is not shown!Had it not been for Islam's draconian practices, there was a real fascinating story here. Unlike other mythical prophets Mohammed's life and action's were very well documented and his life would make for a great movie about this controversial figure. But as is, it is an extremely dull movie.

    I am not Muslim but this movie gives non Muslims an understanding of the birth of this religion. What we are seeing now, ISIS, is not what this religion is all about. Great watch!
