Review
In the traditions of the Hollywood religious epic without the DeMille vulgarity. An account of the birth of Islam beginning with Mohammad's first visions and his crusade to bring a just and monotheistic religion to his people. The historical parallels of the ascendancy of Islam with early Christianity are heavily stressed; a persecuted minority gradually emerging victorious with large-scale conversions, religious toleration, slave, female, and even camel liberation!
