Bringing the Prophet's story to life has been an enormous challenge but it has given me a great appreciation for what Muhammad has accomplished for the world. --Director, Richard Rich

Product Description

From the creators of The King and I, The Fox and the Hound, and the Swan Princess comes the first animated feature length film about Islam's Prophet. This groundbreaking film is set around 1400 years ago during the early ages of Islam. The film relates the events that unfolded and led to the rise of a renewed religion in the Arabian Desert, eventually spanning 7 continents and counting 1.6 billion adherents around the world.

This movie aims to introduce the story of Islam and its Prophet to new generations in the appealing and accessible medium of animation. Though the Prophet is not personified, sound and cinematography are employed in the telling of his story. The film is capped off with a stunning soundtrack by Emmy-award winning composer William Kidd.

Perfect for the family and for encouraging interfaith dialogue, this film is a definite must-see!

When I bought this movie, I was merely curios of what the movie creators have to produce about Islam. However, after watching the movie, i highly recommend everyone to see it, Muslims and Non-Muslims.
The movie creators were sucessful in making a beatiful movie about the birth of Islam. It may not be the best movie ever and there are some main characters and events that were left out but in overall it's a wonderful introduction for those who want to know about the birth of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad(PBUH), whether they were Non-Muslims or Muslims.
The movie is beautifully supported with music, islamic songs and prayers, our Prophet's (PBUH) preaching and some quotes from the Holy Quaran.
I hope you enjoy it the way I did.

This DVD is really good. My kids have been watching it in both languages English and Arabic. It is very well done and moving at the same time. I like this DVD so much since it teaches kids about the life story of the Prophet Mohammed peace be upon him in a beautiful and easy way with nice illustrations. I recommand it for all ages. It is really good and full of sincerity.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for children April 27, 2012
Format:DVD
Perhaps made to emulate the success of Disney's "The Prince of Egypt", this vivid, beautiful and faithful-to-the-sources animated film is a great way to introduce children to the life of the Final Prophet, Muhammad, pbuh. For adults, however, the unsophisticated dialogue and exaggerated intonation in every voice can quickly become a bit grating. Adults will probably watch this once with their children, but thereafter leave the kids to watch it by themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Effort, Much Needed September 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There is a severe lack of decent programing for children dealing with Islam, so this fills a void. I look forward to watching other productions by these companies, as some projects are promised in the Extras, such as "Salman, The Persian."

Unfortunately, there are a few problems with the endeavor, most of them concern minor historical details. I understand the reason behind them - they would have been too confusing for children and so were omitted. However, some inaccuracies appear to be pointless - such as Ubaydah (RA) killing his opponent at Badr. Everything I have read indicates that Ali (KA) and Hamza (RA) intervened in that duel. Parents may wish to watch the movie with their children and fill in the blanks, as it were, depending on how old the children are.

I notice some people suggesting that this is a good movie for adults as well. I would suggest that "The Message" still remains the best movie I am aware of in that regard. Even so, this is a solid production and useful for Muslim children. Buy the product to encourage other productions of this nature!

5.0 out of 5 stars Muhammad very present, though never seen November 24, 2010
Format:DVD
My kids, who are 7 and 10, and I watched this video as part of our effort to learn a little about world history. This was a very nice introduction to the story of Muhammad and the beginnings of Islam. Told as an animated adventure film, it easily held our young audience captive throughout the 90 minutes. The film depicts Islam as a religion devoted to peace, equality among people, and helping others, and it also shows the conditions under which Muhammad sanctioned taking up arms and going to battle. The video relays the story of Muhammad and early Muslims taking refuge from the idolatrous Meccans in a tolerant, friendly Christian city. It accentuates commonalities between Islam and Christianity, and hints at the feasibility of coexistence between those two faiths. The film is creative, yet slightly awkward in working around the admonition not to depict Muhammad himself. But, just enough so to generate some conversation about that particular facet of Islamic practice - the effect is by no means disruptive to the story itself. I agree with other reviewers that the video is reasonable for non-Muslims who simply want to gain some awareness, as it conveys the original stories and essential spirit of the faith without overtly proselytizing. This is one of the kids' favorites on my recommended list of videos covering world history for younger audiences (see "learning history" on winstonsieck dot com for the full list).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie about Islam July 15, 2008
Format:DVD
When I bought this movie I did not think it would be this good, As a matter of fact it is GREAT! I liked it and most importantly my girls loved it. I wanted an entertaining way to give them a breif history of the beginning of Islam, and what can be better than a well produced and portrayed cartoon. It gave them so many questions to think about and enlighten their intelligent little brains about Islam and the prophet and why so many events that are regularly mentioned, happened and how it started to make sense to them now.
The audio features were great I wanted them to learn Arabic and this was a great start since their surrounding language is English in school and daily life. The other DVD with the songs was also of a unique nature although I missed Sami Yousif and wished that there would be video clips instead of only audio streams. However the selections were great and we loved them.
Awesome film!!!
