Movie Info

In accordance with Islamic law, director Moustapha Akkad's biopic of Mohammad never actually depicts the prophet himself, but rather outlines his story through the lives of certain cardinal figures in his life. Abu Sofyan (Michael Ansara), the leader of Mecca, Mohammad's uncle, Hamza (Anthony Quinn), and others chronicle the persecution of the earliest Muslims, their escape to Medina and their eventual victorious return to Mecca under the prophet's leadership.

    i like the way everyone has just put this film down in their "not interested" section. haha. it aint bad to be honest. shows ya the idea of islam isn't to go around blowing yourself up and killing random people even if ya think it is in this day an age. makes ya wonder where it all went wrong for the islamic faith. like any religion it's manipulated for personal gain sooner or later. yes, this does have anthony quinn in it as one of muhammeds right hand men. should have said left? which hand is it to eat? this film works because of atmosphere and build up. it was long but you barely notice the run-time. it's a smooth and easy ride through the life of a prophet

    Well made film. It helps to be interested in the offical story of Muhammad, otherwise this won't keep your interest.

    Hmm, right. I watched this movie when I was learning about Muhammad. I guess I watched it not for entertainment. It did help me. And It IS a good source. Even though they don't show Muhammad's face. But that just shows that Islam doesn't want to give out the wrong message.
