A very well-done, interesting, historical, extensive Documentary! A real eye-opener! Much research was done, and many experts around the world commenting! Includes a discussion of views on certain topics and historical acts! Both sides are given, which shows integrity! Still, I wonder if there is a bias!
It would be great if there were more volumes done, to elaborate more on certain subjects, areas and certain times in history!
I highly recommend it as an Introductory Summary of the life of this Prophet!

I thought this was an excellent introduction to the life story of Muhammad and some of the basic tenets of Islam. There is discussion of the passages in the Koran which have been used to support violence, and also of Sharia Law. Would recommend this video to anyone who does not know much about this man or the faith as an introduction and a way of understanding that not everything that is done in the name of Islam is in keeping with what the Prophet actually taught.

very informative about how Islam was begun by Muhammad and the struggles and triumphs in his lifetime. As with Christianity and with Judaism, there are fault lines in Islam that have grown deep and wide over the centuries leaving large groups of believers who strongly disagree with each other and their roots. Having learned the history, I would now like to see a PBS series about the divides in these 3 major religious traditions and how that contributes to the state of conflict in our world today.

An informative and insightful documentary that looks at the life of Muhammed and the path of his followers since his death. Much about the Muslim faith, its history, contradictions, and beliefs are explored. The series gives the outsider more of an understanding into the complicated role it plays today, as well as the way it can be misinterpreted.
