This special tells the story of the 7th-century prophet who changed world history in 23 years and continues to shape the lives of more than 1.2 billion people. This lively, thorough and honest portrait of the man and the prophet takes viewers to ancient Arabian sites where Muhammad's story unfolded and into the homes, mosques and workplaces of some of America's approximately seven million Muslims to discover the many ways in which they follow Muhammad's example. With some of the world's leading scholars on Islam providing historical context and critical perspective, viewers learn not only who Muhammad was, but also what most American Muslims believe Islam teaches and how their beliefs are increasingly shaping society. Actor Andre Braugher narrates.
