The BBC announced The Life Of Muhammad (saas), the prophet of 1.5 billion Muslims across the world, a three-part series presented by Rageh Omaar for BBC Two.
In a first for British television, from the director/producer of the acclaimed Seven Wonders Of The Muslim World, Faris Kermani (Crescent Films), The Life Of Muhammad (saas) charts the extraordinary story of our beloved Prophet (saas) who, in little more than 20 years, changed the world by the leave of Allah.
In a journey that is both literal and historical, Rageh Omaar travels to the place of Hazrat Muhammad (saas) birth to re-trace the actual footsteps of the Prophet; from humble beginnings in Mecca, to his struggles with accepting his Prophetic role, his flight to Medina, to the founding of the first Islamic constitution, and his subsequent military and political successes.
Rageh Omaar says: "I am extremely pleased to be presenting this exciting and groundbreaking series about this extraordinary man, Muhammad (saas) – the Prophet of Islam. The details of Muhammad"s life really are little known, and I hope that my series will – for many – shine a light on the very beginning of Islam, taking viewers to the heart of this faith, illustrating just how Muhammad"s life and legacy is as important today as it was a over a thousand years ago."
