Editorial Reviews

In 7th century Mecca, powerful leaders are in conflict with Muhammad who attacks the many injustices their way of life produces - slavery, drunkeness and cruelty. Muhammad claims to have seen a vision of the Angel Gabriel and calls to the people of Mecca to worship one God only. After a revelation from God, Muhammad agrees to take up arms against Mecca and leads a group of inexperienced Muslim troops to victory at the wells of Badr. However, in the wake of their subsequent defeat at the Battle of Uhud, Muhammad and his followers accept a ten-year truce, allowing them to continue spreading the word of God. Muhammad is the prophet...The Messenger of God.

Format: DVD
Years ago after my first visit to Egypt, the University of Minnesota sponsored a film festival of Egyptian made films and this was one among them. Although it features film stars with whom many of us will already be familiar, Irene Pappas, Anthony Quinn and Michael Ansara, it was directed by a Moslem director, Moustapha Akkad, and has the stamp of approval of the Al Azhar Mosque and University (the oldest University in the world and an institution much respected in the Islamic world for its Koran scholarship).
While it carries a religious message for Islamic people--in fact I saw parts of it again on Saudi TV as part of the Ramadan season's celebration while I was working in Tabouk--it also explains in a sympathetic way for Western viewers many of the basic tenets of Islam. It is as moving a story in its own way as the stories of the New Testament are for Christians, and it portrays the essence of what Moslems believe about Mohamed and their faith. The simplicity and straight forwardness of the tale as it portrays the sacrifices of plain people for their convictions and the ultimate triumph of good over evil will appeal to anyone with a sense of fair mindedness regardless of ones religious convictions. The light in which it places Christians cannot fail to impress. Mohamed's more vulnerable followers are told to seek asylum with the King of Abyssinia (modern day Ethiopia), because as a Christian king he was their "brother" and bound by the "book" to protect them from their oppressors, which indeed he does! Nor are the Jews spoken ill of in the tale.
The actual cinematography is a little dated, and the story can be a little postured, but no more than any other film of the 1960-1970s.

I am not a Muslim, however, this movie presents a very historical and true picture of the struggles of Islam and the development of this religion. This is a movie you will enjoy watching regardless of your religious preference. I found myself having a much greater understanding of Muslims and a very deep respect for their faith after viewing this film. I highly recommend it for anyone and all ages. I am very surprised this movie was not a box office smash. One of the best I have ever seen......it answers a lot of questions and presents some great opportunities for interfaith understanding. As an American this film was a special "eye opener" for me.

One of the finest movies on Islam ever made. It is a movie made for those looking for an objective portrayal of the worlds fastest growing faith, Islam. The movie should help dispel and refute the lies and fraud that the popular news media portrays on Islam.... It is truly a great movie. Being a Moslem by birth, I am happy to see a very historical, true and accurate picture of the struggles of Islam and the development of this religion. This is a movie I enjoyed watching and I think that anyone would enjoy watching regardless of his or her religious preference. I found myself having a much greater understanding of my own heritage and a very deep respect for Christianity and Jewish faiths after watching this movie. The fact that Islam, Christianity and Judaism were good friends of one another during the time of our prophet is greatly overlooked by all the three religions. I think that it is a pity that the three religions that share so much in common, worship the same God, spent so much time fighting one another. I highly recommend it for anyone and all ages. I am very surprised this movie was not a box office smash. Again, it is one of the best I have ever seen...it answers a lot of questions and presents some great opportunities for interfaith understanding.

Bismillah ar-rahman ir-rahim. This movie is a MUST SEE for all muslims and anyone interested in Islam. As a recent convert to Islam I found this movie to be truly moving and an educational experience. It should be required viewing for any college course on Western & Comparative Religion. It truly captures the feeling of 7th century Arabia and the hedonism of the Meccans at the time of the Prophet (PBUH). Moustapha Akkad does a wonderful job directing the film and deserves kudos for getting approval from the religious authorities of Al-Azar and the Shiat on the script (as explained in the thorough documentary on the making of the film). Maurice Jarre (who composed the score for Lawrence of Arabia) does a wonderful job setting the tone for this movie with his wonderful score. The only aspect of this film I found disconcerting was when the characters would address the camera directly when speaking to the Prophet (PBUH), essentially putting the audience in the Prophet's shoes. I agree with the filmmakers that the Prophet (PBUH) should not be shown and they did a good job of making his presence felt even though he is neither seen nor heard throughout the movie. Anthony Quinn does a great job as Hamza, the Prophet's (PBUH) uncle and Irene Pappas is convincing as the wicked, coniving Hind. When Bilal gives the first call to prayer it sent shivers down my spine. This movie is truly a gem and should be more easily available in stores especially in the post 9/11 environment. It would be great to see the DVD reissued in the USA with both the English and Arabic versions of the film (with two separate casts). WATCH THIS MOVIE! YOU WON'T REGRET IT! Salaam.
