Best Islamic Series "Awesomeness"
28 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Inspiring series, see real life heroes in action, a lot to learn from as quoted "The production explicitly showcases the path of "Al Farrouq" and the characteristics of equality, good governance, justice, tolerance, wisdom, compassion and leadership among others. It further sheds light on the personal values of the Khalifa"

Awesome direction and superb acting by almost all of the actors, seems like you are back in the days...

One of the best Islamic productions ever made. The series starts with the life of Umar (RA) in the pre-Islamic Arabia, and then continues with his life at the time of the mission of the prophet (PBUH), his conversion to Islam, the caliphate of Abu Bakr (RA) and finally, the Caliphate of Umar (RA) himself. The series is as accurate as it was possible without showing the prophet (PBUH).

The series is very well made. One of the most positive points of the series is that it lays great emphasis on the teachings of Islam, and how they changed the society of the time from the days of ignorance and injustice to the justice of Islam. It shows the efforts and the sacrifices of the companions of the prophet in spreading the message of Islam.

The Series really touches the heart. It increases the love of the companions.

In the end, all that I would like to say is that, although the series may not be perfect in every sense, it is a source of a lot of good. It is a series not to missed.
