Summary
This film traces the history of Islam, its origins, culture, philosophy, and astounding similarities to Christianity and Judaism. Founded about 1,400 years ago, Islam has grown into a world religion that today claims an estimated 1.2 billion devout believers worldwide, 3 to 6 million of them in the United States. It is also the fastest growing religion in the world. Current events have sparked a renewed interest in Islam. It is perhaps the most misunderstood religion in the world, and fanatical followers have used its doctrine to justify terrorist acts. This documentary reveals the real story, providing viewers with valuable insight into the Islamic faith
