Muhammad – The Last Prophet
Muhammad The Last Prophet is an animated production of the early days of Islam. This cartoon film aims to introduce Islam and the last and final Prophet Muhhamad (PBUH) to children and adults alike. The prophet is not personified in any way or form. Muhammad the last prophet is the story of Islam and is a must see for all faiths.
The Message – The Story of Islam
It is the 7th century and in Mecca, where powerful leaders are in conflict with Muhammad who attacks the many injustices their way of life produces – slavery, drunkeness and cruelty. Muhammad(SAWS) claims to have seen a vision of the Angel Gabriel and calls to the people of mecca to worship one God only. After a revelation from God, Muhammad agrees to take arms against Mecca and at the Wells of Badr the inexperienced Muslim troops are victorious. However, at the Battle of Uhud they are beaten. They accept a ten year truce, so that they can continue to spread the word of God. Muhammad is the Prophet….The Messenger of God.
The Life of Prophet Muhammad
In a ground-breaking first for British television, presented by Rageh Omaar charts the life of Muhammad(SAWS), a man who – for the billion and half Muslims across the globe – is the messenger and final prophet of God.
In a journey that is both literal and historical, and beginning in Muhammad’s(SAWS) birthplace of Mecca, Omaar investigates the Arabia Muhammad(SAWS) was born into – a world of tribal loyalties and polytheistic religion.
Drawing on the expertise and comment of some of the world’s leading academics and commentators on Islam, the programme examines Muhammad’s(SAWS) first marriage to Khadijah and how he received the first of the revelations that had such a profound effect both on his life, and on the lives of those closest to him.

His journey reveals the debt owed to Islam for its vital contribution to the European Renaissance.
Islam – Empire Of Faith
Between the fall of Rome and the European voyages of discovery, few events were more significant than the rise of Islam. Within a few centuries, the Islamic empires blossomed, projecting their power from Africa to the east Indies, and from Spain to India. Inspired by the words of the Prophet Muhammed, and led by caliphs and sultans, this political and religious expansion remains unequaled in speed, geographic size and endurance. Islam: Empire Of Faith is narrated my Academy Award – winning actor Ben Kingsley. The three-hour program tells the spectacular story of the great sweep of Islamic power and faith during its first 1,000 years – from the birth of the Prophet Muhammed to the peak of the Ottoman Empire under the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent. Historical re-enactments and a remarkable exposition of Islamic art, artifacts and architecture are combined with interviews of scholars from around the world to recount the rise and importance of early Islamic civilization. Increasingly, scholars and historians are recognizing the profound impact that Islamic civilization has had on Western culture and the course of world history.
How the Khilafah was destroyed
This documentary details the rise and fall of the Khilafah State. Addressing the plots and plans of the kuffar, this video sheds light on how the nations of the world conspired against the great Khilafah.
Children of Gaza
During the Israeli attack on Gaza in 2008, 1,300 Palestinians died and 4,000 homes were destroyed. Less visible was the devastating impact on the children of Gaza, whose family members were killed and their homes reduced to rubble. This film gives some idea of what they endured and how they will grow up — and there is nothing here to offer any hope for the future. The children play war games and pretend to torture one another. Nightmares are common. The blockade means that their families are unable to rebuild their homes or get medical treatment abroad.
Taxi To The Dark Side
Taxi to the Dark Side accomplishes what a documentary, or just a concise analysis, regarding all of the facts in one of the many nightmares the United States’ involvement in the middle east should: to inspire the utmost disgust and condemnation of a system that has become as corrupt as it has (or rather always has been with this bunch). It’s uncontainable to think how all of this started, grew exponentially, and resulted ultimately in the horrors at Abu Gharyb and Guantanamo Bay, in that it is nestled in the twisted, criminal (yes folks, criminal) ‘policies’ of the Bush administration. But Alex Gibney’s approach isn’t narrow-minded but multi-faceted: he’s interested in what a complex, ugly organism torture has become, the psychological just as much as the physical, and he has a man at the center of it. Dilawar, an innocent taxi driver from a poor farm in Afghanistan, was swept up by three other Afghan soldiers and sent to Bagram prison, where along with other supposed terrorists or terrorist collaborators was tortured (in his case especially in brutal fashion, as we learn in graphic description from those who participated first-hand), and died from the trauma.
Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land
Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land provides a striking comparison of U.S. and international media coverage of the crisis in the Middle … all » East, zeroing in on how structural distortions in U.S. coverage have reinforced false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This pivotal documentary exposes how the foreign policy interests of American political elites–oil, and a need to have a secure military base in the region, among others–work in combination with Israeli public relations strategies to exercise a powerful influence over how news from the region is reported.
Palestine is Still the Issue
John Pilger returns to the Occupied Territories of the West Bank and Gaza where, in 1974, he filmed a documentary with the same title about the same issues, a nation of people – the Palestinians – forced off their land and later subjected to a military occupation by Israel. This was an occupation condemned by the United Nations and almost every country in the world, including Britain. But Israel is backed by a very powerful friend, the United States. Pilger finds that 25 years later the basic problems remain unchanged: a desperate, destitute people whose homeland is illegally occupied by the world’s fourth biggest military power. What has changed is that the Palestinians have fought back. Stateless and humiliated for so long, they’ve risen up against Israel’s huge military machine, although they themselves have no arms, no tanks, no American planes and gun ships or missiles.
