Trivia

In accordance with Muslim beliefs, Mohammed could not be depicted on screen nor could his voice be heard. This rule extended to his wives, his daughters and the 4 Caliphs (Abu Bakr, Omar, Othman, Ali). This left Mohammed's uncle Hamza as the central character (played by the Egyptian actor Abdallah Gheith ) See more »

Quotes

Narrator: If this Coran were revealed to a mount, it would collapse even off feared Allah, the Great, said the truth. The Prophet, elected official by Allah to carry what the mountains can not, is too great and inaccessible to be represented by a human. For that we will not see nor his image neither his voice nor his shade, throughout this film.
