I think this movie was way ahead of its time. Being done in the 70s it clearly and accurately depicits the true beginning of Islam. What is outstanding is the ability the director showed in describing the foundation of this Faith during the times of the Prophet while not including a character who plays His part thus respecting the Islamic tradition of not portraying their Leader. I give the movie a 5 star rating and encourage all those who are doubtful as to the true message of Islam to watch it and understand the commonly misused elements of this faith. It encompasses Islam's view on Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, knowledge, poverty, women's rights, treatment of people of other faiths and the true version of Jihad. For those who want the truth, unattached and independent of this age's media battery, this is the movie to watch.
