In the year 600 A.D. a wind swept across the Arabian desert, where, in the little town called Mecca, an illiterate orphan named Muhammad came to be the prophet to whom the word of God was revealed - and the world was changed forever. Herein lies the beginning of the faith known as Islam, a religion that today claims over one billion devout believers throughout the planet. Yet it is a faith more misunderstood than any other in the history of mankind.This brilliantly produced film takes us on a journey through the Story of Islam, from its humble beginnings 1300 years ago, to its place in the world today. We are introduced to the culture, philosophy and staples of this way of life, which is rapidly being embraced by many in the West. If you are not familiar with the principles of Islam, you will be surprised - perhaps even shocked - to learn of the amazing similarities between the Muslim, Christian, and Judaic faiths.

This promo video skips a lot of important facts about islam. I would call it propaganda. Starts our with some unlikely ideas ... that Yemen and the area was a centre point of middle east commerce and had a high economy prior to the Prophet.

Odd some fact slips through. If a woman gets divorced she get support for 3-4 months and if she is pregnant only until the baby is born. (they talk about a man and his wife going together to get a divorce -- they don't mention that all a man has to do is say "I divorce you" 3 times and for a woman it is almost impossible) She better save that money because she need to support the child without support until it is 7 at which time the father gets thew child back.
