In the year 600 A.D. a wind swept across the Arabian desert, where, in the little town called Mecca, an illiterate orphan named Muhammad came to be the prophet to whom the word of God was revealed - and the world was changed forever. Herein lies the beginning of the faith known as Islam, a religion that today claims over one billion devout believers throughout the planet. Yet it is a faith more misunderstood than any other in the history of mankind.
This brilliantly produced film takes us on a journey through the Story of Islam, from its humble beginnings 1300 years ago, to its place in the world today. We are introduced to the culture, philosophy and staples of this we. Z of life, which is rapidly being embraced by many in the West. If you are not familiar with the principles of Islam, you will be surprised - perhaps even shocked - to learn of the amazing similarities between the Muslim, Christian, and Judaic faiths.
