Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet

The story of the seventh century prophet who changed world history in 23 years



Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet tells the story of a man who changed the world 1,400 years ago and now lives in the United States through the lives of the millions of Americans who regard him as God's prophet. 2 hours.

It travels in the footsteps of Islam's Prophet Muhammad to the Arabian Desert and the holy city of Mecca where Muhammad's story unfolded. But the film does not just stay in the past. Much of its story is told through the observations of contemporary American Muslims, including a fireman at the World Trade Center on September 11, a second generation Arab-American family building a community based on Islamic principles, a Congressional Chief of Staff working for justice, and a refugee fleeing religious persecution, whose experiences in some way echo Muhammad's life.

With some of the world's greatest scholars providing historical context and critical perspective, Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet is history in the present tense. It tells of intrigue and faith, bitter persecution and the birth of a holy book, brutal war and brilliant diplomacy in a desert environment where tribal allegiance was often the only protection.

Two educational websites are based upon this film: PBS's Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet site and The Islam Project site.
