Seven Wonders of the Muslim World 1x56
This visually stunning program traces the history and message of Islam by following the journeys of six young pilgrims from across the Muslim world to Mecca. It explores their lives and beliefs as well as the beautiful and historic mosques where they worship. They leave their homes and families, travel to Saudi Arabia, and share their responses to the culmination of their journey of a lifetime — the pilgrimage to Mecca, where the prophet Muhammed was born.
Within decades of the death of Muhammed, Islam spread fast and its history can be traced through the flowering of exquisite Muslim architecture. Over the next few hundred years, fabulous mosques from Spain to Iran, and from Turkey to Mali formed a focus of Muslim life, as they continue to do today. Seven Wonders of the Muslim World starts its journey at six of these locations and completes it at the mosque towards which all practicing Muslims turn when they pray.Share This Program
