Did You Know?


This movie will be part of a trilogy. Muhammad will never be shown in any of the three films for the respect of his character. This is specifically done in all media in Islam countries to avoid idolization of a renown character to an actor's face. Instead, he is meant to be known by his religious and historical personality profile. See more »

A film that depicts Muhammad from a much needed perspective
30 August 2015 | by syedaliimrannaqviSee all my reviews

I have never left a review before, but after watching this movie in theaters (I am an international student in Iran) I really wanted to express my joy at it. The visuals and sound in the movie surprised me right from the get go; I did not expect them to be this good. There were perhaps some minor areas where there could have been some improvements (more post-production and editing related), but other than that it is definitely a must watch. I hope they get really professional dubbing or sub-titling done, as a lot of non-Persian speakers will be interested in watching this movie.

In terms of the story line, the movie tried to be as honest as possible - avoiding any blatant Shia-Sunni differences. It claimed to make use of historical reports that are famously accepted by both the sects and it more or less seems to have lived up to it.
