Commercial For Islam
16 March 2015 | by (Victoria, BC. Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a commercial for Islam. It puts it in the best possible light. It simply ignores the horror. Further, it just assumes all the supernatural claims of Islam are true, without question. Today if a person had experiences similar to Muhammad's, we would presume schizophrenia, epilepsy or other brain problem. The authors of the film make the same presumptions the people of 1400 years ago made of his visions, completely ignoring modern interpretations.

People unfairly judge Muhammad for not being an 21st century feminist, even though he did more than anyone in his time to advance women's rights. This film sets that right. Unfortunately, Islam froze any advances since Muhammad, missing the point of his teaching. They skirted the 9-year old bride issue.

Karen Armstrong asserts "I am absolutely sure that Muhammad loved his wife Kadija. It was not just a marriage for money or convenience." But she give no evidence of any kind to explain why she thinks that. The whole film works this way, making assertions without telling you why the author holds those assertions.

Karen Armstrong asserts the ineffable beauty of the Arabic poetry of the Qur'an. How could she possibly know that without learning Arabic? What she meant was that Arabic speaking Muslims had told her it was unusually beautiful.
