In a ground-breaking first for British television, this three-part series presented by Rageh Omaar charts the life of Muhammad, a man who – for the billion and half Muslims across the globe – is the messenger and final prophet of God.The Seeker. In a journey that is both literal and historical, and beginning in Muhammad’s birthplace of Mecca, Omaar investigates the Arabia Muhammad was born into – a world of tribal loyalties and polytheistic religion. Drawing on the expertise and comment of some of the world’s leading academics and commentators on Islam, the programme examines Muhammad’s first marriage to Khadijah and how he received the first of the revelations that had such a profound effect both on his life, and on the lives of those closest to him.

Holy Wars.Omaar assesses and shines a light on key events in Muhammad’s life including the Night Journey to Jerusalem, his life threatening departure from Mecca, through to the establishment of the Constitution of Medina and the eight year war with the Meccan tribes.

Holy Peace. Omaar analyses and investigates key events during the later part of his life, including the introduction of a moral code known as Sharia and the concept of Jihad. The programme also explores Muhammad’s use of marriage to build alliances, and looks at the key messages included in his final sermon.

In line with Islamic tradition the programme does not depict any images of the face of Muhammad, or feature any dramatic re-constructions of Muhammad’s life.

From this Article it's seemed to me that, What Rageh Omaar presented is really interesting. Muhammad (saw) was the greatest man of all the time, According to Islam. So the people of the world should know more about this great person. Omaar should be thanked for this kind of nice job. When we study about Rasul's (saw) birth, we find that he was from a renowned family, He was a orphan also. he has to struggle on his boyhood.

On the Holy wars part not Omaar focused only holy wars, but also other important parts of his life. His journey to Jerusalem on the night of Meradh is really very significant in the history of Islam. The political part of his life also focused on this part.

In the third part, Omaar basically focus on preaching of Islam. Building Shariah Law on the basis of Qur'an, sending soldiers and preachers outside Madinah etc. are focused on this part.

I Find this presentation really great.Thanks to Rageh Omaar and hope such kind of documentary will presented more to remove misconception about Islam and Muhammad (SAW)
