Muhammad:Legacy of a Prophet tells the story of the 7th century prophet who changed world history in 23 years, and continues to shape the lives of more than 1.2 billion people. Muhammad premiered nationally on PBS December 18, 2002. The Los Angeles Times called Muhammadâ€¦.a candid, thoughtful, flowing, visually stunning film â€¦that is as timely as documentaries get....this important film delivers again and again.â€
The film creates a detailed and intimate portrait of Muhammad, the man and the prophet. It takes viewers not only to ancient Middle Eastern sites where Muhammads story unfolded, but into the homes, mosques and workplaces of some of Americas seven million Muslims to discover the many ways in which they follow Muhammads example. A KQED presentation, Muhammad:Legacy of a Prophet was produced by Kikim Media and Unity Productions Foundation. To visit the PBS web site for Muhammad, CLICK HERE.
Long after its initial broadcast, Muhammad has had an enormous impact thanks to a unique collaboration with the producers of Frontlines Muslims. Together, the programs form the centerpiece of an extraordinary community engagement campaign and educational outreach effort, known as The Islam Project. According to the campaigns organizers, Active Voice, the project has been one of their most successful outreach campaigns ever.
