Tonight at 9pm after much controversy which I have previously highlighted BBC Two is to screen the first of a three part documentary about the life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
My support is predicated on the basis that the documentary has been commissioned by the outstanding Muslim head of Religion at the BBC Aaqil Ahmad, is presented by the equally outstanding Muslim journalist from Al Jazeera Rageh Omar and also directed by British Pakistani Muslim Director Faris Kermani of Crescent Films who was involved in "the Seven Wonders of the Muslim World".
As we Muslims approach Ramadan the importance of the wider non Muslim world gaining a sensitive understanding about Islam outside of the extreme agenda peddled by liars from Murdoch's empire is of paramount importance. The BBC themselves correctly say in their Press Release that this timely documentary offers a unique insight into the faith of Islam which I heartily agree with. My request to Non Muslims is please approach the documentary with an open heart which should then allow you to appreciate the remarkable last and final messenger of Allah (swt).
