This is a beautiful, touching movie. The technique...using the action to drive the narration rather than a "voice of God" narrator, draws us into the lives of these beautiful young children. They are far from home, away from everything familiar, thrust into an international competition. It is really a remarkable piece of documentary filmmaking. The children are drawn from very different countries, yet all devoted to memorizing the Koran. They illustrate through their daily lives the diversity of the world's one billion Muslims. Just a terrific movie.

A very nice documentary that tells the story of three young kids who come from totally different backgrounds, didn't know any Arabic, but were able to memorize the whole Quran and participate in an international contest in Egypt. Very inspiring and motivating ESP for kids who are learning the Quran. Good for both Muslims and non Muslims to watch.

It really is a touching story. While I don't agree with some of the parents or judges- it is life and gives a true accounting of different cultures. In the beginning the shaik explains this and then we see the story unfold.

There's not much to say except it is well worth the cost of the film. Excellent documentary. I would suggest it to anyone who is interested in seeing a side of Islam that is not shown in the main stream media.
