Chart the extraordinary story of a man who, in little more than 20 years, changed the world. In a journey both literal and historical, host Rageh Omaar (pictured) travels to the place of Muhammad’s birth to retrace the footsteps of the prophet, from his humble beginnings in Mecca to his struggles with accepting his prophetic role, from his flight to Medina and the founding of the first Islamic constitution to his subsequent military and political successes and failures — through to his death and his legacy.

This special night of programming on witf includes three parts to the Life of Muhammad:

  • Part 1 at 8:00pm - The Seeker - Examine the world into which Muhammad was born, his marriage to Khadijah and his first revelations.
  • Part 2 at 9:00pm - Holy Wars - Review key events in Muhammad’s life, including the Night Journey to Jerusalem and departure from Mecca.
  • Part 3 at 10:00pm - Holy Peace - Examine the evolution of important concepts, including the moral code known as Shari‘a and jihad.
