In the year 600 A.D. a wind swept across the Arabian Desert where, in a little town called Mecca, an illiterate orphan named Muhammad came to be the seal of the prophets to whom the Word of God was revealed- and the world was changed forever. As did Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus, Muhammad was sent as a mercy to mankind calling to the Oneness of God. This one mans message now claims over one billion people across the planet all testifying to the same basic principle. However, it is a faith more misunderstood than any other.
This brilliantly produced film takes us on a journey through The Story of Islam, from its humble beginnings to what it has grown to today. We are introduced to the culture, philosophy and staples of the Islamic faith, which is rapidly being embraced by many in the West. If you are not familiar with the principles of Islam, this film will provide a strong foundation to your understanding of this all-encompassing way of life.

Though it occassionally gives inaccurate information, (ie claiming Prophet Muhammad learned about Monotheism from Christians and Jews during his travels) the inaccurancies are not as significant as the information it does give about ISLAM.
Since it is a Western based historical account, the video holds some Eruo-centric assumptions, but is a wonderful example worthy of being an introduction to non-Muslims, since it is not published by Muslims, but rather non-Muslims.
I was quite surprised by it's depth since it went way beyond the Arab cultures. I encourage others to consider this video in their resource library.
Besides the fact that it's dated, all it does is glorify the, expansionist, movement of the islamic people across the world. This is the same thing Alexander the Great did, the Romans, the Mongols, etc. The biggest difference seemed to be the islams said it was in the name of their God. Everyone else at least admitted it was for power, and conquest.
There was very little information about the islamic faith.
A complete waste of time.
