This ambitious, wide-ranging documentary from the History Channel covers Muhammad's revelation, the growth of the Islamic religion and cultural matters that tend to puzzle non-Muslims about the ancient culture. Sacred sites are visited, and scholars such as Khaled About el Fadl are interviewed in this fascinating look at a faith that's held by millions throughout the world, but often misunderstood due to the actions of extremists.
This documentary serves as great visual for studying Islam in World History. Video notes will allow students to follow along and remain engaged as they take in valuable content. Notes can also be given as a homework assignment where students can view the film at home or on YouTube and turn in video notes the next day. This assignment also speaks to point of view and provides an alternative source and perspective for those studying in Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
